It was an entirely different world 35 years ago.
And an entirely different world 35 years before that.

I don't know much about this Northram fella. I thought it was a high school yearbook photo. If he pulled shenanigans like that last Halloween then surely he could be said to be insensitive to the different sorts of people we share this planet with. 35 years ago...not so much.

Exactly.

I agree. This is why I keep brining-up Steve King - he said his garbage less than two weeks ago.

I posted at length in your new thread, Rick, but just to make a point here: Northam was 24, I think, in 1984. Old enough to know better. But his record since then? Not so bad. VMI is a snake pit. I don't know about "Eastern Virginia" but... Virginia in 1984 is a lot different than Virginia today. I was there, then (1985-6). There was a HUGE amount of racism then, hidden under a genteel veneer. I remember returning my purchases to the clerk who hadn't served my friend (who was black) who was right behind me in line - and this was in a military facility. I couldn't believe it in 1985. I don't know what it is like now.
