Burnsville rocks a Moral Monday!

A 300 plus group of the usual spirited, noisy Moral Monday participants assembled in the Burnsville town square for two hours of excellent speeches, music and the good natured but serious smack down of the regressive, mean spirited garbage, passing as laws, that oozed up from the cesspool of Republican minds passing itself off as the NC General Assembly.

An enjoyable mix of speechifying by teachers, librarians, religious leaders, past Moral Monday arrestees and music by local artists kept the crowd entertained for the rain free two hours. A representative of the NAACP was on hand to encourage the crowd and Rep. Ray Rapp who was in the crowd was recognized and thanked for his past work by the MC.

All in all a successful outing that not only attracted Yancey residents but folks from 8 or 10 counties all over the state. Well done Burnsville organizers!

Ray Rapp

..a true NC hero. What happened to him in 2012 is unconscionable.
