North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson compared critical race theory to the ideology of the Ku Klux Klan on Newsmax on Friday, saying they ”mirror each other.”

The 52-year-old Republican, the first Black person to hold the office of lieutenant governor in North Carolina, derided critical race theory, which the Encyclopedia Britannica defines as the belief that race is a socially constructed category ingrained in law intended to maintain social, economic, and political inequalities between whites and nonwhites. It holds that the U.S. society is inherently racist.

”It is absolutely insidious,” Robinson said on ”Greg Kelly Reports.” ”What’s happening here, you go and take critical race theory is that is applied down and … then take some of the ideologies that were pushed by groups like the Ku Klux Klan and other hate groups, you can almost set them on top of each other, and they mirror each other in the way that they divide and the way they demonize people by race.”

Robinson, a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserve and a native of North Carolina — the ninth of 10 children — in November was voted to the second highest elected position in the state. He also derided Black Lives Matter, saying its name is a complete misnomer.

”This has nothing to do with social justice,” he said. ”Social justice is simple. Social justice is a concept like you earn your keep and you keep what you earn. That’s social justice, and that’s not what they’re talking about. They are talking about introducing socialism into this country.

”If Black Lives Matter really lived up to their moniker and say that Black lives matter, they would not be standing up to the headache of police brutality, they would be standing up to the cancer of gang violence and drug proliferation in Black neighborhoods.”

Breaking, Supermarket Cashier Killed, Deputy Wounded in Georgia Over Mask-Wearing Dispute

Published

on

A supermarket cashier in Georgia was shot and killed by a customer on Monday in a dispute over the wearing of a face mask before the gunman was wounded in an exchange of gunfire with the store’s security guard, the local sheriff said.

The guard was also wounded in the incident which occurred at a little after 1 p.m. at the Big Bear Supermarket in DeKalb County, DeKalb County Sheriff Melody Maddox told a news conference.

“It was over a mask. I don’t know if they were wearing, or not wearing,” she said. “The wearing of the mask and not wearing of the mask, people have their own opinion about it and it is very sensitive at this time.”

Several people were inside the store when a confrontation over mask wearing ensued. The gunman pulled out a weapon and shot the cashier. The security guard the opened fire on him, striking him a couple of times, Maddox said.

Businesses in Georgia can request customers wear a mask to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, but are prohibited from requiring them to do so, according to executive orders issued by Republican Governor Brian Kemp.

Maddox did not release the names of the individuals involved in the shooting. She said all three were rushed to the hospital, where the guard remains in stable condition after he was shot twice.

The security guard is a retired 30-year veteran of the DeKalb County Police Department who is now a reserve deputy with the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. The guard, who works part-time at the supermarket, was wearing a protective vest, Maddox said.

Over 130 groups sign letter that urges Biden to end solitary confinement on the federal level

Published

Over 130 civil rights, religious, public health and criminal and social justice groups signed a letter released Monday calling for President Biden to fulfiill his campaign promise to end solitary confinement in federal detention centers.

The American Civil Liberties Union, The Innocence Project, and the Federal Anti-Solitary Taskforce were among some of the most notable endorsers.

The letter calls upon Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to end solitary confinement on the federal level, at least for days at a time and except in extreme situations. They call the confinement “counterproductive” and harmful to those forced to endure it. 

According to the letter, “On any given day before the COVID-19 pandemic, of the 2.3 million people incarcerated in the United States, at least 80,000 people were being held in solitary confinement for a period of more than two weeks.”

In a blueprint presentation created by FAST and ACLU, the organizations outline alternatives including making the punishment last hours, instead of days. 

Some of the other alternative solutions proposed include independent oversight of the system, the protection of special populations more susceptible to the effects of  ‘involuntary lock-ins,’ including members of the LGBTQ population, people over the age of 55 and under 25 and those with mental health problems.

They also call upon Congress to pass The Solitary Confinement Study and Reform Act of 2019 (HR 4488).

According to the presentation at least 70 legislative measure were filed across 32 states, to end some aspect of solitary confinement in state prisons and jails.”
