"Civil rights activist Rosa Parks refused to surrender her bus seat to a white passenger." She was one of the reasons they ended segregation. When she went on this bus she decided to sit at the front of the bus, at this time black people are supposed to sit at the back. She wouldn't move and ended up getting arrested. I am really glad the world has changed but not enough. Everyone needs to love each other. Religion, race, gender, etc should not matter.
In the book "Poison" it shows racism when Harry is yelling at Ganderbai. The book says "Mr. Pope, you are of course quite sure you saw it in the first place?' 'You don't think you might possibly have been dreaming, do you, Mr. Pope?'‘Are you telling me I'm a liar?' he shouted. 'Why, you dirty little Hindu sewer rat! 'Shut up, Harry!' I said’. 'You dirty black-‘ 'Harry!' I called. 'Shut up, Harry!' It was terrible, the things he was saying." If the doctor would have been white he wouldn't have had said these thing.
This is one of the old bathroom signs when there was segregation. This was when white people we way more privilege than colored people. At this time there was pretty much two of everything, one for the white people and one for the colored people. They couldn't use the same bathrooms, drinking fountains, etc. They were treated very different.
In this quote, it talks about how no one is born racist. Over their lifetime they become racist as they are influenced and taught this. If people learn to be racist/hateful, it states they can also learn to love as well.
This song is about the racial issues on the streets, and how everyone knows that it will never change; there will always be poverty and homeless people and violence on the streets, "Some things will never change.".....
