Before we start this blog post how about a little military story, sort of?
The year was 1962.
I am no story teller!
The summer of Birmingham Alabama 1962
An innocent navy serviceman (yours truly), from New England where racism meant Indians!
As a school student in the teens I knew nothing about the following at the time.
Birmingham Campaign of 1963
One of by shipmates invited me to his home and with no plans for my leave,
He drove to a main road, unknown to me, and hit the gas, his car bounced a young girl to the curb.
Long story short, I heaved the keys out my window and him out his door.
After I finished with him and seeing that the girl was O.K.
I started back to the base.
A number of witnesses came to me and I hitched a ride form one of them.
I reported this to the officer of the deck and joined shipmates in the mess hall games of 5 and 9 and chess.
The little girl was an African-American, along with all of the witnesses.
Such was life in Birmingham Alabama 1962.
Fifty six women accusers and one White Male!
One White Male is a president?
Fifty six women are condemned?
