While Price was a good actor, and very bright, as I recall he was also strongly prejudiced and right wing almost to the point of finding WWII Germany’s views reasonable
If you can believe his daughter’s biographical account of him, he later refuted his earlier beliefs. He was raised in a conservative family that was anti-Catholic and anti-Jewish and bought into Hitler’s diatribes, even attending the famous (infamous) Nuremburg rally of 1934. But after meeting with some German emigres whom he didn’t believe at first he was finally convinced it was crap. His daughter mentioned that he harbored no prejudice against African-Americans though and admired Paul Robeson.
Donald Trump is prejudiced against African-Americans? Really? Why Arsenio Hall and not the President? Has he checked Arsenio’s birth certificate? BTW I was quoting his daughter; believe her or not. If you have any evidence to the contrary trot it out!
I have no evidence in either direction, however, I was pointing out that the statement that one is not prejudiced since (or and) one has a positive opinion of one specific member of the group is hardly a proof of the claim.
Occam, I threw the Robeson quote in as an illustration. She didn’t mean it to be used as a support to her claim. She goes on to mention his stay in England and his exposure to the war. Robeson sang there and she mentions Price went to see him. As a staunch Republican his family taught him that the party (radical abolitionist wing) freed the slaves and he harbored no racial prejudice towards them. His family were, once again anti Jewish And anti Catholic. Weird thought pattern but that’s how his daughter spun it.
