It’s incredible how the simplest acts of nothing can take everybody into new directions. These simple acts of nothings have dramatically changed your ways of living, the world’s way of living.
Between the story and poem you can clearly tell that both experience racial discriminations. In the story of “Rosa Parks”, Rosa stands up for here self after refusing to stand up out of here bus seat to another white man. After such simple actions were taken, such drastic movements were made. African American people soon protested by not taking buses to work but walking and car pooling instead. Bussing station lost plenty of money after her actions, but that was only a start for many more rights for freedom.
In the poem “ “, the oriental were the discriminated. During the gold rush of Canada, rail roads were being built from the west to the east. So for a little extra help they hired oriental people. But they were still treated poorly as they were always separated from white people. In the poem it tells us of a train derailing and all the oriental people at the back surviving and everyone else at the front died. Rules soon changed and said for all oriental people to sit at the front and everyone else to sit at the back (thinking it was safer). Soon after this rule another train derailed and all those at the back died, everyone at the front survived. The rule changed yet again. This rule stated oriental people may sit anywhere in the train, where ever they pleased.
Over and above all both, this story and poem speak out about little things revolving in to dramatic changes to you yourself and the world
