When did the NAACP become a fund for defending criminals? Is this their 'mission' now? If that's the case, then they need to tell folk. I'll bet a lot of their corporate sponsors would drop their silly asses. What a load of nonsense.

I agree completely; the color of the miscreants is irrelevant. There are plenty of cases the NAACP could be pursuing where there are legitimate problems that need addressed. Treating all criminals as victims does not encourage personal responsibility in people, which, in IMHO, is one of the most vexing issues in this country today.
Just my opinion.

I agree man. The NAACP is just as bad as the the two Good Rev. Drs that are only seen when a camara is on. We have more issues that should have our attention than the rights of a grown ass man who decided on his own free will and accord to commit a felony, during which his two "partnas" got killed. I believe we still need the NAACP, but now it is too political. On a lighter note, I think that your idea of taking over Liberia is by far the best thing I've heard in monthes. (smile)
Good Post

The NAACP is in business to exploit incidences of racism, real and perceived. The real problem is that they don't actually accomplish anything. Since brown v Bd. of Ed., what has the NAACP done aside from raise funds and have events?

I wish he was my neighbor. : - )

I agree 100%

I couldn't agree with you more. I seriously believe this organization needs to take a look at their mission, and decide very quickly to redirect their efforts. Their coming off as a joke and it's embarrassing.

The NAACP is a joke. My white executive director told me the other day that they are the main champions of that sham No Child Left Behind Act and I was thinking, "he can't be right." Not only was he right, it's all over the web if you google it. That law is keeping urban kids in a container of underachieving and ignorance and they are out there telling people it's good for their kids.

I don't have so much of a problem with Jesse and Al [as you well know lol] because they are singular men with modest "organizations" that jump to action but that NAACP is a decades old INSTITUTION with a rich history of helping to usher in change for people of color! Now, they are a joke and it makes my blood boil! They are useless! It seems like they aren't using their brains with these decisions that they make. My 7 year old niece could probably make better choices for the people of color in this land.

Two things about this are ridiculous. One is that the NAACP is stepping up to defend blatant criminals. Two is that the young man is being charged with the carnage. Yes he's a criminal. But isn't it enough that his friends were killed in first place and that he will be spending the foreseeable future behind bars thinking about it?

NAACP need to get thes damn racist comic books off the shelf at Wal-marts!

This is interesting because I had a conversation with one of my kids about this incident. I agree that if he had not committed the home invasion he, would not be in his present situation. I live in Colorado and I have yet to see the NAACP step up for TC Armstrong who was literally beat to death, revived then charged with 2nd degree assault in Denver

@Milehighsouthernflava:

Good point, I have not seen them step up in regard to any of the recent police brutality issues here in Chicago.

I had just heard of this story regarding Mr. Armstrong, I am going to research it a write about it.

Hi Dj BA,

A few years ago the Rev's (Al & Jessie)& the NAACP where here in California trying to have the death sentance of Stanley "Tookie" Williams commuted. Mr Williams was one of the founding members of one of the most murderous street gangs in America.

Fortunatly all of their hard work to save this murderer was to no avail as he was put to death.

That is the kind of thing that has turned off most African Americans. Why were they defending that man?

Defending thugs is all the NAACP wants to do, they have seriously lost their way.


So it does not surprise me that the NAACP is on the scene in this case. Jessie and Al are sure to jump on the bandwagon soon if they haven't already.

I don't think that any of them have realized yet that many millions of African Americans have moved on without them. All anyone has to do is look at what the Black blogisphere is doing these days.

Thanks

I have been following this case very closely, and I have to say that it's very refreshing to see that there are intelligent black people here who aren't falling for the nonsense that the NAACP is spewing about this case. Another problem facing the black community is the demagogues like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton trying to make everything a race issue even in cases like this where the blacks were the criminals. If the homeowner was black too, I don't think this would have even made the news! The perps in this case beat Edmonds' wife and stepson. The stepson got beat with the very bat that he tried to defend his mom with and is now permanently brain damaged. Who wouldn't have shot these thugs? The families of the assailants, along with Mr. Hughes' defense attorney, claim that the men only went there to buy weed, not steal it. But who the hell buys weed at 4:00 a.m., especially at someones home? You'd be considered a kook on the streets if you did that. It just doesn't make any sense.

Furthermore, Mr. Hughes' attorney claims that he will prove (at trial) that it wasn't a home invasion robbery, but the shards of glass (from the broken glass door) were all inside the house. This proves that the door was broken in from the outside. I don't think he has a leg to stand on. Case closed!

@John:

Thanks for your comments. Fact is, many African Americans are embarrassed by the stupid causes the NAACP, Jckson and Sharpton try to defend.

You are right, if everyone involved had been White or Black, we would never have heard of this case.
