I think it's not so much that he's old as that he romanticizes the past.

That's clear from the episodes he's written (he's in love with WWII-era) and I suspect he's the kind of man who secretly longs for the good ol' days when the white man didn't have to explain himself.

I'd say "when the white man was in charge," but that's still clearly the case, no matter what Men's Rights Activists think.
