MLK day. Seems hard to believe of the prejudice going on in the 70's!
Check out the SouthEastern Conference web page, and count how many African Americans you see prominently headlined. This wasn't the case as lately as the 70's believe it or not. The first Basketball player in the SEC didn't suit up until 1971! And Alabama's great Crimson Tide did not integrate until the early 70's. We have came a long ways in some areas, but how long will it be until the deep south finally accepts racial equality? May take another few decades.
