NAACP Receives Opposition From Other Blacks; Irrelevant & Lame Organization!

Other Blacks are now beginning to speak out against the NAACP.


People are Not Stupid! They realize that the NAACP hasn't done anything
LATELY to uplift the "regular" American Black Community and has become a tool for White Democrats i.e., a Black Vote Buying scheme.

Sitting back, allowing us to be Destroyed & Forced back into Slavery.

I believe its safe to say that the "new" NAACP is Irrelevant and Lame!

NAACP Receives Opposition From Tea Party Groups With Black Members

Standing with a poster of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., LaNell Babbage-Torres announced the creation of her own Tea Party group, called American Dreams USA Tea Party.

"The Tea Party movement is basically the new civil rights movement," Babbage-Torres said during a news conference in Roswell on Saturday. "It is for everybody who believes in the Constitution of the United States."

She's been involved with Georgia's Tea Party Movement for about a year and said she has never seen any evidence of racism.

"I've had my friends, Democrats, say the Tea Party is another name for the Ku Klux Klan," she said. "And when I heard that, I thought that is so slanderous and mean-spirited. It can incite violence."

The Vice Chair of Policy for the NAACP, Hilary Shelton, had strong words for the Tea Party when he stopped by NBC's Atlanta studio Saturday morning.

"Are you surprised by how much reaction you're getting or was that the goal?" asked 11Alive's Jennifer Leslie.

"We are surprised," Shelton said. "We raised a very legitimate issue. Our offices across the country are getting death threats and other threats because we asked the Tea Party to repudiate those racist elements from within."

The NAACP adopted a resolution during its national meeting on Tuesday condemning "racist elements" in the Tea Party movement and calling on the movement's leaders to repudiate bigotry.

"I think the NAACP is being divisive," said Shelley Wynter, an African-American member of the new Amercian Dreams USA Tea Party who hosts an internet talk show. "I think it's purposely done as an arm of the Democratic Party."

Members of the small new Tea Party group insisted race is a distraction, not an issue.
