Johnson, born in Galveston, Texas, was the target of racial resentment, particularly after he defeated white boxer James Jeffries in the 1910 "Fight of the Century," a bout that sparked race riots…

Would also be a great character for your Pulp gaming…

Fantastic news.
How can anyone be against it?

Did I say I was against the pardon?

Did I say you were?

I'm talking about the people who are convinced that everything the current president does is stupid and/or evil.
I'm sure they'll find a way.

And then there are the Social Injustice Warriors who will be horrified that The President is condoning miscegenation. You know who you are.

They are all out there for sure, doing just that, circling like vultures.

Foundry has two pugilists engaging in bare knuckles fisticuffs. Somewhere in the Wild West range.
One is bald and black. The other is probably Irish Mike Seeeney. Or Gentleman Jim Jeffries.

I don't need convincing. I can actually SEE. You need to come out of your coma. He IS & he IS. And ya don't need to "find" anything. It's there every time the mouth opens. And if I end up in the DH, YOU better be there with me. YOU started this. No one else had said anything about him, until you did. Again.
That said, this may be the first decent thing done in 17 months.

Thank you Mr. President for pardoning "Jack Johnson".

Feel Better?…

For better or worse, I don't believe a Presidential Pardon is revokable…
