No apologies from Call & Post:

When Don King purchased the Call & Post, his one demand to both editorial and administrative staff was that the rights of Black people be protected. We have adhered to that demand.

This newspaper stands by the front-page editorial and all of its ramifications.

So what about the rights of African-Americans who voted FOR issue 6, like Senator Turner?  Are they, too, nothing more than a collection of Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas?  Call & Post, apparently, says “yes.”  But what about their rights?

And yet, nobody has pointed out to me how Issue 5 would have benefited the African-American community… because no such provision existed.
