Interview with Philip Watkins
QUESTION 14
JAMES A. DeVINNEY:

OK, now, I'd just like to go back now. It seems to me, from some of the things that I've heard and read, that there was a real issue, that it was kind of a Black and White kind of an issue. Can you explain that?

PHILIP WATKINS:

I think the inmates were probably just as racist, some of the inmates, were just as racist as some of the COs, I mean, this is just a natural thing in any group of people. I don't think the guards at Attica were any more racist than the, as a group, than any other group of people.
