Interview with Gov. George C. Wallace
QUESTION 53
INTERVIEWER:

SO WHAT I HEAR YOU SAYING IS… I JUST WANTED TO FOLLOW UP WHAT YOU WERE SAYING IN YOUR LAST ANSWER ABOUT, WHITE PEOPLE FEELING LIKE THE BURDEN WAS LIFTED OFF THEM, THEY COULD TURN TO OTHER ISSUES.

Gov. George C. Wallace:

The burden of this continuous harping and marching and demonstrating, they didn't like that, they do not like disturbances, they like peace and quietude and solitude and peaceful relationships, I think they glad it was all over and all done with and they got that out of it knowing that we were still friends as black and white people because there never was a single confrontation between blacks and whites during that time in Alabama, not a single time, that happened in other states, but not in Alabama.
