STACY SWIMP SAYS “JIM CROW MUST GO!”

Jim Crow was a series of “anti-Black laws” after the Civl War.  Another term used was “Black Codes”.

The term Black Codes refers to legislation passed by Southern states at the end of the Civil War to control the labor, migration and other activities of newly-freed slaves.

The Davis-Bacon Act, which required that federal construction contractors pay their workers “prevailing wages,” was passed by Congress in 1931 with the intent of favoring white workers who belonged to white-only unions over non-unionized black workers.

It was and remains a Black Code. A Jim Crow in the 21st Century.

The act continues to have discriminatory effects today by favoring disproportionately white, skilled and unionized construction workers over disproportionately black, unskilled and non-unionized construction workers. Because Davis-Bacon was passed with discriminatory intent and continues to have discriminatory effects, its enforcement violates the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection of the law.

Stacy Swimp is calling for an end to this Jim Crow Law: The Davis Bacon Act.  See his video below:
