No one wants to admit it's no longer 1965 anymore in Selma, Alabama... the New York Times admitted as much in 1994:

The racial violence of the past is largely gone, replaced by a flood of drug-related, black-on-black crime that dwarfs the violence of Jim Crow.In 1990, when black leaders, white elected federal/state officials, and celebrities started coming to Selma in March to reenact the 1965 march (Kabuki Theater personified), the New York Times noted how the city was transitioning to black rule:
The Mayor, who still keeps a Confederate flag in his office, points out that 35 percent of the police force is black, as against zero in 1965. Blacks make up 25 percent of the firefighters and more than 90 percent of the sanitation workers. He cites similar statistics among other municipal employees, City Council members and teachers, and he minimizes the current dispute over the decision by the white-majority school board not to renew the contract of the city's first black Superintendent.
The Mayor considers the new wave of black activists impossible to please, insufficiently appreciative of the gains won by the previous generation. ''But,'' he conceded, in the philosophical tone he exuded in network interviews last week, ''the blacks are now doing the same thing we did 25 years ago. We hollered for 'segregation,' and played on the white people's fear of integration - and this got us elected. Now, 25 years later, the black elected officials, and black leaders not elected, are hollering 'white racism,' and 'de facto segregation' and 'economic oppression' to get elected, and they're doing a good job.''Hilarious, because in 1984, the New York Times noted how black people were going to weaponize democracy and try and take over the city from whites:
A deep- voiced refrain of ''Freedom Now! Freedom Now!'' rose in a crescendo from Ward Chapel Church Sunday night, seeming to ripple the delicate pink flowers of the mimosa trees outside.
Frederick D. Reese, a battle-scarred veteran of the civil rights movement here, pounded the pulpit and said: ''There are rumors that when I am elected Mayor I am going to fire all the white folks. I am not going to do that. Now some white folks have to go. We are going to look at ability to do the job. What we need is justice.''The audience cheered lustily in agreement.In 2000, at the dawn of the new century, Selma finally elected a black mayor.
For the outside world, Selma must always be 1965, so as to stoke as much white guilt as possible, simultaneously equating any white person who dares criticize America's domestic policy of bettering black people with white taxpayer money (sacrificing advancing western civilization in the process) as the moral equivalent of the white cops who beat the civil rights marchers.
Which is why John Lewis' war with Donald Trump represents the potential end of what has been dubbed by this writer as Black-Run America (BRA). [Rep. Lewis: I would not invite Trump to Selma, AOL.com, 1-15-17]:
Well, well, well... Mr. Lewis, do you really want to challenge Donald Trump to take a look at Selma in 2017 and learn something?
It's no longer 1965 there, Mr. Lewis. [THE TRUTH ABOUT SELMA: Trump Right, “Civil Rights Icon” Lewis Wrong—It’s Now A Hell Hole, VDare.com, by Paul Kersey, 1-15-17]:
In what I have called Black-Run America, groveling will never do whites any good. The unifying theme of our political class, entertainment industry and academia: exploiting what happened in 1965 Selma as the permanent justification for imposing greater and greater anti-white measures as law.
But it’s all a lie, as you’ll see in The Truth About Selma: without “law and order” – the bedrock of any civilization – you get the community found in 2017 Selma, an 80 percent black city whose black leadership pleads with citizens to place yard signs reading “No More.”
Trump made it clear he is a “law and order” man. And, incredibly, he now seems to have shown, with just a few Tweets, that he isn’t planning on shadowboxing with the Left at all.We near the dawn of a new era...
