organization created in 1909. From
it began through the 1950s and 60s, however, it was a great
organization. That is because it was doing what it was supposed to do: finally give blacks
and civil rights
that they should have
beginning. They could have
received them a long time
ago, but the Jim Crow South
and racists in the North and out west wouldn't acknowledge or respect the 13th-15th
Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, added way back in the 1860s.
But today, the NAACP doesn't even know what they are really doing. Many
members believe that white people hate them, are racists, and don't care
. The fact is, even though there are many
white racist idiots (but nowhere near as many
as there were
only fifty years ago) out there who cause sporadic but few incidents, most
white people don't just tolerate black
people, but they like them. Those same white people (including myself) want them to have equal rights
and civil liberties; many
of them are here to help. I honestly
believe (as well as tens of millions of other people in this nation) that a large number
Americans need to get the chips off their shoulders. Most
likely, nothing serious or even moderately bad will
ever happen to them; times have
changed and so have
peoples' attituded. It's nowhere near as bad as it used to be, and it can only get better.
I love black people, but I don't like the NAACP. Though it is far from the level
of the KKK, I still believe the group is a bad thing, and even keeps us segregated some. It is time to disband it and all other racial-centered organizations and groups. We need equality.
