Subject: For the Old Timers: What Did You Think of Tommie Smith and John Carlos in 1968
I watched the ESPN special on them and thought it was great. I felt a tremendous amount of pride for them and felt they represent what America in its ideal is about.
It seems so simple. They put themselves at tremendous risk to stand up for the universal right that all races should be treated equally. They should be in the Olympic Hall of Fame. Talk about courage and bravery.
But I knew I was seeing this from the rearview mirror 40 years later. I wonder what some of you who were around at that tim, thought of their actions, and whether your views have changed over time.
We've already received one email from a guy who was really upset we praised them on our homepage.
