Don't Take Us Back To Corporate
Warn Justice: No to corporate racism
I cannot believe that there is a strong effort out there in 'La La Land' to condone corporate racism. We humans should be advancing our enlightened collective minds not sending it back to the dark ages.
What is wrong with some people?
Imagine yourself a hard working, play by the rules person who happens to be of dark pigmentation. Ok, now imagine you are driving on a highway and you realize you need to stop and use a restroom facility. You stop by a small gas station and go up to the proprietor and politely ask for the key, expecting civility back but instead you are received with a look of aversion. Even though, in your mind you know why this business owner is giving you a gander of distaste, you are a bit taken aback because you can't believe that in this day and age your skin color is being challenged. Here you are the same being as this fellow, just different ancestry and because of that this non-thinking little man is LEGALLY allowed to, without speaking a word shake his head "NO" and point to the road, as if to say... You're not welcome here, hit the road bud. Well, that's the direction people like Rand Paul and John Stossel want us to go. Down the beaten path, back to the insensitive times of
The Jim Crow Laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated De jure racial segregation in all public facilities, with a supposedly "separate but equal" status for black Americans. In reality, this led to treatment and accommodations that were usually inferior to those provided for white Americans, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages. FROM THIS SITE:
Oh, folks like Paul and Stossel always calmly counter, we are not advocating racism in Public places like The Jim Crow Laws, we only want Private Corporations to have the freedom to practice racism, if they so desire.
Its enough to make, WE WHO THINK, shout out
Hey Scotty are you listening, beam me up fast!!
Below is a video that epitomizes sound judgment and experience. I wish Rand Paul would or could hear/see it. If people would only open their minds and SEE, we could all achieve success by using what works best... COMMON SENSE. I am also embedding this on my website: http:thinkingblue.blogspot.com
James "Bud" Ward: Overcoming Racism In The Corporate World
TAKE ACTION HERE . . . By now you've heard that the GOP's U.S. Senate candidate for Kentucky repeated his claim that a central piece of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was wrong, and that businesses should be free to discriminate against whomever they please. Rand Paul didn't seem to care that without federal intervention, people of color might still be second-class citizens in most aspects of American life.
Thanks to our friends at the civil rights organization, Color of Change, we now know that FOX contributor and business anchor John Stossel went even further than Paul and called for the section of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that applies to business to be repealed. And he's refused to back down, saying that:
"It's time now to repeal that part of the law because private businesses ought to get to discriminate. And I won't ever go to a place that's racist and I will tell everybody else not to and I'll speak against them. But it should be their right to be racist."
In Stossel's America, corporations have a constitutional right to enforce racial segregation. Not in our America!
This is a very dangerous moment. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons entitled to constitutional protections. Now Fox News Corp. is promoting the idea that the Supreme Court should protect "corporate persons" from the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Recent history has shown that the public accommodations section of the Civil Rights Act is still needed. In 1994, it was used to hold Denny's Restaurants accountable, after the chain repeatedly refused to seat Black customers. Just last year, it was used to go after a Philadelphia pool that prevented Black children from swimming there.
We have to protect the gains of the 1960s era civil rights movement. We must prevent the absurd doctrine of corporate personhood from being used to strike down civil rights law. And we must expand our efforts to amend the Constitution to make clear -- once and for all -- that human beings, not corporations, are protected by the Bill of Rights.
Act now. Sign below to tell the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice to prepare a public memo on the threat of "corporate personhood" to the civil rights of real people:
