On This Day: 1998

The following is the true, previously untold, story of what happened on this day in the history of black America.

During her later years, Rosa Parks held firm to the idea that federally mandated subjugation was never acceptable. In 1998, she committed one of her final acts of civil disobedience, by refusing to pay a parking fine, because she got back to her car just as the meter expired. The government official at the scene, Parking Officer Ray Donovan, failed to recognise Rosa Parks, believing her to be just another belligerent old woman.
When news of the fine received national attention, Donovan said that he was just doing his job, and had already started writing the ticket when Parks approached him.

This is satire and is not intended to offend anyone. If you believe this is in any way racist, please contact me on Twitter to discuss why you don’t agree with this post.
