To the Editor:

To Beth Johnson:

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. I'd invite you imagine the following, very real, scenario and decide which side of history you'd like to be on.

A Bit Of Sarcasm (1964 Edition)

It is unbelievable what is happening in our society.

Is it possible that we have become so progressive that we fail to recognize differences in appearance?

For example, some claim they feel they are equal when they are clearly different than me. They call themselves African Americans.Then, of course, they want to use the bathrooms, showers, etc. of a different skin color.

Well, let's suppose I decide to go to school and announce that I am an African American and want to identify myself as such.

As an African American, no one can discriminate against me because big government says it is against the law.

The school and society will have to accommodate me as an African American. I want to be respected and affirmed by all. Of course, as an African American, I will need access to equal facilities as my Caucasian peers. However, no need to be concerned about a special bathroom, which would put an additional strain on the school's budget, because I can just relieve myself whenever I please in the same bathroom as my peers.

You don't like that ... Just get over it.

Needless to say, no one dare speak out against me, as that would be discriminatory or hate speech - probably both. Just think, I would most likely have the support of the American people and the American Civil Liberties Union. How wonderful.

Now that this idea of treating our fellow humans with respect has been put in print, you can be sure that it won't be long before, in this "progressive" society, many will jump on the bandwagon. High Ho Silver! Away.
