As a Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP you need to do your homework as it relates to what the NAACP stands for. Those of you who are ignant to what the NAACP mission, vision statement and objectives are you need to read it before you open your mouth and make a damn fool of yourself.
As it relates to Rev. Al Sharpton and some other activist you need to understand what role they play also.
I was looking at WHIG TV Morning Show on Monday night and David Joyner talked about his brother getting killed in Rocky Mount. A white caller called in talking about he was not trying to stir up anything but he wanted to know why the NAACP, the Rev. Al Sharpton’s and others don’t speak up about black on black crime. However that is totally false.
As it relates to David Joyner’s brother getting killed show me how the NAACP’s mission, vision statement and objectives relate. The NAACP get involved in things when people come to them and fill out a complaint as it relates to the mission, vision statement and objectives.
Rev. Al Sharpton was called to Sanford Florida by the family to come down to help them with the exposure. Rev. Al could not have gone to Florida and done a damn thing without the family working with him. He would be ignant as hell to go to Florida without the family’s permission.
Recently I received a phone call about an incident dealing with some young students and was anybody doing anything about it? I said I can’t get involved if the parents do not allow me to get involved because first of all it is a personnel manner and I don’t know all the facts just what I read in the local papers and heard in the community. Only a damn fool would try to fight a cause when they have not heard from those involved and being given permission to work with them.
To all the ignant folks who talk about what black folks especially the NAACP, the Rev. Al Sharptons and folks like myself who have been labeled by ignant white and black folks I challenge black, brown, white and other folks all the time. My blog speaks to it. I have been calling in and have hosted radio and tv shows speaking out about issues be they black, brown, white and/or other.
When it comes to the local radio and tv talk shows so many folks are afraid to call in and respond to the ignant callers. I work during the day so therefore I miss the shows unless I just happen to be off work on a give day. However I look at a local tv talk show every night but it is pre-recorded so I can’t call in. Damn this bothers me because the ignant folks are winning because many times no one calls in and challenge them.
I will continue to be speak up about issues and people and don’t give a damn who gets mad.
Note: Know that being ignant is not always a bad thing, however it is a bad thing when you don’t do anything about it especially when you are trying to discredit others. Know what you are talking about when you open your mouth so you will not make a damn fool out of yourself.
