Demonstrate on Feb 4 against Racial Hysteria Promoted by Republicans
There will be a demonstration at 122 East 83rd Street, on 4 February 2011 at 1:30pm. This demonstration will be held because of the consistent appeals to Racial Hysteria made by the leading 2 of the leading candidates for the Republican Nomination, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum. Ron Paul shares in this attempt to fan the flames of racial hatred by his Newsletter, and what may be worse - Mitt Romney has stood on the podium while these comments are made and says nothing, yet he feels he's qualified to lead a nation. This demonstration is being held to show our disgust and rejection of those that would use our election to stigmatize an entire race of people. It is an American demonstration against Hate. We invite all Americans regardless of party affiliation or racial or ethnic background to participate in this demonstration to show that this is not Nazi Germany or the Old American South, and that we will not let certain Wealthy Elites take what should be an arena to contest opposing political and economic ideas and turn it into a Cockfight based on attempt to arouse hatred.
The P.O.C for this demonstration is:
Robert C Gumbs
Co-Chairman of the Community Church's Anti-Racism Committee
