I understand, I was just explaining how maybe she confused her sources story. I've lived in the South all but 2.5 years and never seen such a thing. I've seen some appalling things, but not that.

I hope you are kidding with that comment.

How did a seperate bus for the black students ever become a solution to the problem?

All I can think is, "Had that happened on the south side of Chicago, that driver would have been dead of a severe and immediate beat-down."

Not that that's an answer, but unfortunately, it likely would have happened. Rough neighborhood, I grew up in.

I had posted an inquiry a few posts ago asking you where this was still taking place so that it could be brought to light and remedied. Do you know where in the South this is taking place? It definitely merits being addressed. Thanks.

Since when did we revert back to the 1950's??
No kidding. I was just at the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis seeing a replica of Rosa Parks sitting in a bus. She was so brave. I was thinking "well, at least we've come along way since then......." But I'm shocked to read that there is still this mentality of racism around . It's just unacceptable.
