When I was three years old we moved from Naples, Italy to Atlanta, GA around 1957. Segregation and racism were rampant in the south of that day and legalized. I remember blacks sitting at the back of the bus, water fountains marked white only and the Woolworth's counter segregated as well.
Most white people who grew up in the south thought nothing about it. It was legal and safe for them.
I always wondered about it and thought it wasn't right that in a country that taught that all people are created equal that this inequality existed. But it did and in high places.
We've come a long way but not all the way in respecting the equality of all races.
But we are still stuck in the symbolic "Jim Crow" and legalized racism of the 1950's as it concerns the dignity of every child created in the image and likeness of God. They are human beings created equal.
Why is it that normal people and their politicians support legal abortion, the killing of children and now promoting even infanticide. How does this happen in an enlightened society?
Would CNN ever show the horrors of abortion as it concerns the child that is murdered, especially the partial birth abortion as gruesome as it is? NO!
The Governor of Virginia thought nothing about wearing black face in the 1980's and showing someone in a KKK outfit for his college annual. One has to wonder about the college administration at that time too.
Little did he know that almost 40 years later that would come back to bite him and run him out of political office.
What about all those who today support the murder of children through the various abortion procedures. What will happen to them 40 years from now when the USA is more enlightened about this horror and is repulsed that it was ever legal?
