With our sister Rosa Parks laying in honor in the Rotunda, Washington D.C. (the 1st woman to be honored in this fashion), and with flags scheduled to be flown half-staff on her burial Wednesday.....I'm pleased to see our warrior ancestor get the recognition she deserves. Sister Parks has received honor from thousands of visitors (mostly black), while in Washington & Alabama. Most of these are ordinary people, who recognized how her actions opened doors for them. She has also been honored by celebrities like Oprah Windrey; and Aretha Franklin; to Politicians like Donald Rumsfield; Condoleezza Rice, who was quoted as saying, "without Mrs. Parks, I probably would not be standing here today as secretary of state"; and of course the president: George W. Bush. Although there is no doubt that many of the people honoring sister Parks are doing so honestly. The sceptic in me can't help but wonder if the likes of George Bush, Donald Rumsfield, and Condoleezza Rica are using this unfortunate event as a political opportunity? The Bush administration has a horrible track record dealing with the African American community, this record has further diminished after their handling of Katrina. I am further doubtful that an administration which seems to have such contempt for Civil Rights Laws, can truly appreciate the role of Rosa Parks. Am I alone in this opinion or does the rest of the family agree with me?
