Well, I'm not out there rallying for anything, so I try not to be critical of those who are (though I'd probably go a different direction). But I do think that "we" tend to be too reactive.

And I agree with your breakdown of ghetto-mindedness.

It's pretty sad when the NAACP virtually ignores horrific failures of Justice like the Jena 6, but make a point to be up front for anything involving a celebrity.

@Thom:

It is sad, and unfortunately true.

You nailed it. Unfortunately the NAACP no longer seems to have the vision to propel Black America forward. Either they need to clean house and the leadership needs to change or maybe a new organization needs to take its place.

How irrelevant have the NAACP become? Well, I think the fact that they still have the word "colored" right there in the title should tell you something. I don't think anyone would cry "foul" if the C were changed to a B.

You gonna get your card revoked talking all dis sense.

I think a whole bunch of folks should join and then take the NAACP over. An organization is nothing without it's membership and if enough of the members want a change of direction then the organization will have no choice but to follow. And they seriously need to cut the self-aggrandizing luncheons and farcical photo-ops. Really continuing to fight for equality is not popular and is not gonna get folks a seat at some politician's fundraiser. Membership has become too much about career networking and social status, not about real justice or social change. Things won't change at the NAACP until those that aren't trying to collect business cards join up and overthrow from within.

Hello John:

Perhaps it would be better if the “C” was dropped period. But then they’d even have more people to disappoint by their lack of action.

Liz:

I believe you may have a point, I considered joining recently, but decided on the Urban League and the Royal African Society. I honestly would start a completely new organization if I had the time…but in between my Liberia take over campaign and my film I don’t have the time lol

I tagged you :)
