John Mayer is close friends with many black women & men. Just so you know. Tiffany Palmer his long time back up singer and Alicia Keys in example. He is also very close to Jay Z and wife Beyoncé. Learn your facts.
"A hundred years ago they used to put on a white sheet and use a bloodhound against Negroes. Today they have taken off the white sheet and put on police uniforms and traded in the bloodhounds for police dogs, and they’re still doing the same thing.”
So the NAACP tried it. Coming into the #MikeBrown tag with some text book deflection and black folk blaming. But twitter was NOT having it
Bless social media because the NAACP’s okey doke is just the kind of soothing pablum the main stream media laps up. But…
Koch brothers must’ve donated again.
wow. just… wow.
So basically they’re blaming black folk and saying black people don’t do anything to prove their valuable.
I get it even more now, they are the Negros Always Asking Caucasian Permission. The NAACP is just another tool of the man. They ain’t revolutionary, they basic.
The NAACP receives funding from rich white people. I’m sure, based upon the money they have individually at this point, new blackness has spread amongst them. This is peak level new blackness.
Have y’all never even read the history of the NAACP?
The NAACP was formed partly in response to the continuing horrific practice of lynching and the 1908 race riot in Springfield, the capital of Illinois and resting place of President Abraham Lincoln. Appalled at the violence that was committed against blacks, a group of white liberals that included Mary White Ovington and Oswald Garrison Villard, both the descendants of abolitionists, William English Walling and Dr. Henry Moscowitz issued a call for a meeting to discuss racial justice. Some 60 people, seven of whom were African American (including W. E. B. Du Bois, Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Mary Church Terrell), signed the call, which was released on the centennial of Lincoln’s birth.
It was created by White people, period. Only 7 of 60 respondents were Black. Seven.The idea itself came from White people and that will always guide its principles because it has always been a matter of being palatable to White politics and White American culture. The NAACP is not for us and will never be for us because it was not made byus.
This is exactly why I want to start an organization myself once I’m in / done with law school and have some capital to get some programs started. Tired of waiting on old ass irrelevant people with backwards ass mindsets to do something that will change mylife and my experience because they’re “past” it. I can’t get “past” the idea that my brother could be shot dead for literally no reason other than some bully with a gun didn’t like him.
They don’t care shit about us because we aren’t the ones cutting those checks. The NAACP is not for us.
We can start that program now! With my idea I’ve been talking about -M
