Colored peole werent aloud to voice their opinion. They couldnt talk back to white people. Colored people also had to sit on the back of the bus and if there was no more room they had to give their seat up. Some black people thought that this is life and that they were going to settle with it. They would rather live than be punished. Others had boycotts, sit-ins, marches, non violence, combine schools and refuse their seats on the bus.
