South Carolina Sheriff Says NAACP Is A ‘Racist Group’ Like The KKK


just no words

A South Carolina sheriff is dismissing criticism over his comments comparing the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to the Ku Klux Klan as “political bashing.”

Sheriff Chuck Wright of Spartanburg County, South Carolina announced at a Greenville-Spartanburg Republican Women’s meeting earlier this month that “the most racist people in America right now sometimes are minorities,” according to WYFF, the local NBC station.

Clinton donates millions to strapped Democratic Party

Hillary Clinton isn’t yet the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, but she’s already good for its bottom line.

The Democratic National Committee began the presidential election year almost $1 million in the hole — a bad situation that would have been even worse without the millions of dollars in fundraising that Clinton’s campaign sent its way.

That kind of assistance makes Clinton unique in the 2016 presidential field. No one else, Republican or Democrat, is raising money for his or her party at this early stage, including her Democratic rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders.

While that money would benefit Clinton should she capture the nomination, it comes with short-term complications. Already, Sanders allies have complained that the party favors her, pointing to the initial scarcity of debates as one example.


Here's All the Business N.C. Has Lost Because of Anti-LGBT Bill

Since North Carolina passed an anti-LGBT bill March 23, the backlash from businesses and entertainers has been swift. Corporations have canceled expansions in the state, therefore scrapping jobs that they were planning to offer, in protest of House Bill 2.

HB 2 struck down LGBT-inclusive antidiscrimination ordinances in cities and counties statewide, and prohibits cities from adopting any new ones. It also expressly requires transgender people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that do not match their gender identity.

On Tuesday, N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory issued an executive order that made limited changes to HB 2. The order affirms that private businesses and nonprofit groups can establish their own policies for restroom facilities, something that was not affected by the law but has been the subject of some confusion.

McCrory’s action also affirms that private businesses, nonprofits, and local governments can establish their own employment nondiscrimination policies — for their own workers. And it expands the state’s employment nondiscrimination policy to include sexual orientation and gender identity — that is, for state employees.


Interesting info about Paul Song

if it wasn't for Bill Clinton, his sister in law might still be doing hard time in North Korea

On January 3, 2007, Ling announced her engagement to radiation oncologist Paul Song.[20] They married on May 26, 2007, in Los Angeles, California. The wedding party included guests such as Connie Chung, one of Lisa's personal heroes, and actresses Kelly Hu and Diane Farr.[21] On June 7, 2009, she was awarded an honorary doctorate from National University, after giving the commencement speech there.[22] In October 2012 Ling announced on Anderson Cooper's talk show that she and her husband were expecting their first child, a baby girl. She gave birth to a daughter named Jett Ling Song on March 8, 2013.[23][24] The family resides in Santa Monica, California.[25][26]

Her younger sister, Laura Ling, also a journalist, was managing editor of Vanguard at Current TV and currently a host and reporter on E! Network. In March 2009 Laura and her colleague Euna Lee were detained by North Korea for illegal entry into the country. They had been attempting to film refugees along the border with China.[27] In June, they were sentenced to 12 years in a labor prison for illegal entry into North Korea, and unspecified hostile acts.[28]

North Korea released Laura and Euna on August 4, 2009 after a visit from former U.S. President Bill Clinton.[29] Laura and Lisa went on to collaborate on the first book either has had published, Somewhere Inside: One Sister's Captivity in North Korea and the Other's Fight to Bring Her Home, published in May 2010.[30]
