Saying "No" A bus ride into the history books

Have you ever heard of Abraham Lincoln? Who was he? Jeste li čuli za Abrahama Lincolna? Tko je on bio?

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States who fought a War against the South (which he won), preserved the Union and abolished slavery. Abraham Lincoln bio je 16. predsjednik Sjedinjenih Američkih Država koji je u borbi protiv Juga (Konfederativnih Država Amerike) pobijedio, te je tako sačuvao Uniju (SAD) i ukinuo ropstvo.

Does that mean that black people had the same rights as white people? Znači li to da su od tad crnci imali ista prava kao i bijelci?

Watch a short cartoon about what was life like back in 1950's - 85 years after slavery was abolished! Pogledaj kratak crtić o tome kako je izgledao život crnaca u 1950- ima, 85 godina nakon ukidanja ropstva!

THE SEPARATION OF PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR RACE, CULTURE, RELIGION, OR OTHER REASON

On December 1, 1955 a brave woman said: "NO!" 1. prosinca 1955. jedna hrabra žena se usprotivila segregaciji i rekla je: "NE!"

Od tada do danas nije se mnogo promijenilo (posebice na jugu SAD-a) - i zadnjih dana smo svjedoci prosvjeda za jednakost u SAD-u i policijske brutalnosti prema crncima.

Handcuffed. Knee on his neck. Face Down. They did nothing.

He called the officer "Sir." They did nothing.

He begged for his life. He begged for water. He begged for mercy.They did nothing.

His nose bled. His body trembled. He lost control of his bladder. They did nothing.

He cried out, "I can't breathe." They did nothing.

Twelve more times. "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." "I can't breathe." They did nothing.

One last time, he gasped, "I can't breathe." They did nothing.

He lost consciousness. They did nothing.

A firefighter demanded they check his pulse. They did nothing.

Off duty medical personnel begged them to stop. They did nothing.

Deprived of oxygen. His organs screaming. His brain frantic. They did nothing.

They watched George Floyd die. His life fading. A slow death. They did nothing.

A lynching on the ground. They did nothing.

For eight agonizing minutes. Four officers watched. He cried out for his Mom... A grown man... Crying out for the woman who gave him life... As he feared joining her in death... And still they did nothing.

A black man. A gentle giant. Murdered because he was black. And still, they've done nothing.

Probable Cause exists. A Double Standard exists. The officers should be arrested. And still they've done nothing.

Rest In Peace 🙏🏼🙏🏼 GEORGE

May justice be served.

Razmislite o ljudskim pravima! Krenimo od Rose Parks, razmislite o tome kako biste se vi osjećali da zato što npr. imate crnu, a ne smeđu kosu ne smijete sjediti na određenom sjedalu u autobusu, da ne smijete glasati zato što npr. pišete lijevom, a ne desnom rukom!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ~ The Declaration of Independence
