Back in the 1900s, people had small minds. They didn't consider all coloured people and thought that they were superior to the African-Americans.
Can I please sit here ?
One day Martin Luther King Jr. , a civil rights activist climbed on a bus full of white men and women. The only seat available was next to a white woman
No! Of Couse Not you're a colored man. You are not allowed to sit next to a white woman!
As he started to approach her, the woman started to feel angry and agitated that a black man was coming towards her.
Why Not ?!
Martin asked the woman if he could sit next to her and waited for the response as the woman became angrier and angrier by the minute.
She responded irritatedly "No! Of Couse Not you're a colored man. You are not allowed to sit next to a white woman!".
Martin responded calmly "Why not" and the lady was confused. She didn't know why he was treated unfairly or inferior to her or her husband. Martin Defied the stereotypes and ignored the fact that he wasn't even considered a human in America. He provided a safe environment for all coloured men and became known as a hero today.
