Rosa Parks

A misplaced or omitted word, can ruin a tweet.  The RNC’s GOP social media team learned this the hard way over the weekend.  What started out as a tweet, celebrating Rosa Parks, end up creating the #racismendedwhen hashtag.

Sunday evening the GOP twitter account tweeted a photo of Rose Parks that stated, “Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism”.

Ending racism?

Well, soon after that tweet was posted, they realized their “oops”, and corrected their mistake:

But it was a little too late. The hashtag took on a life of its own.




I’m sure the person behind the original GOP tweet, will never have an “oops” moment again.

  • The tweet should really read:

    “Today [COMMA] we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in fight to end racism.”

    Republicans don’t know about commas?! Lol.

    There’s no such thing as a deleted tweet. A tweet lives forever. The GOP has learned its lesson.

    You are correct, and Oreo cookies were also the beginning of reverse discrimination. How did it start that all that chocolate bookends the cream, and Fox news said Oreo cookies are eaten during Black History Month. Shows we have Overcome, so we can stop complaining about how good we got it here.
