Rosa Parks dies at 92

May her soul rest in peace. Rosa's legacy is almost beyond words. Her action in 1955 -- refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man who demanded it (and legally, believe it or not, was "entitled" to it) -- sparked the current-era civil rights movement.

Actually, one could say the REAL civil rights movement. Unfortunately, the present day "civil rights" movement hardly resembles what Parks and King fought for.

La Shawn Barber has more.

don't I know! it's one thing for one of them negra's to want to ride in front of the bus but it's something else if they want to go to college! [Racist comment deleted]
