I am about to reveal to you a shocking truth.
Why would people re-elect Jennifer Granholm in Detroit when we do not believe in this mess. She is working for Jon Stryker NOT the people of Michigan. This man is pushing for homosexuality in the classrooms and is trying to eliminate educational choices for our children and parents.
- 428th richest person in the world and third richest in Michigan;
- Worth an estimated 2.1 billion dollars;
- Contributor to organizations critical of the Pope and fighting to overturn state laws preserving traditional marriage, advocates abortion and challenges “abstinence until marriage” sex education in public schools.
- He controls 30% of his family company with his sisters, Pat & Ronda, who also rank among the richest individuals in the world.
TAKE OVER OF COLORADO PUBLIC POLICY
Stryker’s family led the Democratic takeover of the Colorado legislature in 2004 by pumping $1.4 million into state House and Senate races. Some of the stated reasons for funding the Democratic takeover included Republican spending restrictions and attempts to “ban discussion of homosexuality in classrooms…” This is the first time in decades that Democrats control the legislature. Once in power, they led the fight to stop the return of “several billion dollars” to tax payers. Instead, the legislature spent it. And in 2006? “Most of the funding for the Democratic 527s this year is expected to come from Stryker…(and others)”. (Rocky Mountain News, 9/06)
The Stryker family also spent “a record $3 million in 2002 to defeat an English-only initiative…” in Colorado.
THE ARCUS FOUNDATION
Set up by Jon Stryker in 2000, the Arcus Foundation contributes to:
$60,000 over three years for general operations support. The Triangle Foundation is a statewide civil rights, advocacy and anti-violence organization serving the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) and allied communities.
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan
$100,000 over two years in support of the GLBT Project in Michigan, a legal resource for Michigan’s GLBT community working in the areas of marriage and adoption, schools and youth, transgender rights, equality in the workplace, civil rights protections and law enforcement.
Planned Parenthood of South Central Michigan
$200,000 for the "Building for Tomorrow" capital campaign for this leading advocate of reproductive rights and accurate sexuality information and education.
Swartz Creek, Michigan
$10,000 for education and advocacy combating the problems faced by homeless transgender persons.
Third Level Crisis Intervention
Traverse City, Michigan
$17,000 in matching funds in support of LGBTQ youth and diversity activities and services.
Fair Housing Center of Southwest Michigan
$35,000 in general operating funds to develop a state-level strategy to include "gender identity and sexual orientation" as protected characteristics against discrimination within the Michigan Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act; and work at the local level to reduce segregated housing patterns throughout Kalamazoo.
Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) – Southwest Michigan Chapter
$9,300 for a Bridging Event, co-sponsored by the Kalamazoo Gay/Lesbian Resource Center and Kalamazoo Public Library in the fall of 2006, to strengthen community understanding and promote racial justice.
Over the years, ARCUS and Stryker have spent millions supporting benefits for same-sex couples, special rights to allow Gay couples to adopt, and efforts to get pro-homosexual courses included in elementary school curricula.

This was a skillful plot to take control of both chambers of government in Michigan. Stryker and Granholm succeeded in taking the House. They successfully duped Black people into voting Democratic. I still cannot find one Black person to give me a intelligent reason why they voted Granholm.
Further proof that Stryker is for the LGBT community and can care less about African Americans:
This is the reason why Granholm did not have an urban agenda but she is the author of pushing Cool Cities in Michigan. These are GAY hubs people. Meanwhile, Detroit can receive a "cool city" grant BUT not be considered as a cool city until it becomes more tolerant of the LGBT community.
This man pulled a fast one on everyone. He hid behind the Affirmative Action dilemma and pushed his candidates right into office. Think I'm joking take a look at this:

Stryker wanted to see Affrimative Action go. LOOK AT HIS HOME COUNTY KALAMAZOO for God sake. And Granholm has not gone public on this issue as well. She stated all along that she was for Affirmaitve Action and the very counties that voted for her were AGAINST Affirmative Action. She has not made a statement since. Nor has Jon Stryker.
This is a plot to undermine the intelligence of Black people in the urban communites here in Michigan. They have no use for us and while Blacks did a very poor job in educating themselves on DeVos we are really up the creek.
Unless we build a One Network that will keep us rooted based on our values, education and motives.
