When I speak of civil rights, I am speaking about the rights of ordinary people regardless of which color they may have, a civilian is a person who is not a Police, a Soldier, a Navy and people who are not involved in the military and other armed forces of Government. I have learned much lessons from the civil rights movement, when the blessaed Lady Parks, was on her way home from work, and took that bus, she sat downn in an empty seat, there was no one sitting in that seat, she did not pull any white person from that seat and then sit down in that seat. But when a white person came into the bus, they tried to move her from her seat, in order to give that seat to the white person, and, she respectfully refused to get up and give that white person that seat, and that was when they called the police and have her arrested, because, at that time, it was the law, that black people should give their seat to any white person who was without a seat on any bus.
So, here is the lesson which I learned, black people in Mongomery County, refused to take the bus and walk to and from work, for 381 days, with black people sharing rides with each other and the buses were running empty, while black people were walking, showing to the bus company and the government in general, that they will not be dis-respected on the buses any more, if they cannot sit on the buses, they would walk to and from to work and keep their money in their pockets. So, they were forced to change the vicious rule or law, after 381 days of black people walking going about their business. So, the law was forced to be changed, because of the courage and self determination of black people, who were leading the Civil Rights Movement. Today, you can take a bus and sit in any seat you would like to, without being molested by racsts.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
