I still remember it till this day. In Montgomery, USA, December 1st, 1955. The day I sat beside Rosa Parks on a bus, when she refused to give her seat up for a white passenger. She was sitting in the white people's “spot”.
I remember the white person telling Rosa Parks to get up and move. But she denied. She knew the coloured people were inferior compared to the white people, yet she stood up for them. She showed no remorse.
Even when the police officers came, she still refused to get up. I thought she was a rather strong woman, yet the other white people in the bus did not like her. You could see it on their faces.
