#TBT: Freedom Riders

They faced firebombing, mob violence, and arrest as they traveled through the South to end segregation on interstate buses. John Lewis was one of them. This is the story of the Freedom Riders.

    the police gave the KKK 15 minutes headstart to beat protesters before the police arrived on the scene to arrest these beaten protesters for breach of peace , this white supremacist ideology is ingrained in the white psyche and will forever corrupt their minds they created ideology and belief system that colored people are not humans and are not equal to them to legitimize their actions this mentality is still present despite so many generations after the end of slavery and segregation , racism is truly a poison a malediction of satan himself

    It’s pretty sad when a college professor who is white, admits a vast majority of people who look like him are the evilest people on this earth.

    It may seem disrespectful if you jump to conclusions but I think the word Negro as a race should be one of honor.
