Don't even get me started on anti-Semitism. Well, actually I
should get started on it. That would be a thread the length of
the Mississippi.

I've known Rense and his fam for years and years. In all that
time he's never, never, said a disparaging remark against any
race. I don't always agree on everything he says or presents but
he's got a method to his madness.

As for anti-Semitism in ufology I've yet to see all the blogs
and websites and make an evaluation. In the field however that's
a different story. It never ceases to amaze me how when out
doing an investigation how a group of people who've claimed to
have met aliens from another world will sit there in the same
breath and spout racial hatred against someone else. Especially
in my own neighborhood and stomping grounds of New York and
especially upstate New York.

I could go on for days and days about what I've seen, heard, and
been through.

We must take into account the early UFO history did indeed have
to deal with racism. How much did that affect dissemination of
the truth to the public? I've been_told_ some stories regarding
some events including Roswell. I've seen first-hand
discrimination at the sites of several UFO investigations.
Government files are so blacked out and I was told on more than
one occasion that it was because in today's world those
statements would be inflammatory although not intentional by
noted government officials.

Considering the Nixon tapes where he used racial epithets quite
regularly it wouldn't surprise me. I'm sure a Nixon UFO report
would make the fictional Archie Bunker look like a priest.

It's an issue we need to investigate. There's something there.
