It’s a shame that it may take the threat of taking federal money away from a state’s budget. It’s shameful that bigotry and discrimination is setting up shop in so many states in this country.
It first starts by setting shop in the minds of the intolerant American citizen.
We are all created equal!
Isn’t that a basic pillar of the American Constitution? This country was created based on that very same fact.
The second paragraph in the Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
U.S. Justice Department officials repudiated North Carolina’s House Bill 2 on Wednesday, May 4, telling Gov. Pat McCrory that the law violates the U.S. Civil Rights Act and Title IX – a finding that could jeopardize billions in federal education funding.
The department gave state officials until Monday, May 9, 2016, to respond “by confirming that the State will not comply with or implement HB2.”
The letter says HB2, which pre-empted Charlotte’s anti-discrimination ordinance, violates Title IX, which bars discrimination in education based on sex, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which bans employment discrimination.
If the finding is upheld, North Carolina could lose federal education funding. During the current school year, state public schools received $861 million. In 2014-2015, the University of North Carolina system got $1.4 billion.
