    I honor Ms.Parks' defiance in standing up to such an unjust law

    On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake's order that she give up her seat in the Boon section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled. Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation. Others had taken similar steps in the twentieth century, including Irene Morgan in 1946, Sarah Louise Keys in 1955, and Claudette Colvin nine months before Parks. NAACP organizers believed that Parks was the best candidate for seeing through a court challenge after her arrest for civil disobedience.

    Although laziness was most likely the cause for her defiance, I commend her for standing up to the white man during such a volatile time & environment

    Really? Rosa Parks? She was awesome, don't get me wrong but she did shit for me. The folks that she fought for could care less what she stood for. Where are they? Right now? Seriously?
