@WinterShorts It kind of is. I mean, in 2001, there was only the very beginnings of an awareness that this was not appropriate. It isn't sweeping it under the rug. It is suggesting that we accept that our leaders are human, living in specific points in time, and mores change.
@WinterShorts The very real and present danger is from the CPC. I think you know this. And we are all fallible. It was an inappropriate thing to do, but less inappropriate at the time and the setting than it is now. 1/...
@WinterShorts I feel it should not be as big a deal as the CPC are going to try to make it. 2/...
@WinterShorts I have a photo of my parents from the 1960s, dressed up at a costume party. They are dressed as Asians, with kimonos and so on. Makeup to make them look Chinese. They were not racist. Not at all. No one even thought about cultural appropriation back then. Just like no one... 3/4
@WinterShorts ... thought about putting on seatbelts. As society and social ideas evolve, we need to keep up. They would never have done that if they had any inkling it could offend anyone. But you don't know what you don't know. That's all I'm saying. 4/4
