“No” on Mr. Thomas Farr for a life-time appointment, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

BE THE LEADER and side with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Which concluded that Mr. Farr’s aggressive defense of North Carolina’s massive voter suppression law passed in 2013 in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Shelby County v. Holder decision was passed with discriminatory intent…the law “target African Americans with almost surgical precision.”
BE THE LEADER and stand with the AFL-CIO opposed to Mr. Farr’s nomination for his defense of employers and corporations charged with employment discrimination throughout his legal career, and fought efforts to create safe working conditions.

Beethoven, the Most Famous Classical Musician of All Time, Was... a Black Man!
Ludwig Van Beethoven is arguably the most famous and well known classical musician and composer in all of history, but his true identity and ethnicity has been a falsehood and obscurity for many, many years. Society has depicted him as a white male with either blonde or brunette colored hair, being shown in drawings, paintings, and illustrations all over the world.
But in reality, Beethoven was labeled by many as a “Mulatto”, or “Black Spaniard”. But why? Well, according to Gabriel Scott, historian and author of The Chosen Ones: Perception of Malcolm and Martin, his father was a white German and his mother was a “Moor”.
