No wonder the kids look right over the Boomer’s heads with longing to the generations before them. By the way, bulletin to the Boomers: it was not you guys who passed the Civil Rights Act. It was the WWII generation. Useful rule of thumb: Constructive Civil Rights work: think Martin Luther King Jr. Boomer era civil rights work: think Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Oh, and don’t forget to call them “Reverend”.
Perhaps no generation in the history of the world has thought more highly of itself with less grounds than my own.
