When Did Civil Rights Become Un-American?

The Missouri Legislature is on the verge of gutting civil rights statutes. The majority party has been trying to look out only for the "big" guy ( read: corporations)!instead of the "little" guy for ten years. Lower verdicts, higher standards of proof, anything to protect businesses that discriminate. This year, chances for a veto are slim. Sigh.   When did it become popular to be mean and heartless?

If you are being sexually harassed at work, or discriminated against because of your religion, race, age, gender or disability, you better complain soon. Time is running out before your Rights are extremely curtailed.

I don't know what to say, except contact your legislators if you disagree with SB43 or whatever else is thrown at regular workers. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "the arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice."  That is no consolation to the woman fired because she is pregnant.
