Rosa Parks

Rosa Parks is dead. I read an article sometime ago about other people before her who had refused to give up their seats, though Mrs.Parks is the first name we remember.

Its often enough we find opponents hijacking just causes by making character asasinations, use some blemish in the protestor's past to muddle the issue, to wipe any sympathy. So then, it was obviously an intelligent decision to wait for someone like Mrs.Parks, a 42 year old respectable, tired seamstress who was arrested for not giving up her seat to a man, to stage a major protest. Sad that one has to consider such things too.
