…There is another darker side of the legacy of John Lewis. Selma and the surrounding region never really ceased to be a place where people live and work after 1965. It just ceased to matter in anything but the symbolic sense to the elite media. After John Lewis left town, the cameras left, the marching stopped and civil rights legislation was signed into law, the people who lived in Selma and the Alabama Black Belt had to go on living under the new order.

Soft lumpen proles can’t handle reality and run away from it no matter what it takes.
We’re all in this together? Go fuck yourself.
The amount of denial I hear is staggering. Folks cannot come to grips with what is happening in front of them and they find places to mentally hide out.
And the party hasn’t even started yet, this is barely an intro.

My grandfather said of him “That’s one smart nigger”.
I tend to agree with Papa.
I got a kick out of a WaPo article today, promoting the idea of renaming the Edmund Pettus bridge after John Lewis. The article pointed out that Pettus was a confederate general and KKK Grand Dragon.
