Anti-quarantine protesters, who miss their restaurants and barbers, are once again being compared to a woman who stood up against 400 years of oppression.  

Houston city councilman Michael Kubosh is the latest to put the protesters on the same level as Rosa Parks. Kubosh made the comparison when he praised the owner of a Texas bar and grill for defying the state's stay-at-home order and reopening the business. 

"Sometimes, civil disobedience is required to move things forward," the council member told KPRC2. "That's why we remember Rosa Parks."

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Houston NAACP spoke out against the councilman's statement, calling it insensitive and inflammatory.

"I’m not saying that white Americans don’t have the right to practice civil disobedience, every American has that right; but not the right to compare a loss of some freedom of movement for a month or two or even six months for the purpose of saving human lives to that of the African Americans fight for equality that has lasted for almost 400 years," the statement read.

The organization added that Kubosh's statements "have deeply grieved the hearts and offended many African Americans" and serve as "another example of white America’s misunderstanding of its own racist policies and how these policies have had a negative affect on a large segment of American society." 

Stephen Moore, a member of the White House council to reopen the country, also raised eyebrows earlier this month when he said stay-at-home protesters are "the modern-day Rosa Parks," The Washington Post reported

“I call these people the modern-day Rosa Parks — they are protesting against injustice and a loss of liberties,” the conservative economist told The Washington Post.

President Donald Trump has continued to show his support for the protesters. 

“LIBERATE MICHIGAN! LIBERATE MINNESOTA,” the president wrote in a series of tweets. “LIBERATE VIRGINIA, and save your great 2nd Amendment. It is under siege!”

The NAACP delivered a history lesson to Kubosh in its statement, saying "Rosa Parks has a special place in the heart of African Americans because her refusal to stand helped lead to the freedoms we had been fighting for almost 400 years."

"Rosa Parks was arrested because she refused to give up her seat in the colored section of a bus to a white passenger after the white only section was filled," the organization stated. "Ms. Parks' arrest led to a more than year-long boycott by African Americans of the Montgomery bus system. Rosa Parks is often called the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement, because the person selected to lead the Montgomery Bus Boycott was Dr. Martin Luther, Jr."
