Rosa Parks was one great woman no person worth his salt should pretend not to know.  On December 1, 1955, while seated in the Colored Section of a public bus, she was asked by the bus driver to stand up and give up her seat for a White man because the White Section has been filled up.  Rosa refused.

In 1965, nearly ten years after this incident, African American teachers protesting the obstacles placed on African Americans in registering to vote, staged three marches to demonstrate their plight and protest the inequality imposed on their people.  March 7, 1965 ended in many African American marchers bludgeoned and beaten by the local police.  A second attempt on March 9th ended with the marchers voluntarily turning around after crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge.  A third attempt on March 16th finally succeeded in allowing the protesters to reach Montgomery after one week of walking by foot, on March 25, 1965.  The Civil Rights Movement of America is also the Civil Rights Movement of all Colored Countries around the world.

As a member of the "colored nations" of the earth, Chinese owe Rosa and the Montogomery Marchers a debt of gratitude, and an obligation to further their quest of equality, by sailing up and down the East China Sea, on December 1, to state the same principle, that in a public place such as the vast East China Sea, no Chinese should have to travel under the gunpoint of a foreign ADIZ intimidation, and that China as a nation, does not have to give up its seat at Diaoyudao, for any other country on any pretext or pretension.

A lot of students in Asia aren't worth their salt (drilled into passing exams and securing a job, learning and education for its sake is out of the question; naturally paucity of curious savvy students) and might not know......isn't it de rigueur to 'white up' inChina and some other nations thereabouts..

The educated upper echelons might be aware but the bumpkins won't have a clue........China is unable to have a Rosa Parks moment due to scattergun foreign policy
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?
