Interesting statement in this article: "Politically, the Rat Packers were left-leaning. They were firmly committed to racial equality"

BS! Back then Republicans were leading the charge in the Civil Rights movement...Jackie Robinson was a Republican then.

Exactly! That's why I found it interesting. Obviously a left wing publication which lacks honesty.

The media has been equating a desire for equality with leftist politics for decades. Its bullsh*t, but since when have they cared about the truth. I'd like to see something more than the Rat Pack's party relationship with Kennedy to back up this assertion.

BTW Sinatra was supposedly staunchly anti-communist - I recall him being close to the Reagans in the eighties.
