(Link to original Story:)
You all can understand why this headline caught my eye. Yep, strippers. (OK click to see a stripper) Seems the owner of the Club has put up a banner of Barry as the "Joker" and now the opposition is upset. Big deal. If you ask me it's a pure and simple case of free speech. NAACP shut up and go away it's not racist.
But Wait, there's more!
Here is a snip-it of his career path taken from The Richmond Peace Education Center Newsletter
(on page 3)
"Now the Executive Director of the Virginia NAACP, Khalfani remembers his first introduction to RPEC almost twenty years ago. His long time friend and current board member Wendy Northup connected Khalfani to a new community organizing position that RPEC and the Virginia Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty offered jointly at the time. In this position, Khalfani reached out to the Richmond African American community on behalf
of both of these organizations, and d to his current role.Khalfani’s career path creates along list of peace and justice organizations: the ACLU, Youth for Social Change, and the Virginia Anti-War Coalition amongst many others find themselves on this list. When he talks about the change he
sees occurring today, he comments through this outreach, he worked to intentionally include African Americans in Richmond-area peace and justice work. After eight years of community organizing, Khalfani accepted his first position with the NAACP as a Field Organizer, which, after another busy eight years, led to his current role. Khalfani’s career path creates a long list of peace and justice organizations:the ACLU, Youth for Social Change, and the Virginia Anti-War Coalition amongst many others find themselves on this list. When he talks about the change he sees occurring today, he comments on many small victories in redistricting as well as passing new bills and executive orders to help ensure economic justice and equality for all."
I wonder where King Salim Khalfani got his marching orders to protest a lowly strip club from.
