UPDATE – Or how to make Selma-Montgomery a footnote in history.
President Barack Obama gave us African American preacher again this week in the civil rights cradle of Selma, Alabama. And predictably included himself in the history of the civial rights movement.
“We’re the slaves who built the White House and the economy of the South. (Applause.) We’re the ranch hands and cowboys who opened up the West, and countless laborers who laid rail, and raised skyscrapers, and organized for workers’ rights…
…long after Kunta Kinte Obama was brought to our shores in belly of a slave ship…
We’re the gay Americans whose blood ran in the streets of San Francisco and New York, just as blood ran down this bridge. (Applause.)… [more]
… Did we mention Bayard Rustin Obama? This was way before Alex Haley Obama wrote the bittersweet history of the Obama’s in America.
The tendency for some of you might be to suggest that President Obama was doing a little opportunistic race and LGBT hustling in Selma this week.
Shame on you.
Barack selflessly left out the painful personal stories of how he was turned away from lunch counters, made to use segregated restrooms, and denied a bed in countless hotels…
Is anything not about Barack Obama? Anything?
