NAACP Petition - Disclaimer
DISCLAIMER: Readers may have strong feelings in response to one or more of our links. Please understand the purpose is not to offend, but rather enhance our understanding of how integral reputation is. Organizations such as the NAACP lack credibility within the global village for consistently failing to set and uphold standards within the Black community. Non-negotiable criteria for leadership include accountability and taking care of our own backyards. Standing behind an organization which has lost their way years ago can never advance the cause of minorities. Nor does it honor the memories of so many who paved the road of opportunity for us. Those who do not wish to see Black people as self-sufficient and upwardly mobile will use these inconsistencies as scapegoats for racism.
It was suggested our effect may be stronger if standard capitalization for Naacp was used. However, FB would not allow all caps. We are comfortable with the lower case acronym of “Naacp” because it represents of the decline in respect, regard, esteem, and honor of that organization. Until that organization begins to return to its true mission, their acronym will remain in lower case.
We are not here to make anyone feel comfortable. We desire all to know the truth about the ills within the Black community. We want to know and share the truth and not hide behind racism, bigotry, and race-baiting. If what was said in the article was a lie, we would have legitimate concerns. Our mission is to make those types of commentators out to be liars. Until the NAACP and other Black leadership change their course, there is more to come.
To the NAACP Leadership:
We, the Black women of the United States of America, NWNW®, Black Women Deserve Better™, and all other Black women throughout the world, petition the NAACP to speak out and stand up against the atrocities being committed against our women and children by Black men like lost who gang-raped the 11 year old child in Cleveland, Texas. This madness within the Black community must be addressed and the NAACP has an obligation to demand the Black community be accountable and responsible for its constituents.
There was a time when many of us Black women believed in the ideology of the NAACP. However, when we began to see the NAACP give “image” awards to the likes of R. Kelly (a known pedophile), Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Diddy Dirty Money, Kanye West and B.O.B., it makes many Blacks wonder if the NAACP truly means the National Association for the Advancement of Convicts and Pedophiles?
The NAACP rallies for collective bargaining rights for teachers unions where many school districts have failed our children. When will the NAACP rally for the safety of Black women and children? When will the NAACP rally for Black men to step up and protect their Black women and children? When will the NAACP rally itself to return to its core values and actions?
We, the Black women of the United States of America, NWNW®, Black Women Deserve Better™, and all other Black women throughout the world, implore the NAACP to return to is fundamental mission which is "to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.” This mission should not only be targeted to non-Blacks, but should be the MAIN mission within the Black community because when a gang of over 18 Black men rape an 11 year old child, they are committing racial hatred and racial discrimination against US!
