I happened, however, upon an article in an English newspaper two weeks ago which reported that under the Jim Crow Laws, Black children were not allowed to eat vanilla ice cream in public. Only chocolate ice cream. This was an act of suppression which pained me to the core and prompted me to go ahead and submit this post and share the pain.
Wow. That is outrageous! I’m so glad you share this piece, love. The extent of the segregation… It’s inhumane and disgusting.
As to racism still persists to this day is mind-boggling. To treat others based on their skin colors – I thought we would be more evolved than that… Truly a shame..
Thank you so much for sharing this and raising awareness, Sylvia dear!
