I want to go on the internet record and state clearly that I find it absolutely appalling where the NAACP is seriously considering going.
I say that as yes, a white guy,but I also say it NOT as a tea-partier. Most importantly in my opinion I say it as a guy who loves reading about Booker T Washington and W.E.B. Dubois.That’s the God honest truth.
I find those pages of history highly interesting and moving.Not to sound pompous or anything,ya know being a white guy,but I find their stories interesting examples of how different paths in history and paths chosen, or not taken ala Frosts poem are so real. What is,what could have been,what was gained and what lost????
Along those lines I am fairly sure something will be forever lost if the NAACP goes the condemnation route. Although I don’t hold much faith in the present credibility of the NAACP I do indeed still have moments of optimism.I hope they don’t vote for the measure and instead take the path that looks for unity and relevance in the pursuit of justice and dialog.
