The NAACP is a historically important organization that has played a key role in passage of all Civil Rights legislation in this country. It's a shame to see that they've degenerated into an organization that gives "Man of the Year" awards to men like Don King.

The NAACP has been irrelevant for years. The only ones who don't realize it (or refuse to accept it) are the NAACP's leaders.

zippy: You're referring to the guy down in Texas who was one of the bigwigs in that state in the NAACP (can't remember his name, not worth the effort to look the b@stard up). Yes, he was fired the next day for his disparaging remarks about Jews in reference to the Democratic VP candidate, but it was NOT the first time he had made such remarks!! That's the part that might get left out -- he was a well known anti-Semite prior to that incident yet he was still the head of that NAACP chapter. Way to go.

The American Library Association had granted then access to Library's in California for meetings and 'Public Information Seminars.'

It was Christians who led the charge against this. Many took part, but they were by far the largest group speaking out.

They now have a skateboarding magazine in general circualtion that promotes sex at an early age and is partly funded by them.

Gays were not 'mainstream' 10 years ago.....
