The Silent Parade of 1917; 100th anniversary of civil rights march commemorated by Google Doodle

Similar to the Native Americans desendants of enslaved Africans in America have had to suffer (unprovoked, unfounded, unwarranted) savage, malevolent and vicious attacks by white Americans. These attacks while not sanctioned by those in authority were also not condemned. Countless times the government of this country refused to honor treaties, broke promises and did not provide for refuge nor restitution for these minority.

It was against these forces that the people marched.
