So what are your thoughts? This doesn't surprise me at all. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2015/03/06/no-republican-leaders-are-going-to-selma-this-weekend-thats-a-dumb-move/ http://www.cbsnews.com/news/republican-leaders-skip-selma-events/ http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/few-gop-no-leaders-head-selma Scores of U.S. lawmakers are converging on tiny Selma, Alabama, for a large commemoration of a civil rights anniversary. But their ranks don’t include a single member of House Republican leadership — a point that isn’t lost on congressional black leaders. Two possible reasons are that they are either genuinely uninterested in the anniversary, despite the opportunity to publicly show their leadership and upright “Christian” moral values, or they feel that attending would not sit well to the Republican "base" that has been in no mood to hear about racism, or voting rights, or civil rights, or why legislative victories won by the marchers and organizers of 50 years ago ought to be still protected today. This should have been an easy one. That it wasn't speaks volumes.
