Suppose Rosa Parks decided to give up her seat that day? Her refusing to give up her seat and getting arrested is what sparked the civil rights movement. Where would America be today as far as race relations and equal rights? Would legal segregation still be with us today in 2010?

A lot of the people on this board would be a lot less paranoid, that's for sure.

But then the Lefties would have to fight over who brings up the next grandiose lie.

I think you forget, the civil rights movement began, long before Rosa Parks, Dr King, and the notables that we recognize today.

Sooner or later, things would have changed. Hatred always loses in the end. Well, kinda, it changes to another group usually.

According to the race baiters the Tea Partiers are bringing back hate. I didn't see any hate at the last party I attended.

In fact, at the end of it we all held hands and sang We Are The World. Some of us even held up lighters.


Mmm, sorry, I'm getting weepy.

Um...Rosa Parks was not the first person to refuse to yield her seat to the whites...:X

And the Civil Rights Movement is imminent, in any case. When you push people long enough, there's going to be resistance.
