Undeterred, Bilbo demanded a stiffer penal code for Washington, a city that at the time was almost completely free of organized or big-scale crime, and advocated taking back from the state of Virginia a thirty-square-mile strip of land that had once been a part of the District.

My opposition to racial segregation stems largely from the fact that Theodore Gilmore Bilbo, perhaps the most racist politician in American history, was my fifth cousin.
Bilbo was twice elected governor of Mississippi and three times elected to the United States Senate.

Adams uses the example of his fifth cousin to explain how many of today’s calls for separate proms, student unions, clubs, etc. for the fl members of our population are equivalent to the unfortunate demands for continued segregation half a century ago.
His cousin is Theodore Gilmore Bilbo, and he was a disgustingly racist member of the U. Senate.
