Yesterday, Andrew Sullivan posted the video embedded below. It's just a thin slice of the America of my childhood and that of many millions of living Americans. Note, as well, this TV program was considered culturally progressive in its day because the dad was warm and affectionate with his son.
Oh, if you're of Japanese ancestry, this will be a real trip, but then again, you already knew. I must add that none of what is deeply offensive about this video changed because of social conservatism. None of it. And if you think that conservatives didn't fight tooth and nail against the positive changes in our culture since that time, you are either young or you have a convenient case of amnesia.
