“Forrest Gump” by Winston Groom Forrest Gump was banned in 1999 at the Bay Point School in South Dade County, according to “The Pennsylvania Center”. It has been banned for the following reasons: “pokes fun at blacks”, uses explicit language, and has sexual content. While I can see why the book was banned, I don’t think it should be. Students should have the freedom to read what they please. Just because a book has racial slurs, doesn’t mean it should be banned.
During the 2008 election African-Americans came out in much larger numbers than the previous years. The 2008 presidential elections were said to be the most racially and ethnically diverse in U.S. history, with nearly one-in-four votes cast by non-whites, according to a new analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Center. The voter turnout rate among young black eligible voters was higher than that of young eligible voters of any other racial and ethnic group in 2008 (Lopez and Taylor).

In 1956 the Supreme Court made it unconstitutional for segregation in buses supporting the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Although these events happened segregation still continued.
I was taken by police to the Montgomery jail for violating the laws of segregation. Then, a week later, I was to go to court. Nobody knew I was going to do it, but after I did it, other African Americans started refusing to get up for white people. When I went to court on December 5th, no black people rode the bus on that day. It made black people more united and stronger.
Because of the boycott and the social protests Montgomery removed the law of racial segregation on buses and public transportation. Which, was a small step to equality. Why did this action cause a movement of civil rights and cause Rosa Parks to go to jail for it? At the time in Montgomery and elsewhere all public transportation were split into separate places for white and black people to sit. If a bus was filled and there were no places for white passengers on the bus to sit, then bus driver would ask the black passengers to give up their seats.

According to Savali, the community found a source of water (a well) but soon after find that the well ran dry and some say that it is too contaminated to drink from. The well was deemed too contaminated to drink back to the early 1980’s. Officials say, “that a bacterium that stems from hogs and livestock”, is the reason why the communities water is contaminated (Savali 2016).
