The futility of the civil rights experiment.

In 2010, the national NAACP had issued a demand that the Tea Party expel all “racists” from within its ranks.[1]
What such an expulsion might do to the membership of the Congressional Black Caucus is anybody's guess but we'll leave that for a later time.

Be that as it may, it seems to be too much to ask the NAACP to apply the same standard and disassociate itself from the Reverend Curtis Everette Gatewood, for whom the monicker of "buffoon" is too kind.

[After 9/11, President Gatewood] pledged the support of his [Durham, N.C.] NAACP chapter to the African People’s Socialist Party/Uhuru Movement, a black separatist organization that seeks to foment a violent revolution to create an independent black nation on U.S. soil. . . .

. . . One of Gatewood and the Uhurus’ invited speakers [at a 2009 D.C. demonstration] was Pam Africa, president of Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal and formerly a member of the MOVE black power cult. At the demonstration, to thundering applause, Africa repeatedly called Obama a “nigger motherfucker” and “head nigger,” inciting the crowd that he has to be “taken down.” Another participant, Larry Hales, dedicated his speech to the Muslim gunman who, only two days earlier, had cold-bloodedly murdered thirteen people at Fort Hood. . . .[2]

Slightly off topic, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. appeared with Gatewood at a May 13 [2015] Rally for Racial and Environmental Justice in Raleigh, N.C.[3] To my way of thinking this raises "questions" about Mr. Kennedy's judgment. Appearing with a black separatist seems not to trouble him or earn him any kind of obloquy from our lickspittle press toads.

However, when Sen. Trent Lott had some kind things to say about Sen. Strom Thurmond a while back every last earthly and imagined sin of Thurmond (primarily the Spanish Inquisition and lynching) was ascribed to Lott instantly, but Kennedy's appearing with this joke of a black rabble rouser appears not to have caused a ripple on any leftist pond.

Back to the main point: It's a puzzle, it is. If anyone can tweeze out of Mr. Cole's article below any evidence that the efforts of whites to work out a modus vivendi with our resident Africans is working, let me know. Personally, I'm not seeing it. No. I am not. As Old Rebel at Rebellion notes about all of this, "in the DC Empire, the NAACP is mainstream." Baltimore and Ferguson are just instances of morons, savages, and Soros rent-a-thugs having a little fun. The NAACP, however, is the Holy Grail of black moral and political thinking.
