Well, since I can't figure out how to delete it.... In another thread, someone speculated on any inroads made into the African American community (DC is something like 80% black, mostly well-off, this fact fabulously underreported). In the 1970's, Richards, then Franks, and even Mervine encouraged the body routers to avoid "the DB's" [that was the code, though Franks, Richards, Wisner, and most of the high-ups, as well as the public and Div 2 reges would say "the nigs"]. Truly disgusting.
Worse, two of the best body routers DC ever had were AA, and some of this talk was done right in front of them. One took it, and one didn't. And then there was Lynn Fountain, who repeatedly kept me out of session with her perfectly hemispherical breasts and astoundingly fine legs. Good auditor, and a kind, lovely person. Lynn, if you read this.... <sigh!> Still have a sticky crush on you!
