    Thanks for the perspective Chris. I didn't appreciate the other parallel coming from the segregation of 'coloreds' back in the sixties.

    There was something on BBC Radio 4 this morning about one of the Scottish ports receiving black American sailors back in the early 1960's. When on leave, they asked a surprised Scottish bar tender, 'where can we sit?' IOW's how is the bar segregated?

    Amazing to think this was only 50 years ago.

    Hi Daz

    Yes it is startling to think that segregation was only fifty years ago. When I arrived in Baltimore as a seven-year-old in January 1955, the city was segregated and they had such things as white-only or colored-only water fountains and swimming pools. Also as with the Rosa Parks protest in Alabama in December 1955 against the need for colored people to sit at the back of the bus, that was the case here in Maryland, that the non-whites had to sit at the back.

    "Mississippi Burning"(Gene Hackman) depicted what went on in the mid 50's.

    Yup, you cannot beat Hollywood when it comes to history. If they were coloured, then what the heck were we; colourless?
