The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s was a 3 prong movement.
Socially we can live, dine, and worship wherever we choose. Politically we have representatives of color even to the highest seat in the land. Economically.......
We are still fighting for Economic Equality. People of color and women are still receiving a lower wage for the same work. Minorities are still 5x more likely to be layed off or terminated. Minorities are less likely to be considered for managerial positions. Economic equality has not been realized! So much so that 75% of the complaints the NAACP receives are Employment Related. We have received complaints where persons failed random drug screenings at their company but on the very same day paid for their own drug screening and results were negative for all substances. Complaints where management referred to a 50+ year old man as "Boy", he complained and 3 days later was walked off the job. These are just examples of the economic inequality that we have termed ECONOMIC LYNCHING! NO, you will no longer walk down streets and see bodies of minorities hung from a light pole; we are lynched now through economics and because Ohio is an "At Will" employment state, the lynching is legal and hard to combat. We are not giving up the fight! It took years for minorities to achieve Social and Political gains and it will take just as long to stop the Economical Lynching, but first we must make everyone aware that we are still being lynched - it is just within our finances.
STOP ECONOMIC LYNCHING
