John Lewis to miss opening of civil rights museum
Lewis is a petty, sour, divisive, race-baiting idiot.

quote:

U.S. Rep John Lewis says he won't speak at the opening of Mississippi civil rights and history museums, calling it intolerable that President Donald Trump will attend. Lewis made the announcement Thursday. The Georgia Democrat and civil rights icon helped organize the 1964 Freedom Summer targeting segregation in Mississippi.

quote:

The Saturday ceremony marks Mississippi's bicentennial of admission into the union. But what was intended as a moment of racial unity and atonement in the state with the largest share of African-Americans is descending into racial and partisan strife after Republican Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant invited fellow Republican Trump to attend. The NAACP has said Trump should cancel his planned appearance because of his divisive record on civil rights issues.
quote:

Several prominent Mississippi Democrats say they won't attend. Some plan protests.

Wait.....so telling someone they can't attend an event because of their racial orientation or upbringing is a shining example of inclusion and an effort to lessen the racial divide?

Well, that's unfortunate. I was hoping that the link might elaborate on this...

Mississippi republicans need to come home and help us defend Texas.

Why do Democrats hate honoring civil rights leaders?

I love how leftists think that Lewis is beyond reproach because of his involvement in the civil rights era.

I still haven't seen this "record " brought to light. They keep talking about it but offer no examples.

It's amazing that there are people this stupid in the highest levels of America's government. John Lewis is a racist piece of shite and this nation will be better off when he's gone.

DNC Masa say don't go, so he don't go.


It's funny how Trump suddenly became a racist when he put an R beside his name.

No.
But it is sad he's finishing his career with repeated instances of racial confabulations.
His legacy is bigger than that.

Good opportunity to bridge the gap and for Lewis to be a leader in racial relations.
