Like Atticus Finch, Parks didn’t lie to the officials when they came to arrest her, she was not apprehensive or ashamed, she walked off the bus well aware of what she had done. “Rosa Parks set out on an effortless attack to start a rebellion against the whites”(Valentine 126), what Parks did was in the moment, she wasn’t thinking of the defiance of the situation, she was tired from a long days work and would not take the nonsense this man was giving her. Even though some would say that what Rosa Parks did was brainless, her bold headedness led to many opportunities for, as they were then called, colored
Third Shift with Officer Smith April Rogers Kaplan University CJ227 Criminal Procedure Third Shift with Officer Smith Did Officer Smith’s thoughts about “those people” influence her decision-making during this stop? Officer Smith seen a vehicle while patrolling late one night. She seen there was a problem with the taillight, she thought it was busted, which would be a traffic violation, so she decided to stop the car to make sure. Officer Smith had already decided to stop the vehicle before she ever seen what the driver looked like. Her comments about “those people” were after the vehicle was pulled over.
He was looking out for her well-being and thought she was going straight home. Officer ruthless did not break any laws by asking her to get into the truck because they were friends and he felt she would be safe and he had no way of knowing how long it would be before Orsen would show up. She could have been there for another thirty minutes and it was already curfew. He could not have known that that would go riding around for a half hour and get into a wreck. I find that Susie made the wrong decisions by not getting out of the truck at a stop only four doors down from her
Dear Diary, Today was one day like no other. This African American Woman boarded on my bus earlier today and sat the neutral section. (Where both Blacks and Whites can sit after all the seats in there section are filled up) Even though she seemed like a very nice and shy lady, something about her made me fill awkward. Just a few stops later, some Whites boarded the bus but there was no more room so I told some blacks that needed those seats. So everyone around the lady, named Rosa, got up like the law says except for Rosa, she refused.
They chose not to ponder this mysteries any further, lest they overburden there cashews”(49) this only makes things even worse cause of course it happens on the day you’re in a hurry. And the rage builds more… Then there’s not only road rage but even parking lot rage. “..so I stop my car and wait for them to vacate their parking spot, and… nothing happens! They just stay there! WHAT THEY HELL ARE YOU DOING IN THERE??!!
The white and black people couldn’t hang out together, sit together, and drink out of the same drinking fountain. An example would be Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks refused to move when sitting in the front of a bus when she actually needed to be sitting in the back of the bus. Martin Luther King didn’t like the way it was going. He stepped up and spoke for what he thought was right.
On December 1, 1955, Rosa Lee Parks (nee McCauley; born 1913) refused to relinquish her seat to a white passenger on a racially segregated Montgomery, Alabama bus. She was arrested and fined but her action led to a successful boycott of the Montgomery buses by African American riders. Born Rosa McCauley in Tuskegee, Alabama, on February 4, 1913, the young girl did not seem destined for fame. Her mother was a teacher and her father, a carpenter. When she was still young she moved with her mother and brother to Pine Level, Alabama, to live with her grandparents.
She also was a active secretary for the NACCP for the Civil Rights Movement. During this time Rosa Parks was not famous, rich or powerful, but she changed America with a simple act of courage. Rosa Parks on her daily commute to work would get to transportation for the local bus. The blacks would enter the front door to pay their fare and then enter the back door to be seated. Normally blacks would be seated in the back of the bus and only time allowed to seat in the middle of the bus, if a white person didn’t want the seat.
Rosa Parks sparked the attention of America when she refused to give her seat to a white person on Thursday December 1, 1955. The 42-year-old Rosa Parks was commuting home from a long day of work at the Montgomery Fair department store by bus. At one point, the bus driver asks her to give up her seat and move to the back so a white man could seat in her seat. She didn’t move. (Kenneth Hare) Therefore, most people may think or though she disobeys his order just because she was tired, however, as Parks said in an interview, “People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true.
Even slaves had the right to vote before women even could. Women were arrested just for voting, for speaking up for what they wanted to be heard. Rosa Parks was a great inspiration to most women because she stood up to what she believed in and for what was right. She believed that women should be treated equal and people had no choice but to listen to what she had to say. Susan B. Anthony was another great inspiration to the women society.
