Where the heroic Civil Rights movement has ended up

Allan Wall writes:

In the story about the Detroit buses I note a cruel irony.

” … one of my drivers was beat up by some teenagers down in the middle of Rosa Parks and it took the police almost 30 minutes to get there … a deserted Rosa Parks Transit Center in downtown Detroit … “

So this street in Detroit is named after Rosa Parks, lionized for fighting for the right of blacks to be treated equally on buses, and now the bus drivers themselves can’t be protected from being beat up.

See Mr. Wall’s comment and other comments about the Rosa Parks connection here.
