On Juneteenth, let’s reconsider the NAACP and its goals

The NAACP has evolved into a Political Action Committee driven by the agenda of the democratic party. It is time they were recognized as such.

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2015 – The responses of the NAACP to the situation with Rachel Dolezal and other race issues in America show that the group has lost its founding mandate. The NAACP, founded in 1909, was originally established to help black people find new opportunities in education, work and family unity.

Today the NAACP operates as little more than a political action committee fronting for the Democratic National Committee. It guilts corporations and others into donations and support, challenging anyone who refuses with accusations of racism.

At its worst, the NAACP is a shakedown racket that uses the same playbook as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Jesse Jackson Jr. On the local level, NAACP  dinners provide a cover for liberal democratic politicians to attend one event every year and continue policies that deny education and opportunity to black communities.

Pastors C.L Bryant (Rev. C.L. Bryant on Converting to Conservatism: ‘As a Black American, You’d Be Nuts Not to Be a Republican’ – The Blaze) and Manual Sykes are just two black leaders that have left the NAACP because of its duplicity.

Despite the flurry of condemnation, Rachel Dolezal is the perfect face for the NAACP. While embracing black culture and championing fellow Americans is a noble cause, Dolezal chose to fake who she actually is. This reflects the situation with the NAACP, which has been faking it for the last 50 yeas.

Even in the early days of the civil rights movement, the NAACP faked it. When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. asked the NAACP for assistance in June 1963 for the March on Washington, the NAACP balked. Instead, Dr. King worked with the Student Non Violent Coordinating Committee, the Congress of Racial Equality and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to make the the historic event happen.

Only after the March on Washington was a done deal did the NAACP hop on the bandwagon to freedom.

Another perfect example of the two faces of the NAACP is its relationship with former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Donald Sterling. The NAACP accepted millions of dollars from Sterling, deliberately ignoring the fact that he operated substandard housing for minorities.

Problems with NAACP leadership are not new. In 1994, the board of the NAACP dismissed executive director Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. for actions “inimical” to the best interests of the group. The group took the action after it was disclosed that Chavis paid more than $300,000 to a former employee to forestall a lawsuit alleging sexual misconduct by Chavis. Chavis made the payment without the knowledge of the board or other NAACP leadership.

Then there is Leon Jenkins, the president of the Los Angeles chapter, who resigned over the Sterling situation. Jenkins was a former Detroit judge, who had been indicted on federal bribery, conspiracy, mail fraud and racketeering charges, according to records from the State Bar of California. The records show that Jenkins received gifts from those who appeared in his court and committed perjury. He was acquitted of criminal charges, but was disbarred after the Michigan Supreme Court found “overwhelming evidence” that Jenkins “sold his office and his public trust.”

The NAACP represents positions detrimental to black Americans, including opposition to traditional marriage and opposition to school choice and the Second Amendment.

There are many people who want to work for a better America and hope the NAACP can help them achieve this goal. Unfortunately, that organization no longer exists.

Instead, it is a Democratic Political Action Committee and should just admit its true purpose.

There are organizations more in line with the goals of advancing the faith and politics of black America. Consider CORE led by Niger Innes, The Black American’s Political Action Committee or Blakpac, which this writer heads.

These organizations are fighting for Black America, not against it. We are promoting conservative values that save families and political solutions that create businesses and jobs.

    You remind me of a fellow Hispanic that when I asked her why was she a Republican, she responded that it was all about her gains, meaning economically and politically. When I asked her if she fell bad about how rightists feel about minorities and their actions against people like her and me, she just smiled.

    • Thank you for the response but I fail to make the connection.

      • 21st Century Pacifist

        Your conformance to traditional mid 20th Century America only makes the Civil Rights movement more difficult. If you haven’t figured out for yourself that ALL the gains in Civil Rights for you and me were fostered by Democrats since the 1960’s, then you are blind or delusional.
        Just because one person (you) win and the rest of us lose is no reason to reject an organization that continues to abdicate for most people of color. Your rationale that people of color would be better of rejecting same sex marriage, gun control and advocating for what you call “school choice” (read destruction of the public school system in favor of Religious or for profit schools that would only brain watch our youth, you are probably a product of this system), appears to be self serving. I find it difficult to phantom minority Republicans, it appears masochistic to me.

        • The point is that the NAACP fails to represent as you say “people of color” Why should any child go to a school that does not work and not have the choice to go to a better school.

            Then what we should try to do is to work to improve our existing schools. That is not just the NAACP’s job, it is our job. If you chose to send your children to a private school, the cost should not be taken out of the public school system, which is what vouchers are. If you want to send your children to a private school because of your religious/philosophical beliefs, dont’s expect the rest of us to pay for it. Most schools will provide a good education for children to be successful in the future. We as parents have to do our part to make sure they are taking advantage of this benefit.
