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.

Shortly before he was assassinated, Martin Luther King, Jr. was in Boston on a fund-raising mission, and I had the good fortune to attend a dinner which was given for him in Cambridge. This was an experience which was at once fascinating and moving: one witnessed Dr. King in action in a way one never got to see in public. He wanted to find what the Negro students at Harvard and other parts of the Boston area were thinking about various issues, and he very subtly cross-examined them for well over an hour and a half. He asked questions, and said very little himself. One of the young men present happened to make some remark against the Zionists. Dr. King snapped at him and said,

“Don’t talk like that! When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism!”

*Why do you 'need' an AR-15?

"Why did Rosa Parks 'need' to sit in the front of the bus?"

In a free country there is no requirement to show a 'need' to exercise a right!*

"I'm proud to be President of the United States."

- Jumpin' Joe Biden, today.

(after some laughter of the audience and someone quietly prodding him)

"I'm proud to be VICE-President of the United States."

I didn't ask her about quality socks. She was quite upset, however, at having to pay 21 cents for Mac sauce.

Our little chat lasted around 10 minutes. She thought it was about 1:30 AM, not 3:30, and didn't believe me when I told her. She then wanted to tell me my horoscope. Her birthday is February 18.

I'll never forget you... whoever the fuck you were....

Let me guess, a McDonald's parking lot at 3:30 AM is the place to be to find high quality socks.

I know it's not the place to be to find a high quality meal. At least not until the day shift shows up for work.
