    This is purely political and not based on any facts. This is a result of being scared the demcoms will lose and lose big in November. This is nothing more than dishonest race baiting, there is not an ounce of integrity in them.

    The only way the NAACP can continue to exist is to perpetuate racism. Race baiting is their new mantra.

    While the organization may have lost a lot of relevence, and lack tact (seizing upon minor issues and not seeing to go after racism on the ideological level, and then not being more clear on its stances), in fairness, this would be the stuff they're referring to:
    http://www.naacp.org/news/entry/naa...epudiate-racist-elements-within-the-tea-pary/

    Even that Fox News article provides a clue of their concern:
    "It said something could evolve 'and become more dangerous for that small percentage of people that really think our country has been taken away from them'."

    The NAACP article concluded:

    "The proposed resolution had generated controversy on conservative blogs, where in some cases the language has been misconstrued to imply that the NAACP was condemning the entire Tea Party movement itself as racist."

    Apologizing for the NAACP has become a literary art!

    sorry, eric, but there's no defense for the naa-a-a-p here (sorry, just being politically correct...can't use the "c" in "NAACP.")

    The NAA-A-A-P keep perpetuating stories that have absolutely no evidence to them. The oft-repeated one about members of congress repeatedly called the "n-word" and spat upon?

    There were dozens, if not hundreds, of cameras. Not one has come forth with footage substatiating the claims of the bigot congressman that made them.

    The NAA-A-A-P is irrelevant. It definitely had an important role years ago. No longer.

    ANd the fact that they refuse to take a stand on the Black Panther voter intimidation simply speaks volumes.

    Their position?
    • If you're black...you can do anything, and we will not call you on it. Ever.
    • If you're white, you better be incredibly liberal. Otherwise, you're racist.
    The NAA-A-A-P is a joke.

    I didn't even "apologize" for them; I just let the links speak for themselves (including even the OP's links). The NAACP link contains pictures of some of what they're talking about. At first, I was not going to bother with this, but then I decided I wanted to see the full context. So I don't know about congressmen, but some of those pictures I would think were a cause for some concern.
    They may just be political cronies, but I think both sides live off of taking bits of truth as total validation of their positions.

    White people can join the NAACP. (Anyway) In the US, race is self-designated.

    There is no validity to any of their charges. Everyone of them is made up. There is no reason fro concern as any level.

    Are there hatchet jobs on both sides? Sure. But no one race-baits and lies like the NAA-A-A-P

    But why would any white person with any intelligence want to join such a group of bigots?

    On what basis do you say this? They do have pictures there, even if it's not the videos people are saying don't exist.

    I saw the pictures and there is nothing there with the exception of one pic of comparing him to Hitler which has nothing to do with racism.

    Why can't they produce even one corroborating video/audio of the accusations? There were scores of cameras there.

    Why can these guys simply lie, and never be called out for it?

    Oh. I forgot. Racism. To question them means I'm a racist. My bad.

    Uh, no. I don't know about video/audio, but I wouldn't call them liars yet with the pictures. The one comparing hm to Hitler is the least racially questionable of the bunch. Look at the ones at the top. One comes right out and uses the N word. Another uses a stereotype of blacks, and the other two I would say are ambiguous as stereotypes. Then, the one further down on "white slavery". If there's any "slavery" being instituted in this country, it's not based on race anymore, but economics, and it's not Obama, minorities or the poor who are becoming the new "massas". (But of course, that doesn't count, the bracket in the direction all of the money is really flowing "deserve" it all.:rolleyes: )

    Which touches upon the issue here, where you too seem to think the tables have been completely turned and you're the ones now being persecuted for race; blacks always are given a pass, etc.
    Personally; I think there is a game of divide and conquer going on, where all of the "little people" are made to be blaming each other, while the real problem goes unsolved.

    The focus of the Tea Party is against big government - not race. The objective of supporters of big government, which includes the NAACP, is to cast the Tea Party movement and its members - any minute element of it - as racists. It's the only tool they have to fight with because their own race agenda has no solid ground. Of course, if one sifts through the vast number of Tea Party groups and members they will find some racists just as one might find a few non-racists in the NAACP. Those few, however, do not represent the purpose or policy of either organization. We have decades of experience observing the positions taken by the NAACP - both active and passive - and we can clearly see who they support and condone. The leaders set the tone in clear public view - it is always a race issue. The Tea Party, on the other hand, is not making any race based issues at all. They're all about putting a halt to the excessive growth of the federal government to preserve the liberty we all - every race - enjoys. Unfortunately, some of the government growth and policies they're against do seem to benefit - and enslave - certain groups more than others and those groups can and do seem to align by race or national origin or immigration status. Enter the NAACP to protect - not the equal treatment under the law - but the special attention given these groups. There's so much power to be had in having large portions of the populous feeding out of your hand. Fortunately, people of all races can see through this age old game and are fed up with those that keep selling their fellow citizens into slavery to a cradle to grave government.

    This is the type of overreaction that is not needed in this country. Anything remotely or loosely related gets turned into full blown racism. It is not true, not necessary and dishonest.

    Just as sifting through the ranks of the democrat party will yield a few racists, even with Robert Byrd dead and buried.

    The naacp doesn't seem to mind them.

    I don't think so. If you're speaking in general, then I haven't said the above, and don't wish to make that generalization.

    However, with regards to the NAACP, you're correct. I do think they give blacks a pass 100% of the time (unless the black is a republican, libertarian, or conservative). And I haven't been "persecuted," but I've seen the NAACP give other non-black folks a very hard time.

    So, what do you see as the real problem?
