MLK gunned down in '68, and now, 40 years later, 'run over' by the 'Straight Talk Express' 04 April, 2008 - Memphis, TN
Today's 'straight talk':
McCain was 32 when King died. He was 47 when he voted against the holiday. He claims he didn't know about MLK that entire time? That it was merely "an issue"? The reporter is right, this wasn't an issue, it was basic knowledge of American history.
Wiki McSame material:
The family settled in Northern Virginia, and McCain attended the educationally stronger (all male then) St. Stephen's School in Alexandria, Virginia from 1946 to 1949.
ALL MALE and, exclusive of blacks OBVIOUSLY in '46-'49, in Northern Virginaia, YA THINK he might have been laying down some prejudices...?!
St Stephens (& Agnes now) regularly enrolls the children of the wealthy and politically powerful as well as some of the brightest youth of metropolitan Washington.
Most of the children there were sons of wealthy Southerners, from whom McCain got a glimpse of life outside the Navy culture.
Hmmm Ya Think he just might have gotten a wee bit predjudiced view from his wealthy WHITE southern classmates?
McCain's grades were good in the subjects he enjoyed, such as literature and history. Gamboa said McCain would rather read a history book than do his math homework. He did just enough to pass the classes he didn't find stimulating.
Apparently nothing about 'black' history...
USNWR 'rememberances from May 73 article:
It's vital to keep your mind occupied,... I had read a lot of history. I spent days on end going back over those history books in my mind, figuring out where this country or that country went wrong, what the U. S. should do in the area of foreign affairs. I thought a lot about the meaning of life.
Again, McSame wasn't apparently reviewing any 'black' history during his POW incarceration.
LIAR. Simple, racist, liar.
