VIDEO: Civil Rights Icon Clarence Henderson: ‘I Was Elated When President Trump Was Elected’

Published

on

On August 28, 1963 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr gave his famous “I Have a Dream Speech.”

For people who study and analyze speeches, I Have A Dream is one of the all time greatest ever given. The ability that Dr. King had to move people to action with his words was incredible. He ranks as one of the all time greatest orators in the world.

But how many people understood the passion of his heart and the motivation for the words he spoke? How many people understand his movement today? What did he want for the black people he represented in 1960? It seems as if the media never asks those questions. There don’t seem to be many stories of what took Dr. King to Washington DC on that day in August in 1963 in the first place.

However there does remain a very high- profile remnant of the Civil Rights movement alive today and still active. He is still dreaming. Mr. Clarence Henderson was a prominent leader of the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement. He is responsible for the Lunch Counter Sit In, in Greensboro North Carolina.

Mr. Henderson is still speaking and organizing on behalf of the same black community he has always loved, and here in this exclusive Big League Politics video, he again is organizing from his seat in the North Carolina Republican Party to bring awareness to government leaders that his community still needs jobs. He still believes that employment is the freedom that the black community needs.

“The Government does not give us rights, they are supposed to protect our rights, but not by riots. We have to do it thru the power of the Republic. There is no Democracy in the Constitution. It is the job of the people to defend our Construction and our Rights. We are in a Free Enterprise-Capitalist system. That is why I was elated when President Trump was elected. We have had too many Government leaders push socialism on us and we need Jobs for Freedom,” Henderson says.

WATCH:

The March on Washington was about the right to work and be free. Mr. Clarence Henderson is keeping that dream alive in own speeches, and that is to see people understand that America is great and that Black Americans are the natural freedom fighters , steeped in founding principles, and busy at work . “Riots are not acceptable” he says.

Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books

It’s all so tiresome.

Published

on

The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.

Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.

Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.

To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.

Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.

The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
