Cool Beans- you are guilty of what you accuse Bob and I of doing- but in reverse- Where do you get this idea that women were poorly treated in the 1950s? I saw nothing to suggest this was a common thing- where is your evidence to support such a claim?
You extrapolate a few notorious cases of racial violence and make it sound like the everyday norm. I can search the news and find incidences of blacks attacking whites now today- but that doesn't mean it's a common thing.
Yes there was segregation in the 1950s but as Bob points our- black people were on the a whole lot better off than they are today- and they can't blame whites for their drugs, violence, illegitimate kids, broken homes, or school drop outs of today- that's all been of their own makings.
Maybe you should see some old movies like "Driving Miss Daisy" for a more accurate picture of the way things really were in the 1950s South.
