And sandtown419 throws out the first racebaiter comment.

NAACP is the same as the KKK.
Neither group is worth listening to unless your in to stirring up the racial divide further.

santown419

Are you serious or just dumb. All these racist commemts. You have to be just dumb.

deertracker

Agreed!

Put America 1st

Sandtown419 - individuals like babycakes, erie and margartaville are ignorant and stupid but just plain bigots. Anyone of any nationality can join the NAACP, attend a meeting or go to the banquet compare to the KKK. But do not tell them that, facts will only get in the way.

Start working at home with Google! Its by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. Useful Reference http://ow.ly/pAu07
WORK LESS EARN MORE

Bottom Line

Exactly. But I can't wait to hear the excuses why one is okay and necessary while your idea is racist and hateful.

Tired Of The Bull

The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) was formed in an attempt to give minorities a voice, to defend those who were victims of discrimination, and to uphold civil liberties. Let's not forget why this association HAD to be formed in the first place!!!!

Seems to me that discrimination has since been reversed.....

Seems to me that discrimination hasn't been entirely reversed, since a goodly number of Republicans who hate Obama, hate him most because he is black. Racism is alive and well in the teaparty, to be sure (it's one of their defining characteristics).

And even if you don't believe that is true, it is quite obvious that a large portion of the GOP's continued efforts to disenfranchise inner city voters is a direct targeting of minorities, whom they know are likely to vote Democrat.

Darwin's choice

Wrong, troll, they dislike him because of his failures.

60% of Americans would fire all members of Congress and Obama.....!

Erie County Resident

@ toastedbrain I hate to tell you but this has nothing to do with your Hopey Changey Clowns color. I hate him because of his liberal socialist agenda. He is destroying our country with the help of the Demoncraptic party and the liberal media lapdogs that report no facts just his propaganda.

deertracker

@coaster
Agreed!

SamAdams

I don't hate Obama because he's black. I hate him because he's RED!

If I hated Obama because he's black, I wouldn't have supported Herman Cain's campaign. If I was a white supremecist, I wouldn't be busy criticizing John Boehner's all too frequent bonehead moves (actually, bad example; Boehner's more orange than white). Okay, I wouldn't be busy criticizing Lindsey Graham or Mitch McConnell.

I focus on POLICIES, not skin color or even personality (I'm pretty sure I'd think Obama was a narcissistic a$$hat no matter his appearance). And Obama's policies are abysmal! I lump John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi into the same group (I don't want to seem anti-male, after all). Oh, wait. Aren't those last three WHITE? You gotta hate when those accusations of racism don't quite work out for you, don't you? Of course, when you've got NOTHING else...

deertracker

I have no idea what is in your head or heart but if policies were the real issue, how could you support Herman Cain? What policy of his was so alluring? What makes Obama a narcissist or an azzhat? I don't see it. This man has done everything and more to become and qualify for the POTUS yet can't get an ounce of respect so exactly what is one to think?

VOTENO

deertracker

NAACP = National Association for the Advancement of Colored People! People of color, not necessarily black!

Ned Mandingo

The same reason is shouldn't exist anymore. Have you never heard of affirmative action that discriminates against white people.

8ballinthesidepocket

Try the NFL and NBA! Doesn't look like affirmative action for whites worked, where is the class action law suit? Oh dats right, whites can never be discriminated against can they.

Put America 1st

To add to your wonderful point which went over the usual bigots heads on this board. ANYONE can join the NAACP.

an·y·one (n-wn, -wn)
pron.
Any person.

Usage Note: The one-word form anyone is used to mean "any person." The two-word form any one is used to mean "whatever one (person or thing) of a group." Anyone may join means that admission is open to everybody. Any one may join means that admission is open to one person only. When followed by of, only any one can be used: Any one (not anyone) of the boys could carry it by himself. · Anyone is often used in place of everyone in sentences like She is the most thrifty person of anyone I know. In an earlier survey 64 percent of the Usage Panel found this sentence unacceptable in writing. · Anyone and anybody are singular terms and always take a singular verb.

LOL LOL LOL!!!!!!!!

Bottom Line

Groups like this simply pour gasoline on the dwindling racism fire. Because without racism, these groups serve no purpose... Darwin said what most of us know is true.

NAACP is no longer an organization that upholds civil rights, it is a shill for the progressive agenda. Any organization that bans Deneen Borelli is pathetic.

Tired Of The Bull

About a week ago I was waiting at a red light and a guy rolled down his window and called me the "n" word for no reason!!!! I could go on and on.... So are you really saying that racism and discrimination doesn't exist anymore!!!! Are you freaking serious!!!!

Darwin's choice

It's very much alive, and being perpetuated by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson almost daily.....

Tired Of The Bull

Believe it or not, I agree with you....they have their own agenda!!! But please don't put it all on them!!!!

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!

coasterfan

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.

Darwin's choice

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

All these hometown voters are fed up!! From Chicago...

deertracker

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.

Darwin's choice

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

deertracker

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...

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.

rezzy

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.

deertracker

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

SMDH!

Jerry, are you really that ignorant?

The New World Czar

"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.

KURTje

Sturm Thurman?

grumpy

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.

grumpy

How does showing a state issued picture ID before voting the equivalent to being drafted and going to Vietnam? It seems to be quite a stretch to make that an equivalent. I know the history of civil rights, and trying to equate that to having to show a picture ID given to you by the state before voting is belittling what happened in the 60's to the civil rights activists and marchers. I would not consider disrespecting those who went through all they did, to try to say showing a state issued picture ID you are given, is near what happened to the civil rights crusaders.

Hope you have a nice evening. See ya tomorrow.

KURTje

Paul Strand/ Native Land. Grump believe it or not, my uncle was there with the "Freedom Riders"/CIA.

grumpy

You didn't answer about how showing a state issued ID that you are given is the equivalent to some civil rights crusaders being killed, jailed, beaten, or just abused? To me it is disrespecting to them and their memory to attempt to do so.

Glad to hear you uncle was one who helped back nearly 50 years ago, before you probably were born. What is has to do with voting rights now, I don't quite understand.

KURTje

Pretty e-z stuff. Treat others how you would like to be treated. Conversely hurt bad people/USMC.

grumpy

How is trying to make equivelant the killing, beating, or just abusing of the civil rights crusaders, to showing a state issued picture ID when voting not disrespecting those folks? You walk all around that. Everyone who votes has to show their ID, not just those you don't like. All voters are treated the same, per the Constitution, you know the thing that Marines, and every other branch of the military are sworn to uphold.
