What's this blog really about?

You may notice a variety of topics here - from business, to charity promotion, even to local news, but the primary reason this blog was created was to alert readers to the hostile atmosphere and sexual harassment at The Danville Register & Bee. The readers and creator of this blog want a FULL FRONT PAGE apology in the Danville Register & Bee, plus the disciplining of those individuals involved. Until then, we'll continue to post regular updates. To tolerate THIS kind of behavior by a major media network is intolerable. And this isn't just ONE instance. Media General has been sued nationwide for racism and sexism, yet they CONTINUE to keep the offenders employed. Why? And why am I doing this? TRUTH compels me.

NAACP resolves to stop bullying

"NAACP resolves to seek anti-bullying legislation – The 2008 Annual
Convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
offers up the following resolution in their blog:

15. Workplace Bullying Resolved: That NAACP Units at all levels will
seek legislation at all appropriate levels to deem workplace bullying

If the NAACP can distinguish between racial discrimination and status-blind
workplace bullying, we may be starting to really get somewhere with this
movement. This is a very important symbolic step. This helps the anti-bullying movement to characterize itself as a civil rights cause.

Most workers are helpless because they don't know anything about employment law, but how many of us do? While there is no direct law at this time for bullies at work, they can still take action on their own by downloading a new ebook called Work Laws Exposed. Written by an employment law attorney championing the fight for US workers, it clearly explains exactly how to end not only bullying, but other workplace problems. It's a must read for any employee. I wish I had this information when I was still working. -Kiki
