Best Halloween Costume OF 2016 – Rosa Parks
She killed it… Best Halloween costume of 2016. I don’t celebrate Halloween anymore…. But… I got to recognize this costume right here… This little girl knocks it out of the park.
For the novice on civil rights. The picture below is of Rosa Parks.
Mrs. Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on December 1,1955. She was arrested and booked. She is credited with sparking the civil rights movement. This is where I should mention that one of the reasons Rosa Parks was motivated to not give up her seat was because of the death of 14-year-old Emmett Till, murdered a few months earlier in Money, Mississippi on August 28, 1955, for… wait for it… Emmett was murdered by two white men for whistling at a white woman.
You see back in 1955 in the good ole’ USA, the same one that Donald Trump says he wanna make “great” again, the rule was that blacks had to give up their seat on the bus to white folks. Also, blacks had to sit on the back of the bus. It was the rule. As well, it was hazardous to a black man’s health if he even looked at a white woman, let alone whistle at her.
1955 was 61 years ago. My mom is 74 years old, she was 13 in 1955. Think about that next time you stand up and pledge your allegiance to the flag fool. OUCH!
