He was a product of his generation....it's definitely not right, but then we didn't have pc back then either.

1971 wasn't exactly the stone age.

And despite the claims of the self-professed white supremacist who never served in the military there were certainly many blacks educated enough to the point of responsibility for the government to send them off to SE Asia.

Pretty soon airports will have to just be known by number.

Here's my thought on it. No man is perfect. Wayne had traits that were positive, and others that were negative.

Put it to a vote of Orange County residents.

I think it's pointless to do this after people are dead. It won't teach them anything.

The man was an actor. I don't know why we have to consider him a leader, or a hero.

He acted in movies.

Why do we assign him hero status?

And although his son says this was just one interview, it only takes one conversation where a person can showcase all their deeply held beliefs.

He was what he was. A bigoted actor, who wasn't really all that good an actor - he only played one role. A hard, cold, cowboy.
