Yeah, I was just reading about him. Speaking of radio personalilites, I lived in Wisconsin for a while and I listened to Rush Limbaugh almost everyday. I thought he was hilarious. That was before he learned that he could make a mint pushing peoples buttons. Yep, the country is definitely changing and not all for the better but then they said that the computer would never be a household item so I won't write it off just yet.

Well, take a nap, watch the thread take a curve but bend back. (Sigh of relief) Mouse, your explanation of "BlackFace" is a but skewed (I have read what your saying Bud of a pratice by some slave owners, but that was not referenced to by the article or meaning of the term. Up until the end of WW2 Blackface was an entertainment "art" that often depicted Black people (Portrayed by Whites) as not only 2nd class citizens but as people who were not on the same level of being able to be educated. Alot of ill rationalizations and false impressions came of the art, and even though it did showcase some great cultural styles and talents, it was a grand parody of what most whites mistakenly perceived plantation life to be.

Few here grew up during the height of the Civil Rights Movement and the Riots that flamed over it. (I was 9 in 1963) when my Dad got stationed at Andrews AFB near DC. But until that time (Not 100 years ago) Blacks were discriminated against wholesale across the board still in many areas of our country. For me it was a particularly troubling time with all the talk of A-Bombs, Kennedy just being assassinated, and now in '64 watching whole cities turned upside down and burning. And trying to figure out why all this was going on, for me, an elementary school student, living in an area where the race mixture was about even in a lower middle class neighborhood outside DC. Even for us kids the incidents hit home as we were pulled back and forth by it and lost friends and fellow teamates because of the tensions of it all.

40+ years later it is good to see those days are over in a dark chapter in our history is over, people can now discuss things civilly, and perhaps we really can close this chapter for good. That will take both sides of the issue to continue to gain respect for the other as we hopefully to ever move forward towards total equality in racial thinking across the board, not just white/black. I have seen the thread go a full circle and people voice many facets of it. I think it best to close it now and let'* keep moving forward as a Club/Forum. Great discussion and civil temperament through a difficult subject situation. V
