    My mama didn't say that exactly. Me dino was a little way past half grown when she told me never to discuss politics.
    Maybe growing up in the segregated South had something to do with it (though I brought up what mama said to stop my last Thanksgiving dinner with relatives from being spoiled).
    A couple or so years after mama said that I saw one white kid bust another white kid in the mouth for the blasphemy of saying he didn't like George Wallace.
    Recall my take on witnessing that was "So much for free speech." Segregated schools actually taught what is in The Constitution back then.
    Me dino even had to memorize "The Gettysburg Address" and recite it before a class.
    Sixth grade? Seventh grade? Somewhere along there.

    Worse yet...Don't let them know that you know. In this new dark age the easiest way to get a big target on your back is to demonstrate knowledge and clarity. My son, after failing to heed my advice, is learning that in his high school.

    No, mom was usually passed out from drinking. Dad however, taught me to stand up for what is right, and not worry about acceptance. Uncle told me "be sure your right, then go ahead." Being silent long enough to assess the situation is good, but remaining silent, contributes to bad results by dummies.
