Churchgoers at the Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma, Alabama, turned their backs on presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Sunday as he made remarks on the 55th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday”.
Breitbart reports Congregants of a historically black church in Selma, Alabama, turned their backs on Democrat presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg on Sunday as he addressed them.
The protest, which remained silent and peaceful, took place as Bloomberg was giving a speech on the 55th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” a day when police attacked black citizens during a civil rights march in the town.
Several images shared to social media on Sunday showed both black and white voters standing with their backs turned to Bloomberg in Selma’s Brown Chapel AME Church.
According to those who attended the event, former Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams sat behind Bloomberg during his speech.
