Elaine Marshall "Skipped" NAACP Forum, Cal Cunningham Didn't

Elaine Marshall skipped the NAACP forum event held earlier this year for North Carolina's U.S. Senate Candidates.

She claimed it was due to inclement weather and a scheduling conflict.

However even after the NAACP forum was re-scheduled (due to inclement weather) Elaine Marshall still did NOT show up!

Cal Cunningham and Kenneth Lewis showed up but Elaine Marshall did NOT.

Yet....She recently received the Endorsement from North Carolina's Black Leaders.

How stupid!

This explains why the Black Vote in North Carolina isn't taken seriously and is so often ignored by North Carolina's White Leaders.


North Carolina's Black citizens can't continue to blame White Leaders for holding them down when they are doing it to themselves.

Unfortunately North Carolina's racist White establishment and scared Black leaders have already decided to crown Elaine Marshall.

In my opinion Cal Cunningham is the Best choice for the U.S. Senate race that is if I were going to vote for NC Democrats in this fall's General Election.

However I'm not.

Check out a video of the televised NAACP forum event and articles below.

Elaine Marshall A "No Show" At The NC NAACP's Televised Forum On WRAL

At the NAACP's televised forum on WRAL Secretary of State Elaine Marshall was a No Show.

I don't want to come off as if Elaine doesn't support the African American and Minority community or that Elaine isn't sensitive to the issues that African Americans and Minorities face. But to not show up at one of the most important significant events of this years primary season isn't a sign of unwavering support to the NAACP, African Americans or the Minority community to me.

This would have been the perfect opportunity for Elaine to show her support and communicate to the African American Community and Minorities that if elected she work towards issues that we care about.

At this point we can assume that maybe she had something better to do. Or maybe she took this opportunity to just relax an take a break from the campaign trail.

Well this wasn't the right Event NOT TO show up for. Under any circumstances. You can't just right off voters or assume that you got things locked down. You have to fight for every vote.

Not showing up for this event is very telling. It tells me an many other people in the African American and Minority Community that maybe our vote isn't as important to her as we thought. Maybe she thinks she can win without us.

I happen to have a lot of respect for Elaine for her years of service to this State but in my opinion to not show up at a Signature NAACP event is a severe blow if not out right slap in the face of the NAACP, African Americans and the entire Minority Community.

Anthony D. Hall,
