monorail_pilot comments on "All talk, no action" John Lewis was arrested at least 45 times in the fight for Civil Rights. Here are his mugshots.: "We cannot, and must not, as a society, return to a time where it is generally acceptable to treat a person differently due to the color of their skin. We have, in this election, let this horrible vestige of our past crawl out from the shadowy corner of our society. We now have shown this disgraceful segment of the society, that they are free to tear down and marginalize the leaders who rightly put that segment into the shadows, and by proxy, tear down the gains those people had won. And we did it by legitimizing all sorts of disgusting thoughts and ideas that were long cast off and scorned in the public eye by euphemising them as locker room talk and other silly ideas that basically said those of you with horrible and disgusting ideas can now spread them. Don't worry if you get called out on it, just claim you only act that way in private situations, so it's totally ok."
