Do you think these historical events, rules, and laws still impact our society today? What are your thoughts after viewing these videos? I absolutely believe that historical events, rules and laws impact our society today. We are creatures of habit; that being said this mentality of thinking needs to change. I live in a small town in Texas; our community is not taking notice in the Black Lives Matter movement. This saddens me to the core, because I know that is time for change to give equality to each man, woman and child.
