Hubbard's observation reminded me of my 1972 job interview...
You are advancing the very argument that faced them, every day. Until Bible thumping Christian Methodists and Quakers took up the cause, it did not enter anyone's head how unfair it all was except, perhaps, for some slaves. American blacks kept black slaves, but you cannot say that, either. Many of us look in the mirror, every day, thorough hypocrites, and muddle through. We have Arnold 'I'll be back', the beloved Kennedy that let his paramour drown, and many another to be cited. One must assume, from the consternation Dr. Roy shows, that he never finds himself in any hypocritical actions, doing wrong but loving the gain. My assumption is that there is no hypocrisy in Dr. Roy's Life, when he looks in the mirror.
Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has a book, titled "Letters to the Editor: Confessions of a Frustrated Conservative." Among its statements for which Hubbard has been criticized and disavowed by the Republican Party is, "The institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth."
