Classification Letter

Hello James F. Blake,
During the day of December 1 1955, I was arrested because I was tired of giving up my dignity. I know that they are laws that have to be fallowed, but what exactly is a law? The dictionary defines it as “the principles and regulations established in a community by some authority.” While, Hobbes once said “The law is the public conscience.” There has always been a theory that they are two sets of laws- the unjust and just.

African American have been facing discrimination for hundreds of years. There comes a point when our tolerance for the unjust must define its limit. This is when my limit came, I was tired of been treated like I was some kind of unwanted child. But not only was I unwanted by my mother, it was my whole family that despised me as well. Put yourself in the position of a black man in the United States of America. You now have to face the segregationist social customs. You have see how your values and rights are been demonized to nothing by people that, may sometimes, have less education and knowledge than you do. You get to feel how your tolerance grows less patient by every unjust law passed such as the Segregation Laws. One of the most famous activist named Gandhi stated; “an unjust law is itself a species of violence”.

Even though we are facing a lot of unjustness there is still hope for the good of people. Several incidents have occurred such as the Brown vs. Board of Education to believe that tolerance to co-exist as one human race has won. A just law is one that makes society fair and equal. It gives a feeling of safety and prosperity within your nation. We have made a huge step by accepting the Brown vs. Board of Education trial it has made us more aware of what our true value as a nation. History has shown throughout different eras laws that were made by men, although they seemed just laws at that time, as society changed and evolved those laws became flawed and therefore were deemed unjust

To error is to be human. Mankind has the capability to adapt grow and evolve and learn from mistakes. This will only be the awakening of a nation. As time goes by we will realize that we have to stick together in order for us to become a true united nation. No one ever said better than Martin Luther King Jr. in August 28 1963, in his speech “I Have a Dream”. In which he quoted “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal".

Sincerely,
Rosa Parks
