    He's more tactless than racist, I feel, with such lack of tact revealing itself in off-colour remarks which can be/are construed as racist, and at face value some are undoubtly racist. But hes not racist like the Met´╗┐. I disagree. He is so unracist that he doesn't recognise the things he says as racist because he doesn't recognise difference in race. Most of the things he says relates to culture rather than race, or factual racial differentials such as Chinese people having slitty eyes...which they do. People just like to be offended these days. Including me. Can't get enough of being the victim.

    Not quite an astronaut, but Allan McDonald, who directed the booster rocket project at NASA contractor Morton Thiokol and who was at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the ill-fated launch of the Challenger in 1986, has died. He was 83. https://www.npr.org/2021/03/07/974534021/remembering-allan-mcdonald-he-refused-to-approve-challenger-launch-exposed-cover?utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20210307

    A fair point about the equal ops above and...

    Actually there is a "Living people" category on bottom of the article, but it is true that fucking Wikipedia does not decide if one is dead or alive. So all these edits are meaningless.

    Oprah should ask him "does it bother you that your grandfather may die when you're over here?" But anyway I'm hoping everyone shuts up about it once the interviews aired
