    And look at what she fought for, and how this generation remembers her.

    She was kind of a troublemaker but the Law, Bus Driver, and cops were complete assholes. It wasn't easy for her to do what she did so she deserves all the credit. She was not the first to violate the law, just the most sympathetic.

    She was handpicked by white communist subversives. The whole thing was pre-planned.

    She was an activist with the full force of an organization behind her to provide legal services and bail her out immediately. It was no spontaneous act. She was not even the first black person to resist the "back of the bus" laws nor the first legal case. Just the one with a political organization behind her to push the issue. The NAACP chose her to do the act and start a legal case. She had gotten off the bus on a prior occasion when told to move.

    She did lose her (low paid) job and get some death threats, but so did a lot of people standing up to the Klan mentality in those areas. So that required some degree of "bravery". But financially, the act certainly improved her life vastly in the long run.

    Focusing on a single individual detracts from the real cause that people should be treated equally under the law. Which was the point of the act of defiance, not developing some hero to worship. There is some evidence she tended to play up her act as more spontaneous than it was in interviews, possibly on the instructions of her NAACP handlers.

    Actually the officer arrested her was pretty chill, she asked why he was doing this to her and he replied something like "I don't know, but that's the law and I have to enforce it".

    Claudette Colvin was the first African American arrested for resisting bus segregation.
