Ruby Bridges, the little girl who integrated New Orleans public schools, meets with President Obama. 

ruby… one of the fearless ones.

Chills.

Also, think about how young this woman is. 1960 was only a half a century ago.

Ms. Bridges walked into an empty school building for first grade because of the color of her skin within the lifetime of many other living people.

When people say racism is dead, or that nobody thinks about color at all - consider Ms. Bridges story and life, and the people who opposed her attending school that day who are still alive, contributing to society and voting. Think about the children they’ve raised and how they think about society. Some of them may create the laws that effect our lives.

Our job is to diligently maintain dignity for ourselves, demand respect and prove that skin color is physical through our actions. We are all people who share a common bond.
