Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 45
INTERVIEWER:

WHY DO YOU SUPPOSE THE MEDIA COVERAGE WAS AS IT WAS BACK IN THAT TIME?

Gov. George C. Wallace:

Its always been that way about the south, its always been we have been a nation of rednecks and low brow and I stood on my own on Meet the Press and Face the Nation with some of the toughest folks that been on television, they think they're smarter than anybody else, they think they're smarter than people down south. Most of them do, some of them believe the south sort of ashamed of the fact where they came from. I'm proud of the fact that I'm a southerner. I think if you look at what happened to us after the war between the states, with no martial aid or lend lease like we give our enemies in recent days which was the right thing to do, that the black and white people both suffered but they all joined together and hung on until now we are part of the sun belt that probably, probably the most envy of the free world, is the sun belt of which Alabama is a part of. Where it's a better place to live for black or white than you can find in many places in our country.
