On December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks’ act of rebellion on a Montgomery, Alabama bus sparked a national movement for equal rights. Parks’ impact on the civil rights movement strikes deeper than just that day on the bus—she initiated the Montgomery Bus Boycott, led by Martin Luther King, Jr., fought for fair housing in Detroit, and called for the release of political prisoners. Today, her legacy inspires a new generation of civil rights advocates.
Feminism from the West, specifically the USA, that is geared towards white middle class women, is not able to be transplanted to woman in other countries or with different cultures because it imposes our culture upon them without tolerating their differences. #HIJABIGAL #MADEFOREMPOWERMENT
This is is simply refuting the whole “all terrorists are Muslims” ideology people like to pin on the whole religion of Islam. It’s also pointing out how whenever a Christian person is a terrorist, no one resorts to blaming Christianity…….. yet when one Muslim is a terrorist people blame the whole religion. http://pablets.tumblr.com/post/161310006714
Father, who cares not for our skin color but for what is in our hearts, help us to honor Your servant, Martin Luther King, Jr., by taking up where he was forced to leave off. Teach us to honor his birthday, an American holiday, not just with words, but with works and attitudes. Give us the courage to stand up against racism in our families, schools, workplaces, churches, communities and government. Give us the strength to do as Dr. King did and take up the cause of racial equality.
