Moral Monday Slams Biz Money In Politics

Moral Monday Slams Biz Money In Politics!

Just kidding. Moral Monday only slams businesses on the Right who contribute to causes. Far Left, Progressive businesses? They can contribute anything they want.

Behold, CREDO mobile!  Awesome. An Activist cell phone. Just what we were missing. CREDO is the progressive’s choice in mobile phones for those concerned about their cell phone being liberal on the issues of “Women’s Rights, Climate, Marriage Equality, Peace and Social Justice“.   Check out their staff.

Press release below with the big announcement:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

July 16, 2014

 

Contact: Sarah Bufkin, NC NAACP - smbufkin@gmail.com or 404.285.3413

 

 

The North Carolina NAACP Welcomes Generous Donation from CREDO to Support the Forward Together Moral Movement’s Deep Organizing and Coalition Building Work

 

CREDO Empowers Phone Customers to Fund Nonprofits

 

DURHAM, NC – The North Carolina NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement thank CREDO, America’s progressive phone company, and its customers for making a substantial donation to support the Movement’s vital work building a transformative, fusion coalition at North Carolina’s grassroots to challenge regressive public policy.

 

“We welcome CREDO’s generous donation as the Movement now embarks on a Moral March to the Polls to register, educate and mobilize voters in communities across the state ahead of the November 2014 elections,” said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the NC NAACP. “This is a seminal moment in North Carolina, and CREDO and its customers’ contributions are helping the people of North Carolina build a social justice movement that will give rise to a new progressive South.”

 

CREDO has donated more than $76 million to organizations committed to social change since the company was founded in 1985. In May, the North Carolina NAACP was nominated by CREDO customers and chosen among hundreds of nonprofits to be featured as one of three groups eligible to receive funding for its work to promote public policy that is grounded in the state’s deepest moral and constitutional values.

 

In June, CREDO customers then helped decide how much money each nonprofit received by simply voting online or via phone or text.

 

To learn more about CREDO’s donations program, please visit the CREDO Mobile site.

What’s Up With Carrboro High’s White Cultural Dominance

Equity my any means necessary.

“White Cultural Dominance”
I had to see this one to believe it. Below is a portion of the Carrboro High mission statement. Emphasis added. (Update: The misspelling of their own name is their doing, not mine. I’ve updated this post with the correct spelling.)

Carroboro High School Core Belief

Vision for Equity and Excellence:

CHS is committed to creating an equitable and respectful educational experience for every student, family, staff member, and parent, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, religion, ability level, or post-secondary aspirations. Carrboro High School must be a place where the term “school community” is not a platitude, but a reality.  In order to create that reality, the people, families, and neighborhoods that make up our school must embrace each other’s differences and meet in the spirit of fraternity.  To that end, our school must facilitate the joining of disparate groups into one school community through endeavors that emphasize our school’s diversity.

Carrboro High School must be willing to face the reality of institutional racism, which exists because of the barriers to equity that come through the ongoing White cultural dominance in America.  The pervasive presence of this subtle disenfranchisement must be continually addressed.  The faculty and staff at CHS must be willing to engage the question of how race and racism affect our school.  While there is no silver bullet for the problems of institutional racism, our faculty, staff, and administration must be willing to consistently and courageously discuss, analyze, and evaluate the issue in order to create the change necessary.

 

Just out of curiosity. Take a look at the make-up of the student body. Hat Tip to Carolina Plott Hound for the link.

On My Way To ‘We Will Not Conform’

We Will Not Conform

 

 

Right now, I’m on my way to Dallas to take part in We Will Not Conform, a Common Core Call to Action.

I’ll be joining over a dozen other great people trying to spread the word about the fundamentally flawed education reform, Common Core, later this evening. Those bringing their knowledge to the table include:

Michelle Malkin, David Barton, Matt Kibbe, Dana Loesch, Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere, Kyle Olson, Katheen Jasper, Shane Vander Hart, Heather Crossin, Emmett McGroarty, Heidi Huber, Josh Breechan, Jenni White, Dr. Terrance Moore, Dr. Jay Spencer, Brian Glicklich, Becky Gerritson, Andrea Dillon, and Ellen Wheeler. 

Show starts at 7 pm Central, 8 pm  Eastern. Hope you’ll join us and find the resources you need to stop Common Core in your state.

Glenn Beck and Fathom Events invite you to your local movie theatre to experience a live national night of action against Common Core. WE WILL NOT CONFORM is a chance for anyone who’s tired of sitting idly by as the federal government continues its takeover of our schools to come together and do something about it.

WE WILL NOT CONFORM isn’t a typical show, it’s an interactive experience where theatregoers will work with experts like Michelle Malkin, David Barton and others in pursuit of real, tangible strategies to wake up our friends and neighbors and make our voices heard. This isn’t an evening about observing, it’s a chance to learn, share and engage with people as frustrated and motivated as you are. By the end of the night, the brainpower, experience, and passion of thousands of people from around the country will be captured in a comprehensive, unified plan of action distributed to all participants.

To Common Core supporters who thought they would win through silence, this night will be a very loud wake-up call. If you are sick of the endless rhetoric, futile debates, and useless advice about changing the system at the ballot box, then WE WILL NOT CONFORM is the event you’ve been waiting for.
