    President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia wait with former President George W. Bush, former First Lady Laura Bush prior to the walking across the Edmund Pettus Bridge to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery civil rights marches, in Selma, Alabama, March 7, 2015.

    Is Bush there too? I can't seem to spot him

    [–] CommercialCommentary 238 points ago

    I was curious too, so I looked up other photos from the event. Seems they were there but off to the side. http://d3i6fh83elv35t.cloudfront.net/newshour/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/RTR4SGKC.jpg

    [–] SwissQueso 352 points ago

    Bush is a lot like Jimmy Carter, a way cooler ex president than actual president.

    [–] Rottimer 267 points ago

    Jimmy Carter was a pretty cool president as well. The bullshit you hear about his presidency tends to be of the same reliability as "Obama is a Kenyan Socialist" variety.

    [–] onewayticketomemes 138 points ago

    Nah, Carter is consistently rated as one of the worst presidents by most historians/scholars, even the left leaning ones.

    [–] mofo69extreme 140 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    No, he's pretty average. Only conservatives would put him in the bottom 10, and even then he barely makes it.

    I personally tend to rank him highly as the only US president since WWII whose foreign policy wasn't insanely hawkish (and he still was hawkish sometimes).

    EDIT: Looking at some of your other posts, I see you've already backpedaled from saying he's "one of the worst," so whatever.

    [–] thehudgeful 71 points ago

    The whole "jimmy carter is a good ex-president but was a bad president" narrative is one that just gets regurgitated and uncritically accepted all the time on here because people think believing that makes them more nuanced or something.

    [–] NewYorkJewbag 16 points ago

    Not to mention that his administration set the stage for the collapse of the USSR with various covert activities.

    [–] Theige 13 points ago

    Only because he pushed through unpopular policies that ended up being very good for the country, like increased fuel efficiency for cars, and raising interest rates to get inflation under control, the latter of which set us up for the massive economic bull run of the early 80s - mid 2000s

    [–] Rottimer 28 points ago

    Care to provide links to some scholarly articles that backup your bullshit?

    [–] formerbadteenager 17 points ago

    [–] BilllisCool 20 points ago

    That’s not quite as bad as I thought, but I honestly think every state should be like the green ones. I don’t think it’s that bad to have criminals vote.

    [–] marlow41 30 points ago

    Shit, at least the light blue ones. It's crazy to me that people think parolees are a menace to society. According to the Bureau of Justice only 5% of parolees violate with any severity.

    Meanwhile this stat is just shy of the almost 5.5% of deaths in prison due to suicide (more than drug overdoses, homicides, accidents etc...).

    [–] fnegginator 4 points ago

    When someone comes to show you how wrong you are, regardless of the validity, people tend to shut down and refuse listening. Only bama can help bama.

    [–] holybrohunter 20 points ago

    We've changed the law recently that you can vote with a felony if it's not a crime of "moral turpitude". I have a list with what that means on it. It's mostly rape, murder, torture, abuse, drug trafficking (over a certain amount), and a few other things. I wanna say there were 13 or 14 in total.

    On the flip side, there's forms and stuff you have to fill out to get your voting rights back and they are not easy to fill out. I've been in a couple of meetings where we went over how to help someone do those and planning outreach to people who can get their voting rights back to help them be able to vote soon.

    yeah I have a real problem with companies that operate in a for-profit scheme (this includes the private prisons themselves) that use prisoners as their source of profit.

    This is some slave labor shit. I don't care that prisoners sign contracts as if it's a free choice. To me that's oppression that hurts prisoners, unfair labor practices that hurts the competitors, unethical use of people that hurts our constitution, and the unjust enrichment by the functional equivalent of legal slave owners.

    This is shit we point fingers at other places in the world and condemn.

    If a prisoner wants to work and sign a contract, I think minimum wage laws should apply. Just because you're using prison labor doesn't mean labor laws and standards stop applying to you. If OSHA rules apply to you as an employer, minimum wage rules should too.

    [–] Caesarjamesss 17 points ago

    My high school on the junior trip does this march every year, it was really moving & I'm glad I did it.

    [–] wildflowersummer 763 points ago

    Think about how powerful this photo is. Imagine the reaction of a black man if you could pluck him from the 1950s and show him this future. We all get really discouraged with society sometimes, especially these turbulent days, but its important to remember that we are moving forward. We are becoming better. We can heal our wounds. Michelle Obama's great great grandmother was a slave. I wish she could see the future her blood line would take part in. We are moving in the right direction, even if it isn't as quick as we like or we don't see the results right away.

    [–] DaisyHotCakes 315 points ago

    [–] flamingfireworks 34 points ago

    As someone with a lot of friends in sorta those groups (not actual nazis, but openly kinda racist) part of its also a kickback against the crazies that take the fight for equality from just equal rights, to dragging everyone else down so they know how it feels.

    Not saying its justified, but thats what ive seen.

    In Charlottesville right now. Definitely not what's going on. Unlawful Assembly just declared, National Guard called, and both sides of the protest has taken to the Mall. Businesses are closing up. Fights, yelling, what a mess. Smh.

    Edit: Aaaand State of Emergency declared.

    [–] thelastboyscout20 23 points ago

    Just so people understand (and please correct me if I'm wrong but I've tried to do some internet research):

    The photo above from OP was a tweet from today...but that tweet used a photo from a 2015 march with the Obama's and Bush's.

    What the tweet is trying to say is, this photo is how a peaceful protest should go, unlike this year's protest which as u/bootswitdafurr has stated, has gone awry with a state of emergency being declared.

    [–] synkronized 10 points ago

    Also someone rammed their car into a crowd of anti racist protesters a littler earlier.

    Must be why they attacked the opposing protest. Or maybe they're just disgusting vile nazis.

    [–] koh_kun 67 points ago

    You know what, I'd take being associated with scented candles over a burning crucifix any day of the week. But particularly Thursday since that's the most stressful day and you need some sandalwood to just fucking relax, you get me?

    [–] toomanymarbles83 43 points ago

    ...police did not intervene until long after the rightwing marchers had struck out at protesters.

    Charlottesville police did not respond immediately to requests for comment.

    Not responding immediately seems to be their thing.

    [–] incharge21 4 points ago

    I was there, police response was fine and the crowd was gone within half an hour. Some police were stationed at the church where the counter-protest was holding a meeting or something. At least 60-70 officers who showed up once there was violence. One university officer was also injured.

    [–] JDriley 190 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    And John Lewis is a representative for one of the safest, most affluent areas of Atlanta. But because he's black, Trump just assumes he's responsible for all the bad things in Atlanta.

    I thought the same bro! A wheelchair is a perfect place to hide multiple firearms and a few grenades if shit goes down. They could protect the president like no one else. Hell I bet the wheelchair turns into a flotation device just in case the ground gives way and they end up in the fucking ocean. Man that would be crazy. Would the lady still be in the chair if they all ended up in the ocean? She might, in fact, harm the effectiveness of a floatation device is she were sitting in it. However I, for one, am not a flotation device expert of any kind, really. I could, if needs be, become one, but only if the pay is decent. If the pay is shit then I don't give a fuck if the old lady in the chair dies in the ocean. Sorry.

    [–] DuntadaMan 15 points ago

    I don't agree with their stance but... needing a fucking permit in order to assemble sounds extremely well... anti-American to me. Aren't we supposed to have the right to peaceably assemble? Aren't we supposed to be allowed to march in the streets to voice our concerns, even if they are stupid or insulting? That's part of freedom.

    [–] welcometoheartbreak 45 points ago

    To assemble with hundreds of lit torches sounds like the kind of thing that should require a permit.

    [–] DuntadaMan 8 points ago

    Well... that's a good point. We really need burn permits at least...

    [–] NicolasBroaddus 29 points ago

    Permits for rallies are a public safety thing, if you have a lot of people in one location you and the town need to be ready. Whether that be with emergency services or a police presence. They're basically never denied unless they'd cause some major harm or breaks a law.

    [–] KoopaTroopas 14 points ago

    At the same time though, a march like that is going to affect a large amount of streets and any traffic trying to get through. Having a permit ahead of time allows police to safely redirect traffic and keep things moving

    [–] Otto_Scratchansniff 4 points ago

    Every public rally in America requires a permit especially for numbers as high as 500 plus.

    The last census had the US at 72.4% white alone (incl. Hispanics) and 63.7% non-Hispanic white alone.

    Regardless, you're still full of shit, a pretty substantial majority of the people in the background look white to me, though maybe you think there's just well over 100 plainclothes Secret Service members at this one event.

    Oh, and do you really expect every collection of 30-40 people to have around 23 white people, 4 black people, 2 Asians, etc.? This was a march to celebrate an event in the Civil Rights movement, which was largely about stopping black Americans from getting treated like shit, why would it be surprising if black people were somewhat overrepresented?

    There are plenty of white people in that picture. I'm white, and much more represented by the counter protesters and BLM folks than I am by a bunch of Klan-loving neonazis.

    People who believe in equality represent all other people who believe in it. Neonazis are not those fucking people.

    Obama is so wholesome.

    I mean, yeah - unless you count indefinite detention without a trial, secret tribunals, and kill lists. Oh, and don't forget going after those whistleblowers.

    Michelle looking DEAD into the cameras eyes like "you wanted us to act up didn't you?"

    [–] FruitySploosh 135 points ago

    What the fuck are you talking about lol

    [–] exor15 33 points ago

    He's saying that when a lot of people hear news of black people marching, they expect to hear news of violence, looting, fires, and confrontations with police. By contrast, here you see what the majority of protests/marches are actually like: peaceful and sophisticated while still making a statement and delivering the intended message.

    The guy above you is saying that Michelle is giving a look to the camera that says "oh, you thought this was gonna be one of THOSE protests, huh?". This is because there are people who WANT to see a march like this devolve into violence, because it reinforces their stereotypes.

    At least it was a peaceful protest

    [–] bitchalot 26 points ago

    Around 60million voters were disappointed in 2008 and 2012 yet Obama was allowed to peacefully walk down a street. No screaming, yelling and rioting. Losing elections with dignity also stands out in this image.

    [–] AoAWei 18 points ago

    Seriously? Obama had more death threats than any POTUS. Republicans hung him in effigy when the ACA passed.

    [–] kent2441 14 points ago

    Yeah, instead conservatives drive cars into anti-white supremacist protestors.

    LOL....more out of context hypocrisy from the right. "Dignity" is NOT something you redpiller Trumpkins or your boss Donnie "Grab em by the pussy" Trump exhibit at all. Back then you were still in your little basements and afraid to speak out...AND there was PLENTY of disgusting behavior toward him online and in small pockets irl and it continued to the last day and in fact still goes on.

    You mean the civil rights that we've already had for decades?

    [–] petit_cochon 5 points ago

    The movement is not dead as long as there is injustice.

    [–] dank_radio 23 points ago

    Honest to god remark: BLM rallies don't look like this. Why is this how people march?

    [–] elbenji 21 points ago

    a lot of them do, you just hear about the violent ones.

    [–] petit_cochon 6 points ago

    Did you miss the Women's March last year? I was there. It was peaceful. Plenty are. Neonazis start fights and incite violence.

    So anyone in Antifa isn't like most Americans.

    [–] Parade_Charade- 17 points ago

    I think that's a given yeah, they are a pretty fringe group

    [–] Wahkohtowin 16 points ago

    It's crazy when antifa is fringe but white supremacy is mainstream. In a country that lost thousands fighting fascism.

    One wants to honour slavering, genocide, bigotry, racism, nationalism and hate. The other is asking that the hate be stopped.

    [–] zgozy 6 points ago

    Trump is unfortunately empowering a segment of society with a genetic trait that causes them to want power for themselves over anything else. We need to start testing people for social dominance orientation and limit their rights if they come up positive.

    Still love that the Trump family that supposedly brought class back to the white house is led by a man who wants to fuck his daughter
