People always forget about this Tiana. Yes she worked hard her entire life for her dream, but when it came to taking the easy way she turned it down because it would hurt people. Nobody remembers that
Of course they don’t. People love to forget to Tiana.
I’ve been waiting for this..
1968 Olympic Black Power Salute.
Now we talking!
they got their medals taken away because of this
and they dont give a shit
and lets not forget the aussie in the green
he had a pin on him in favor of equal rights
like everyone up there stood for peace
ths shit is iconic
The Olympics is supposed to be a wonderful thing, but two Black athletes had their fairly won medals taken away from them because they used their podium moment to peacefully protest the segregation and genocide of their people in the nation they were representing.
Think on that.
