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.


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.
