New NAACP president: Action against American Airlines my No. 1 priority

Published

on

The new leader of the 108-year-old National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was on CSPAN’s “News Makers Program Sunday,” laying out his program for the nation’s top civil rights organization.

At the top of his list of activist projects is the Oct. 24 National Travel Advisory he issued against American Airlines, said Derrick Johnson, the president and CEO of NAACP.

The advisory cited four incidents involving black passengers and American Airlines:

  1. An African-American man was required to relinquish his purchased seats aboard a flight from Washington, D.C. to Raleigh-Durham, merely because he responded to disrespectful and discriminatory comments directed toward him by two unruly white passengers;
  2. Despite having previously booked first-class tickets for herself and a traveling companion, an African-American woman’s seating assignment was switched to the coach section at the ticket counter, while her white companion remained assigned to a first-class seat;
  3. On a flight bound for New York from Miami, the pilot directed that an African-American woman be removed from the flight when she complained to the gate agent about having her seating assignment changed without her consent; and
  4. An African-American woman and her infant child were removed from a flight from Atlanta to New York City when the woman, incidentally a Harvard Law School student, asked that her stroller be retrieved from checked baggage before she would disembark.

The chairman and CEO of American Airlines W. Douglas Parker wrote to his employees in response to the advisory: “We were disappointed to learn of a travel advisory issued by the NAACP regarding American Airlines. The mission statement of the NAACP states that it ‘seeks to remove all barriers of racial discrimination.’ That’s a mission that the people of American Airlines endorse and facilitate every day – we do not and will not tolerate discrimination of any kind.”

Johnson said the NAACP is also supporting the lawsuit by William J. Barber, filed in December, after the former president of the North Carolina NAACP was removed from an American Airlines flight.

American Airlines officials referred to Barber’s removal from 2016 American Eagle flight, as a case of “disruptive passenger. “The flight had to return to the gate and was 40 minutes late due to the disruption.

Barber, who is known for his leadership and organizing against North Carolina Republicans, said he was removed from the flight because he is black. “To be born two days after the March on Washington and still have to deal with this kind of racism and discrimination, it’s troubling.”

American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said in a 2016 statement that the airline would not discuss Barber’s account because it involves a lawsuit. But he said the airline does not tolerate discrimination of any kind and we are committed to providing a positive travel experience for all of our customers.

Johnson said he will marshal the economic power of black Americans to effect justice.

“Our goal is to equip our members with information necessary, so they can exercise what we call Dollar Discipline,” he said.

“If you look at the current political landscape after last year’s election, we have seen a heightened lack of sensitivities toward race and diversity for the African-American community that has brought a lot of concern to us as an organization,” he said.

Associated Press reporter Jess Holland asked Johnson: “Dollar Discipline sounds like another way to say boycott?”

Johnson said it is not a boycott.  “We should practice with our resources a way in which we can enforce a value system that respects our existence.”

Trump Administration Posits That Transgender ‘Girls’ are Male, Triggering LGBT Advocates

The Trump administration is striking back against LGBT insanity.

Published

on

The Trump administration, led by Attorney General William Barr, is pushing back against LGBT insanity that is causing young girls to lose scholarship opportunities by competing against biological males in school sporting events.

The Department of Justice issued a legal document on Tuesday in Hartford, Conn. The document pertains to a case filed by the pro-Christian legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom, who are representing high school girls on the receiving end of alleged discrimination by school officials allowing birth men to participate in their sporting events.

The feds allege that the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) is violating Title IX in how the agency interprets gender identity.

“Under CIAC’s interpretation of Title IX, however, schools may not account for the real physiological differences between men and women. Instead, schools must have certain biological males — namely, those who publicly identify as female — compete against biological females,” Barr and his team wrote about the case.

“In so doing, CIAC deprives those women of the single-sex athletic competitions that are one of the marquee accomplishments of Title IX,” they added.

High school seniors Selina Soule of Glastonbury, Conn., and Chelsea Mitchell of Canton, Conn. filed the lawsuit along with co-plaintiff Alanna Smith, a sophomore at Danbury High School, last year in order to push back against transgender insanity.

“What Plaintiffs alleged — and what is true — is that due to physiological differences, female athletes cannot beat ‘comparably talented and trained’ males,” ADF attorney Christiana Holcomb said about the case.

Far-left special interest groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) are up in arms about the Trump administration’s embrace of common sense and rejection of LGBT dogma. ACLU attorney Chase Strangio made a strange allusion to coronavirus while whining about the administration’s behavior in a Twitter post.

“This is what the Attorney General is prioritizing while 12 people died last night from COVID-19 related complications at the hospital near my house. When we let the gov’t police our bodies like this, they will always leave “undesirable” bodies to die,” Strangio worte.

Strangio is representing the boys who claim they are girls and is adamant about their “right” to deprive biological women of their ability to receive scholarships opportunities in sports.

“Our clients are two high school seniors who are just trying to enjoy their final track season of high school and who now have to contend with the federal government arguing against their right to equal educational opportunities,” Strangio said to the AP.

“History will look back on these anti-trans attacks with deep regret and shame. In the meantime we will continue to fight for the rights of all girls to participate in the sports they love,” he added.

Big League Politics will continue to cover this case as it makes its way through the courts as well as other perverse and abusive actions related to the satanic LGBT agenda.
