Selma and Tim Scott

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., an honorary co-chairman of the Selma trip and the only African-American Republican in the Senate, said voting rights and the commemoration of Selma should be “de-coupled.”
“The issue of voting rights legislation and the issue of Selma, we ought to have an experience that brings people together and not make it into a political conversation,” Scott said.

So in other words "Stop making civil rights commemorations about civil rights!  This is supposed to be an empty, meaningless photo-op for me."
