I was homesick for a glimpse of the Pacific as much as turned off by the idea of a prison tour.
Opting to see Gidget was definitely the better choice!
My introduction to the charms of Alabama was opening my suitcase in Birmingham, and being confronted with a cockroach that could only have come from the last town we had played - Montgomery.
Plus, the state government in Montgomery offered our company a tour of the state prison as an "entertainment." My roommates and I went to see "Gidget" instead. THAT's how long ago it was.
In what way is that bill different from the old Jim Crow laws? I was touring the South off and on from 1957 to June 1960 (we also played more civilized states), and the things I saw were unbelievable. Tacky burger joints like White Castle were too "refined" to even let the descendants of slaves buy cheap take-out burgers at the counter...let alone sit down with the white customers, they had to go to the kitchen door. In other words, businesses were saying, "Your money is accepted here, but you're NOT."
Or signs that said "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone." Meaning, "NO ni****s allowed."
Sound like the KKK is alive and well in Mississippi (and Alabama.)
Is there a protest over that bill Sentient?
Will this nonsense ever cease? I can't even begin to imagine the amount of hate that fills their every-day existence. Are these people actually happy to be alive, or has their hate of others consumed them beyond despair?
In a move that will surprise no one, the Mississippi legislature passed their license to discriminate bill. And the gov signed it.
Senate Bill 2681, the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act, would allow businesses and individuals to deny services to anyone, if serving that person or organization would "substantially burden" the individual's "religious exercise." It also adds the words "In God We Trust" to the official state seal.
