Sunday Etc.

Obituary: Longtime civil rights activist Julian Bond, 75, died yesterday after a brief illness.

Bond was also a former mayor of Atlanta.

Bond campaigned for equal rights for minorities beyond the United States.

In 1985, police arrested him outside the South African Embassy in Washington, where he was protesting against apartheid, the legalized racial segregation enforced by South Africa at the time.

"He advocated not just for African-Americans, but for every group, indeed every person subject to oppression and discrimination because he recognized the common humanity in us all," Dees said.

Bond was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1965, but his white colleagues in the House refused to let him take his seat because of his opposition to the Vietnam War. A year later, the Supreme Court accused the Legislature of violating his freedom of speech and ordered it to seat him.
______ is no leader in workplace rights.

A group of terrorists commit human rights atrocities on half of the human race in the name of theology.

Somehow this shit needs to be eradicated.

I wish I was still down there in Reno and nearby areas.

I would be going to ALL of the presidential candidate events that are open to the public.

Bernie Sanders will be in Reno on Tuesday evening.
