Would you consider the linked video about Rosa Parks to be accurate?
Yes, but I'm not sure if she sang that soulfully while boycotting society ;)
The last text over the video near the end seems optimistic, "went on to..." implies with some deliberate speed. It took a long time if you ask me. And with the "white rights" nonsense you still hear now and then, I don't think it has ended yet.
True for both parts of that.
Basically, yes, including the detail of the movable sign. The bus driver asked her (& others, I think) to move; she wouldn't; she was arrested; there was a boycott. The only thing I see that may not be completely accurate is the statement that it was
the first action against segregation. It wasn't, but I think it was the first *effective* one.
I wonder who voted no, & why.
It's almost unimaginable to me that people were treated this way, legally, in the US in my lifetime.
Sadly, there seem to be way too many willing to go back, even if piecemeal
I believe her experience, like most of history, has been romanticized. That's a pretty simplistic version of what happened.
Well, yeah, kermie, and I have no idea if the "facts" that I've learned are really accurate, but it's true to what I know.
And yeah, Matt, there are echoes of that kind of marginalization in our society today, including treatment of LGBT folks,
Muslims & others. Also the disregard by many for anti-discrimination laws. It's pretty sickening.
