Re: [RC] Boycotting Sporting Events (was: UAE Culture) - heidi

But we have addressed that issue. Our political process has worked. Rosa
 Parks who dared to not give up her seat to a white man on the bus that
day - set off a revolution that changed this country for the better

And Truman, Jesse Owens was one of many who went before Rosa Parks who led
up to making it possible for her action to be a turning point.  Nothing
exists in a vacuum.


PS:  Nowhere have I tried to suggest that Jesse Owens "prevented" the
slaughter by Hitler's Nazis--it certainly didn't.  But EVERY action such
as his adds up over time.  His Olympic performance was just one small part
of the overall protest against what Hitler did.
