    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 2): GOLDWATER: "THE NEGRO IN AMERICA IS AN AMERICAN. HE'S NOT A MEMBER OF SOME NATION OR SOME TRIBE, AND I SAY TRIBE BECAUSE WE HAVE INDIANS, AND THEY BRANCH OFF INTO TRIBES. HE HAS NO PLACE TO GO BUT BEING AN AMERICAN, AND HE SPEAKS THE SAME LANGUAGE AS EVERYBODY IN AMERICA SPEAKS. OVER HERE, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, THERE ARE ABOUT EIGHT DIFFERENT NATIONS IN SOUTH AFRICA; THE WHITE MAN AND THE BANTU HIT THE COUNTRY AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME, THERE WERE THE HOTENTOTS AND THERE WOULD PROBABLY BE ONE OR TWO OTHERS HERE BEFORE THE WHITE MAN. BUT I THINK WHAT YOU'RE DOING OVER HERE CERTAINLY SHOULD BE GIVEN A TRIAL. I DON'T THINK THIS KIND OF SOLUTION WOULD EVER WORK IN THE UNITED STATES - WE HAVE TO FIND OTHER SOLUTIONS AND OUR SOLUTIONS WOULD NOT WORK IN SOUTH AFRICA. SO THERE ARE TWO DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT QUESTION, AND I THINK WHAT I SAID, THAT YOU QUOTED, AND YOU ACCURATELY QUOTED IT, COULD NOT BE APPLIED TO SOUTH AFRICA BECAUSE I THINK YOU'D FIND DISCRIMINATION COMING THE OTHER WAY. THE BLACK NOT WANTING TO JOIN WITH OTHER BLACKS, OR NOT WANTING TO JOIN WITH WHITES. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, GENTLEMEN."

    "IT WOULD BE WRONG TO SET A TIME LIMIT ON A SEPARATE DEVELOPMENT", HE ADDED. "YOU CANNOT PUT TIME LIMITS ON HISTORY OF ACTS OF GOD". MR. GOLDWATER CONTINUED:
