Black bloggers and Black Journalist may even be called anti-black. Read the attack on Jack and Jill Politics in the comments section of Field Negroes blog. These diehard colored extremist shock me every day! Then they get mad if I call them colored. when the organization the are
Now when white Journalist say Obama does not have enough black on their staff, or The Obama White House is too white - not a problem. When a black blogger or Journalist says the same thing, your anti-black.
What is truly another disgrace is these
Yes, I admit I said the National President of the NAACP is disgrace and a sell-out and should consider resigning as President of the NAACP.
Yes, I admit that I said he is part of the new crew of colored people advancing their own agenda, not a black empowerment or capacity building agenda.
Now why do I have to be attacked for having my own opinion by Kevin M., a Branch President of the NAACP on my
Kevin said: "AAPP, it IS certainly your right to do so and I for one would not insult you for being critical. However, when you continuously return to the meme "what has the NAACP done since the 60's?", I for one question whether you are as...king a real question or just being intentionally inflammatory.
AAPP: @Kevin: I have no reason on earth to be intonally inflamatory. I am not the only one asking real questions about the National Office of the NAACP and it's lack of leadership. Infact, one would have to wonder why the President of the NAACP was intentionally inflammatory, in order to get it's name in the news by electronically lynching a black women - Shirley Sherrod...
Kevin Said: What have we done? Really? I will just speak for my little band of folks out here in Kansas when I say that in just the last 2 years we've registered around 700 voters, wrote a couple state laws, blocked a bill designed to block health care reform, pushed for changes to
AAPP@ Kevin: I salute the great work of a number of local branches who do great work and are able to to show outcomes for their collective efforts. Now I read you don't want my congratulations - so be it. Not a problem, there are real community builders in my local community to congratulate and support.
Kevin said: Now yes AAPP, it IS certainly your right as an American citizen to continue to call us fools, disgraceful, ignorant, worthless and all the other names you like to banty about on your blog... But just know that those responses you're receiving are coming from folks who are ALSO exercising THEIR rights as Americans to question you as to what have you actually done besides call black people who are volunteering in their communities a bunch of names on the internet.
AAPP@ Kevin: I have no problem with folks asking what I have done lately. My record in community development and community capacity building throughout the country is an open book, if people want to know, just hit my up privately and we can discuss my body of work in community development. I have been in the trenches, even before many of these so called activist were born.
Kevin: Here's the part where you usually make the distinction between the local and National office... But you know what - you shouldn't.. The NAACP is an Association of 2,200 branches just like mine. Sometimes awesome, and sometimes awful... but we are a network of 400,000 folks who are volunteering our own time and resources to make our communities better. And we are all coming together and saying goodbye to our past divisions.. So if you are talking about "our" President, "our" chairman, "our" national Board, or "our" national staff, please don't single me out for any type of singular appreciation - I don't want it.
AAPP@Kevin: Yes, you have a network of 400,000 but the national office cant even put together a blog, or an internet networking vehicle to do grassroot organizing. How pathetic!
Kevin: Now I know calling us a bunch of names is still good for building your readership - I ain't mad at ya... do your thing. But just know as a community, we seem to be reaching a 'tipping point'. I'm out in the community every day and I can tell you that a lot of us are simply getting weary of the "Let me demonstrate my independence by attacking Black people" routine... Pretty soon my brother, you're going to have to get a new gig.
AAPP@ Kevin: I would expect nothing less of you, as a NAACP Chapter President to support everything that the national office does. I'm not the only one seeing the National Office of the NAACP for what it is.
By the way, I'm not the only one who thinks the NAACP has been a failure for over 40 years.
Please read Dewayne Wickman'sBlackChristianNews.com
Yes, Kevin, Your right we seem to be reaching a Tipping Point. and the NAACP may just go the way of F.W. Woolworth's. Yes, your right there are some that need new gigs. The current President of the NAACP is the one that needs to get the new gig. He is the one that attacked a black woman, Shirley Sherrod... without cause...
But I guess you have not been following current events...
The national office of the NAACP has no credability! Now it sends out it's goof balls to attack me. Read what the NAACP had to say about
These have to be some real stupid bastards at the national office to watch Fox News and believe it.
NAACP Press Release:
The NAACP also has long championed and embraced transformation by people who have moved beyond racial bias. Most notably, we have done so for late
With regard to the initial media coverage of the resignation of
AAPP: Pathetic! Robert Bird?
This NAACP National Office is so... Pathetic...
No wonder so many people believe the NAACP has lost it's way. The national NAACP has been so disorganized for years. How long will this new young and inexperienced NAACP President last? Hopefully not for long. The last NAACP President only lasted 19 months.
The fact of the matter is the relatatively new President of the NAACP brought shame to the NAACP, yet it gratuitously uses the occasion to bash black bloggers for calling them out.
The National NAACP needs to transform itself and back it's attack dogs off of this blogger.
Oh, that's right, the NAACP attack dog (Kevin M) recently lost a bid to become a member of the board, and will take any action he can to show he is worthy of a seat in the future.
As Kevin said on his NAACP Chapter blog, "Sometimes success comes in stages and this was just the first stage of my road onto the board. ;)"
I'm coming back bigger and stronger than ever!"
AAPP says: I guess that "bigger and stronger" can be accomplished by attacking me and other black bloggers bro Kevin? In the name of getting an NAACP Board seat, let me attack a fellow afrospear blogger. Following in the Footsteps of Ben Jealous? Attack when you don't know the facts? Or attack to those who say the NAACP is out of step with the needs of the black community.
Well Mr. NAACP Kevin M you won't be able to attack me on my own
UPDATE: As reported by another black blogger, Gina, at What About Our Daughters,
the NAACP Legal Goons have Invaded WAOD comments section following calls for Jealous to resign.
See, and knew I was not the only person under attack by the NAACP and their represenatatives.
