From the Los Angeles Times:

In a move that some called historic, the county’s oldest African American civil rights group voted Saturday to endorse same-sex marriage.

The National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People passed a resolution supporting gay marriage at a meeting of its board of directors in Miami, saying it opposed any policy or legislative initiative that “seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the constitutional rights of LGBT citizens.”

Directors of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force erupted in applause at their board meeting Saturday as their phones buzzed with the news.

“Today is a historic day,” Rea Carey, executive director of the task force, said a phone interview from Seattle. “This is what leadership looks like in this country.”

The vote marks a national turning point on the issue of gay marriage. President Obama announced this month that he supports gay marriage. A Gallup Poll last year found, for the first time in the poll’s history, that a majority of Americans supported the legalization of gay marriage, 53% to 45%. This year, the poll showed 50% supported it, while 48% opposed it.

“Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law,” Benjamin Todd Jealous, president and CEO of the 103-year-old NAACP said in a statement.

“The NAACP’s support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people.”

While tragic, it is not at all surprising that the NAACP has taken a course of action that is at odds with the 62% of the black community mentioned in the article, who oppose such unions on religious grounds.

In New York City, 60% of black pregnancies end in abortion and authentic African American leaders such as Dr. Alveda King and the Reverends Catherine Davis, Walter Hoye, Stephen Broden, Clenard Childress, Michael Faulkner, Arnold Culbreth, Dr. LaVerne Tolbert, and Ryan Bomberger (to name a few), cannot get a hearing by the people Rea Carey calls “real leadership.”

With 6/10 of New York Blacks never seeing the light of day, and similar statistics elsewhere, African Americans are locked into what can only be assessed as demographic suicide. The NAACP leadership has thrown in with the same Democrat party that funds Planned Parenthood nationally with a third of a billion dollars annually; and it is this same Planned Parenthood that has been operating some 78% of their centers in minority neighborhoods, commensurate with Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project.

Now this.

It is tempting to assess the NAACP’s recent vote as an indiscriminate siding with anyone who is oppressed. However, if that were so, the NAACP would be joining the Catholic Church and other religious faiths in opposing the HHS contraceptive mandate, which is actually a war on religion.

The truth is that the American people stood by passively and consented to gays and lesbians being granted all of the goods and privileges society once reserved for married couples, everything from adoption rights to shared employment benefits, domestic partnerships protecting housing rights, etc.

The truth is that gays and lesbians were handed everything but a marriage license. We now see the emerging agenda with the emerging punitive measures against military chaplains opposed to performing such weddings.

The truth is that heterosexuals have been far more tolerant and permissive than the gay community is now behaving, and that the NAACP has missed the opportunity to address the new discrimination in America: Gay intolerance of authentic Judeo-Christian morality. It is an intolerance that, to use the NAACP’s words, “seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the constitutional rights of,” traditional Christians.

The truth is that it isn’t leadership being demonstrated by the NAACP. It’s something far worse. I’ve heard the assessments range from sheer cluelessness to something sinister. With almost 2/3 of the people it purports to “lead” opposing same-sex marriage on religious grounds, the NAACP has joined in President Obama’s war on religion. Dragging one’s members by the hair is not the same as leading. Neither is neglecting the demographic suicide that has gripped their community.

This weekend the association purporting the “Advancement of Colored Persons,” ceased to exist. Not willing to address their membership’s demographic suicide, they have thrown in with a president bent on reshaping the Christian faith that sustained them during slavery and the Jim Crow era, as well as the authentic and noble struggle for civil rights. In so doing, the NAACP has abdicated the sacred trust that once made them the noblest and most honorable institution in the United States of America.

The African American community in America, as many other quarters in America, has real needs, real problems that call for real, fresh, and imaginative leadership. Becoming embroiled in a war on the Christian roots of its membership and much of the nation has only cemented in the minds of many the image of an organization that has become thoroughly radicalized.

The rest of the nation should take heart that there are many, many other black leaders committed to authentic equality that respects the constitutional rights of all citizens. We turn now to those leaders and seek the way forward together, a way that is characterized by mutual support and respect.

From Lifenews.com:

Atlanta, GA (LifeNews.com) — The Georgia chapter of the NAACP has withdrawn its support for a bill advancing in the state legislature that would ban abortions done specifically because the child is African-American. Although the civil rights organization opposes racial discrimination, that apparently doesn’t extend to abortions.

The Georgia NAACP had originally endorsed SB 529, which also targets abortions done because the unborn child is a girl.

The Georgia House Judiciary Committee voted 10-8 on Wednesday to support the bill and send it to the Rules Committee, but it now won’t have the support of the black group.

Edward DuBose, chapter president, issued a statement withdrawing the support, saying, “Earlier this month, the Georgia NAACP submitted a letter to support Senate Bill 529. We now fully understand the intention of this legislation and wish to retract our support for it.”

“At the time, we were of the understanding that this bill would work to benefit the women in our community. However, after many conversations with membership and constituents, we now realize that this is nothing more than using women’s health as a political tool,” he said, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper. “Women of color in Georgia need more than divisive messages and deserve better access to health care.”

The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, which also helps stop abortions in cases when women are forced or coerced into having one, has already received backing from Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’ve never sold out the truth to political correctness, and I’m not about to start here. There has never been a shortage of traitors from within the Black community. It would seem there’s a bumper crop now. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) has rendered themselves a vicious, yet buffoonish joke, having given their imprimatur to the continued slaughter of their own babies. While constituting 11% of the American population, Blacks have 37% of all abortions, some 19 million since 1973.

Some advancement.

No doubt the women who had those abortions are all living at least lower middle-class lifestyles, having taken full advantage of the educational and economic opportunities that come to those unencumbered by children. Hardly. The inner city is more bleak and blighted than ever before.

Truth be told, I have some difficulties with the language of the bill not including ALL indiivduals being targeted because of some identifying characteristic. The practical value of this bill is that it could have been used to leverage Planned Parenthood out of the inner city, where they operate 80% of their ‘clinics’. Taken together with the revelations that PP was accepting donations to be earmarked for aborting Black babies, this bill could have damaged these racists terribly.

However, the biggest sell-out Black of all time happens to occupy the Oval Office, and he is the most virulent pro-abortion politician and President in American history. The NAACP isn’t about to leave B.O. twisting in the wind. There are 2 1/2 years left to this Presidency and plenty of careers yet to be enhanced. So the sell-outs will see Black babies pay with their lives.

It’s all over for leftist Black activism after this President exits the stage into what I pray will be a long life of hearing how he managed to end up at the bottom of the barrel of American Presidents. The NAACP couldn’t screw up the courage to decry the presence of Margaret Sanger’s disciples doing her racist and eugenic bidding in their neighborhoods. They (NAACP) are as elitist and parasitic as any plantation owners ever were. If the slave owners couldn’t be forgiven for not recognizing the humanity of Blacks, what shall we say of the NAACP?

Fratricide is a far greater crime than genocide.
