Photos: America's Shameful Past at the Smithsonian American History

 All these were in various spots at the National Museum of American History. These are the seats at the famous Civil Rights sit in in Greensboro NC. Much like the NFL anthem protests today, racist white people hated these protests. While the protesters kind of knew what to expect, nevertheless they were spat on, had things thrown at them, and were also beaten as well. That's heroism and bravery.

In Vietnam, the Vietnam War is sometimes referred to as the American War in the local language. However a longer title is Khang Chien Chong My which means the "Resistance War Against America".
