NAACP Silent on True Racism
Even more intriguing than the National Association for the Advancement of [Liberal] Colored People's (NAACP) decision to categorically dismiss the Tea Party as a bunch of racists based on fabricated claims is their silence on true racism in the United States. According to the organization's website, the mission of the NAACP:
is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
Its vision statement:
is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
and one of its objectives:
To inform the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination and to seek its elimination
Of course, despite the talk about "all persons" and "all individuals," none of this applies if the victim is white. The NAACP has yet to even make a mention of the racism inherent in the New Black Panther party. They have not commented on the court proceedings, or the Obama Justice Department's decision to drop the case even after they won by default.
If the NAACP's objective is to "inform the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination and to seek its elimination," why are they passing up an opportunity to do just that. How hard can it be? The New Black Panther Party's racism is well documented. What part of "I hate white people, all of them. Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him." leaves any room for doubt? Is there any context in which advocating infanticide could possibly be considered acceptable or healthy for a community?
Instead of addressing the very real injustice of voter intimidation perpetrated by the New Black Panther Party, the NAACP has chosen to focus on fabricated injustices of the Tea Party. At least we know where they stand. The NAACP is now comprised of liberals first. The New Black Panther Party's anti-Capitalist stance and minority composition grants it immunity from condemnation. Meanwhile, a group that mirrors the demographic composition of the nation but opposes unfettered liberalism must be declared racist.
