I've seen a lot news stories today while flipping around regarding Selma, the chief executive, and how Ferguson is/was the same as Selma.    

Tell us about Selma, what happened, what lead up to those events, and how it the same or different than Ferguson.

It is in no way even close to the same thing as Selma.

Protestors in Selma were fighting for voting rights.

Protestors in Feguson are mad that a cop shot a black teen who was trying to kill him in self defense.

ETA:

And I think the march from Selma to Montgomery originated in a shooting of a black activist.  I believe the thought was "take his body to Montgomery"

Ferguson = an embarrassment.  



Selma = a legitimate statement.

When the wheels came off Sharpton's Ferguson clown car ANYTHING needed to be tossed into the shit soup so's he could get paid.  He was among the first to link Selma to Ferguson.



Same old Sharpton Shakedown.  Tell a lie loud and often & get paid.

There were probably 30 to 40 places that Jesse Jackson declared "The Selma of the 90s"

I believe MLK himself would agree with this assessment.

I wouldn't be caught dead in either after dark, so they have that in common.

I watched Obungo's speech from Selma today, and thought to myself, "This is what they marched for?"

Ferguson is a whole lot closer to a lynch mob.  

--Alleged crime  
--accused declared guilty before a trial/investigation based on race
--rioting mobs

Born and raised in Selma. I've traveled a lot in my life and have never experienced a place quite like it. Selma is the U-bend of Alabama.

The truth about Selma is that Democrats were trying to hold down Blacks.  And now Democrats own Blacks again.

I need cites for Democrats trying to hold down the Blacks during that time.

Hard to argue against irrational liberals without facts, and I don't know shit about this moment in history other than firehoses and dogs.
