While discussing that the brain is the largest sex organ, " I don't fuck morons!" ~new single male~ (not exactly sure why, but this cracked me up!!!)

No, Sed, it never crossed my mind that you would plagiarize. With the author not being listed in the original quote, it read as though you wrote it. The paragraph was well composed, after all. My observation was that without that little bit of info to clarify, and with the date of the event occurring quite early in your life, it sounded odd coming directly from you.

Actually, I was kind of hoping that Americans would know who the quote is from. Today is, after all, MLK day. Furthermore, as someone who ALWAYS attributes the quotes to their origin, do you really think that I am one of those people who'd plagiarize? In today's day and age, I would imagine that, majority of people with an IQ of 59 or higher would know better. Maybe I should be insulted! ;)

KB, I've been gone all day but was just about to ask Sed about her post, for the same reason. When it's not attributed to someone else, people here usually presume the author is the poster.

Exactly! It wasn't clear and I could read it both ways: either you being wickedly tongue-in-cheek and saying that as a sly wink at "asianeyes" {and to see if anyone's paying attention}...OR the whole thing being a quote, which it apparently happens to be. Either way, it was good.

The account is that of Lipset, the author of the Political Man, he is quoting MLK.

What are you asking exactly?

"Professional golfers of the Caucasian race, over the age of eighteen years, residing in North or South America, and who have served at least five years in the profession (either in the capacity of a professional or in the employ of a professional as his assistant) shall be eligible for membership.” The PGA (Professional Golfers' Association) Constitution. Under legal pressure, this was removed in 1961. There was a similar "whites only" clause in the mission statement of the USGA (United States Golf Association).

This unthinkable discrimination existed in MY LIFETIME. I admire and appreciate the hard work and sacrifices by brave pioneers like Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
