Senate rejects Obama appointment of Debo Adegbile to top civil rights post

Several Senate Democrats joined with Republicans in voting against Debo Adegbile, whose nomination was adamantly and vocally opposed by conservatives due to his participation in an appeal filed on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal -- an internationally-known prisoner convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

Tell the Senate: Confirm Debo Adebgile's Nomination

Dear Senators Heitkamp, Manchin, Pryor, Walsh, Donnelly, Casey, and Coons,

Yesterday's vote not to confirm Debo Adegbile — a staunch voting rights advocate and principled civil rights attorney — to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice was clearly the disappointing result of a right-wing smear campaign to destroy his character.

Debo Adegbile is one of the nation's top civil rights
attorneys and a leading expert on voting rights. He has defended the Voting Rights Act before the Supreme Court twice — the first time, successfully — and he was the only Black attorney to argue before the Supreme Court last term. At a time when the voting rights of Black folks, women, the elderly, students and many others are under attack, an appointment like Adegbile's would ensure that there was someone in the Justice Department who knows what's at stake and will take a principled stand to defend the rights and privileges we all cherish, including the freedom to vote.

We
demand another vote to confirm Adegbile's nomination.

Sincerely,

Clyde

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
