And they are still racist today.

I ran across this today:


http://www.unionfacts.com/crime-corruption/discrimination-by-unions


The Davis-Bacon Act was passed by Congress in [1931] with the strong support of labor unions. The Act requires construction firms contracting for the federal government to pay their workers "locally prevailing wages," and it was passed by lawmakers with the explicit intention of keeping low-skilled African-American workers out of federal construction projects. American Federation of Labor (the "AFL" of today's AFL-CIO) president William Green testified that "colored labor is being sought to demoralize wage rates."

In 1999, Harry Alford, president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce testified before Congress on the "racist roots" of the Davis-Bacon Act. Here are some notable statements from his testimony:


- "The exclusivity effect of Davis-Bacon requirements encourages the construction trades to continue its activity of discrimination against African-American labor. Locally, regionally and nationally construction trades under-represent the African-American population. Go to any city or look at any major project and you will find a great disparity against African-American labor."


- "Let us look at a few examples. The City of Detroit has embarked on a major construction expansion including a new football stadium and a new major league baseball park -- across the street from each other. Even though the City of Detroit has a population that is 77 percent Black, these two projects which have been declared 'union only' will, at best, average no more than 15 percent African American participation in the workforce. This is a disaster!"


- "What is worse is that this paltry performance is going to exhaust the entire Detroit marketplace of Black union craftsmen. The other 'union only' or Davis-Bacon projects concurrently taking place will be virtually void of black employment in a city that is 77 percent black"


- "Travel to Indianapolis where still, as of two days ago, they have segregated union halls. Go to the 'black union hall' for cement workers on 1502 Martin Luther King Ave. If you want white workers visit the 'white union hall' on North Sherman Ave. The same is for carpenters. Go to the hall on east 38th street for black workers and visit the hall on south Madison for white workers."


The AFL-CIO still fights to preserve the Davis-Bacon Act. [Read Mr. Alford's full testimony]

Cal is just playing ostrich.  We can show him pictures and actual footage and he can't see it.  Even with the SEIU co-sponsors such a rally and their leaders espouse Marxist doctrine, Cal will say it's not true.  Cal thinks that the truth about these socialist orgainizations is just us trying to smear instead of exposing the truth.

Sounds like when Obama says X and then he tries to vilify people for replaying his own words.


If I am playing ostrich about red influence amongst the unions, then what are you playing in regards to white supremacists influence amongst Tea Party members?

The history of unions in this country covers a wide spectrum. Yes, there were instances of racism among early union organizers. Today, many unions are at the forefront of fighting workplace racism. Anybody familiar with farm worker union organizing here in California knows how unions morphed from essentially racist organizations to organizations that promoted class solidarity over racists divisions in the work force. Look at how Filipinos and Hispanics learned to work together toward a common cause. Look at how white activists learned to promote outreach into that same farmworker community.


California is now one of the most diverse states in the union. We are the first state in which no racial group composes more than fifty percent of the population. We still have stratification in the work force along racial and ethnic lines, but we also have second generation workers becoming professionals in virtually all fields of human endeavor. Our last governor was an immigrant to this country, and our current governor has a long history of supporting farm worker rights, particularly the right to organize unions. Unions and the promotion of racial diversity can and do go together.

White supremacists aren't influencing the Tea Party, and you know it.  This is why Tea Party favorites include LTCOL Alan West and Herman Cain.


But there the progressives go again - calling those that believe in the Constitution as racist...  Why aren't we shocked?

...and Marxists-Leninists aren't influencing the unions and you know it. There you go again, calling anybody that disagrees with you a Communist. Channeling Joseph McCarthy again I see.

Way too much information proving that unions are working with Marxists/communists.  Andy Stern, Richard Trumka, etc.  I'm not saying that all union members are communist or even know that their unions support it at the highest levels, but that doesn't mean that it's not happening.  The majority of everyday working union members, many of whom were forced to join, have no idea how radical and anti-American labor unions have become.


The May Day (aka "Communist Day") rally was Co-sponsored by unions & communists - they have the same agenda.


Even last December when Connecticut AFL-CIO head John Olsen gladly accepted the award from the CPUSA, but garnered “loud applause” when he said he stands with CPUSA.

  I don't know Cal when we have photo evidence of communist symbols at union rallys does make it seem that the unions are more infulence by communist as opposed to the real lack of white-supremist symbols at tea party rallies.

If it was an isolated event, or one or two communists at a union event, Cal might have a point, but it's not - it's all over the place.
