    You're just emphasizing the White privilege he's got: quit drinking, find Jesus (some limited brand of it), and now Black people were happy and "godly" before the Civil Rights Movement. If you're Black it doesn't happen like that for you.

    Of course, he knows it wasn't like that for Black people then - no matter how drunk or stoned he was. He's just denying it because that's the Conservative ideology: do or say anything, and blame it on anyone else, to protect your White privilege.

    Like when you kicked off this subthread by attacking the people condemning Robertson for lying about how Black people had it then. And then making excuses for his selective "memory".

    Sure, he's got his reasons for being a bad person. Practically every bad person does. That's no excuse for doing your part to keep up your White privilege that's at the expense of denying what it's built on.

    But since you're no progressive, that's not how you see it. It's all really just haters hating on the poor victim Robertson, with his millions in hunting equipment sales, his TV show, the Republicans he endorses for Louisiana offices, and fellow White people who aren't free to lie about Black oppression without losing respect for it.
