  •  I remember (10+ / 0-)

    an old teacher telling me about playing Vegas with Louis Armstrong, and the band not being allowed to stay in the hotel attached to the casino where they were playing.  They had to room across town.

    Or touring with Charlie Parker, and getting rousted by the cops in the south for being a white man playing with a 'colored' band.  For those gigs, they billed him as "albino red" and claimed he was black - it just didn't show.

    Sometimes the only thing that changes is the details.  :(

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
