Too bad we couldn't have gone sensible about race mixing far earlier in our national history. It's a sad comment on so many that Thurmond had to keep Essie Mae's existence a secret; and that the media of the time would've seen her existence as merely an excuse to pursue the politics of personal destruction. However, I respect the late Senator's decision to support his illegitimate daughter and see to it she was comfortable and educated. Too many others either pray that their trysts will get an abortion or loftily pretend they'd "never do such a thing".
