Back when I was a kid, it was typical to see movies about World War II on TV. Lauding the brave fighting kids that America sent to stop the Nazis and the Japanese. A few of those movies included submarines, depth charges, and torpedoes.
No, I did not mistake the beginning of the Gettysburg Address. Instead, I am referring to the birth of the late Reverend Martin Luther King. Who was born into an America that was segregated. And, helped change the policy and practice of that nation.
So, there’s a new book out. Written from the Conservative point of view. “Coming Apart” by Charles Murray. He asserts that we are dividing into a two-caste society. (I don’t disagree- it’s between the rich and not-rich, the educated and the dropout, and still between the White and the non-White. This latter is critical, since it seems that Murray chose his data for the White class.)
