2. Hard to believe only 66 years ago this was America.

It's still the same but until recently it tended to be hidden. Country founded in gods image my ass.

4. I was 2 so I know it from history...

I remember in honor of her ?50th anniversary many public transit buses had a front seat empty with an attached sign saying "This Seat Reserved for Rosa Parks".

It was like History coming alive, I could feel it.

"How would you like someone to put you in your place?"
