Somewhere in the world the blacks boycotted the buses because they were always forced to give up their seat on the bus to a white person if there was no room. They would either have to sit in a different seat, which was normally the back of the bus or they would have to stand. They found this to be unfair so they decided to boycott the buses until they could sit where they wished.
