McCrory's shame

Via email from Reverend Barber, regarding McCrory's secret signing of a bill repealing the Racial Justice Act.

Governor McCrory had the opportunity to veto this bill, and separate himself from the Pope-Tea Party zealots who have seized control in the legislature. Instead, he joined the forces of denial, which see no racism, hear no racism, in the back rooms and court rooms of our legal system of death. The citizens of North Carolina have not and will not sit by and allow the extremists to take control of the State. Governor McCrory, you have been put on notice.

I have often said that signing this bill would be tantamount to signing a declaration of war. Looks like I was right.


I saw a clip last night

on the local news, where Patty rationalized his actions saying the bill had the endorsement of a bipartisan group of DAs across the state. I'm guessing they were also all white.
