Furthermore, bus boycotts are an efficient strategy that was used in the 1950s to 60s. Because buses were segregated, many African Americans boycotted using buses. In Tallahassee, black students waved at the buses going by (Document 7). The lack of African Americans using the bus led to more empty buses, soon persuading the bus systems to integrate. The bus boycott in Tallahassee followed soon after the famous Montgomery Bus Boycott.
These ads gave detailed descriptions of black people and offered compensation if they were found, thus treating them as property and not as people. In the 20th century there was many tv series and movies that had prejudiced displays that encouraged stereotypes. The typical African American male stereotype is displayed as gangsters, post officer workers, athletes, and entertainers. African American women are displayed as maids, sexual objects, and angry. The Disney films Dumbo and Fantasia, both released in 1940, had racist, stereotypical black images.

Coach Gerald 's had come up with a plan to give the football players supper before practice because most African American’s didn 't get food after school. The next day 6 African American’s had joined the football team once they saw that the coach was caring for them. All of the white players were absolutely irate about the situation until a man named Hank came into the school and talked to the team about God.
The civil rights era had many important times. But one of the most important moments in the civil rights era was the Montgomery bus boycott. That was when African Americans were being mistreated on the busses so they did not ride them. It was sparked by the arrest of Rosa Parks in December 1955. It was led by martin Luther King Jr.
When Robinson sat next to his friend who was black, but could pass for white, he was asked to move his seat. He refused to do so and was asked to get off the bus. Robinson was taken to court in this case. Unfortunately, the courts did not rule in his favor, but the word did get out that injustices had occurred. The NAACP got involved and so did other civil rights activist.

This is important because it keeps the nation’s rules simple, orderly, and understandable for the average citizen. Furthermore the Mayflower Compact stated that laws should be made for the general good. In emerging governments this tends to get glossed over. Opting instead to enact laws that will boost their GDP over their country’s general happiness. A happy nation, however, is easier to run, as the natural tendency will be to trust the government, rather than fear or despise it.

After Rosa Parks was arrested for not giving up her seat to a white man, many African-Americans began to walk to work instead of taking buses. This greatly impacted the bus companies economically because African-Americans were 75% of bus riders. This forced the bus companies to integrate and was eventually mandated by law. The bus boycott incident forced other cities in the south to rethink their laws regarding segregation. For example, on January 10, 1957 “bombs destroyed five black churches and the home of Reverend Robert S. Graetz, one of the few white Montgomerians who had publicly sided with the MIA(Montgomery Improvement Association)”(1).
A huge line of black people would line up in protest. The deputes came too, keeping them from getting water or food the entire time. From seven to four thirty, Everyone would line up in 95 degree weather without water or food.

Segregation was still apart of US custom, black people were still denied seating with white guests at diners and public restaurants. Four students from Greensboro, North Carolina decided to have stay seated in their seats and in turn sparked a revolution of "sit-ins" all around the country. News spread of another bold defiance from white supremacy and support came running in, even support from white allies who decided no longer to be just witnesses to this oppression. A newer younger civil rights movement was birthed from these young men, but with this movement, there also came pressures against them from within the black community. From the black older cook who reprimanded the boys for seating, blaming their defiance for the employment troubles facing black workers, to the older black figures who opposed the students actions for sometimes altruistic, sometimes selfish reasons.
During his postgame interview he made many comments that included him going to be some night “starving” because he can’t afford to pay for his own food. After this comment was made many other college athletes came out of the woodwork including star quarterback Robert “Bo” Wallace and former players such as Allen Iverson and Shawn Kemp to add support to Shabazz’s claim. A majority of student athletes come from a poor or middle class family that cannot support or provide the necessary funds for the athlete’s food or other important needs. Getting a job is also rarely a viable option. Athletes cannot focus on a job when they must continue to develop athletically and keep their GPA at a level to which they can compete, making it hard for the NCAA to say that there is no need for a so a called
