Major Civil Rights Group Backs #HB2

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference has come out in support of HB2.

FOX 8:

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Southern Christian Leadership Conference of North Carolina has announced that they support Gov. Pat McCrory on the controversial so-called “Bathroom Bill.”

“This is not the same civil rights violation which the people of color have experienced,” the organization said in a prepared statement.

“This is a religious issue, where the U.S. government is attempting to force the people in North Carolina to change their spiritual and moral beliefs.”

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference is an African-American civil rights organization that had a large role in the American Civil Rights Movement.

Some people might not understand just how significant this is.

To clarify, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference was established in 1957 and was led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as its first president.
