[Charlotte Mayor] Cannon works to help blacks, but 'stomps' rights of whites


Letter to the Editor in today’s Charlotte Observer.

As an American Renaissance attendee and repeat visitor to Charlotte, I was dismayed to learn that Charlotte Mayor Pro Tem Patrick Cannon has used his position to pressure private businesses into refusing to host this conference.

Mr. Cannon is a member of the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Black Political Caucus, Omega Psi Phi fraternity and a life member of NAACP.

He has spent much of his professional life serving the interests of blacks and dividing people along racial lines.

It’s hypocritical for him to work to prevent whites from meeting privately to discuss issues of importance to them. It’s despicable and immoral that he is using his office to stomp on rights of free speech and association.
