The race ends, however, with a classic fable plot twist: the tortoise wins because "slow and steady wins the race," showing that "the race is not always to the swift. Indeed, after one hundred years, slow and steady earned African Americans their citizenship rights. In the powerful, frank, and necessary monograph, A More Beautiful and Terrible History: The Uses and Misuses of Civil Rights History , Theoharis argues that the popular narrative of the civil rights movement is a fable, that is, a short tale to teach a moral lesson, "a story not founded on fact," and "a story about supernatural or extraordinary persons or incidents; legend. To combat this popular narrative, Theoharis provides a more complicated view of the movement, one that highlights how a collective of African Americans and their interracial allies fought a long struggle for numerous decades during the twentieth century against systematic and institutionalized racism.

За пределами концентрических окружностей появились две тонкие линии. Они были похожи на сперматозоиды, стремящиеся проникнуть в неподатливую яйцеклетку. - Пора, ребята! - Джабба повернулся к директору.  - Мне необходимо решение.

Сидя в одиночестве и собираясь с мыслями, Беккер посмотрел на кольцо на своем пальце. Зрение его несколько прояснилось, и ему удалось разобрать буквы. Как он и подозревал, надпись была сделана не по-английски. Беккер долго вглядывался в текст и хмурил брови. И ради этого стоило убивать.
