Friday’s answers

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.?

2. Who wrote To Kill A Mocking Bird?

3. It’s intolerant in French, bacchettone in Italy, intolerante in Spanish and upoko mārō in Maori, what is it in English (hint, the answer is a noun not an adjective).

4. Why was Rosa Parks arrested in 1955?

5. Is there a place for positive discrimination?

Points for answers:

Will got four,  a nearly for #3 and a bonus for making a valid point.

Andrei wins a virtual chocolate cake with a clean sweep.

Grant got four (and intolerant was too easy which is why I noted I was looking for a noun).

Answers follow the break:

1. Martin Niemöller.

2. Harper Lee.

3. Bigot.

4. She refused to surrender her seat on a bus to a white person.

5.

    Hi,
    I thought Rosa Parks was more it was the White persons’ part of the bus rather than anyone else wanting the seat?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Parks:”On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake’s order to give up her seat in the colored section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled.”
