Rosa Parks – Inner monologue

Today I was sitting in the bus on my way home to my husband. I was sitting in ‘the black men’s area’, but then a white male came into the bus. All the seats were taken, so he wanted to sit where I was sitting. I was about to get up from my seat, but this time I wouldn’t give. I wouldn’t let him be a better man than be and take my seat. I am a woman of my own rights. I will not obey the rules in this society like everyone else does. The man asked me again, but I still didn’t get up. Then the bus driver stopped the bus and went down to my seat and told me that have had to give it up. There was a lot of noise in the bus and the people were unsatisfied. They were unsatisfied with me. But I didn’t care. I still didn’t want to give my seat up to this man, so someone, I don’t know who, called the police, and then I got arrested. This society is so wrong! How can a female get arrested for sitting in a seat and won’t give it up for another male, just because the female is black and the male is white.. I don’t get it! - Sanne & Camilla K., 3.B
