Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), understands the formula for success. Individuals, regardless of race or sex, increase their chances of success in life by graduating from high school, working full time, and waiting until marriage before having children. This is common-sense advice. But these days, it’s political heresy.
Star decided to sponsor a billboard campaign in various cities with the “Success Sequence” message to finish school, take any job, get married, save and invest, and give back to your neighborhood. This sequence is what people can do, without government help, to improve their own lives.
Unfortunately, the company that produced and erected the billboards was intimidated by the leftist mob into throwing Star and CURE under the bus and removing the billboards.
Star recently appeared on FOX News to discuss the issue.
Clear Channel claimed the billboard ads didn’t receive proper approval, although the company helped design the ads. Is Black Lives Matter now going to demand that every advertising agency, every company, vet information through them? Star said she asked Clear Channel what was offensive about the message. Young people caught in the midst of all the violence need this message, she said. Clear Channel is in breach of contract, and Black Lives Matter should not get away with forcing a major company to breach a contract.
