I'm glad that this crazy episode played out the way it did, because the NAALCP showed itself for what it isn't. It is no longer a Civil Rights organization. The acronym for the NAACP is "National Organization for the Advancement of Colored People". The term colored is disparately outdated. Anyways, many on the left attacked me because I focused on the NAALCP's resolution, but here is my question. How does the NAALCP's resolution against the Tea Party help to "advance colored people"? All roads seem to lead back to the point that "it doesn't". That is the key point that many people have been trying to make since this whole thing got started. With so many problems facing the black community, the NAACLP honestly believed that by passing this resolution would some how help blacks? The origins of the NAALCP's resolution was political in nature. They wanted to try and gin up support among blacks to come out in the midterm elections. It has been historically proven that most blacks don't come out in strong numbers in off year elections. The NAACP and Democratic operatives are despicable for trying to use race as an issue to try and gin up racial fear to coral racial manipulation among blacks just to get them out to the polling places
. Most blacks could care less about what the Tea Party is doing or what it is in general. In retrospect, it probably would have been better that conservatives just ignored the NAALCP's resolution. In it's current form, the group really no longer has the influence that it once had when the organization was once actually relevant. Most of the media is interviewing Shirlely Sherrod, because she is now the 15 minute darling of the media. I think of her as the new Levi Johnston or Cindy Shehan. As long as she talks negatively about Fox News or perusing Andrew Breitbart, the media is going to gleefully hang on her every word.
