Civil-Rights Protests Have Never Been Popular

Civil-Rights Protests Have Never Been Popular:

actjustly:

“If young people attempting to board a bus are unacceptable, if gathering on the National Mall is verboten, if preaching nonviolence gets you harassed by your own government & then killed, if a protest founded in consultation with military veterans is offensive, then what specific manner of protest is white America willing to endure?

It’s almost as if the manner of protest isn’t the real problem.”

// Ta-Nehisi Coates
