Jackie is an american hero. Who has done more for black americans? For all americans? Who was the guy that decided that WWII forces should not be segregated? Maybe that guy, but Jackie should have a holiday name in his honor.

Lincoln, MLK, Truman... heady company indeed! WW2 forces were generally segregated, except for Captain America's Howling Commandos!

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt (1918)
