- Coca-Cola is a major sponsor of SCLC; Vick has an endorsement contract with Coke
- The Home Depot is a major sponsor of SCLC; co-founder of the The Home Depot, Arthur Blank is also owner of The Atlanta Falcons
Why doesn't the SCLC honor or support a truly deserving person, rather than defending one that has not presented himself in any way as being of importance in effecting either civil or human rights? Because the SCLC (and the Atlanta & Georgia NAACP) decided to ride the bandwagon that will lead to national media attention.
The SCLC's actions are representative of an increasing culture among powerful Americans that consciously choose to rank ethics second to the media. They deserve to be in The Dog House.
