Few people work harder than Paul Kersey of SBPDL.
So we come to you to ask for help with the spring fundraiser for 2017.
|It's no longer 1965 in Selma; it's 2017 and Selma is an 80 percent black city where every warning about what life would resemble under a black-controlled city government has come true|
The letters are bold and the message is simple; “NO MORE.”
Employees of the Selma Public Works Department were busy assembling 500 bright blue signs bearing the words “NO MORE” Thursday morning. The signs are part of a nonviolence campaign started by Selma Mayor George Evans in response to the Dec. 21 shooting death of Selma High School student Alexis Hunter.
Selma, Alabama was once a beautiful, thriving city.
Now it's one where black leaders, on their yearly pilgrimage to summon mass white guilt via stories about Selma in 1965, look around and realize all the warnings of "racist" white people (what would happen when black people took political and demographic control of the city) came true..[Selma, 50 years after march, remains a city divided, Los Angeles Time, 3-6-15]:
"Some people have a need to not be satisfied," said Jamie Wallace, who in 1965 was an editor at the Selma Times-Journal. He stood on the Edmund Pettus Bridge with civil right marchers when they were attacked on Bloody Sunday. He and other newspaper staffers resisted enormous pressure from advertisers, subscribers and the Selma elite to ignore the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the marchers.
This weekend, he will be presented a Living Legend Award by Selma's mayor, a black man. Things were bad in 1965, Wallace said. They are still bad.
"But I dispute anyone who claims we didn't change anything," he said. "We went from an all-white power structure to all black. That means something."
The Rev. Jesse Jackson sat nearby on a wicker sofa, watching Sanders and her volunteers work. "People coming to Selma in a celebration mood should be in a protest mood," he said. Sanders agreed.
"Sixty percent of Selma's children live in poverty," she told him. Jackson nodded.
"People assume there is a correlation between political power and economic power," he said. But a black power structure — mayor, city council, police force — is not enough.
"You change the political power, and the white business owners just move outside the city. So you have power over a doughnut hole. We need help to climb out of the doughnut hole," he said.
He went on to describe a plan in which the government would intervene to stop people from relocating their businesses. "It's the only way," Jackson said."Adopt a gang member."
"NO MORE" yard signs, a melancholy attempt to convince black people to stop killing one another.
And a call from one black agitator to have the black-controlled city government enact racial socialism to stop privately-held white businesses from relocating their business elsewhere...
This is life in 2017 Selma, Alabama, an 80 percent black city, where every warning of white people long ago about the consequences of western civilization being usurped by Africans in America came true.
