Feel her worth.

September 03, 1994 A man accused of breaking into civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks' house did not know she lived there, but recognized her once inside, police said Friday.

"He said:'Aren't you Rosa Parks?' She said,'Yeah,' and he went ahead and robbed her anyway," Detroit Police Investigator Daniel Budz said.

Yes, that was when the democrat party starting introducing civil rights into its platform and they all started turning to the republican party which still allowed them to practice their racism and bigotry...

an interesting part of this story is that Rosa Parks was not the first to refuse to give up her seat. not bya long shot.

she was the most marketable to do so by the civil rights movement. previously, some men had done hte same, but they would have been seen as headstrong blackmen (read: uppity ____). then a young lady did the same just before Parks, but she was an unwed mother, and that wouldn't play well in the public eye. then Rosa parks came along...a marketers dream...

America still feels her worth
To offer a correction: "[some of] America still feels her worth". I know I don't.

Rosa Parks is a true African hero.

Leave America out of it. Blacks do everything else. They want it to be only black....NAACP, African beauty pagent, Black Music Awards, BET, Martin Luther King Jr Birthday, Black history month and on and on.

Most could care less.

It was Bull Connor, a member of the Democrat National Committee, who turned the hoses on the marchers in Birmingham, and it was the Republicans who made up the majority that passed the 1964 Civil Rights Act, over the filibuster of such Democrat paragons as William Fulbright and Al Gore Sr.- and Grand Kleagle Byrd.

It was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who founded the Ku Klux Klan.

Want some history? I'll give you some history. Are they going to mention in that black history how a group of people took a once great city and tore it to a living hell without using a single bomb? How people are afraid to go into that city. Are they going to write their history to reflect that?

Hey good citizen go visit Detroit and come back and tell me about it.
