Rock was bused to schools in predominately white neighborhoods of Brooklyn, where he endured bullying and beatings from white students. As he got older, the bullying became worse and Rock’s parents pulled him out of James Madison High School. He decided to drop out of high school altogether and later received a GED.
Just a reminder: Racism is not restricted to the South and it never was.
A wise black man once told me “that whites in the south like niggas in particular, not in general, and whites in the north like niggas in general, not in particular.”
my great grandma used to say that too^
Greatest Olympic Moments: Jesse Owens, Berlin, August 1936.
In August of 1936, American athlete Jesse Owens won four gold medals, setting three world records and tying a fourth in the 100 yard dash - all in front of Adolf Hitler, who had planned to use the Games as a tool to promote the physical superiority of the Aryan race.
I don’t think anyone could understand how important this man is to me.
anyone else noticing a trend here?
