The reason I still have that white people can be for equality and actively stand up against racism is that there were white Americans at the Selma to Montgomery marches, there were white people who offered to taxi black students of the Montgomery bus boycotts to no personal gain.
No looting happened in Selma or in Montgomery you are undermining your own point by posting movements working when they care about how public sees them over mindlessly causing uproar where authorities can just brand you looters and don't give a fuck about what you want.
And considering by any historical standards the most effective protests that changed American history were:
1. The March on Washington 1963
2. The Selma to Montgomery March 1964
3. Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955.
These is what makes us inferior to the system we not living a civilised lifestyle because historic injustices but yet don’t help each to fight a common enemy. RIOTS Don’t work if they did the Selma-Montgomery march we’d have freed us we not still been killed change the approach
If the Selma to Montgomery was so successful, why are unarmed black still being lynched with impunity in the US today? Btw, did you know more blacks in America were killed by law enforcement under Obama than during the whole Jim Crow era?
also silent protest that u might have missed: the Selma to Montgomery walk, the freedom riders. there have been countless peaceful protests that have been met only with violence so why are people shocked when we return with violence too?
...home the hearse driver noticed Staff Sgt. Williams had a faint pulse. The nearby hospitals were Jim Crow, so he was driven 100 miles to a V.A. hospital. Williams organized the 1st attempt @ a march fr. Selma-Montgomery
