Money Talks

Rakevion White, 21, spoke to reporters after a meeting between his civil rights representatives and the Breakfast Club's leadership team on Nov. 13, 2019.

Locals  (Phoenix/Mesa, Arizona): Please boycott the Breakfast Club in Phoenix. A young man had the “n word” written on his ticket by a coworker. The owner says it was just a joke and no one has been held accountable. In fact, this young man, Rakevion White, has had his hours cut with no explanation.

Money talks. Take your business elsewhere.

Good Company

The great majority of teachers are exceptional people.

 

And then there are these bigots (who ought to lose their jobs):

13% of their student body is Latin-American. Idaho needs to do better for the children.
