Dees on rights — Lawyer who took out Aryan nations to speak at UI today,

Morris Dees, one of the primary lawyers responsible for deconstructing the Aryan Nations in North Idaho, will speak at 3:30  p.m. today in the Student Union Building Ballroom as this year’s guest for the Bellwood Memorial Lecture Series.
Dees speech, titled “Justice for all in a changing America,” will focus on comparing human and civil rights issues prevalent in the U.S. today to those faced by Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.
“It couldn’t be at a better time when we’re finding a small group of congressmen are holding the country hostage because they’re trying to get rid of Obamacare …  because they just don’t happen to like it,” Dees said. “It’s a movement, I’m sure, Dr. King would be on the forefront of in Washington to get health care to the masses of people who don’t have it.”
Dees and a team of lawyers from the SPLC developed a strategy that used civil lawsuits against groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and the Aryan Nations of North Idaho. Dees helped his clients sue the organizations for wrongful acts against the clients, and when he won, the courts seized the groups’ assets such as money, land and buildings, which put them out of business. In 2001, Dees won a $6.5 million case against the Aryan Nations located north of Coeur d’Alene.

*** Idaho's racist image may change
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Northern Idaho, predominantly white andrural, has been home for nearly three decades to the racist AryanNations. It has struggled with a reputation as a haven for hate. Butresidents say a $6.3 million jury verdict returned Thursday againstAryan Nations founder Richard Butler and three of his followers forattacking two people near the sect's compound may be the first steptoward rehabilitating the region's image. Morris Dees, the co-founderof the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., and one ofthe attorneys for the plaintiffs, said he intended to enforce thejudgment, taking everything the Aryan Nations owns, including itstrademark name. He even suggested turning the 20-acre Aryan Nationscompound into a center for tolerance, teaching about the Holocaust.See*** Also: Aryan Nations leaders says Racists To Stay in Idaho, see

Although many of the groups disbanded due to bankruptcy, Dees said many of them reformed under different names and different leaders and many of the ideas of the hate groups still exist today.
“What I found today that’s changed is if you take the rhetoric and the publications of the Aryan Nations, the Ku Klux Klan, the Skinhead movement and all those … the rhetoric they were pushing back then is actually become mainstream today,” Dees said. “You can get on Fox television and hear basically the same things they were saying back then. Obviously, not in the same terms, but they got their spokespeople right there in some of these Rush Limbaugh types.”
Let's see Mr. Dees; to the best of my knowledge and those that aren't ANTI-WHITE which you clearly are towards the Aryan Nations, the KKK and anything white or pro-White, you speak of these same groups using the same old rhetoric, if that is the case what the hell do you call the constant Holocaust stories and Slavery rants?  I call that total mind control and brainwashing rhetoric to the fullest!
Dees said he will also address what he believes is the real issue facing America today — a fear of changing demographics.
“When I started practicing law in 1960, 15 percent of people in our country were people of color,” Dees said.
Today that number is 36 percent, Dees said, and it’s projected to reach more than 50 percent in the next 20 to 30 years.
“That’s frightening a lot of people who don’t want people who are different from them being in control of this country,” Dees said. “And with President Obama, he represents this frightening future — especially the Tea Party types — feel is coming.”
Dees said race is not the only changing demographic making people uncomfortable. LGBTQA issues, women’s right issues and economic justice are just a few of the things, Dees said, are still causing significant tension in the U.S. political system.
“I don’t think Martin Luther King or anybody else thought that ‘I have a dream’ meant that everything was going to be solved when African Americans got the right to vote,” Dees said. 
Are you fricking kidding me, I wish blacks would get the hell over themselves, Black men had the right to vote in the USA, long before any women could.  So please drop that tired story.  Also, please excuse my sources as I think this gives a little reference into what I'm trying to say as far as struggles, etc.
'The 15th Amendment gave black men the right to vote in 1870, but many decades would pass before that apparent promise became reality.
Thwarting the measure's intent were a number of actions by states that sought to keep blacks from the polls.  For example, some states required blacks to pass literacy tests before voting -- a hurdle not placed before already-registered white voters. A Supreme Court decision overturned that tactic in 1915.'  source

On Election Day in 1920, millions of American women exercised their right to vote for the first time. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.  source

“The back of the bus is not ridden by black people today. They get in where they want to, but from an economic standpoint, we have an enormous disparity in job opportunities and income.”   MORE AT SOURCE

Apparently you have never ridden a City or Public Transportation bus in a long long time Mr. Dees, many blacks flock to the back of the bus and everywhere else, not giving up their seats for anyone, including elderly disabled blacks.  Ummmmmmm, I know that is exactly what MLK and Rosa Parks where going for, don't ya think! What class wouldn't you say, them poor oppressed  black people.
