Wisconsin native John Doar passed away yesterday.
Doar personified why the civil rights division of the U.S. Department of Justice became for many Americans the fulfillment of the promise of equality.
Today, the likes of John Doar are the political enemies of the White Party, what used to be the Republican Party.
Nice work by Roy Reed in the Times this morning.
Betting when John Doar did his work for the DoJ in the 1960s, he did not imagine the hostility of the Republican Party of 2014 to the fundamental civil rights of all Americans.
Likely, Doar would have been appalled by the statements of the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts that racism is now over in America.
