Today in Selma, Alabama many people gather to commemorate the march are greeted with a billboard that is causing quite a stir on the anniversary
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the violent marches in Selma, Alabama. As visitors drive past a billboard, they will see something that will not only bring back memories, but anger. A confederate group called Friends of Forrest, felt that they wanted to honor the KKK founder Nathan Bedford Forrest by putting up a billboard not too far from the very bridge where the protests took place 50 years ago. The picture shows Forrest on a horse with,
Keep the skeer on ‘em”
On the back of the billboard, Selma Post Herald sends a welcome message to President Barack Obama.
Selmapostherald.com Welcomes President Barack Obama and you to Selma.”
Is this a coincidence, or some people subliminally trying to scare away visitors from Selma?
