Most people know what those guys are all about, but don't speak out about it.


I've said this crap around here before, Jackson and that other jackass do nothing but go around and downright exploit the black man for fame and money. The only real followers Jackson has are the ones that can still make some nickels and dimes off of the whole poor us race card.

Hey black guys, what has Obama done for you? Nothing!

What I would like to know is why we have to continue to pay for the fact that some white people owned slaves in the distant past? I never owned any slaves and my ancestors were too poor to own any so why should I pay for it? Black people need to get over it and take responsibility for their own lot in life because they have the same opportunity white people have to advance their position. I might even say they have more advantages then white people do to succeed in life because of the high level of political correctness in this country now. White people can't even use the race card even if it is deserved. Things will get much worse in this country before it gets better.

The point of anyone except those seeking to once again drag out the handy race card in seeking support for their own race and agenda are the only ones that can be found is support of this cast of characters. My $$ is on there being a higher percentage of racists being found within the ranks of the NAACP than could ever be found within the ranks of the Tea Party.

The facts are pretty plain and simple here. The NAACP by its very nature is an organization whose whole purpose, intent and focus is to further, not deride, a racial position and agenda within our society. Its very acronym itself which stands for "The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People" should leave no doubt in any reasonable mind that it's a race based and therefore racist organization. Only when implementing the nonsensical constraints of political correctness can such a purely logical view of this organizations underlying message be found to be anything BUT racist in nature.

I've often found it so incredibly odd that in the US BET (Black Educational Television), Miss Black Teenage America/Miss Black America pageants, The United Negro College Fund and other such obviously racially motivated organizations, groups and events are sanctioned and blessed by politicians, the media and large segments of the population while never being viewed correctly as blatant and outright examples of racism themselves.

The very titles some folks bestow upon themselves here, African - Americans, Hispanic/Latino - Americans, Asian - Americans, Middle Eastern Americans are an absolute mystery to me in how anyone can embrace such concepts when these titles actually manage to do 2 things incredibly well. First and foremost they perform the very racist act of creating a racial divide by bestowing such titles upon their group and secondly by quite simply widening the chasm of a racial divide by delineating all Americans into such a grouping by putting their own race in the forefront above the idea that they are even in fact AMERICANS! How can such monikers truly be anything but an open admission of racism by those who use them to describe themselves?

I'll go all this assertion one better in sayin that if ever there were to be a White Educational Television, a Miss White Teenage America/Miss White America pageant, or a United White People College Fund formed the NAACP would be the 1st to jump up and down and scream RACISM, RACISM, RACISM long before they would ever turn their eyes upon themselves and their own all too obviously racially based organizations and groups (*facepalm*) totally
lost (*facepalm*)

I have to say, I am a little downright refreshed to see lots of articles (at least online) from people that are not even related to the Tea Party in any way coming out and seeing what the NAACP is all about, and letting people know about it.

It's a good simple point, the NAACP is not there to equal things out, the NAACP is for the Advancement of Colored People.... even though they do only concentrate on the Black Color..... isn't that racist?

Here's an article from T.V....... hey, he's colored!


At this week's NAACP annual meeting, members voted to censure the Tea Party as "racist." But it's the NAACP that's the throwback, argues Tunku Varadarajan.

NAACP: Can we all agree that it stands for the National Association for the Advancement of Cynical Politics?

The proper expansion of “NAACP” has a profoundly archaic ring to it. I know, I know: The retention of that primordial name—the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People—has to do with safeguarding history; and an irrefutably impressive history it is, too. But can anyone deny that the “colored” part of the organization’s name is no longer preservative of anything that is at all meaningful?

Here we have the Tea Party, one of the nation’s most organic, Athenian, democratic movements, being attacked by a political organization—the NAACP—that is among the most sclerotic, dinosaurian, and cadaverous of America’s political groupings.

Colored: Who the heck says that in the America of today, unless you’re a very, very old friend of the late highwayman (as in dedicated asphalt, not armed robbery) Robert C. Byrd? Which is why no member of this once-courageous black organization will spell out its full name. Everyone says, instead, “N-double A-CP”: To elongate the abbreviation is to expose oneself to derisive—or, worse, baffled—inquisition. (“Dad, Mom, what’s with the ‘colored’ thing?”)

The NAACP, this vestigial bone on the American body politic, has thrust itself into the headlines by voting, at its annual meeting Tuesday, to censure as “racist” the Tea Party movement. This controversial public rebuke—delivered a day after the first lady, Michelle Obama, addressed the NAACP’s conference—has opened up a raw, new racial front in the run-up to the November elections. In effect, the self-congratulatory, post-racial Obama camp is reaching for the crudest weapon in the Democratic arsenal: the racial blunderbuss.

Of course, desperate times call for desperate measures, and the NAACP is going back to an old playbook. The NAACP is resorting to the Jacksonian (Jesse, not Andrew) ploy to use the race card (a) to rally blacks to the mid-terms; and (b) to intimidate the mainstream media, so that it doesn’t report critically on a liberal administration, urging it instead to focus on the perceived sins of the Tea Party movement.

If black Americans are suffering due to our current economic woes, Obama’s own policies are hardly helping them. The NAACP can’t bitch about “the Man” anymore because the Man is Obama.[grinning
smiley] And so instead it turns its racially monolithic vituperation on the Tea Party, which has never been in power, and has had no impact on the economic condition of black Americans—except to advocate policies (smaller government, lower taxes, radically reduced deficits, etc.) that would likely improve the standard of living of all Americans (blacks included). In fact, the Tea Party is a greater friend of black Americans, one might say, than the administration, and is much more representative of America than the NAACP. (There are many more black members of the Tea Party—however you define that movement—than there are, by definition, non-black members of the NAACP.)

The NAACP senses—knows—that the electoral momentum is building inexorably against President Obama. And they hope to slow it by playing the race card. Let there be no doubt that nothing would have been tabled at this NAACP meeting without President Obama’s imprimatur—especially with the first lady as the keynote speaker. Our first black president—with his lowest approval ratings ever—is using his race politically, through a surrogate. But shameless as all this is, it may have some effect. As Shelby Steele, a political scientist at the Hoover Institution, told me, “racist stigma in America is so powerful that truth and reason look meager next to it. Any populist movement—such as the Tea Party—that is predominantly white, has this vulnerability of seeming to be a throwback to the nation’s racist past.”

Michelle Obama’s participation as keynote speaker could prove toxic to the Democrats in the run-up to the November elections—even though she confined her remarks to obesity and the like, and steered clear of references to the Tea Party. Many in America already believe that she is a black militant in mufti, and her headlining of a gathering which cast the Tea Party as racist will have been noted by a good many ordinary, non-radical, middle-of-the-road Americans—not to mention Tea Party activists, who will be sure (and who can blame them?) to put together little YouTube packages from the NAACP shindig, cutting from Michelle O to Ben Jealous, the NAACP president who was the resolution’s prime mover.

So here we have the Tea Party, one of the nation’s most organic, Athenian, democratic movements, being attacked by a political organization—the NAACP—that is among the most sclerotic, dinosaurian, and cadaverous of America’s political groupings. When race is in play, there is vulnerability all around. The NAACP, and President Obama, will learn that in the months ahead.

All well said Mr. Kim and Mach. According to our political correctness there can't possibly be a black racist. I blame political correctness for not publicizing racism among the black people. I clearly admit I am a racist but you will be hard pressed to find a black person to admit it themselves. It is my right to be a racist as long as I don't engage in hate speech publicly. I am not a tea party member but I am a registered Democrat. To say that tea party members are racists and not admit that all political parties are racists is just plain crazy. You will find racists in all walks of life and among all races. I have know from it's very inception that NAACP is race based and openly racist but it is our political correctness which prevents people from openly saying it. It is our political correctness which will be our downfall as a people not just as a race. I would stop being a racist if the black people would stop blaming me for slavery and stop trying to turn us into second class citizens instead of bring themselves up to the level we were without being given it on a silver platter. From what I have seen the only black people who use the race card are the ones too lazy to work to advance their position in life. Bill Cosby has said it many times and to my knowledge has never pulled the race card wich is why he is one of a few Black people who have my respect

This is reality, total self righteous bullshit.... you have to give us extra, but when it's the other way around I'm going to short you... white boy!

That white farmer should take them to court.

Posted on YouTube 2 days ago and has over 220,000 views..... it's called reality.

Listen to the audience (NAACP members respond to her so positively)

"That white farmer should take them to court."

Good luck getting a court to hear the case. The suit would never see the light of day because no court wants to handle any case which might show blacks as racist but if the defendant was white they would jump at the chance. We have been brainwashed for decades to believe that black people can't be racist but white people can. Just like the media brainwashes us to believe that it is ok for interracial marriages and if anyone thinks it is not ok then they are racist.

The same way they pass laws to restrict other rights. People want to be seen as progressive so they allow all kinds of laws to be passed which stomp on some people's rights because other people don't use those rights so they think it is ok.

Damn, it is so great when people just look at the facts and speak out (former NAACP). There's some great quotes in this trailer alone.
