Homer has visited the old port and the old market in Charleston, SC, where 40% of the colonial slave trade passed through. He is fully aware of America’s racial past, an he is in full agreement with William Faulkner’s observation that, “the past isn’t dead. It isn’t even past.”
That’s why he views the NFL Combine, now underway in Indianapolis, with a mix of fascination and unease.
