“These People want too many rights”

Robert Kruk,

When I was a boy (13 or so) my father & I were watching the news, and an African-American demonstration was shown. After listening to a speaker, my father exclaimed the above sentence. Even at the time, I thought that it was one of the stupidest things I’d ever heard anyone say. Years later. now in my seventies, I realize that my father was actually one of the worst kind of rascists: one who doesn’t know he is a rascist and, if he were alive, would vehemently deny that he was.
