Just a thought about what follows "civil rights reform"



Think about it...what were the golden age of the great country of America

the 1950's of course

What were this era ended by? "Social reform."

I'm not implying anything, just an observation...where are we headed now?

The same can be said for the 1920's the "other" golden age

This is what happens when you loose focus on actual issues and start making political decisions on social issues, everything else suffer!

Yup, it sure was good to be a straight white man back in the 50's. Women knew their place, Blacks knew their place, Gays knew their place, and it was always at the feet of white man. Screw all that noise about being created equal.

re: Just a thought about what follows "civil rights reform"


I can give first hand info since I grew up in the 50s.

Race: Blacks were indeed considered lower class. Has that changed (think urban America)?
Blacks got married, had children, worked for a living, didn't do drugs, didn't have welfare. Is that bad?

Health Care: It was a great leap forward. Got the polio vaccine and new antibiotics. When I was a kid they had a yellow sign on my neighbors door. Quarantine for Tuberculosis.

Children: We played outdoors with no supervision. Even at age 5. No TV, no video games. Neighbors allowed us to play army and cowboys in their yard. We never hurt any of their property.

Lawyers: They were for writing wills.

Sex: If girls had sex and got pregnant they went away to visit Aunt Anna in another town. Baby got adopted and girl came back to school.

Also, like emmit till.

I guarantee you the black community would be in worse position without civil rights.

Civil right was a pretty big issue for a very large portion of this country. I don't think black people asking for equal rights is losing focus on the real issues.

Also, remember this gay marriage issue being worked through the Supreme Court, and it is anti-civil rights activists who brought the case there. IT isn't like congress is doing nothing but demanding gay marriage. Even when they focus on the issues they get nothing done.

Gun control. Liberal progressives know that the one thing that prevents the state from taking complete control of the lives of citizens is guns in the hands of the shee... I mean citizens.

Wow and I didn't think your first sentences could be more racist, until I read this:

What is the ultimate goal of civil rights reform anyways? Can liberals please paint me the ideal scenario for what all these hand outs plan to accomplish? I don't believe you can paint a positive one.
