Missed It By That Much

Just caught a minute of a kids' show on Amelia Earhardt on PBS where the young narrator noted that Eleanor Roosevelt once took a plane ride with Amelia and was so excited she wanted to get a pilot's license. But FDR vetoed it, claiming he couldn't afford to lose the First Lady in a plane crash. To think America could have been that close to shedding itself of one of its greatest embarrassments - now, we can only dream of what might have been.

Doubtful.

I do notice, however, that many liberals like to use "negros" as a reason for implementing all sorts of bad policies that will give them jobs and power for decades to come.

daveg - you got my back - thx dude.
As far as whether Eleanor did or did not 'like negros', if she did I'm sure it was from a safe distance or in a safe zone (like here servants). But however much she did like blacks, I'm sure that paled in comparison to how much she must have liked Amelia Earhardt.

Did the show specifically say that Eleanor flew with Amelia or that she "gave her a ride"?
With what we now know about both, I'm thinking the latter is more plausible.
