Jim Crow laws stripped blacks of basic rights. Despite landmark civil rights laws, many public schools were still segregated, blacks still faced barriers to voting, and violence by white racists continued. Such open racism is mostly gone in America, but covert racism is alive and well. You cannot be afraid to speak up and speak out for what you believe. You have to have courage, raw courage.
One individual can begin a movement that turns the tide of history. Martin Luther King in the Civil Rights Movement, Mohandas Ganhi in India, Nelson Mandela in South Africa and Colin Kaepernick in the NFL are examples of people standing up with courage and non-violence to bring about needed changes. #1906 #alphaphialpha #alphasforkaepernick #greeks #d9 #selma #bloodysunday #kaepernick @phirst_pham @phirstpham0608
