  1. There was nobody killed, so it wasn’t really that bloody. On Bloody Sunday in Derry, 14 people were killed, 6 of them under 18 yrs of age.

    If you’d had your Widgery, you’d have been told that they were breaking the law and thus responsible for anything they got.

  2. Both were festivals of dirty cops having fun

    In the case of Derry you had dirty military also

  3. Blacks were really rubbished back then in the South. I’m glad things have changed in my lifetime.

  4. we were witness to the greatest change of any culture of the modern age Charles we saw how it was before and how it is after.

  5. Noel there were no bodies because Dr King was righteous. There were no righteous on either side of the Troubles both English and Irish, Catholic and Protestant were and are the embarrassment of western civilization.

    You’ll ought to feel nothing but shame and embarrassment.

    Pat, both John Hume, (greatly inspired by MLK), and (then) Father Edward Daly were both present at Bloody Sunday. I think that any objective person would rightly attach the adjective of ‘righteous’ to either.

    Now, you being an American I don’t expect you to know who they are and that’s okay because I wouldn’t expect you to to be familiar with the nuances of the Irish conflict but really, sweeping generalisations of something you’re unaware of do nothing for your credibility.

  7. But, Paul, after the Montgomery marches, all Southern Whites “were and are the embarrassment of western civilization”.
