A Facebook friend posted a photo (see below) showing women protesting the immigrant children at the border in Texas.

It reminded me of another famous photo of a fifteen-year-old girl named Hazel Bryan spewing racial epithets at Elizabeth Eckford, who was one of nine children trying to enter school in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957.

I have always called that photograph "THE FACE OF HATE" because my friend Cammy used that photo to illustrate her Senior Paper about the Civil Rights struggle.

With these hate-filled people, I see a NEW face of hate. The more things change, the more they stay the same!

CLICK HERE to see my BLOG article ELIZABETH AND HAZEL which features a marvelous book by David Margolick which details what became of the the lives of those two teenage girls.
