Everyone already knew about these comments.
John Wayne's mistake was when he said that blacks (and blacks alone) should be educated before becoming full members of society. All people should be educated before becoming full members of society, if you ask me. From the rednecks among the whites, to the gangmembers among the blacks and Hispanics, every race has too many morons in its group and they need to be weeded out ASAP because they're killing our society.
Regardless, John Wayne's comments don't apply to today's times. If he lived today, he himself would've said that.
And I'm not a John Wayne fan either way.
