Civil Rights Protest prep. Hair pulling and blowing smoke in her face to prepare her for the experience of sitting in restaurants that were not willing to serve people of color.

This was not in the way way back past. My parents grew up through this.

This is why I laugh when people say that racism is over because slavery ended so long ago. NEWSFLASH, slavery ended on Dec. 18, 1865, only 148 years years ago… only 3 or 4 generations ago. My grandmother’s grandmother was a slave. Then when you add the Jim Crow era and the Civil Rights era, black people have only been “people” by law for 50 years.

The Butler (2013) had some of this in the movie.

Our little house in El Salvador has steps like this leading into the ocean :3 when the tide is low, you can step down onto the beach. When the tide is high, you can step right into the water.
