Honoring the Constitution on the Anniversary of its final ratification: Keep the skeer on them!

Nathan Bedford Forrest billboard (NYDN)

Commemorating the KKK and Nathan Bedford Forrest with the words “Keep the skeer on them.” Be afraid!

“That billboard was put there with positive intent to ask people who come to Selma to explore and enjoy our 19th century history. Does it say anything in the Constitution where a certain faction of people cannot be offended? I’m offended by all these people walking around with their pants hanging around their knees.”   Spokeswoman Patricia Goodwin explainied why a billboard was erected adjacent to the Edmund Pettus Bridge  by the friends of Forrest, Inc. to honor the founder of the KKK during the ceremonies last March for the 50th anniversary of Dr, King leading marchers across that bridge.

The other side of the billboard,, paid for by the Selma Post-Herald, welcomed the President, Mrs. Obama and their two daughters to Selma.
