Delaware lynching

Dear Media Associates:

 Johnny Clark was lynched in Dover Delaware's Silver Lake Park on May 12th, 2012. This followed a leaflething campaign of the local KKK. Last Friday, two white men abducted a black man, and attempted to hang him in the same area.The black male victim was able to escape, but was stabbed in the face and suffered additional injuries. Vice President Biden's son is the Attorney General in Delware, and his underling closed their offices almost one hour early, thus, barring the black man from reporting the hate crime. Today, the law enforcement officials are refusing to accept the report of the victim, and they have refused to investigate who assaulted him on Friday. Please share with everyone. Remember Biden warned blacks about being in chains? He should know because of the racism in his home state. Please contact Jahi Issa 302 465-3787, Mr. Eshed 302 399-9071/302 264-9568, Rev. Ann 302 526-2459, or myself for interviews 731 394-7217.
Yours,
Dr. R. Short

NAACP deaf to needs of chapters and members


On Sundays at 5pm on Pinkney to Pinkney radio program, we continue to hear NAACP stories from callers.   Denise Johnson's son Gregory was killed at San Jose State University in the predominantly white Sigma Chi fraternity which he belonged to.  Ms. Johnson asked the NAACP for help but the organization never returned one of her phone calls.  Mary Neal, about to hand a flyer to Troy Davis's sister at an Atlanta rally, was intentionally shoved by NAACP president Ben Jealous.

NAACP has strayed far from any justice-oriented purpose;  they act as gatekeepers by providing a LACK of service.  NAACP should cease to exist.  It has ceased to advance Black life.  Marketing the organization as advocates for Black people, they do the opposite: shut down chapters which engage in anti-racist activism.

The racism we encounter today is perpetuated by government and corporations, both of which support the prison industrial complex.  The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house.  The NAACP is selling false hope to Black communities, ie, they are pimping those communities with a license from the master.

Whirlpool Corp. took control of the Benton Harbor, Michigan NAACP branch by buying memberships to control the election outcome.  Whirlpool met with Mich. NAACP pres. Yvonne White and made an offer she would not refuse:  money to control the BH election.  In NAACP elections members are required to show voter ID's, something the hypocritical organization is speaking out against for all other elections including the US presidential election.

Our primary goal is to stop NAACP hand-picked Black leaders from misrepresenting African-Americans and our ancestors.  We burn our membership cards every Sunday during the radio program - over 1400 cards burned so far.

Fascism in Benton Harbor, Michigan (and Berrien County)

Fascism is the union of government with private business against the People.

"To The States, or any one of them, or to any city of The States: Resist much, Obey little. Once unquestioning obedience, at once fully enslaved. Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city, ever afterward resumes its liberty." -from "Caution" by Walt Whitman

Benton Harbor, Michigan is under a fascist regime

Benton Harbor is a city within the USA where Fascism has been implemented, under an unelected dictatorship which enacts the will of the monopolist corporations. A simple web search for'Benton Harbor Whirlpool' will show you exactly what is happening. Their law is goverened by judges acting criminally to increase their personal profits.

The NAACP is no longer relevant

The NAACP is doing very little to organize and help the African-American community. They are living in the past and reaping the benefits of our ancestors. Our ancestors have been betrayed by a group of greedy and dishonest middle class African-Americans. The majority of them are concerned about material things and fronting for the status quo.


Too many African-Americans have been forced out of the NAACP, ignored by the NAACP, expelled from the NAACP, and labeled by mainstream media because they work to achieve the NAACP goals. The NAACP is not operating in good faith. The NAACP is robbing the Black community. The NAACP is misrepresenting the Black community.


We demand Corporate America and other institutions to stop giving money to the NAACP with the intent of helping African-Americans. We demand the NAACP publish the names of institutions and the amount of money received from corporations during the past two decades.


We demand corporations in all states publish the amount of money given to the NAACP at the local, state, regional and national levels.


We demand the NAACP stop putting money before the needs of members and African-Americans.

Now is the time to change the rules of the game to ensure that African-Americans understand how the NAACP operates.


NAACP lost influence by allowing corporate dollars to control them. NAACP no longer supports the communities. THE NAACP IS NO LONGER RELEVANT.


We are starting a new organization all across the country.
BANCO - Black Autonomy Network Community Organization
There are currently four branches.

The African American Voice is proud to provide our readers and individuals seeking justice and equality with this resource list. I often hear from people with complaints and have tried to get help from the NAACP. The stories are the same, "I went to the NAACP, they didn't help me." Some one told me to call Mr. Tucker. I urge you to take action by filing formal complaints with federal agencies that have the power to hold institutions accountable. Please stop complaining and file a formal complaint. These agencies are very effective.

NAACP has to take a long hard look at itself

NAACP in Michigan appears to be acting against the interests of the African-American community in Benton Harbor, MI, and instead to have been co-opted by the corporate interests, specifically Whirlpool, to destroy this long-established African-American community, to turn it into a golf course for the rich.
In a lesser example, this one closer to my home, I see that an NAACP Annual Conference brochure contains an advertisement from Walmart. Walmart! - a very profitable corporation known for its low wages, for cheating its workers of overtime pay, for abusive treatment.
What has become of the NAACP, the long-standing champion of social justice and equality for African-Americans and people of color?
I had been working hard over the past several months to reactivate a local chapter of NAACP in my area. But I find the reported actions of NAACP in Benton Harbor, MI to be dishonest and reprehensible.
I believe NAACP has to take a long hard look at itself, and to cease choosing the corporate agenda over the rights of African-Americans and peoples of color in our country.

NAACP takes billions from predatory lenders (and corporations such as Whirlpool)

It's time to expose the NAACP for who and what they really are. Thank you to bloggers Faye Anderson, Mary Neal, Sundiata Sadiq, and Dr. Boyce Watkins for exposing the NAACP selling out black folks.
Wells Fargo is not the only predatory lender the NAACP has taken money from to continue ripping off black folks. I am talking about billions and billions of dollars of home equity - hundreds of thousands of foreclosures.
The NAACP has decided to team up with not only Wells Fargo, but many predatory lenders.

Ben Jealous, NAACP president, should be on his knees begging forgiveness of Shirley Sherrod

...Shirley Sherrod, the (former) GA State Director of the USDA, gave a speech on March 27, 2010 at a Georgia NAACP chapter function...[view speech at above website]
...the USDA gets wind of [the video of her speech], and immediately asks for resignation (read: fired her). The NAACP gets wind of the situation, and issues a press release agreeing with the USDA firing Sherrod.
Then...Sherrod starts doing interviews explaining how her comments were taken so far out of context that it sounds like a completely different speech... All of a sudden the NAACP decides it might be time to review the actual video (of their event) and before you know it? Backpedal city...
...In a perfect world, Ben Jealous...would be on his knees begging for the forgiveness of the woman [he] slandered. (end of exerpts)

The NAACP IS A TOTAL SELL OUT TO BLACK FOLKS.
