this is always one of my favorite Black History stories because it shows that 1) all white people DIDN'T/DON'T hate black people (i'm so tired of hearing that excuse) & 2) our people fought for EVERYTHING & even if we take it for granted that we can just look at or step to someone of another race, it's possible because someone was willing to fight not just for themselves, but for us too.
