Happy 4th of July, from Archie Bunker

Here's one of my favorite rants from All in the Family's Archie Bunker, always played impeccably by Carroll O'Connor. Mike (Rob Reiner) is vying for a professorial appointment in Minnesota, but he's afraid his opponent, a black man, will be chosen ahead of him in a case of affirmative action. Archie, really arguing against his daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers) being shipped off to another state, turns years of arguments about race back around on Mike, while still sticking to his old ways of thinking. Great stuff--and I guarantee, this is what a lot of people out there really think. Anyways, Happy July 4th, everybody!
