Yesterday was the 57th anniversary of the arrest of Rosa Parks. 57 years ago Rosa refused to move from her seat to the back of the bus.
It was only 57 years ago that it was legal to tell someone just because of their skin color they had to give up their seat. Discrimination like this was widely accepted, it took one brave person to stand up and fight it.
Yesterday President Obama visited the bus Rosa Parks was arrested in. It’s a powerful photo.
Don’t forget the recent past.
I’ve been to the Civil Rights Museum where the bus is kept. Where are the statues that are normally seated there?
I will say it’s an experience to see things such as this in person. Last time I went, I got so overcome with emotions that I was moved to tears. This is what so many before me fought for, was all I could think.

Take a moment to appreciate.
President Obama is asking your questions about preventing middle class tax hikes—right now. Tweet yours with #My2K.
Do they have analysts standing by to filter the millions of tweets flooding in? Not to mention the trolls.
No dig at Obama at all, but I always wonder bout when celebrities ask a question on their social networks, are they really reading the thousands of replies they get, or is it simply validation to feed their egos?
She real mad. I skimmed through most of this but its a barrel of laughs.
She REAL MAD.
And prally really drunk.
But its so so soooooooooooooooooooooo funny.
They’re getting ready to eat each other.
First thing I noticed: 24 MINUTES!? What the hell is she talmbout for 24 minutes?
Next, no video? She must only have a mic. That’s cool. But then she shows her TV? Bitch, why you hiding? Show your face if you got some shit to say!
Obama, his administration and other liberal POC
are not above critique simply because we like them,think they’re cool or the lesser of the other evils as far as politicians go. Yes they have done great things and aren’t complete assholes however; anybody in office, whether you put them there or not, should be held accountable for what they do while they’re in office.
Not to steal anybody’s joy or nothing
But what happens in 4 years when Obama can’t run again? THAT’S what we need to be concerned with. #ThinkingAhead Because please believe, we haven’t seen the last of Mittens. He WILL be back.
But to revel in the moment just cause…
Attention, all you niggaz, all you bitches
Time to put down the Cristal, time to take off the ice for a minute
Time to throw a little mud in this motherfucker..
Do NOT post pictures of your ballot!! It’s illegal in many states!
Says who? Where did this come from? How will they know you posted it and then connect it to your identity? Just wondering…sources
First things first, Google is always a friendly source.
Second, why would you want to take pictures of you in a voting booth, or of your ballot? You wanna document the occasion of you voting; fine. Take pictures once you’re outside wearing your “I Voted” sticker. Take it a step further, and try not to get other voters outside the polling place in your shot.
Some things are just better left private. You don’t have to blast everything on the internet.
Take offense if you must.
Dear People Taking Pictures in the Voting Booth
Is nothing sacred anymore?
Does instagraming your voting ballot somehow make you a cool person? Does it make a difference?
I mean damn, they should’ve never gave you niggas money. You don’t know how to ‘preciate shit.
I don’t think Obama is perfect and I don’t blindly trust him,
but Romney is contradictory, homophobic, sexist, against Planned Parenthood, anti-abortion, focused on the upper class, entirely confused as to what the middle class even IS, environmentally unconcerned, and an asshole in general…
This sums up my feelings on both candidates.
“sorry. Didn’t mean to offend anyone.”
“I apologize for the wording.”
We’re not here for your stank ass apology. You said it exactly how you meant to say it. Don’t try to cover that ass now that you got caught saying nigga in a public forum. Be a G and take that L.
ON TODAY’S EPISODE OF WHITE BITCHES SAY THE DARNEST THINGS
I love when the person who took the screencap doesn’t blur the names.
Oh look, that first bitch has a tumblr too
Also, I would love to see the second bitch try to explain herself when Secret Service gets on her sorry ass.
For your viewing pleasure…
They don’t even try to hide it anymore. Yet, neither one of them looks old enough to vote so they just talking for the sake of looking ‘cool’ to their friends.
Well played, Tumblr. Well played.
Four for you, Tumblr!
And none for Mitt Romney.
