It creates a need so that it can exist.
It's leaders prosper by creating racism and segregation.

If their goal is really "advancement" they could do better.

It will be a great day when the NAACP is no longer needed.

You avoided the question! Are you suggesting that sometimes it's "needed" to have racists groups?

I don't think the NAACP is a racist organization and they are needed to combat racism.

So, how do you feel about the NAACP's endorsement of the IRS to target Taxed Enough Already groups?

No, being proud of your race is fine. They are a great Republican organization.

No. It doesn't proclaim that blacks as a race are *better* than anyone else.

so you would be okay with an organization made to help middle class white kids called the National White People's Org?

If white people in the US were struggling to move forward from a history of oppression, that would be a fine organization. But they aren't. I will *welcome* the day when the NAACP is defunct, but I don't think we're there yet.

you don't think blacks are whites are treated fairly? define fair? being picked over a white kid in college?

Susan ... so, if you determine that someone is disadvantaged then they can have a group, but if you feel they aren't disadvantaged, then they can't?

Yes they call African Americans Color. What would they call Hispanic America? What would they a call Egyptian Americans?

No. Didn't we just have this question?

Sorry, I didn't see an earlier instance.

I'm curious how you can say it not a racist organization. Would you consider a group called the National Association for the Advancement of WHITE People to be racist?

If it red white people instead of colored people would it be racist

Yes, in America that's unacceptable, you obviously are just a Nazi at that point.
