  3. I assume Ms. Cooper was black ??? — in the EVIL AL racist regime in 1965.

    RIP – akin to the late black Ms. Rosa Parks in her bus ride in 1955 – to end the EVIL racist stuff in *civil rights* via the 14th Amdt — seems now like 5,000 years ago in the Stone Age.

    How many EVIL regimes since Adam and Eve ???
