Interview with Robert Moses
QUESTION 40
INTERVIEWER:

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHAT WAS—THE PARTY DIDN'T, THEY COULD NOT HEAR WHAT THEY WERE SAYING?

Robert Moses:

Well, I don't think that the Democratic Party to this day, has confronted the issue of bringing into its ranks the kind of people that were represented by the MFDP. That is the real underclass of this country. The Democratic Party primarily has organized around the middle class. And we were challenging them not only on the racial grounds, the obvious racial grounds but we were challenging them on the existence of a whole group of people who are the underclass of this country, white and black, who are not represented. And they weren't prepared to hear that, I don't know if they heard.
