    Watching fire hoses and tear gas flooding people who were seeking their rights as Americans,watching women fighting for their rights, watching cops beating up homosexual simply because they were homosexual and watching backward superstitious people burn books and music recordings because those backward people were fearful of cultural changes.

    No. That was never cool.

    If you believe America stands for freedom, it’s anything but cool.

    Well said. There were some dark times for some. I prefer progress.

    You'd think so, wouldn't you. It was interesting to watch the demographics of our neighborhood and my schools change through the sixties and seventies.

    I posted this thread thinking it would be a nice, feel good thread for the holidays. In hindsight the 1950's may not have been awesome for everybody.
