Mr. Neas, executive director of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and self-professed liberal Republican, spoke at a conference on urban affairs sponsored by the Ripon Educational Fund at Howard University in Washington, DC. Mr. Neas spoke on civil rights legislation currently before Congress, the leadership on civil rights shown by the Bush administration, and recent decisions by the Supreme Court. He said the Bush administration showed a lack of leadership in civil rights legislation, continuing the legacy of the Reagan administration in using quotas as a smokescreen to the hinder the advancement of civil rights. He also said the Supreme Court is now the gravest threat to civil rights and civil liberties in the United States, particularly after several decisions made in June of 1989. close
