Strom Thurmond's Swimming Pool

About

"I wanna tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that there's not enough troops in the army to force the southern people to break down segregation and admit the nigger race into our theatres, into our swimming pools, into our homes and into our churches." -- Strom Thurmond, speaking at the 1948 breakaway 'Dixiecrat' Convention held by southern Democrats
