Martin Luther King Day 2015 – 50th Anniversary of Selma March


by Marion Algier –  Ask Marion

Al Sharpton sold out long ago to become the ‘racial grievance industry profiteer’ he is today, shaking down individuals and corporations alike in exchange for his silence or support. But he really outdid himself this month with his latest stunt. Al Sharpton called a special diversity meeting to complain that the movie Selma didn’t get enough nods (Selma received two nominations including Best Picture) and that no African Americans were nominated this year, implying that the academy was too white, too male and too old.  Hello?  Silly me, I thought that the Oscars and the arts were about best performances not quotas and I guess a Best Picture nomination was insulting?  I guess we will be redistributing Oscars soon and calculating their nominations according to quotas if liberals have their way?!?

Sharpton should get the Oscar for being the greatest opportunist.  His move and approach last week would be exactly opposite of what MLK would have wanted or done! Martin Luther King, Jr. promoted unity not division.

On Sunday, the ‘Selma‘ actors lead a re-enactment of the 1965 march on the eve of the 2015 MLK holiday.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
