I THINK IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY THAT ALL 
PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO MOVE ABOUT FREELY IN 
THIS NATION, TO PURCHASE AND TO SELL. I DO NOT 
THINK THAT THERE SHOULD BE ANY RESTRICTIONS 
WHATSOEVER BASED UPON RACE, COLOR, CREED, 
ANCESTRY, OR RELIGION. I THINK THAT OUR LEGISLATION 
ATTEMPTED TO DO AWAY WITH SUCH RESTRICTIONS.
