GOP Says Rosa Parks Ended Racism - Oh Wait

The Republican National Committee (RNC) led by the intrepid Reince Priebus, got into a bit of trouble with the wording of a tweet last week on the 58th Anniversary of civil rights legend Rosa Parks' refusal to give up her seat to a white person on a bus in Montgomery, AL. They declared she had "ended racism" on that day, but many on Twitter begged to differ especially because of all the GOP Confederate Flag-waving lately. The tweet set off what NPR called a "snark avalanche."

They tried to take it back in another tweet, but it was too late! :)
