Albert Einstein, America, and Blackhistory: Albert Einstein teaching a physics class at Lincoln University (HBCU in Pennsylvania) in 1946. The Nobel prize winning scientist said: "The separation of the races is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it." Repost @theblaquelioness - Six Ways Albert Einstein Fought for Civil Rights. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ 1. Shortly before moving to America, Einstein backed a campaign to defend the Scottsboro Boys, nine Alabama teenagers who were falsely accused of rape in 1931. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ 2. When Princeton's Nassau Inn refused to rent a room to contralto opera star Marian Anderson because of her skin color, Einstein invited the singer home as his guest. Their friendship lasted from 1937 until his death in 1955, and Anderson stayed with the Einsteins whenever she visited Princeton. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ 3. In 1946, Einstein gave a rare speech at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, a historically black university, where he also accepted an honorary degree. The appearance was significant because Einstein made a habit of turning down all requests to speak at universities. During his speech, he called racism "a disease of white people." ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ 4. Einstein was a friend and supporter of African-American actor and singer Paul Robeson, who was blacklisted because of his civil rights work. The pair worked together in 1946 on an anti-lynching petition campaign. In 1952, when Robeson's career had bottomed out because of the blacklisting, Einstein invited Robeson to Princeton as a rebuke to the performer's public castigation. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ 5. For decades, Einstein offered public encouragement to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and its founder, W. E. B. Du Bois.

America, Donald Trump, and Philadelphia Eagles: No Players Knelt During The National Anthem at Super Bowl Lll @balleralert No Players Knelt During The National Anthem at Super Bowl LII- Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sunday night, the majority of America tuned in for the Super Bowl. As P!nk started to sing her rendition of the national anthem, you may have noticed not one player kneeled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The big game was held in Minneapolis and the opposing teams were the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you watched as the anthem was sung, Patriots stood with their hands over their hearts, as did the Eagles. Back in 2016, ColinKaepernick proudly set off the movement to kneel during the anthem to highlight and protest police brutality, oppression and the social injustices that have most recently plagued our country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, many players have continued Kaepernick's protest, even in his absence. Despite the backlash from NFL sponsors, owners, and Donald Trump, the protests lasted throughout much of the season. However, during the biggest night in sports, players stood for the anthem, putting an end to the longstanding controversy- for now, at least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ironically, before the game though, Trump released a statement calling for America to "proudly stand for the National Anthem." Trump also held a Super Bowl party in his West Palm Beach, Fla. golf course before flying back to Washington D.C. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Eagles beat the Patriots, 41-33.
