Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 52
INTERVIEWER:

NOW LET ME ASK YOU THE FLIP SIDE OF THAT. AS A RESULT OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, WHAT DID WHITE PEOPLE GAIN FROM THAT?

Gov. George C. Wallace:

I think they have gained, I think they just generally gained anything when the impediment is removed from any people in our society who have been denied say the right to vote for so long. I think they felt a burden off themselves that this thing was now solved in that regard, and they want to go on to solving other problems such as finding more industrial job opportunities and more education advantages. And for blacks and whites and I was, our state was the last to give free textbooks I did that in my first administration because the black dropout was so high and I didn't want to see them out and I built these technical college and trade school through all sections of Alabama, drove them into school and back home, so so many black white people could go to college and tech school, and that's the reason lot of people voted for me in the black race too.
