President Obama proudly announced on Thursday that he will be taking his daughters to the race-baiting capital Selma, Alabama. in order to, “remind them of their obligations” to fight social justice.
“Next week, Michelle and I and the girls will be traveling to Selma to pay tribute, not just as a president or a first lady or as African-Americans, but as Americans for those who changed the course of history at the Independence Bridge,” Mr. Obama said, according to CBS News.
“I know that when I take Malia and Sasha down with Michelle next week down to Selma, part of what I’m hoping to do is to remind them of their own obligations,” he added. “Because there are going to be marches for them to march and struggles for them to fight, and if we’ve done our job then that next generation is going to be picking up the torch as well.”
Obama’s vacation plan is a thinly veiled attempt to endear himself to race-baiters, who have rediscovered their fascination with the Alabama city since the movie Selma was released earlier this year. Never one to miss out on the “hip” new trends, Obama couldn’t help but take his family to Selma as well.
