“Say, ‘Now, America, look at your promises. Look at how you treated your poor Negro citizens. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.’ But you know…you can’t shame segregation. Rattlesnakes don’t commit suicide. Ball teams don’t strike themselves out. You gotta put ‘em out.
-US Civil Rights Activist Fred Shuttlesworth
