Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Is the NAACP relevant?

Here's the most important question people can ask about the NAACP: is it relevant?

My belief is that it has made itself irrelevant. By taking money from Whirlpool and other corporations, it has lost influence; it is now obligated to the corporate agenda, not the social justice agenda.

Giant Food Inc.

In Maryland, black employees sued Giant Food Inc. after several complaints of discrimination had been lodged. When the employees sought assistance from the NAACP, they were rebuffed. It was later discovered that Giant Food Inc. donated $25,000.00 to the local NAACP in a successful attempt to quash their legal involvement on the side of the black plaintiffs.

Denny's

After repeated incidences of discrimination at the restaurant chain, the Baltimore Chapter gave Denny's the corporation-of-the-year award after donations were given by the restaurant corporation. Read this book: The American Directory of Certified Uncle Toms. The Denny's story is reported there, as are many other stories.

Voter ID laws

The head of the NAACP compared the group's fight against voter ID laws that have been passed in several states to the 1960's civil rights struggles.

What a hypocrite organization. In order to vote in any NAACP election, you must have a picture. What a hypocrite organization.

The NAACP is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
