    Default Things aren't always as they seem

    Trigger warning - may upset racists and anti-religionists.



    ...today I discovered the truth: that white man in the photo is, perhaps, the third hero of that night in 1968. His name was Peter Norman, ....

    Bit upset that you included anti-religionists along with racists. Almost like you are suggesting they are the same. I'm sure you are not and it was just a bit lazy.

    Thanks interesting. Strange you had to introduce a truly revolutionary moment by 3 brave men with an implied insult, it seems you don't understand why they did it, proper human love.

    Thanks for that. I too always assumed he was 'just some guy' who happened to be in the photo.

    That's the identity politics the left thrive off of for you. However a great read.

    I had read this story a few years ago and it was indeed very interesting, and what a decent chap treated very badly.

    Can't understand why you think those of us who are not religious would be triggered though. What has religion got to do with this?
