This is a photo of the first Black girl to attend an all white school in the United States—Dorothy Counts—being jeered and taunted by her white, male peers. This photo encompasses a lot of things that I really hate: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality…
[Her face speaks volumes- I see strength, confidence, absence of fear. The jackass fools in the background are not worth commenting on. A picture can speak 1,000 words.- Bryan]
What’s funny is this picture is relived everyday by many different people- gays, lesbians, and still african americans, and even whites. But most people today look at this picture and feel for the young Dorothy- how could we have thought it was okay to outcast her? you may think… But stuff like this still happens everyday. I hope that one day soon a similar picture will surface of a gay man being taunted and most people will think, how could we have thought it was okay to outcast him?
