I LOVE your tags on that post about cap and segregation!!!
Thank you! I just think to say that Steve would be more surprised by the end of segregation and seeing integration on a wide scale, than he would be by the fact that people were literally told they couldn’t drink from a certain water fountain because of a specific difference, is to disregard key aspects of Steve’s character. Also another thing, I don’t know if it was the same in the US, but it definitely was in the UK, but those signs used to say “No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish” - which, if it also happened in the US, he’s the son of two Irish immigrants, he’d have experienced that segregation firsthand. So yeah. I just don’t think Steve would have struggled to adapt to or accept this aspect of 21st century living.
