    Rosa Parks was the central figure in a fraudulent, staged Civil Rights event.

    She was never in danger, and isn't a Hero. .... :cool:

    You'd think this is something conservatives would celebrate. She stood up against the oppressive forces of big government.

    Black civil rights workers were being lunched throughout the South

    Standing up and launching a boycott put her life at risk

    Negroes needed to know their place. Rosa Parks did not

    Civil Rights protesters were American Patriots fighting for freedom

    The south needs to move away from celebrating a despicable Confederacy to celebrating it true patriots

    Those who fought for Civil Rights

    Another young black woman refused to give up her seat and few months before Rosa Parks staged event and was arrested.

    But since she was thought to be pregnant and was unmarried, the Civil Rights leadership didn't think the teenage girl fit the image the public image the organization wanted to present.

    So they hand picked the ringer Rosa Parks, who was the secretary NAACP's local chapter, to be the poster child for the Montgomery bus boycott. ... :cool:
