Oratorasaurus

Seriously, ask me anything. I always respond. Other than that, I am what the blog shows: I fight for mens, womens, gays, trans rights for gender equality, I am a firearm supporter, have issues with authority, love my pit bulls, have issues with kettles refusing to notice the pots, and I am rather open about my geekier hobbies (minecraft, indie games, and pokemon anyone?).

At 4:30 pm on this day in 1960, Ezell Blair Jr., David Richmond, Joseph McNeill, and Franklin McCain, all students at A&T University, sat down at a segregated lunch counter in a Greensboro Woolworth’s store, ordered coffee, and stayed in their seats, despite being refused service, until the store closed. 5 days later, over 500 students filled that store and others in downtown Greensboro. From there the sit-ins spread across the state and across the South, transforming the Civil Rights movement. Think about those four young men today as you drink your coffee. We owe them much.
