Do you really believe that the NAACP is a "non partisan" organization?
That basically means that an organization can't align themselves with a political party. They must be "neutral". It looks like the NAACP has tipped it's hand and exposed itself as being a partisan organization. I commented earlier on the stupidity and racism of Marvin L. Cheatham who is the President of the Baltimore Chapter of the NAACP. I left out another ignorant comment Cheatham made. Apparently Mr. Cheatham has a problem with a Republican being appointed Mayor of Baltimore if a Republican wins the Governorship next year and Mayor Dixon is found guilty when she goes on trial in November.
Marvin Chetham "he worried that a future Republican governor could appoint someone from his party to lead a city were Democrats outnumber Republicans 9 to 1. "Would not the Republican governor have the ability to pick a Republican mayor?" he asked.
"We just think there are some unanswered questions about the process,".
With Chetham representing a so called non partisan organization, why should he cares what party affiliation controls the mayor ship of Baltimore? That is the twenty one thousand dollar question. This is the first paragraph from the Baltimore Sun.
Baltimore Sun "Leaders of the Maryland NAACP, worried that a Baltimore mayor's criminal conviction could result in the appointment of a white or Republican leader who may not fully represent the majority black and Democratic city, are asking state lawmakers to strip the governor of authority to permanently fill the office."
I found that paragraph to be, drop down ,laughing on the floor hilarious. As a citizen of Baltimore, I can say with much dripping sarcasm, "I love what Democrats have done with the place". The city of Baltimore has been run and controlled by Democrats for over forty years. Forty years ago, Baltimore City had a population of little over 950,000 people. Today it has a population of around 635,000. The city has lost in population the equivalent of a medium sized city. I wonder could the NAACP leadership in Baltimore claim that Democrats done a great job for blacks in cities like Detroit, Chicago, New Jersey City, Atlantic City, Richmond. New Orleans, Washington DC. I'm clueless to how the NAACP feels that Democrats have "represented the black majority" in Baltimore. They've done an awesome job contributing to a shrinking tax base. Democrats represented Baltimore well in it's accomplishment of being the number one most violent city in America for the last twenty years or so. If Democrats represent the black majority of cities like Baltimore, why do these cities have so many serious social and economic problems and continue to have them? It can't be said that Democrats haven't had enough time to change these cities around. These cities have been Democrat ruled for decades. The only city with a mostly black population that isn't in the sad state of affairs and Democrat run is Atlanta. The population of Atlanta is also highly educated, so crime isn't a problem like it is in other cities with black majorities with disastrous and dangerous public school systems. The NAACP is clearly a hack group for the Democratic Party. They don't represent the interest of blacks. Their role is to control blacks and deliver their votes come election time. They represent their own interest of power and self preservation, hence the National Association of the Advancement of "SOME" colored people.
