Is CORE fighting for the poor or Big Oil?

UPDATE: Heard through the grapevine that CORE will be on the Canadian CBC show, the Current tomorrow morning. We've contacted the producers and have offered to provide more information.

With major corporate donations in the past from big players like Monsanto and ExxonMobil, I apologize for being more than a little cynical about the Congress of Racial Equality's latest “Stop the War on the Poor” campaign.

To say the CORE has enjoyed a cozy relationship with big industry would be an understatement. In fact, the above photo is a picture of Monsanto's Chairman and CEO, Hugh Grant chairing CORE's celebratory reception in honor of Martin Luther King Jr in 2005.

Congress of Racial Equality (CORE)


The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was founded by civil rights activist James Farmer in 1942 and was originally a leading civil rights organization that later aligned itself with conservative and anti-environmental groups.
