State of things in Selma

To the Editor:

So let me see if I have this right … Selma has plenty of jobs,no crime to speak of, absolutely no illegal drug problem, and our roads are in great shape?

Must be true since the only thing our state senator is worried about (besides his big fat raise he voted himself), is some bill wanting to be apologized to for slavery.

I may be wrong,but I really don’t believe that he was ever a slave.

I mean with college,Harvard Law School, being a partner in a law firm and being a state senator, forget about slavery … he doesn’t even know what struggling to make ends meet feels like.

Wondering if you can pay the power bill and put gas in your vehicle is not a lot of fun.

As far as slavery, while I and most people agree it was wrong, it was a long, long time ago and I’m pretty sure I’ve never had one.

But I do want to thank Sen. Sanders for one thing … he says the word “boy” is a slave term.

I get called “boy” at least once a day by somebody, so I guess I’m a slave and in turn I want to be included in the class action law suit that WILL be filed.

I would also like food stamps, welfare and a low rent house!

Enough is enough! When are the people in this area going to wise up and vote him out of office.

Nearly all the state money he gets for Selma goes to those things in Selma he and his wife have their fingers in.

I, for one, am FED UP.
