This is what the Des Moines Register came up with to tell us about the civil rights crisis in Iowa:
In 2003, Shade alleged that a recruiter with the Girl Scouts of Moingona Council of Des Moines discriminated against her granddaughter, Brianna , because she is black. Shade's complaint says the recruiter repeatedly ignored the black family to attend to whites. Her case languished for nearly two years at the Des Moines commission, which she described as a "farce" and a "waste."What's the answer you ask...?
I don't know... maybe more public funding? Whatever it costs. We can't let these atrocities stand.
If a complaint against the Girl Scouts is all the DMR can come up with, more than anything else the article tells me that we've made trememdous progress in this country over the last 40 years.
And this was their headline front page story. Yeech.
