Phil Robertson: "Black People Were Happy In Pre-Civil Rights South"

Phil Robertson also discussed racism in the south in his controversial GQ interview, which got him suspended from A&E's "Duck Dynasty."

Asked whether he witnessed racism in the pre-Civil Rights south, Robertson, 67, was quoted as saying: "I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once."

Robertson explained: "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."

The Louisiana native went on: "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."

Just in case you have missed it, the reality star slammed gay people as sinners in his sitdown with the outlet.
