White House Posts Pic Of Obama On Rosa Parks Bus After Refusing To Sign Anti-LGBT Discrimination EO

Less than a week after President Obama refused to sign an Executive Order that would advanced  stopped LGBT discrimination by companies that hold federal contracts, the White House tweeted this photo of President Obama sitting in the iconic bus where Rosa Parks made her civil rights stand in 1955.

The Executive Order that Obama refused to sign mirrored the one President Lyndon Johnson signed in 1965 to advance black civil rights.

Maybe someone should photo shop a gay man, a lesbian, a bisexual, and trangender person  behind him on the back bench of the bus and make a real statement.
