1. The cops should have arrested the idiot racist librarian

The gall of that so called professional librarian, denying books to an interested youngster.

2. Try to find a movie called "Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored"

It might give you some insight into how things were. The kid was lucky, by the standards of those days not to get arrested.

Things have changed for the better, but there are those who would take us back to those days; and not just for people of color either.

4. Yeah - I absolutely thought the cops would take the librarian's side being 1959 SC.

Great video though!

14. I just finished watching 'Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored' on YouTube


Thanks for the heads up regarding the film - it was a good one

Always usually like the films Phylicia Rashad is in
