    A certain local talk show host, in that market, has told those of us who are family or long-term friends that this photo started circulating a year or two ago. He had no way to authenticate it, and chose to ignore it. If he knew, so did a lot of others.

    In my case............................there were no longer professors to rail against. At that point, what was the point?

    You might be thinking of Kappa Alpha's annual Old South days, where the frat boys dresses in confederate uniforms (officers, of course) and there dates dresses in hoop skirts out of Gone With the Wind. To complete the atmosphere, they always hired black servers.

That wouldn't do. Had to be "yes" or "no." No explanations. So, I said "yes," all the time wondering if this idiot had ever heard of the American Revolution. This was Viet Nam era - demonstrations, etc. There was no tolerance for a snippy answer. Later, I realized that that answer would be in my FBI file forever. Probably even until now...
    Hypothetical question......what would you do if one of our forum members posted some comments about hoping the USA burns and declaring himself an enemy of the US.

    Would it depend on the context of the thread discussion?

    Do you go full stop regardless of anything else, and take some sort of action?

    Report this to LE?

    Yeah, Old South was going on long before the 1980's, at universities throughout the country, especially in the South.

    Something called "Old South" just seems implicitly racist without knowing any context whatsoever. lol
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    And this part is nonsensical and maybe intended to be, as best you can, insulting...
