I know this topic has been beaten to death, but Barbour’s comment still stuns me:
In interviews Barbour doesn’t have much to say about growing up in the midst of the civil rights revolution. “I just don’t remember it as being that bad,” he said.
Everyone seems to be focusing on the Citizen Council and the other race hate groups of the day, but for me, but when I hear him say it wasn’t that bad, I just can’t get past wanting to scream “BECAUSE YOU’RE FUCKING WHITE, ASSHOLE.”
Sweet jeebus. The Holocaust wasn’t that bad for Hitler, either. Until the very end.
