The statement alluded to the reported meetings being held in secret between lawmakers and the NBA officials.

“Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change.”

The Wages of #HB2 Appeasement

Apparently, the NBA is an official elected body in the state of North Carolina. Or at least that is how they are being treated by ‘NCGA leadership’ and Governor McCrory who have been in ‘private’ and closed door discussions with the NBA over changes to HB2.

Now we learn a second draft with additional changes to HB2 in in play that includes a ‘ blue ribbon commission’.

You cannot appease anyone or anything whose primary goal is your complete destruction. Continue reading
