(Selma, AL) - Several Caucasian United States Postal Service employees have been fired after allegedly tampering with mail intended to be delivered to the homes of over 800 local African American residents.
The Selman Equal Rights Committee met late Tuesday evening to discuss whether or not blacklisting these employees from the community would be neccesary.
"These employees have certainly left a black mark on the community and this city has suffered enough racial persecution to last it quite awhile," said the Rev. Willy Black, pastor of Selma First National Baptist Church and Trust and chairman of the Selman Equal Right Committee.
Formal hearings are scheduled for February 1st, coincidentally, the first day of Black History Month.
