Re: Is Star Trek Interracially revolutionary?
Growing up in the 1960s, I didn't know any black people until I went to college, there were none in my elemetary or high schools. Prior to that, my only direct contact was with one who was a porter on a train (before Amtrak). But I do remember watching news footage of protestors during civil rights marches being attacked with fire hoses and by police, and wondering what these people had done to deserve such treatment.
