The racism on black American was not that common to see anymore after the Civil Right movement, which shows a good example of protests to government, there were really a lot of people who suffered through all the pains when laws and ruling were not fair.

Then with the Montgomery bus boycott, all blacks finally had a cause to rally in support for. Rosa Parks sparked the beginning of the Civil Rights movement, and there were a mass population of blacks to join in.
