So you believe the support by the NAACP against someone even more racist disproves that Wallace was a racist bastard? I do not.

"In order to survive and get ahead politically in the 1960s, he sold his soul to the devil on race." He adopted a hard-line segregationist stance and used this stand to court the white vote in the next gubernatorial election in 1962. When a supporter asked why he started using racist messages, Wallace replied, "You know, I tried to talk about good roads and good schools and all these things that have been part of my career, and nobody listened. And then I began talking about niggers, and they stomped the floor."
And you believe this disproves that Wallace was a racist bastard? I do not.
In both cases above, it takes a tremendous amount of assumption to get from what we're reading to what you're trying to claim. Reading comprehension, indeed.
