A now-obsolete organization created in 1909. From the time 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 their equal and civil rights that they should have had from the very 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 about black civil rights. 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 of black 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.
