"segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever"
George Wallace is cray. He was governor of Alabama and ran for president as a third party candidate in 1968. He actually won 5 states in the south, which is pretty impressive for a third party candidate and shows that people were pretty racist in dem late 1960s, not groovy, lol i’m hilar. But fo realz George Wallace’s popularity is a perf example of how many Americans at that time were tired of antiwar demonstrators and black power militants. Warren G Harding said it best when he said America wanted “a return to normalcy.”
