The character of Julian Bond (1940-2015)


The Atlantic published a good article on Julian Bond, who passed away this week.



They praise his character, as do I, and how he was willing to risk life and freedom for his convictions. We need more people like him, to fight inequality, racism, and hatred.

After the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, Bond was one of 11 African Americans elected to the Georgia House. But when he arrived at the state capitol on January 10, 1966, the House refused to seat him, at the urging of Representative James “Sloppy” Floyd. SNCC had issued a statement opposing the war in Vietnam and expressing support for young men who refused induction into the military. America denied justice to black people at home, the statement argued; it was impossible to believe that its war would bring justice to the people of Asia. Asked about the statement on the radio, Bond had supported it. This meant, Sloppy Floyd said, that Bond could not take a legislator’s oath to support the Constitution.

He sued and the Supreme Court ruled in Bond vs Floyd that he was right.

Julian, you were one of the good guys. You will be remembered.

How people come together and create a website for Bernie Sanders without being asked, or paid

​How More Than 100 Strangers Came Together to Launch a Viral Bernie Sanders Site

From the site:

The creators of FeelTheBern.org are regular people who individually, and now collectively, are inspired by Bernie Sanders’ campaign for presidency of the United States. We span the socioeconomic and political spectrums, and are located across the country — and globe!
We came together because we wanted to make clear his record on and plans to address the most important issues affecting our communities, nation, and planet. Bernie has an extensive record in public service, so this project turned into a rather monumental group effort that’s mobilized over 125 unpaid volunteers (and counting).

You have to check out the site. It's very well done: http://feelthebern.org/
