Barack Obama might want to have a talk with @BarackObama, the OFA-run Twitter account that bears his name. It’s an honorable sentiment, but the men and women who marched on Bloody Sunday did so in 1965, not 1955.
@BarackObama do you mean 1965??

@BarackObama You are 10 years off. Bloody Sunday was in 1965.

@barackobama Who am I to correct you Mr. President but I think the correct year of Bloody Sunday is 1965…

That still doesn’t line up with candidate Barack Obama’s claim that the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery march inspired his parents to marry and have a child (who was born in 1961 — four years before the march).
