She refused to march with Whitey…

Down in Selma, Alabama, a prominent civil rights leader refused to march across the historic bridge because President George W. Bush was also marching.

Diane Nash, who was described as one of MLK’s “lieutenant” in the Civil Rights movement, said she would not march because Bush represented violence – something that is anathema to the non-violent movement.

Unlike other “leaders,” Nash is a genuine civil rights hero. She was one of the architects of the Selma march and the concept of combating institutional racism in the 50s and 60s with non-violent protest.

“I refused to march because George Bush marched,” Nash told News One Now’s Roland Martin on Saturday. Bush and wife Laura were in attendance at the event where President Obama also offered a stirring speech.

Nash said she made the decision not to march across the Edmund Pettus bridge “when it was apparent that [Bush] was going to be part of it.”

“I think the Selma movement was about non-violence and peace and democracy,” Nash told Martin. “And George Bush stands for just the opposite, for violence and war and stolen elections.”

So who’s the racist now? For God’s sake these people are so hypocritical it actually hurts my brain. And for the record, race relations under Obama are the worst they’ve been in decades. What a fricking joke…
