Notice everyone was white in those pics ?

That's all I'm saying.

As Angela Merkel said "Multicultrualism has utterly failed"

Things were much much better in those days after WW2.
There was prosperity, and growth and very low influence from other cultures or beliefs.
Oh and Rap music culture wasnt discovered yet.

Cool pics, seems it was always a big city, even the mall was swanky in the 60's.


btw I noticed most where white too but at the gas station there was a black guy so not everyone.

There was prosperity because they didn't have a corrupt financial/political system sucking the growth into pocket of few and enslaving the common folk. Appreciate the straighforwardness but get your facts straight before jumping to racist conclusion

good point. but multiculturalism Has Failed. no multiculturalism, tolerance, political correctness in China, africa, saudi arabia, etc. the only place it is pushed is in western countries. some claim that 'anti racism'' is really code for 'anti white' and is in fact racism .... but i digress. one could search Enoch Powell, Rivers of Blood .

Notice, the nicely dressed men,, in jacket and suspenders...
even watching the air show..

Robb 06-24-2013 07:24 PM

Only prisoners and farmers wore jeans back then.
No one had tattoos and men didnt wear earrings.
