    Can anyone answer a question for me? Why would any GOP candidate get up and talk before a racist partisan organization like the NAACP? It would be akin to Obama getting up and talking before the KKK. Why?

    Minus the former lynchings and burning of crosses, I view the KKK and NAACP much in the same light. They have their bigoted agendas that is soley based upon race and partisan talking points, so you can talk till your blue in face and it will have no effect. Speaking of the KKK, why has the NAACP never protested the likes of one former Democrat Congressman Robert Byrd who was once a KKK member? It would seem that partisan politics is more important than race. Therefore, I conclude that race then is only a weapon to further the cause of the DNC.

    In what sense is the NAACP "racist"?

    From their website:

    The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.

    Vision Statement
    The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.

    Objectives
    The following statement of objectives is found on the first page of the NAACP Constitution - the principal objectives of the Association shall be:

    To ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of all citizens

    To achieve equality of rights and eliminate race prejudice among the citizens of the United States

    To remove all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes

    To seek enactment and enforcement of federal, state, and local laws securing civil rights

    To inform the public of the adverse effects of racial discrimination and to seek its elimination

    To educate persons as to their constitutional rights and to take all lawful action to secure the exercise thereof, and to take any other lawful action in furtherance of these objectives, consistent with the NAACP's Articles of Incorporation and this Constitution.

    Take the Zimmerman controversy, for example. If Zimmerman had been black and shot another black man, such a common event would not have made national headlines. In fact, it might not even make the local papers. However, because Zimmerman was not black, then groups like the NAACP suddenly care? In fact, had they been given the chance, they probably would have lynched Zimmerman who clearly did not seem to be a racist once the facts came out.

    Of course, when the NAACP attacks opponents of the DNC, like the Tea Party, by calling them racists, then no evidence need be presented. Face it, they are a tool of the DNC using racism as a weapon.

    The web site of the NAACP claims to be nonpartisan and blind to race, however, their very existence depends upon creating racial strife. In addition, their tax exempt status would be jeapordy if they were proven a political tool of the DNC.

    Does anyone know and GOP members of the NAACP?

    Well to be fair it is probably them darn Lynchings n Cross burning's that separate a lot of politically motivated groups from the KKK, as far as I know the NAACP also want the exact opposite of the apartheid system that the KKK has consistently advocated.

    Perhaps the fact that Congressman Robert Byrd reformed himself and turned his back on his KKK member days has something to do with the NAACP not protesting it. No doubt the NAACP would have protested against Byrd if he had remained a KKK man. Don't you agree that the Robert Byrd story is a great American story?

    How many people do you claim have been executed illegally by the NAACP in the past? Would Zimmerman have been the first "had they been given the chance"?

    To my knowledge the KKK has not continued such violent actions, yet they remain just as bigoted.

    Sure, it's nice to see people turn a new leaf. Too bad the NAACP does not protest before the fact.

    This is a NAACP statement about the Zimmerman case:

    “Forty–five days after Trayvon Martin’s life came to a violent end, the wheels of justice have finally begun to turn. This is an important first step toward bringing justice for Trayvon and his family.

    As we have seen, the system does not always work perfectly. But we have shown that when we stand together as a nation we can compel it to work. For the NAACP, this case has always been about the rule of law. We are encouraged by today’s charges, but we know that this is just the beginning. We anticipate and expect a thorough federal investigation of the Sanford Police Department and their role in exacerbating this tragedy.

    Trayvon’s case moved the nation because it underscored the twin tragedies that affect so many of our young people: Trayvon was profiled because of his race - looked upon as a threat rather than the loving son he was. And then, once he became a victim, he was neglected by the very police department tasked with protecting our communities and families. As a nation, we’ve got to address the issues of racial profiling and the valuation of black mens’ lives by law enforcement. In the months ahead the months ahead the NAACP and our allies in the civil rights community will continue to take these issues on as well as the urgent need to repeal stand your ground laws.

    Tonight our thoughts and prayers are with Trayvon’s family. We are grateful for the courage and tenacity of Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin that continue to help shape a national movement for justice for their son and for all of America’s children.”


    Where's the racism?

    As I have said, had it been a black killing another black, they would have made no statements about it.

    What function would they serve if racism disappered overnight? Perhaps getting them jobs in an Obama economy? Nope, all they care about is a mindless block black vote for the DNC.
