In a GQ Interview, Duck Dynasty Paterfamilias Phil Robertson Claims That He Saw Happiness and Contentment Among African-Americans During the Years of Jim Crow Segregation
Phil Robertson's race-related quotation in GQ is linked below.
“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field.... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”
---Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty, quoted in GQ
