Many of Today’s Black Activists Sully Rosa Parks’ Legacy

Sixty years ago today, the Montgomery Bus Boycott began when Rosa Parks was arrested after refusing to give up her seat. It should be noted that Parks was actually sitting in the “colored” section of the bus, but that section was moved by the bus driver behind Parks once the bus had an overflow of white passengers. It was then that she refused to give up her seat and was arrested for it. Although she was not the first to do so, her act would capture national and eventually global attention and would begin in earnest the process of desegregation of public accommodations and facilities in this country.

As much as anything else, what resonated with the American public was Parks’ character which was one of dignified resistance. Unfortunately, there are too many black activists who see fit to sully Rosa Parks’ legacy whether it’s Al Sharpton falsely accusing a white ADA of rape, the people from Black Lives Matter who chant for dead cops or the Black Justice League which demands separate “safe spaces” for black students at Princeton University.

It is sad to think that in 60 years, black activists in this country have gone from calling for the desegregation of buses to the resegregation of universities.
