Indeed it is. Lawrence may have had a chance to be selected for an Apollo placement if it weren't for the 104 accident.

That is sick to see this country is still racist against people like blacks and Jews of course. We have a lot of Jew bashers on this board.

I wonder how much they had to lower the standards to get this guy in, it's like that fire department where they had to throw out the test because only white people passed. The blacks claimed the test was racist because it contained basic math and english, I guess whites really are the smartest race in the world.

Okay, moronic racist a-hole, there have been plenty of African American astronauts. You need to know what you're talking about. Stupid.

An African-American Astronaut, what did he carjack the space shuttle to pull off a robbery on the moon?

There is no crack on the MOON!
