Politics of the Selma anniversary


John King, Olivier Knox and Margaret Talev on race relations in the U.S. ahead of the Selma anniversary and the event’s lack of Republican representation.


  1. Can we as the people, as individuals, and as americans blame anyone for the content of our own thought patterns? If we can, my beautiful american people, then we have already lost what makes us free. Our free will, our peace of mind, and our ability to call out mistakes made by individuals or governments is what makes us a free people. We can not blame the actions of a few people, whether government or private, on the masses of any race. Emancipate yourselves from the social engineered racial standard, free yourselves from these stereotypical falacies. See you all out there.

  2. Multi-culturalism experiments are laughably failing wherever they're attempted. The USA's case is worsened by its history of slavery. For a country who's so well-versed in divorce, it's ridiculous that no leader has promoted the opening of a dialog addressing the possibility that separate societies would serve all much better.
    Most agree the India/Pakistan partition was ultimately for the best. Done with careful deliberation, ours can be much less messy.

  3. The only people saying race relations have gotten worst are Republicans and Conservatives. They're unable to reconcile their political differences and their racial biases. Obama is BLACK. Deal with it. The way he deals with race is going to be different. You don't want him to speak on certain things. That's your problem.
