Sure, the late 40's and 50's were "great"...
If you were a white male.
Oh, here we go...SJW regulators RIDE!!!
SJW, another catch acronym that is really a good thing, but made to look bad. Like conservatives are calling liberal Democrats 'Leftists' now, which is completely inaccurate.
Call Mystik a SSS, I dare you.

It might sound "racist", but statistics show that the African America community had more business owners per capita, better education rates, less felons, less poverty and higher paternal fidelity rates in the 40's and 50's then it does today.
So... who was better off?
Are you referring to better education through segregated schools? White only restaurants, drinking fountains and bathrooms? Poll taxes and grandfather clauses to restrict black voting rights? No interracial dating or marriages? KKK lynchings? I'd love to see these wonderful statistics of which you speak.

So why do you think Mother England didn't invade on her own and just mop things right up?
Really? I think we made sure your asses were safe from the Russians, before we got real cozy with the Japanese. Wasn't America great back then? Always putting her allies before her own interest
The Battle of Kohima, which raged for weeks around the remote Indian hill station of Kohima, was where the tide finally turned in the war against the Japanese.Until Kohima, it has been said, the Japanese never suffered a defeat. After Kohima, they never had a victory
Yep. Two thousand Yanks paid the ultimate price opening up the invasion. And what are you doing? Belittling their sacrifice. Makes you feel damn proud now, doesn't it
America helped Europe defeat the Nazi threat to their existence. Without our help Europe would have lost the and their history would have been much different.
Hitler was a poor military mind who was overambitious and stretch his army too thin fighting on multiple fronts they couldn't handle
