OK so I just did this

Last edited Tue Oct 10, 2017, 03:04 AM - Edit history (1)

First I went over to the Dallas Cowboy's site and on their "Contact" page I gave them a bit of my mind. I told them how racist it is to take away their players' 1st amendment rights to protest the police brutality that they face every day and that they need to learn about systemic racism and racial profiling


After I clicked "submit" I came upon a page where you could ask for donations from the Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation explained below

The Gene and Jerry Jones Family Foundation and the Dallas Cowboys are happy to review in-kind donation requests from 501c3 non-profit organizations holding auction or raffle fundraisers when provided at least an eight (8) week notice of the scheduled fundraising event. To be considered for a donation, please submit a request using the system below.


So I submitted a request. I initially just said I wanted them to make a donation to the ACLU but they wanted detail and a type of fundraiser so I just winged it

I would like you to have a big benefit gala to raise money for the ACLU. And I would like you to have someone from the ACLU speak at the Gala about systemic racism in our country. You obviously need to learn about this and you need to make amends to your black employees for suggesting that their civil rights are not as important as your personal beliefs. You are taking away their right to protest against police brutality that they routinely experience. Your behavior has been unethical and insensitive and you need to make amends


The name of my organization is: A private citizen with a message


I'm sure there won't be a gala to raise money for the ACLU coming soon but maybe they'll get a message and donate some money. Jerry Jone's net worth is 5.6 billion. He can surely spare some. And if not I've had my say with them - twice

1. Excellent! I love to do subversive things like that and admire anyone

who takes that step to promote a cause. I once printed up numerous strips of paper with an anti George W. Bush message on them. Then I frequented book stores and put slid them in between the pages of the books as if they were part of the book.

2. That's a great idea! I'm sure you were influential

How about anti-Trump messages in a Christian bookstore?

4. Not sure if I was but it felt good knowing some rightwinger

would come across it and be perturbed at what they were reading. I don't frequent Christian book stores but that's a great idea and next on the list.
