  •  Sure, she COULD have taken another route. (none)
    Rosa Parks could have just sat in the back of the bus too.

    The whole point of living in a FREE country is that you're able to do things like ride a city bus wherever you like without having to prove who you are.

    •  mmhmm (none)
      I would be the first to agree with you, but the person asked if there were other routes she could have taken, so I answered.

      If you get up to it, and you cannot do it, there you jolly well are.

      I didn't say she should have taken another bus route, I was attempting to assemble what might be relevant facts surrounding this incident.

      If there was no other route, it would make this whole thing even sillier.
