Odd bump

 

Nowhere else to put it. I mean, where else, the 49ers post?

 

There's a twitter feed from today that brought up the headlines/stories related to Smith/Carlos when it happened. They're...pretty much what you'd expect, and strikingly familiar to now. Unfortunately Twitter is blocked at work.

The parallels to this and to Kap have been made time and time again, but it's pretty crazy how people that are anti-Kap now swear that they would have supported Smith/Carlos back then.

Seems like if you were going to move it, the Olympics section might have made more sense, but whatever.

Of course. There are lots of past examples like this. Specically relating to the instances that we have polling data on, it is pretty clear that a lot of people aren't great at thinking how they would have thought about past social issues if they were of that time. To be fair, that is a very difficult thing to do and you can never know for sure unless you were of the time.
