Random after school conversation with my 5 year old:
"Mommy, it was wrong to make brown-skinned people sit at the back of the bus and only let white-skinned people sit at the front, wasn't it?"
"Yes, honey, it was."
"Martin Luther King Jr was a good man."
"Yes, he was."
"Why did they arrest that lady that sat at the front?"
"Yeah. Why did she get arrested?"
"well, honey, there was a law against what she did, and when she refused to move, they arrested her because that was the law at the time."
"That was a silly law. A MEAN law."
"yes, it was. But thankfully that law is gone now, they changed it. There are still some silly laws though. Do you remember the other day when we talked about how boys can't marry boys and girls can't marry girls?"
"That's because that's still a law."
"There are some really mean laws."
"Yes, honey, there are. But hopefully that law will be changed soon."
"Yeah. By a man named DRAKE DORSON!"
