NAACP Tracks Tea Party - Who is tracking them?

AAP says: "There goes that colored organization again. Yes, the NAACP has nothing else to do with it's time but to track the Tea Party. Someone should be tracking the NAACP for all the money they get from corporate America. These folks at the national office of the NAACP need to be held accountable. Black folks need to be asking what has the NAACP done with the money Wells Fargo and others gave them, to sell out the black community."

Yes I said it!

Yes, as reported by Krissah Thompson over at The Washington Post, this what I would call,  "out of of control" so-called "colored" civil rights group has partnered with three liberal media Web sites to form a "tea party tracker" intent on monitoring "racism and other forms of extremism" within the tea party movement.

Get this, Krissah Thompson also reports; ":The online project, which was developed and branded by the NAACP's new media staff, has already drawn strong criticism from tea party supporters, who have said repeatedly that racism plays no role in their movement. Hilary Shelton, director of the NAACP's Washington bureau, said the project was started because NAACP leaders kept hearing from its members that they were seeing racist signs, T-shirts and commentary coming from the tea party movement."

Can you believe this, "NAACP leaders kept hearing from its members that they were seeing racist signs, T-shirts and commentary coming from the tea party movement." You got to be kidding me, this is such a contradiction.

As Black Agenda Report points out, is this the same NAACP which is all made up with Wells Fargo, the Black community-killing corporation that destroyed untold thousands of African American families through systematic predatory lending. Read More HERE

As Glen Ford over at Black Agenda Report points out:

 "The NAACP first sued Wells Fargo, but then dropped the case after the corporation agreed to allow the civil rights group to review its lending practices. And, oh, yes, there was another aspect of the deal: Wells Fargo would be a co-lead sponsor of the NAACP’s convention. All it takes is a fat check and a world class institutionally racist corporation that undermined the very survivability of Black communities from coast to coast, gets to bask in the glow of the nation’s oldest civil rights organization. And, why not? The executives of Wells Fargo are not the kind of guys to say the N-word in public. They just destroy whole Black neighborhoods in the bright light of day."

Now the NAACP is tracking the Tea Party instead of addressing real issues impacting black America. I don't get it. As America reels over double-digit jobless rates, when black males are looking at numbers almost twice as worse. The NAACP is tracking the Tea Party for comments it makes against Obama?There is clearly a real leadership void at the national office of the NAACP. It's been like that for some time.
