It's just crazy to think about how recent it really was. I'm white, grew up in dayton. i have a black girlfriend who grew up Zimbabwe but moved to Akron for college and we both live in nashville now. It's crazy the amount of people who proudly have confederate flag license plates or flags on their truck (and yes, it's always a truck). It makes me uncomfortable seeing that and I'm sure it's even worse for her. I don't think If I grew up in missipppi that my relationship with her would even be kosher with my family or with people in the community.
During the documentary, they had the new student class president for u of Mississippi on to talk about her experiences, her being the first black student class president. She said that she got called racial names after being elected. Why do people stoop to that level? I believe it has much to do with how people are brought up by their parents an family. If they are racist, then so are the kids usually.
It's not just parents, it takes a community to raise a child.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I think they should change it to.
Yes we lost. Yes we lost.
The 1970 USC-Alabama football game brought an end to segregation in college football..Prior to 1970 Bama did not admit African-American to schools (schools below the Mason Dixon were nearly all segregated)..
"Turning of the Tide: How One Game Changed the The book is about the 1970 USC-Alabama football game that brought an end to segregation in college football. The game, in which Cunningham,,played, marked an important moment not only in USC history, but in the realm of American sports and civil rights.
Cunningham, a 1972 All-American fullback at USC, had a 135-yard, 2-touchdown outing in the Trojans' 42-21 victory over Alabama in Birmingham in 1970. His performance as an African-American athlete is said to have helped convince Alabama head coach Bear Bryant to integrate Southern football. Known as "Sam Bam" because of his famous goal line dives for touchdowns, he ran for 1,579 yards in his USC career, was MVP of the 1973 Rose Bowl and played nine seasons with the NFL's New England Patriots. He currently owns a landscaping business in Southern California.
Buckeye fans should remember "Sam Bam" Cunningham from the 1973 Rose Bowl..He scored 4TDS in USC's 42-17 victory

I am looking forward to watching this myself.. I find it interesting that James Meredith is a lifelong conservative republican - and you don't hear that being talked about much... not to turn this discussion political.. but I am always a bit intrigued when these icons don't quite hold the political beliefs one assumes they would have.. for instance Jackie Robinson was also a republican and campaigned for Nixon on numerous occasions... what great role models for our kids.... (not the republican part.. but the independant thinking part - it really speaks to me about what is great about this country)
one thing I wanted to point out.. did anyone notice the combat uniforms used by South Carolina vs. LSU.. the moment I saw them I was more than a bit surprised that no one pointed out how they really looked like confederate uniforms.. what do you think?

Man, Nashville is a cool city. The traffic is so much better than Columbus. Don't blame herbie for moving there at all.
"according to a source familiar with the goings on behind the doors of the WHAC,there is absolutely no panic.Actually, quite the contrary."
