Appeals Court Overturns District Court Ruling, 
Calls for Preliminary Injunction on Key Parts of North Carolina Voter Suppression Law
A Statement from Advancement Project

WASHINGTON - The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals today overturned a district court's decision to deny a preliminary injunction of key parts of North Carolina's H.B. 589, a massive voter suppression law. The three-judge panel, with one judge dissenting, ruled in favor of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP, the League of Women Voters and other plaintiffs who sought to block certain provisions of the law from being effect for the upcoming November elections. The court ordered an immediate preliminary injunction to block two provisions - the elimination of same-day registration and the prohibition of out-of-precinct ballots from being counted - from taking effect in November's election. Advancement Project, which represents the NC NAACP with co-counsel Kirkland & Ellis LLP, as well as North Carolina lawyers Adam Stein and Irving Joyner, issued the following statement in response to the decision:

"We are pleased with the Circuit Court's ruling today," said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP. "The evidence clearly showed that, under North Carolina's voter suppression law, African Americans would have faced higher barriers to the ballot this November, and the Court took an important step to ensure that this election will remain free, fair, and accessible to all North Carolina voters. Our fight is not yet over, though. We will charge ahead until this law is permanently overturned in the full trial next summer. Until then, we will continue to take our movement to the streets to make sure all people in our democracy have an equal voice in this and all elections."

"The Court's decision means that voters who have relied on same-day registration and the counting of ballots that were cast out of precinct will no longer have to worry about burdens on their right to vote this November," said Advancement Project Co-Director Penda D. Hair. "We know that voters of color rely most heavily on these voting measures, and they would have borne the brunt of the burden if same-day registration and out-of-precinct voting were not allowed this November. While this partial injunction is an important first step, today's decision is only the promising beginning of a long fight to fully restore the rights of North Carolina voters and renew the integrity of democracy in the state."

"We are pleased that the Fourth Circuit applied the plain language of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act to enjoin the significant changes to Same Day Registration and out of precinct voting in North Carolina," said Daniel T. Donovan, Kirkland & Ellis partner. "This decision will enable North Carolina voters, especially African-American voters, to exercise their fundamental right to vote."

            MSNBC LETS GO OF GOLDIE – If any of you are avid MSNBC watchers, like me, then you know that Goldie Taylor was one of the most effective commentators on the news channel. She is black, intelligent, a military veteran, a writer, and certainly someone who came across as clear and sincere in all of her commentary that I saw.
            Plus Goldie was bad to look at either.
            For a channel that has more black viewers that CNN and FOX combined, MSNBC having Goldie Taylor on its roster. With the plethora of black issues that have come to fore, including, obviously, the election of a black president, Taylor proved to be solid in her ability to express a bread-and-butter point-of-view.
            And I was extremely impressed with her of being a battered woman during recent coverage of the Ray Rice controversy. Goldie spoke from the heart about her own experience, and what she believed the NFL should have done in punishing Rice had it not been so interested in covering its own tail.
            So when word came this week that MSNBC, which is currently treading water in its ratings race with Fox and CNN, did not renew Goldie Taylor’s contract for commentary, the words, “how stupid” crossed my mind, as in, “When you’re trying to fix what’s broken, do NOT break what doesn’t need fixing.
            Goldie Taylor is an asset, not a liability by any stretch of the imagination, to MSNBC, or any other media outlet looking to have best commentary in its fold. Quite frankly, unless there’s something wrong that has not been made public, I don’t understand MSNBC’s thinking on this.
            So all I, and her many fans across the nation, can do for Goldie Taylor is to wish her well. She tweeted that she would probably spend more time writing now, so I look forward to her work.
            Someone asked her if she might be seen on Fox News in the future? Goldie’s response – “Only if they cover my wake.”
            Amen to that, Sista Goldie, amen to that. Be well, and be blessed.
            BLACK-ISH – By the time you read this, the second episode of the new ABC-TV situation comedy, “Black-ish” will have aired. Given that this is being written before it does, let me first say that any show (but not necessarily every show) deserves at least three episodes to get in a groove in order to be its best ultimately.
            My feeling is that if the producers and writers can’t figure out their path by episode 3, then they probably never will, and that show won’t be on the air for long.
            So as far as “Black-ish” is concerned, that rule should apply, cause what I saw in the pilot episode was iffy, at best.
            Starring the talented Anthony Anderson, Tracy Ellis Ross and Lawrence Fishburne as a middle-class black family that struggles to maintain their cultural identity in a predominantly white world, ABC has wisely scheduled the comedy to air right behind its Wednesday night powerhouse “Modern Family,” which is a comedy about a white household struggling with the challenges of everyone in it being off their collective rocker.
            So the mission for “Black-ish” automatically is to be both “black” and inoffensive at the same time. In otherwise, for the middle-class white families (who are the majority of viewers) who watch and enjoy “Modern Family,” lets not scare
them away afterwards.
            That might explain the hyper-craziness I witnessed in the “Blackish” pilot last week. It was the height of silliness, with the plot being that Dre, the black father, was afraid that his oldest son was veering more towards traditionally non-black activities, like field hockey and bar mitzvahs, than those of his community.
            Here was the problem with that – because this is a comedy, the danger lied in the traditional black activities Dre tried to expose his son to being trivialized and mocked. Cultural traditions – I don’t care who they belong to – should never be trivialized by those outside of that culture because they all hold deep meaning to somebody. On network television, on a “black” show playing for laughs, that’s a very real possibility that’s bound to get “Black-ish” in trouble at some point, if it hasn’t already.
            Indeed, some folks on Facebook have blasted the show just on its name alone, even though both Fishburne and Anderson serve as producers.
            Based on what I saw from the pilot, “Black-ish” has its moments. But I have questions about exactly how skilled its writing staff is in pulling this show off successfully. I understand what they’re trying to do. Question is, can they do it?
            Like I said, I give this show three episodes to pull it together. And if stuff doesn’t tighten up shortly, they may be the only three episodes ABC give it, if the ratings (which were good for the pilot last week) drop hard.
            SHONDA RHIMES and the NYT – By now you may have heard about the controversy surrounding the recent New York Times article that was critical of “Scandal” producer Shonda Rhimes, calling her an “…angry black woman.”
            So let me get this straight…the white female writer of the NYT article about television’s most powerful black female producer, thinks it was justified to call her an “angry black female” just because Rhimes now owns Thursday night on ABC with “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal,” and Rhimes’ newest,. “How to Get Away with Murder” starring Oscar nominee Viola Davis.
            Isn’t it amazing how when someone not part of the traditional power structure is so successful they can command a whole evening of television, that traditional institutions have a tendency not to like it? Outside of how black men are treated on “Scandal,” I have no qualms about her success, and she certainly doesn’t deserve personal attacks from the NYT or anyone else.
            Last time I looked, Shonda Rhimes’ ABC lineup on Thursday night is doing well against CBS’ NFL broadcast. I’m certain that the last thing that should make Sista Rhimes is “angry.”

Editor's Note - the deadline to register to vote for the Nov. 4th election in North Carolina is Friday, October 10th. It is also the deadline to make sure, if you are already registered, to make sure that you are properly registered where you live. Early voting begins Oct. 23rd.

            With the Nov. 4th mid-term elections just four weeks away, the African-American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party is charging a right-wing conservative group with “voter fraud” for its erroneous voter registration efforts, and is supporting the state Democratic Party’s formal complaint to the NC Board of Elections over what the AAC-NCDP calls an effort of  “…misleading North Carolina’s voters.”
            Willie Fleming, president of the AAC-NCDP, issued a statement this week “strongly” supporting the formal complaint filed by NCDP Executive Director Casey Mann with the NC Board of Elections against the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, an offshoot of an Arlington, Va.-based conservative nonprofit “political advocacy” group funded by the right-wing industrialists, the Koch Brothers.
            This is something that needs to be investigated. Why would Americans For Prosperity do this,” Fleming asked. “Obviously, they are trying to set the stage for fake voter fraud allegations because they know the GOP cannot win on its platform or ideals. They have to convince Republicans that Democrats cheat. What they cannot do is convince most Republicans to vote for the GOP based on their own platform, because the GOP platform hurts most Republicans. We support NCDP and will do anything in our power to stop GOP-encouraged voter fraud. Democrats win with our votes. Not their lies.”
The national AFP was responsible for Republicans taking over the US House in 2010, and is a prime source of opposition to President Obama’s policies.
            The state AFP chapter has been strongly supportive of the current Republican-led NC General Assembly, and Republican Gov. Pat McCrory.
            At issue are recent voter registration mailings sent out by the AFP Foundation to thousands of potential voters across the state reportedly containing false and misleading information about voting requirements in the upcoming election.
            According to published reports, many of the mailers were addressed not only to foreign immigrants, but also to a deceased child, and even someone’s pet cat. The mailers also contained false information of where to send the completed forms, and false answers to questions.
            The goal, many critics suggest, is to perhaps get people who are not qualified to vote to attempt to cast ballots so that Republicans can point to that as “proof” of their claims of massive voter fraud, thus justifying the new voter ID laws currently being challenged in federal court.
            AFP Foundation calls the erroneous voter registration mailers – some of which wrongly cite Oct. 5th as a registration deadline, when in fact the correct date is Oct. 10th – a honest mistake.
            "We have identified a few minor administrative errors in our mailers and some old information in our data, and we'll be addressing those,” said Donald Bryson, AFP-NC executive director. “Any large mailing even with 99.9% accuracy is going to have a few inaccurate recipients.”
            Bryson continued, “"Here at AFPF we know that voting is a civic duty of paramount importance and that our political process is stronger when more people cast their ballots. We are entirely committed to encouraging more and more citizens to participate in our democracy by helping them register to vote."
         The state Board of Elections, which is now run by Republicans, is required to investigate, and NCDP Executive Director Mann lodged the formal complaint Monday, charging that among other things, the AFP-NC Foundation mailings are an attempt at “voter suppression.”
            “[The AFPF mailers] …reflects a decision to attempt to utilize misleading, incorrect and confusing voter registration mailers as a means of discouraging or intimidating voters in the 2014 General Election,” Mann wrote to Kim Strach, Executive Director of the NC Board of Elections.
            Mann raised the possibility of the AFPF mailers to be a deliberate attempt to violate North Carolina state laws governing elections. State law classified such violations as a Class I Felony.
            “I respectfully request that the State Board of Elections open an immediate investigation, and if proper, turn the matter over to the Wake County District Attorney for prosecution,” Mann concluded her complaint.
            Willie Fleming, president of the African-American Caucus of the NC Democratic Party, echoed the party executive director’s sentiments.
            “The African-American Caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party is appalled by the actions of North Carolina’s GOP, but is committed to making sure the hoax of voter fraud never actually occurs,” Fleming said. “The GOP is determined to make Democratic victories look tainted, when it is AFP lying to citizens trying to create voter fraud.”
“The AAC-NCDP stands with NCDP in asking the GOP to not only play by the rules, but stop misleading North Carolinia’s voters. AFP’s decision to induce voter fraud shows the GOP’s chief benefactor is willing to lie to Republicans to keep wealth and privilege in the hands of a few while making-up falsehoods to produce said results. It’s disgusting and dramatic, but AFP has truly crossed a line in all North Carolina communities with the intention of somehow blaming others.”

                             US ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER


Editor’s Note – On Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014, after six years in office, and over 40 years of public service in the criminal justice arena, US Attorney General Eric Holder, with Pres. Barack Obama at his side, announced that he would be stepping down. As the first African-American US attorney general, Holder is credited with reinvigorating the Civil Rights Division, standing up for voting rights, and paying particular attention to police brutality.
            These were his remarks.
I come to this moment with very mixed emotions.  Proud of what the men and women of the Department of Justice have accomplished over the last six years and, at the same time, very sad that I will not be a formal part of the great things that this department and this President will accomplish over the next two.
I want to thank you, Mr. President, for the opportunity you gave me to serve and for giving me the greatest honor of my professional life.  We have been great colleagues, but the bonds between us are much deeper than that.  In good times and bad, in things personal and professional, you have been there for me.  I am proud to call you my friend.  I am also grateful for the support you have given me and the department as we have made real the visions that you and I have always shared.  I often think of those early talks between us and our belief that we might help to craft a more perfect Union.  Work remains to be done – but our list of accomplishments is real.  Over the last six years, our Administration has made historic gains in realizing the principles of the founding documents, and fought to protect the most sacred of American rights: the right to vote.  We have begun to realize the promise of equality for our LGBT brothers and sisters and their families.  We have begun to significantly reform our criminal justice system and reconnect those who bravely serve in law enforcement with the communities they protect.  We have kept faith with our belief in the power of the greatest judicial system the world has ever known to fairly and effectively adjudicate any cases that are brought before it, including those that involve the security of the nation we both love so dearly.  We have taken steps to protect the environment and make more fair the rules by which our commercial enterprises operate.  And we have held accountable those who would harm the American people either through violent means or the misuse of economic or political power.
I have loved the Department of Justice ever since, as a young boy, I watched Robert Kennedy prove during the Civil Rights Movement how the department can – and must – always be a force for that which is right.  I hope that I have done honor to the faith you placed in me, Mr. President, and to the legacy of all those that served before me.
I would also like to thank the Vice President, who I have known for so many years and in whom I have found great wisdom, unwavering support, and a shared vision of what America can, and should, be.  I want to recognize my good friend Valerie Jarrett, whom I’ve been fortunate to work with from the beginning of what started as an improbable, idealistic effort by a young senator from Illinois who we were both right to believe would achieve greatness.  I have had the opportunity to serve in your distinguished Cabinet and worked with a White House staff, ably led by Denis McDonough, that has done much to make real the promise of our democracy.  And each of the men and women who I have come to know will be lifelong friends.
Whatever my accomplishments, they could not have been achieved without the love, support, and guidance of two people who are not with me today.  My parents, Eric and Miriam Holder, nurtured me and my accomplished brother William and made us believe in the value of individual effort and the greatness of this nation. 
My time in public service, which now comes to an end, would not have been possible without the sacrifices – too often unfair – made by the best three kids a father could ask for.  Thank you, Maya, Brooke, and Buddy. 
And finally I want to thank the woman who sacrificed the most and allowed me to follow my dreams.  She is the foundation of all that our family is and the basis of all that I have become.  My wife, Sharon, is the unsung hero and my life partner.  Thank you for all that you have done.  I love you.
In the months ahead, I will leave the Department of Justice – but I will never leave the work.  I will continue to serve and try to find ways to make our nation even more true to its founding ideals.  I thank the dedicated public servants who form the backbone of the United States Department of Justice for their tireless work over the past six years, for the efforts they will continue, and for the progress they made that will outlast us all.

And I thank you all for joining me on a journey that now moves in another direction, but that will always be guided by the pursuit of justice and aimed at the North Star.   


            [BLADENBORO] With over 200 people there, the NCNAACP gathered First Baptist Church Monday evening, asking for tips in the hanging death of high school student Lennon Lacy. As The Carolinian was first to report, Lacy’s body was found hanging by the neck from a swing set at a mobile home park on August 29th. Lacy’s family says authorities suspect suicide, which those who knew the young man don’t believe. Rev. William Barber, president of the NCNAACP, says he has spoken with Bladen county District Attorney Jon David, and says its essential that members of the community come forward with any tip and information they have to solve the case.

            [GREENSBORO] The African-American non-Hispanic population of North Carolina registered 12.5 per 1,000live births - a decrease of 10.1 percent - the lowest infant mortality rate in state history in 2013, according to officials with the Public Health Division of the NC Department of Health and Human Services. Still, black infants in the state are 2.3 times more likely to die than their white non-Hispanic counterparts. Overall, researchers say North Carolina’s infant mortality rate dropped to 7.0 per 1,000 live births, the lowest it’s been in three years.

            [CHARLOTTE] According to a study by a personal finance website, North Carolina gets an absolute failing grade when it comes to public education and teacher retention. Based of statistics compiled from the National Center for Education Statistics, the US Census Bureau and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, among other sources, the website Wallethub determined that North Carolina ranked poorly in public school funding per student; teacher wage disparity, school safety and median annual salary. Republican lawmakers blame previous Democratic administrations, but observers counter that the GOP-led General Assembly is responsible for the bad numbers, based on their slashing the budget for public education statewide, and manipulating teacher pay.



            With a new month comes new bus fares for Capital Area Transit buses in Raleigh. To ride a CAT bus will now cost $1.25, twenty-five cents more. A Day Pass is now $2.50, an additional fifty cents; and say so long to the old five-day pass, because there is now a new seven-day pass for $12.00.  Passengers age 12 and under, and elderly riders 65 and older still ride for free on the buses, and there are discount rates for the disabled and young people with ID (age 13 to 18). There will now also be CAT bus service on major holidays, and service on the South Saunders and WakeMed routes will increase.

            Students and faculty members in the Saint Augustine’s University family mourned the untimely death of Falcon football player Matthew Mangram Monday. The 20-year-old junior offensive lineman and Criminal Justice major was killed in a car accident near his hometown of Darien, Ga. A noontime memorial service was held in the campus chapel later that day.  "It is always hard and difficult to lose a family member, but to lose a young man in the prime of his life like Matthew, who was an honor student and starter on the football team, is almost unspeakable," Athletic Director George “Pup” Williams said in a statement.

            Approximately 20 percent of teachers in Durham Public Schools leave the classroom annually, the source of an alarming turnover rate that the Durham Board of Education decided last week it must address. A new plan was unveiled that promises to add 20 new mentors for the school system’s 600 rookie teachers, giving them the added support and guidance they need to make it through their tough first years. The board also moved to address the high number of principals throughout the system who are retiring, adopting a strategy to also mentor new principals. The cost of both programs will over $660,000, but the board believes the investment to retain good teachers and principal is worth it, officials say.


Approximately 213 Qualify Under Eugenics Compensation Program, Initial Determinations Continue
RALEIGH – October 1, 2014
As of September 30, 2014, the Office for Justice of Sterilization Victims has forwarded 786 claim forms from potential Eugenics Board sterilization victims to the Industrial Commission. This number is the final count of all claim forms received by the Office. To date, the Commission has issued initial determination orders on 731 claims.  Approximately 213 claims have qualified for compensation under the Eugenics Compensation Program.
The victims of North Carolina’s 1933 Eugenics Board Program had until June 30, 2014 to submit a claim form to the Office for Justice of Sterilization Victims to be considered to receive compensation under the Eugenics Compensation Program.  From 2010 to present, the Department of Administration worked first to identify sterilization victims through the former NC Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation, and later to promote the Eugenics Compensation Program under the Office for Justice of Sterilization Victims. 176 living victims were identified as of early 2013 through the Foundation’s efforts.
Beginning November 2013, the Office for Justice of Sterilization Victims began promoting the compensation program and providing notice of the June 30, 2014 deadline.  The Office sent more than 1,500 direct mail pieces to identified potential victims, placed and responded to hundreds of telephone calls and conducted media interviews on television, radio and print. In addition, the Office has partnered on general outreach with state agencies such as DHHS, DMV, Council for Women, Commission of Indian Affairs, Human Relations Commission, Governor’s Office of Community and Constituent Affairs, and the UNC Center for Civil Rights.  

Fraternities Collaborate to Save Young Men
 Special to The Carolinian
Over one month has passed since the widely publicized shooting of Michael Brown, but the echoes of that shooting still ring for four local fraternities.  These organizations are concerned about the increasing accounts of police brutality, school drop-out and incarceration rates and other causes that disproportionately affect the quality of life of black youth.    
Collegiate Black Fraternities and their membership have historically been a determining factor to lead many of the achievements in advancing opportunities for people of color.    Local chapters, including Phi Lambda of Alpha Phi Alpha, Iota Iota of Omega Psi Phi, Raleigh Alumni of Kappa Alpha Psi and Eta Sigma of Phi Beta Sigma, vow to continue the legacy of leadership and service in Wake County.   We are not waiting for another tragedy or another group to step up and fix this situation or other challenges in our community; we are going to handle this ourselves” says Glenn Thomas, president (Basileus) of Iota Iota Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated.

These great organizations are collaborating to create sustainable solutions that ensure the educational, social and academic development of young men in Wake County.  The fraternities agreed to jointly host a series of events that promote the success of youth in communities throughout Wake County. The first activity, slated to be a community forum, will not only address issues facing youth, but also serve as a resource to provide residents with information on youth engagement opportunities.  The forum will also highlight the individual programs for youth that each fraternity provides to the community. 
“We have always individually worked to help our youth, now we have a platform to provide support to young men in our community on a larger level remarked president (Polemarch) Christopher Young of the Raleigh Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi.  “With the state of African American youth, we felt that the issues are so large that it will take the collective efforts of all Black Greek Letter Organizations thinking together and working together to solve problems in our community” says president Kengie Bass of the Phi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated.
