Captains of American industry -- multimillionaires and billionaires who own NFL franchises -- acted with the greatest of ease to discriminate against Limbaugh based only on allegations from those who hate him.

One of the owners vocal against Limbaugh was Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons. Blank is a billionaire who co-founded Home Depot.

Blank's family foundation makes contributions to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood was founded by eugenicist and racist Margaret Sanger and is the number one killer of unborn black children in the nation. A few years ago Planned Parenthood workers were recorded agreeing to earmark someone's contributions for only black abortions.

In my view, Blank's support of Planned Parenthood is infinitely more damaging to America's black community than any off-handed remark made by Rush Limbaugh. Should Blank be forced to divest his ownership in the Falcons?

American businessmen should be the first defenders of the principles of our free society. Sadly, few even seem to know what they are, let alone defend them.

America's largest corporations funnel millions every year to Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and black left wing organizations that promote moral relativism and socialism.

Its no wonder that so many Americans sense today that American greatness is becoming a relic of history.
