What’s a little billboard between friends, after all? On one side, Selma welcomes the First Family to Selma, paid for by the Selma Post-Herald. The other side commemorates the KKK and Nathan Bedford Forrest with the words “Keep the skeer on them.” Be afraid! Raw Story: The billboard was erected by the friends of Forrest, Inc.,…

I wonder if it would be know as a terrible tragedy if the sign got burned up or poetic justice? Not condoning burning it but just thinking which it would be considered? As a true veteran I advocate for peace for that is my ultimate goal, but…???

According to the latest reports, about 2 dozen Congressional Republicans were in attendance, including majority leader Kevin McCarthy. Former President George W. Bush also attended. Good on them. Gov. Robert Bentley also attended and spoke at the event.
Conspicuous by their absence was every contender for the 2016 GOP nomination. Wonder if any of them will be criticized like the President was for not attending the Paris unity march. Doubt it….
Oh well, chalk up another 90% win in the black community for whomever the Democratic nominee will be.

Someone should put up a billboard beside it with a picture of white hooded KKK and the words “EVIL COWARDS “.

I look forward to Sean Hannity condemning this sort of act in a post-racial America.

As is the case with prominently displaying the Confederate flag, this is just another example of Southern white folks waxing nostalgic and yearning for a return to a bygone (pre-Emancipation Proclamation) era.

A despicable act from a diseased lunatic, and when called to account the response is ” Oh my, what a coincidence ”. Yeah….right, an awful lot of coincidence it seems. Must be raining ”coincidence” there.

Hey Ms. Goodwin, you are correct that there is nothing in the Constitution to require people to not be offended.
However, if you read the Declaration of Independence, the first f*cking sentence says that “all men are created equal”.
A real American would find a better way of welcoming visitors to their town than celebrating a man who emphatically did not believe in the concept of all being equal.
