MCAD Chairman Rules Against Parting Ways Group

Burial site of four black Revolutionary War soldiers in Plymouth.

The Chairman of the Mass. Commission Against Discrimination has rejected an appeal charging that the town of Plymouth discriminated against a citizens group seeking to honor four black Revolutionary War solidiers. 

The Parting Ways Committee wants the town to honor the four patriots from Plymouth in a way similar to other historic attractions in that community. 

A New Bedford man, Eddie Johnson is a member of the committee, and believes Chairman Julian Tynes ignored credible evidence in making the decision.  Johnson tells WBSM News, he’s asking two state lawmakers for help.

Johnson says the Parting Ways group will appeal Tynes’ decision to Superior Court and Attorney General Martha Coakley. 

He also  thinks all three MCAD Commissioners should have ruled on the appeal, not just the Chairman.
