What Lead to the Turning Point
As Rosa Parks sat in the back of the bus to get to home from work, she had worked long hours and was exhausted. She knew that at the back of the bus only colored passengers were aloud to sit, and in the front only white passengers were aloud to sit. She knew that the Jim Crow laws treated people unequally, and that every African American person struggled in the South. What lead to the turning point of her refusing to give up her seat for a white passenger, was what she really felt inside her thoughts. The white passenger had no right to tell her to get up from her seat, even when she sat in the colored section of the bus. After a long day of working, Rosa Parks deserved to sit down and give up no seat for nobody. She thought about the laws and regulations, how every African American should always do what a white person says. She thought it was wrong to treat people unequally, and she wanted to tell the world that those laws were used to discriminate African American people. She wanted to prove and show to all the people in the South that those laws caused nothing but trouble. She has been fighting for the African American peoples rights for more than ten years, protesting against every possible law that encouraged segregation. She didn't wanted to be treated like a second-class citizen just because of her race. She had already put up with the separation between African Americans and whites at schools, churches, and public places. Wherever she went, she was criticised for her looks and race. She already went through this one time where she had to enter through the rear door, and she knew no African American deserved that. She simply decided that enough was enough.
