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.”

SATURDAY 9/26: Franklin Graham’s ‘Prayer March’ in Washington D.C. Aims to Revive Christianity to Unite Americans

The truth of Christ is desperately needed in the hearts of Americans.

Renowned pastor Franklin Graham is set to hold his Prayer March 2020 on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 12pm to 2pm at the Lincoln Memorial during a time in which national unity is desperately needed.

“America is in trouble. Our communities are hurting, our people are divided, and there’s fear and uncertainty all around us. Let’s join together and do the most important thing: pray!” Graham announced on the group’s website.

The 1.8-mile march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial then continue through the World War II Memorial. The Christians will then make their way to the Washington Monument over to the National Museum of American History & Culture and then to the National Archives before ending at the U.S. Capitol.

“Prayer is our most important weapon. It allows us to go directly to the King of Kings, directly to stand in front of the throne of grace, and make our petitions directly to the throne of God,” Graham said in a video promoting the march.

Because of the marxist Black Lives Matter terror movement and the COVID-19 scamdemic, religious freedom in America is under attack like never before.

Big League Politics has reported on how churches are getting fined for merely holding in-person services, which is heinously unconstitutional and makes a mockery of the 1st Amendment:

Over the past week, North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, California has amassed $15,000 in fines for holding church gatherings.

Christianity Daily noted that the church’s move violated the county’s health order and “It was the largest corona virus related fines levied in Santa Clara County.”

On August 23, 2020, the county slapped the church with two $5,000 fines for holding services indoor during the morning and evening. The church was fined again $5,000 for conducting another service in-person.

On the church’s door, there was a cease-and-desist letter posted, which explained that “North Valley Baptist was in violation of the health order for holding indoor services, failing to ensure mask-wearing and social distancing indoors, singing during services and failing to submit a social distancing protocol.”

The $5000 fine in question is the highest possible financial penalty for businesses that violate the Wuhan virus health order that Santa Clara county implemented earlier in August. Counsel James Williams remarked that “the county has avoided issuing fines in favor of working with businesses to bring them into compliance.”

Local governments across the nation are exploiting the Wuhan virus pandemic to implement policies that undermine the right to peaceful gatherings and certain forms of social activity that individuals on the right or organizations that uphold traditional values tend to participate in.

The founders of Black Lives Matter have been explicit about their marxist intentions. They hope to not just inflict racial dominance over white people, but also to destroy the capitalist system and impose a tyranny on America that resulted in the gruesome murders of tens of millions of Christians worldwide.

Only the blood of Christ can re-purify the American nation, which has drifted into secularism and may experience damnation as a result. The Prayer March could be the stop of America’s slide into Sodom and Gomorrah.
