The NAACP is mad

PHILADELPHIA -- NAACP Chairman Julian Bond yesterday delivered a blistering speech against the Republican Party, accusing it of "playing the race card in election after election."
"Apparently they think we really do all look alike," Mr. Bond said during an opening address at the 95th annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "To hear them, Martin Luther King and Clarence Thomas are the same man."
The address, which in the last several years has been scathingly anti-Republican, has also become widely anticipated and celebrated by the majority of association members since Mr. Bond became chairman in 1998.
Mr. Bond's statements fuel criticism from conservatives that the NAACP, despite its proclamations of nonpartisanship, has become a surrogate for the Democratic Party.

When are the people at the NAACP going to just admit they are part of the democrat party? Anyone with even a little bit of common sense knows they are.

Yesterday Kweisi Mfume said it is "unbelievable" that the president refused to attend their annual meeting. Um, DUH. Would you want to attend a meeting where, no matter what you do, you will be seen as an enemy?

McQ has more.
