Rosa Parks Tweet

December 2, 2013 by  

Rosa Parks Tweet, The Republican National Committee backtracked after a tweet commemorating the anniversary of civil rights icon Rosa Parks’s arrest was met with derision online.

Sunday was the anniversary of Parks’s arrest for refusing to move back on a segregated bus in 1955, and the RNC tweeted a picture of Parks to mark the occasion, with the message, “Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism.”

The tweet set off a firestorm, spawning the hashtag “#RacismEndedWhen” that sarcastically criticized the GOP for suggesting racism had been ended. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee got in on the action, as well.

#RacismEndedWhen Republicans stopped Congress from fixing the Voting Rights Act… cause who needs that anymore?— DCCC (@dccc) December 1, 2013

Later Sunday afternoon, the RNC clarified its earlier tweet, saying it should have used different words.

Previous tweet should have read “Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in fighting to end racism.” — RNC (@GOP) December 1, 2013
