Pulling the Ladder Up

: July 26, 2020

Boomers will defend the right of Blacks and Whites to drink at the same water fountain, but won’t defend the rights of either to have enough money to afford the trip to the water fountain.

Boomers are willing to feign tolerance and open-mindedness when the issue is an issue socially but not economically. Yes they want blacks and whites to eat at the same restaurants.
