On all of the days for The Truth About Selma to come out (scheduled it for January 14, 2017 back in late November of 2016), it happens to be the day President-elect Donald Trump throws down the gauntlet and goes after John Lewis.
Remember, John Lewis' march in Selma has provided the fuel to power the anti-white agenda in America for the last fifty years, with any white person who dares question are nations trajectory the moral equivalent of the white police officers who dared confront him and his fellow blacks on Edmund Pettus Bridge back in 1965.
Which is why we bring up this...[Dedication of new downtown mural honoring John Lewis, civil rights hero, Atlanta Magazine, 8-27-2012]:
On this sunny morning at the corner of Auburn Avenue and Jesse Hill Jr. Drive, Lewis was serenaded by kids from the Renaissance Learning Center, praised by Central Atlanta Progress chief A.J. Robinson, and lauded by city councilman Kwanza Hall: “This mural honors not only one of Atlanta’s wonderful citizens but one of the nation’s great leaders.” There was a surprise appearance by actress Lynn Whitfield (Madea’s Family Reunion), who gushed, “Thank you for being a hero all of my life,” and another by former mayor Bill Campbell, who stood at the back of the crowd with his wife Sharon and posed for photographers.

John Lewis, who grew up on a sharecropper’s farm in Troy, Alabama, said that the full implication of the mural struck him when he caught a glimpse of it while driving by on the Connector. “Growing up in a little town in southeast Alabama, I never would have dreamed that there would be a mural of me on the side of a building in Atlanta that is so big it could be seen from the highway,” he said.
After the ceremony was concluded, Lewis joined muralist Sean Schwab painting the final touch on the mural—the dot over the “I” in his last name. Schwab, member of the Loss Prevention art collective, said he was “honored” to work on the tribute to the local hero. “There are murals all over town that are just art for art’s sake. I wanted to do something with meaning.”

And that raised one nagging question: Why the asterisk next to the word “hero”?“It’s really just a design element,” said Schwab.
So, no footnote or commentary denoted? “No,” he insisted. Anyone who thinks so is just being pedantic about punctuation.What does this "Hero*" mural image in the Atlanta skyline seem to remind you of?
Oh, that's right... The Walking Dead.
Donald Trump is on the verge of changing everything.
