Second!

But it’s not quite time yet for the thread to begin.
Imagine for a moment in an alternate timeline the fashions and aesthetics of 1947 - 1964 stayed around even in the modern day. Combine that with equal civil and political rights for People of Color Women and the LGBT Community and Bob’s your uncle you have The Jamesian Republic.

"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

I don't know, does it actually do anything or is it the equivalent of writing a strongly worded letter of disproval?
