Oct. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- What: In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work to promote respect and diversity appreciation, a call to action press conference will be held to address U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn’s unacceptable tar baby racial insult against the president and all humanity.  

Who:  Tammie Lang Campbell, founder/executive director of the Honey Brown Hope Foundation, who buried the n-word on 07/07/07 (burial featured on CNN), is headed to Washington, D.C. to confront Colorado Springs’ U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) regarding his racial rant.  Although tar baby has been used as an insult to black people since the 1880s, U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn said that he didn’t know that it is a racial slur.

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Houston) said Obama has been targeted unlike any other president.

"I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one," said Jackson Lee from the House floor. "Read between the lines," she continued. "What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment that is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?"

WHERE:  Capitol Hill (Washington, DC 20515) | Official Location To Be Announced

WHEN:  Friday, October 14, 2011 at 12:45 p.m.

WHY: RESPECT is a core value that every elected official in America should demonstrate for self and others. On behalf of the descent citizens of America, a clear message will be sent to U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn that ignorance is no defense for racism.  

PARTICIPANTS:  Tammie Lang Campbell, founder/executive director of Honey Brown Hope Foundation along with concerned citizens
