It was a lot worse all along - prolly ten times worse
Shhh… Roose still thinks those were the good ol’ days to bring Murrica back to
They were the good old days - I would say the cutoff date in age to truly know what it was like would be about 66 years old
Any younger then that and you could never understand the gigantic difference
So lynchings or overt racism never happened 67 years ago? okay
Link to where the fuck I sed that -
times was a 1000 times better -
If yer under 66 you could never comprehend it
So you’re being unclear. OK. What happened in 1950 that this is so?
1950 got nothing to do with it
It is what year your pre-teen and teen years were
The 1800’s were the best… well, except for having to clean the horse shit off your boots and the consumption from all the gas lamps. Still, you could sit in a saloon all day getting drunk on rot gut and fukking the hoors upstairs… not to mention walking around with a gun and shooting anyone who offended you.
Well and having to pump out a dozen or so kids to make sure you had a 3 or 4 survive to grow old enough to work the farm.

The New York Times reported:
When it comes to the most lethal form of force — police shootings — the study finds no racial bias.
It is the most surprising result of my career,” said Fryer, the author of the study.
The result contradicts the mental image of police shootings that many Americans hold in the wake of the killings (some captured on video) of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.; Laquan McDonald in Chicago; Tamir Rice in Cleveland; Walter Scott in South Carolina; Samuel DuBose in Cincinnati; Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La.; and Philando Castile in Minnesota.
Maybe that’s true, but one thing I can tell you (based in part from my time in the car business) perception is reality.
The story did not say that cops treated Blacks the same in other areas, maybe that helps to create the perception that you are talking about.
Hey. I am spending too much time on the internets today, I got yard work to do. Have a good one.
