After reading this article explain the thing African Americans did just to be treated equal it was a bit upsetting. The way I see it is that back then people were too ignorant to see how they were treating others. Today I sit here living a slightly peaceful life thanks to the brave men and women who fought for my rights as a human being. I now have the same chances as anyone else to succeed in this world and that's how it should be in my opinion. So to sum this up I tip my hat to all the ones who came before me and overcame a great time of depression.
