Community Denounces Gipson’s Hate Speech Tactics in 64th District Assembly Race

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

WE ARE URGING ALL OFFICIALS, CLERGY, UNION AND COMMUNITY LEADERS TO DENOUNCE THE TACTICS USED BY MIKE GIPSON AND HIS CAMPAIGN STAFF:

1. ATTEND THE PRESS CONFERENCE

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 11AM

Mount Moriah Baptist Church, 4269 South Figueroa, Los Angeles, 90037

2. WITHDRAW ENDORSEMENTS AND FUNDING FROM THE GIPSON CAMPAIGN, UNTIL A FULL INVESTIGATION IS COMPLETED.

3.  ISSUE A STATEMENT that the dehumanization, discrimination and exclusion of people from community, housing, employment or politics based on past convictions will not be tolerated.  Such tactics recycle the same “divide and conquer,” plantation politics that have destroyed lives and communities for 500 years on this continent.   Law enforcement officials must also make it clear that such actions violate the oath and ethical standards of police officers that are sworn to uphold the law and not engage in deceitful and discriminatory behavior.

TO MIKE GIPSON:

Despite what you think and say, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE CONVICTED OF CRIMES DO A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS IN OUR COMMUNITIES.
