Selma 2015: An Overview

selma-movie“Selma,” the Hollywood fairytale produced by Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt, is now playing in theaters.

I don’t have any plans to see the movie. No work of fiction will ever change my opinion of the real Selma which is based on my impressions of the town from the numerous times I have had to travel through there over the years.

A few years ago, I traveled to Selma to snap some photos of all the ways the city has declined since the SJW victory in the Civil Rights Movement. As Google Maps will show, it’s the same Selma three years later: a poor, grimy city of blighted homes, abandoned and moldering businesses, weeds in the medians, trash and potholes in the streets, billboards about diseases like HIV and syphilis, a rundown downtown business district which looks like it was hit by a Soviet neutron bomb, etc.

Every year the media comes to Selma for celebrities and politicians like Al Sharpton and John Lewis can be seen in photo ops marching across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The reporters don’t stop to investigate and give a full account of what has happened to Selma since the cameras left in 1965. They will just mention in passing that Selma has “suffered from white flight since segregation ended.”

Here’s a brief overview of Selma in 2015:

So, the new and improved Selma in 2015 is plagued by extreme poverty, STDs, high crime, terrible schools, a terrible business climate, high unemployment, low property value, low civic engagement and racial strife by the likes of Faya Rose Toure. Yet the Voting Rights Act was unquestionably a huge success in Selma where blacks now occupy every public office which their numbers allow them to dominate.

If the Mississippi Delta has been “ravaged” by white flight and Selma has “suffered” from white flight, what can we realistically expect to happen when the White population nationwide begins to diminish in absolute numbers? What will become of Selma as it transitions from 80 percent black to 100 percent black? Why has this happened if SJWs are correct and blacks have exactly the same capacities to maintain and advance civilization as Whites?

Maybe former Selma City Councilman Jim Durry has a point: in 2015, Selma is “too black” to be prosperous.
