Please email the following NAACP officers with a message of the importance of integrity in elections, and the value of a vote. Pinkney was voted overwhelmingly into office for a second time just last August. Let that valid election stand! (more after the emails)

Robinson is behind the corrupt attempt to remove Pinkney from office
It comes down to one man, Marcus Robinson, pres. of Whirlpool's "Consortium for Community Development." (Fancy name for
"Buy-off Benton Harbor residents and shut them up.)
Marcus Robinson has initiated a scheme to remove Rev. Edward Pinkney from the office of President of the BH-NAACP. He wants Anthony Jett (BH school board president and Whirlpool stooge) to become president, ASAP. We strongly suspect this has something to do with the PGA tournament in May.
Robinson is more than likely donating money to the Michigan NAACP - they've announced a "special" election this month in order to oust Pinkney - and, Robinson asked Rev. James Atterberry to organize BH church members to join the NAACP and vote against Pinkney. Robinson will pay for any new memberships. Whirlpool money has always greased Benton Harbor palms.
3 emails just rec'd:
--This sounds very similar to what happened in Lafayette, IN to Rev. Paul Barrett at Second Baptist Church. Very familiar story, two different states.
--Isn't it time we saw the handwriting on the wall. What is happening in BH should be a major issue for the national NAACP. Why are we wanting to associate with an organization who cow tow to the status quo?
--information from a Berrien county church goer:
Rev. Pinkney - this is such a corrupt act on Marcus Robinson's part to go behind your back to try to take over the Benton Harbor NAACP and have a secret meeting with James Atterberry. Marcus Robinson targeted Pastor James Biffert at First Assembly Of God (my church) because he knows Pastor James likes to golf.
Marcus Robinson is a disgusting low life who is preying on pastors to side with him and go against you.
Robinson knew that if he could get under a young, naive pastor like Pastor James, then James could convince Pastor Dan to be friends with Robinson and give Robinson the foothold he desperately needs to get inside First Assembly Of God to speak like he did 2 years ago so he could try to corrupt the congregation to believe that Harbor Shores is good. He got up and said, "I know there are a lot of people here who are creative and would start businesses in Harbor Shores. We can attract people to HS and right here to First Assembly Of God, especially since people who come from Chicago off I-94 are attracted to the church with this huge blue roof. It's a powerful vessel here in Berrien County and a growing church."
This idiot used the church platform to sell Harbor Shores and use Pastor Dan, Pastor James and to try to use the congregation to fall for his vicious schemes.
People need to know how convincing and manipulating Marcus Robinson is in using pastors. He could care less about Pastor Dan or Pastor James. He is an opportunist who sees how he can use churches to financially benefit Harbor Shores.
The NAACP and pastors in and around Berrien County, especially St. Joseph and BH, need to know what these two bozos are up to. (Robinson & Atterberry.)
God bless you Rev. Pinkney for all you do and for standing up for freedom and justice.
