All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Yesterday's BJW

A couple of thoughts I'd like to share about yesterdays BJW post.

First, I'm going to guess that I know the race of the majority of my readers.  They are white.

Second, I'm going to guess your reaction to that post.  You probably chuckled and felt that it was a just outcome given the attitudes and circumstances.

Third, had the story been a real life event and had you been there in person, you would have been one of the ones clapping.  Even if you were stuck in a crowed cabin, you wouldn't have been bothered by the fact that the other guy got a free upgrade.

Why is it that white Americans are automatically considered racists?

    But she still got what she wanted, which was to not be seated next to a black man.

    Is that glass half-full, or half-empty?

  2. Depends if the milk is white or cholate.
