Default John Young: Racist? Racist Sympathizer?

From Jeff Findley:


Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. What evidence do
you have to support this extraordinary claim?

As Madge used to say... "You're soaking in it."
In this case, John Young is soaking in blatant racism. The evidence was all
over the John Young tributes. Like right here, in the NASA.gov death
announcement:

I'm sorry, but any racism on that page is a little too subtle for me.

Unless your charge is that John Young agreed to join the astronaut corp
before the astronaut corps included anyone of non-European ancestry.

(That didn't happen until Gemini, right? And didn't happen again until
the shuttle era.)


John Young's pro-slavery message is right there in the very first photo at the
top of the page. Here it is with all hint of subtlety removed:

"This image is a photoshopped manipulation..."

In other words, it's a LIE.
