Project to write corporations who donate to the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) now underway, dossier on the SCV scheduled to be published this week. UPDATE: Published UPDATE2: SCV dumped.

My dossier on the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) is scheduled to be published on July 25th this coming week. I will have a blog on it with the guest pass URL for readers. There might possibly be a delay of a week in publishing, but currently that is the schedule.

Next weekend I am writing 46 corporations and individuals asking them to stop supporting the SCV with donations. I have already gotten names, addresses, and assembled the mailing materials. Each CEO will get a copy of the article scheduled to be published.

You can read about how corporations donate money to the SCV at a previous blog posting.

The draft of the letter that is being sent to them is at this blog posting:

The article that is going to be mailed to them has been published:

For some reason Taio Cruz's song "Dynamite" with its line "I am wearing all my favorite brands, brands, brands, brands," is running through my head after typing this list. I wonder if Mr. Cruz and his fans would consider the Confederacy one of their favorite, "brands, brands, brands, brands." I doubt it. In fact a lot of brands probably don't want to be associated with the Confederacy in the public mind.

UPDATE 2: has dumped the SCV. Technically the page is still up, but there are no companies listed. Total victory.

The companies are:

Alamo Rent A Car (They advertised in the Confederate Veteran)
Apple Store
AT&T Wireless
Banana Republic
Barneys New York
Bed Bath & Beyond
Ghiradelli Chocolate
Giorgio Armani Beauty
Godiva Chocolatier
Jessica Simpson
Jos. A. Bank
Lancome Paris
Lindt Chocolate
NASCAR Superstore
Old Navy
Oscar de la Renta
Ralph Lauren
Saks Fifth Avenue
Sesame Street
Sports Authority
True Religion Apparel
Urban Outfitters
Vichy Laboratories
Wedgwood Waterford PLC
