  •  Was racial segregation mandated by congress? (0+ / 0-)

    I wasn't aware there was any law in place that needed to be repealed to end racial segregation. It was military policy but not law. And it still took them several years after the order to implement the changes fully.

    •  Nope - by society. (0+ / 0-)

      And that brings a sort of inertia that takes a lot to get past.  But once the ball was rolling there was no way to stop it.

      Currently with DADT, the GOP is trying to keep the ball from rolling at all, and denying any momentum at all.  So far, the results are difficult to see.

      My life is an open book, and I want a rewrite!
