    George Wallace was one of America's most outspoken supporters of racial segregation in the 1960s. As governor of Alabama he fought integration, once even standing symbolically in the doorway of the University of Alabama to block two black students from enrolling there. (Many considered Wallace the leader of the opposition to Martin Luther King, Jr.)

    Absolutely NOT.

    He made use that Blacks went to poorly funded schools, which re-inforced his false prejudice that black people were inferior.

    Today, although there is no segregation, the poor can only go to poorly funded schools populated by kids with the worst problems at home, and in the community. In this way middle class society justifies its false claim that the poor will always be poor.
