People are busy living, trying to enjoy life with freedom, trying to work and make money for their families and for themselves, and move on up.
We no longer condone slaves or slave owners anymore.
Our women are equals to us now.
We're not under martial law.
We're nowhere near the state of paranoid fear that gripped us during the days of McCarthyism.
