It won't work. No one's been fooled here. ‚Üí Yesterday, Governor Cooper pushed a sham deal that doubles down on discrimination and changed HB2 only "in name but not in substance, hoping to assuage organizations and employers that have boycotted the state to protest its discriminatory law." …

"It's a misnomer to call the new measure a 'repeal' of H.B. 2. It's really more of a replacement or renaming, as the new law doesn't differ substantially from its predecessor… You can vote to 'repeal' H.B. 2 all the way to kingdom come, but it makes no difference if the discriminatory provisions remain essentially the same, which is the case." – Steven Petrow , Washington Post

Opinion | You can't compromise on civil rights. But North Carolina just did.

In a shocking betrayal of the LGBTQ community, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper today signed into law a measure he falsely and brazenly touted as a of the discriminatory HB2.

We call on the NCAA to oppose this shameful HB2.0 bill in North Carolina, and not to reward lawmakers who have passed this so-called which is an affront to the values we all hold.

This bill is anti-worker, anti-access to the courts, and anti-LGBTQ. It violates all basic principles of diversity, inclusion and basic civil rights. Fundamentally, any moratorium on civil rights is not a compromise, it is a contradiction with the principle of equal protection under the law and our moral values.

After more than a year of inaction, today North Carolina lawmakers doubled-down on discrimination. This new law does not repeal HB2. Instead, it institutes a statewide prohibition on equality by banning non-discrimination protections across North Carolina and fuels the flames of anti-transgender hate.

Each and every lawmaker who supported this bill has betrayed the LGBTQ community. HRC will explore every legal action to combat this dangerous legislation, and we urge all businesses, sports leagues and entertainers who have fought against HB2 to continue standing strong with the LGBTQ community attacked by this hateful law. …

MUST READ via the The Charlotte Observer :

"Legislators and Gov. Roy Cooper hailed Thursday's HB2 repeal bill as a compromise. In fact, it is nothing of the kind. It is a betrayal of the promises the governor made to the LGBT community and a doubling down on discrimination by Republican legislators who have backed it all along.

House Bill 142 literally does not do one thing to protect the LGBT community and locks in HB2's most basic and offensive provision. It repeals HB2 in name only and will not satisfy any business or organization that is truly intolerant of an anti-gay environment and of a state that codifies discrimination." …
