Anyone is welcome to attend. The evening’s keynote speaker is U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, who represents northern Lucas, Ottawa, Erie, Lorain and Cuyahoga counties.

The banquet serves as one of the organization’s largest fundraisers each year. It also allows members to show appreciation for those who have faithfully supported the organization.

The funds raised will enable the unit to continue the civil rights struggle on the local, state and national levels.

Tickets can be purchased or reserved by calling 419-625-5056. The cost is $40 for adults and $25 for children, and the deadline to get a ticket is Monday.

Correct, it is the United States Government that keeps racism alive in the twenty first century! Equality is what should be promoted across the board, look they can not even have equality in Obozo care, the set asides for people prezo feels he needs. It is plane sick!

Evidence that racism is alive is easy to see in the nonstop attempt by many conservatives to de-legitimize the Obama presidency. Even the stunningly unqualified/inept George W. Bush wasn't the object of scorn that Obama is, in spite of cramming about 50 years worth of mistakes into an 8-year mostly disastrous presidency.

Darwin's choice

Troll, Failure by Obama to keep any of the "hope and change" campaign promises is the subject of his scorn.

LYING story telling troll !! This failure of a government is imploding on it own...

You guys want to blame everyone but yourself. Al and Jesse are civil rights activists not so called race baiters. They have helped all colors. Some of you are severely misinformed! If you don't support the NAACP don't attend the banquet. Simple as that. Every time there is an article about race or the perp is black, the usual suspects fire up their keyboard and get going! That says it all.

Your lack of intelligence is alarming. Those two crooks and their familys, have done more harm than good for "civil rights".

Elaborate Dagwood!

My comment was based on government policies, not parties!

Sharpton and Jackson are jerks, but their counterpart on the other side of the debate are about 20-30 million rednecks, white supremacists and teaparty folks. Neither side has a monopoly on buffoonery, kids...

From the King buffoon....Troll

Coasterfan is the type of idiot I'd love to be in a ring with.

Stop It

But your best bud can call you the same thing and it's like water off a duck's back? Can't have it both ways. Either you embrace it or you bury it. Good luck on either venture.

Tired Of The Bull

Well I HATE to hear that word coming from ANYONE!!!! So I can't embrace it but how exactly do you suggest I bury it??!!!

Stop It

Again, Good luck on either venture.

Do you believe in luck?

Tired Of The Bull

What does luck have to do with it? I guess ill end this by saying if you have never walked in my shoes then you'll never understand!!!! Nor do I believe you want to!!!

Stop It

I highly doubt that you'd want to walk in mine , as well.

I knew Kaptur would somehow be involved. Isn't 2014 a re-election year? Career politicians make me sick, especially when 80% of her nearly million dollar campaign fund comes from lobbying money in DC. You don't see her until the election comes around

Dr. Information

Can I get an Amen for an all white Miss America Pageant? Or how about some all white frat houses on college campus's that only allow whites? Or better yet, how about a white caucus? If we want equality?

starryeyes83

Amen.

You can start anything you want. Nothing is preventing you from doing so!

Jerry, are you really that ignorant?

"The funds raised will enable the unit to continue the civil rights struggle on the local, state and national levels."

How about a better focus...like the unusually-high amount of violence and crime within the community in Sandusky? This would be a great example of putting one's money where one's mouth is.

Sturm Thurman?

Died 10 years or so ago. Is he relevant today? Try to stay current and not live your life in the past.

kURTje

Sure he is . He had sex with someone whose colour he hated. Then the truth comes out. Similar to Jefferson. Know your history.

grumpy

How is it relavent to the subject at hand? I could care less who sleeps with who. Why are you so concerned who is sleeping with who? especially 5 or 6 decades in the past for one, and 2 centuries in the past for the other? In what way is it relavent to what is happening today? If you are upset with what those individuals did, I suggest you go and yell at their graves. Tell them how you feel.

kURTje

Just like the Voting Rights Act circa 1965. In history that was a second ago. In reality, blacks in Miss. could be drafted for Vietnam but not allowed to vote. Again..another reason history is valid. Got to go help a "single mom out." See ya tomorrow.
