Back of the Bus...

This is not funny

Black pupils told to give seats to whites

A white bus driver in Louisiana has been suspended after she ordered black children to give up their seats to whites.

The case has stirred memories of the Rosa Parks protest of 1955 when a black woman refused to give up her seat to a white man.

The unnamed bus driver in Coushatta, a small farming town in the heart of the rural South near Shreveport, allegedly assigned seats in the back of the bus to black children at the beginning of the school term earlier this month.

When several white children got on the bus this week, the driver sent nine teenage black children to the back where there were not enough seats for them.
