50 Years After The Pettus Bridge Massacre A Hand Full Of Republicans Attend Event

A few white Republicans attended teh 50- year commemoration of the Edmund Pettus Bridge massacre....but not nearly enough to offer support for GOP minority outreach.

'THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT MUST BE RESTORED — Yesterday the GOP snubbed our black citizens by failing to show up forthe historic remembrance in Selma, Alabama. Their conspicuous absence sends a clear message: The GOP doesn't hate black people.They just don't care for them. And that's even worse. They dismiss them as essentially not worth sharing in America's economic wealth and control of our government. Never forget it was the Fascist Five Republicans on the Supreme Court who essentially gutted the Voting Rights Act last summer and negated most of what Selma was all about, the effort to include ALL citizens in our government by removing obstacles to the voting booth. Yesterday, President Obama delivered an impassioned speech challenging ALL of us to ride the backs of our elected representatives until the VRA is returned to its original intent: to allow all Americans the equal opportunity to vote. Contact your representative this week!'
