40. Your references to Hefner being progressive when it comes to race are spot on....
When he had the show "Playboy' Penthouse" in 1959, and then Playboy After Dark in the late 60's, he had on African American comics and musicians, some that were not getting airplay ANYWHERE else on the networks. He had on the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Dick Gregory, Moms Mabley, and many others. Hefner has long been an advocate for womens rights and comes down firmly on the pro-choice side of things regarding abortion.

Regardless of how you feel about the magazine, the man, his relationships or this current show, Hugh Hefner's progressive and liberal credentials are most certainly not questionable.
