Bey and Jay first shouted each other at the 2004 VMAs when there was still speculation whether they were dating or not. Then here we are 10 years later. It took 10 years to build up to one of the most beautiful moments in the history of award shows.
The fantastic irony is that this moment occured also at the VMAs where Jay presented the Michael Jackson Vanguard award to Beyoncé this time as Husband and Wife along with their beautiful child Blue Ivy Carter.
sorry white people but if you dont support mike brown & the people of fergusons’ protests in 2014 you probably wouldnt have supported abolition in the 1800s or civil rights movements in the 1960s & having the ability to recognize something as morally justified in hindsight something that has already been accepted by the mainstream as morally justified is nice for u but on all practical levels useless to everyone else
Ruby Bridges, the brave little African American girl’s entry into an all-white school on November 14, 1960.
As soon as Bridges entered the school, white parents pulled their own children out; all teachers refused to teach while a black child was enrolled.
Only one person agreed to teach Ruby and that was Barbara Henry, from Boston, Massachusetts, and for over a year Mrs. Henry taught her alone, “as if she were teaching a whole class.”
Every morning, as Bridges walked to school, one woman would threaten to poison her; because of this, the U.S. Marshals dispatched by President Eisenhower, who were overseeing her safety, only allowed Ruby to eat food that she brought from home.
Another woman at the school put a black baby doll in a wooden coffin and protested with it outside the school, a sight that Bridges said “scared me more than the nasty things people screamed at us.”
