Do you know about African suffrage?

Have you ever heard of African American suffrage? Have you heard it but don't quite know any stories or facts on it? Have you every heard of the Woolworth sit in? This is a good example of kind of what it is and was like to be a colored. So what happened in the Woolworth sit in is four African American college students when to a diner and sat at the bar. Now this diner did not serve Colored. But the four students still sat at the bar until a waiter or waitress came to take their order. They came back every day, and every day they got denied the right to be served. Day in and day out no matter what people said or what people did those four college students kept coming back and back and back. All they wanted to do is get their order taken, that's it. They didn't want a fight they didn't want the negative comments, all they wanted was their order to be taken. This really shows what it was like, Colored were not even human in the white mans eye.

Are Men Higher Than Women?

Female suffrage is still happening today. Men are still treated with higher than women. Only 28 women chaired in congress, 45 colored women ever served in congress. And Wal-Mart only has about 30% of women in management. Men are put over women in the workplace. As if they are any different. When will women get treated equally as men?

Basketball in the 1920's?

Basketball was first invented but Dr. James Naismith in the January 20th, 1892 in Springfield, Massachusetts. But in the 1920/s it was more of a side sport. Hockey and Football games were not going on. In most areas they closed down because there wasn't enough players to play the game. But there were still teams like the Celtics, the Rens, and a few more and they were know as the ABL, the American Basketball league. Once the ABL was created more and more players and teams formed to later make what is today called the NBA.
