Email from the Mississippi Democratic Party:

Governor Phil Bryant invited the President to attend ceremonies for the opening of our state History and Civil Rights Museums. This invitation distracts attention from what should be a special day for dedicated people like Governor William Winter, Congressman John Lewis, Myrlie Evers-Williams, and the amazing struggles and achievements that bring these museums the attention they deserve.

For many of us, the statements and behavior of the President stand in such stark contrast from what we want this event to represent. We can do better!

When scores of people who expected to celebrate this occasion are now making plans for protest, it's abundantly clear this invitation tamped down the excited expectations of many. We can and must do better to not allow the progress showcased in these landmarks to be trampled on by anyone seeking cheap political points.
