African Americans are “sort of a mongrel people - WTF!

Now why did President Obama have to use those wacko choice of words: telling daytime talk show hosts that African-Americans are “sort of a mongrel people.”

Faye Anderson over at the blog Anderson at Large is having none of this, on her Facebook Page she said: "The presumed inferiority of the so-called "mongrel people" is a longstanding tenet of the John Birch Society and other white supremacy groups. If a Republican or tea partier had called President Obama a mongrel, black folks would be calling on the ...NAACP to denounce them? 

I agree with Faye, when the white supremacy groups, KKK, Tea Party folks, Rush Limbaugh. and others put up signs calling President Obama a mongrel, the NAACP get's pissed.

AAPP:" The President, bless his heart, seems to be in full identity crisis mode, and wants to pull black folks into is own crisis."

Let's see what the NAACP has to say about our President, who still seems to have an identity crisis.

AAPP: My mom and dad never said we are part of some Mongrel Race! The President has bagage and identity issues.

OBAMA: Well, you know, when I was young and going through the identity crisis that any teenager goes through -- I wrote a book about this.

WALTERS: Yes. ... We all read it.

OBAMA: You know, part of what I realized was that if the world saw me as African American, then that wasn't something that I needed to run away from. That's something that I could go ahead and embrace. And the interesting thing about the African-American experience in this country is that we are sort of a mongrel people. I mean, we're all kind of mixed up.


OBAMA: Now, that's actually true for white America as well, but we just know more about it. And so I'm less interested in how we label ourselves. I'm more interested in how we treat each other. And if we're treating each other right, then I can be African American, I can be multiracial, I can be you name it. What matters is, am I showing people respect? Am I caring for other people? That's, I think, the message we want to send.

AAPP:  I agree with Tony Campbell over at the moderate voice.com who writes, "I do not ever remember having a conversation with my parents about being part of a mongrel people. I am not white but I wouldn’t imagine a conversation like that taking place around the dinner table or playing catch in the backyard. I do not like being categorized as a mongrel. It is a ridiculous and insulting statement. If George W. Bush, or another white politician said those words, the NAACP, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be all over the airwaves calling for a public apology. I am not part of a “mongrel people.” This is not how you have a discussion on race relations. I expect better judgment from the President of the United States. If this is how he sees African-Americans, perhaps it is time for them to find a new candidate."

What do you think America, should the President call blacks out like that. Are we suppose to be called out as animals by the first black President?

Black Bloggers Vs NAACP

When black bloggers or Black journalist say that Barack Obama or Ben Jealous of the NAACP are not speaking to issues that are important to African Americans, the sparks fly

Black bloggers and Black Journalist may even be called anti-black. Read the attack on Jack and Jill Politics in the comments section of Field Negroes blog. These diehard colored  extremist shock me every day! Then they get mad if I call them colored. when the organization the are die hard supporters that call themselves colored - The NAA of Colored People. 

Maybe they are just a 2010 group lead by a young green eyed monster? What do you think?

It's interesting that when white Journalist say Obama does not have enough black on their staff, or The Obama White House is too white - that's - not a problem. 

When a black blogger or Journalist says the same thing, you're... anti-black.

What is truly another disgrace is these die hard NAACP and Obama supporters who don't like black folks speaking their minds, as we question the NAACP or the Obama administration.   

Yes, I admit I said the National President of the NAACP is disgrace and a sell-out and should consider resigning as President of the NAACP.

Yes,  I admit that I said he is part of the new crew of colored people advancing their own agenda, not a black empowerment or capacity building agenda. 

Now why do I have to be attacked for having my own opinion by Kevin M., a Branch President of the NAACP on my Facebook Page. Check out the interaction:

Kevin said: "AAPP, it IS certainly you're right to do so and I for one would not insult you for being critical. However, when you continuously return to the meme "what has the NAACP done since the 60's?", I for one question whether you are as...king a real question or just being intentionally inflammatory.

AAPP: @Kevin: I have no reason on earth to be intonally inflamatory. I am not the only one asking real questions about the National Office of the NAACP and it's lack of leadership. Infact, one would have to wonder why the President of the NAACP was intentionally inflammatory, in order to get it's name in the news by electronically lynching a black women - Shirley Sherrod...

Update: and others


Kevin Said: What have we done? Really? I will just speak for my little band of folks out here in Kansas when I say that in just the last 2 years we've registered around 700 voters, wrote a couple state laws, blocked a bill designed to block health care reform, pushed for changes to the State voter registration system, helped countless folks with their census forms, spoke to hundreds of school children about leadership, built a world-class debate and oratory program for neighborhood kids, pushed to have our district locate the state's only elementary IB program right in the HEART of our community, investigated more than a hundred discrimination cases, developed our own rehabilitation program for children in Juvenile detention, and brought together 35 community organizations to pool our talents and resources and solve our own community problems, among other things...

AAPP@ Kevin: I salute the great work of a number of local branches who do great work and are able to to show outcomes for their collective efforts. Now I read you don't want my congratulations - so be it. Not a problem, there are real community builders in my local community to congratulate and support.

Kevin said: Now yes AAPP, it IS certainly your right as an American citizen to continue to call us fools, disgraceful, ignorant, worthless and all the other names you like to banty about on your blog... But just know that those responses you're receiving are coming from folks who are ALSO exercising THEIR rights as Americans to question you as to what have you actually done besides call black people who are volunteering in their communities a bunch of names on the internet.

AAPP@ Kevin: I have no problem with folks asking what I have done lately. My record in community development and community capacity building throughout the country is an open book, if people want to know, just hit my up privately and we can discuss my body of work in community development. I have been in the trenches, even before many of these so called activist were born.

Kevin: Here's the part where you usually make the distinction between the local and National office... But you know what - you shouldn't.. The NAACP is an Association of 2,200 branches just like mine. Sometimes awesome, and sometimes awful... but we are a network of 400,000 folks who are volunteering our own time and resources to make our communities better. And we are all coming together and saying goodbye to our past divisions.. So if you are talking about "our" President, "our" chairman, "our" national Board, or "our" national staff, please don't single me out for any type of singular appreciation - I don't want it.

AAPP@Kevin: Yes, you have a network of 400,000 but the national office cant even put together a blog, or an internet networking vehicle to do grassroot organizing. How pathetic!

Kevin: Now I know calling us a bunch of names is still good for building your readership - I ain't mad at ya... do your thing. But just know as a community, we seem to be reaching a 'tipping point'. I'm out in the community every day and I can tell you that a lot of us are simply getting weary of the "Let me demonstrate my independence by attacking Black people" routine... Pretty soon my brother, you're going to have to get a new gig.


By the way, I'm not the only one who thinks the NAACP has been a failure for over 40 years.

Please read Dewayne Wickman'sBlackChristianNews.com


Yes, Kevin, you're right we seem to be reaching a Tipping Point. and the NAACP may just go the way of F.W. Woolworth's.  Yes, you're right there are some that need new gigs. The current President of the NAACP is the one that needs to get the new gig. He is the one that attacked a black woman, Shirley Sherrod... without cause...

But I guess you have not been following current events...


The national office of the NAACP has no credability! Now it sends out it's goof balls to attack me. Read what the NAACP had to say about George Wallace, Robert Byrd and other bigots who have destroyed the lifes of countless black folks and how they were snookered by of all people FOX News.

These have to be some real stupid bastards at the national office to watch Fox News and believe it.

NAACP Press Release:

The NAACP also has long championed and embraced transformation by people who have moved beyond racial bias. Most notably, we have done so for late Alabama Governor George Wallace and late US Senator Robert Byrd -- each a man who had associated with and supported white supremacists and their cause before embracing civil rights for all.

With regard to the initial media coverage of the resignation of USDA Official Shirley Sherrod, we have come to the conclusion we were snookered by Fox News and Tea Party Activist Andrew Breitbart into believing she had harmed white farmers because of racial bias.

AAPP: Pathetic! Robert Bird? George Wallace? Transformed? 

This NAACP National Office is so... Pathetic... 

As one Chicago Sun Times reader recently wrote: Shame on those members of the Obama team and the NAACP who overreacted to the edited video and misleading blog about Shirley Sherrod's speech. Are they really so naive

No wonder so many people believe the NAACP has lost it's way. The national NAACP has been so disorganized for years. How long will this new young and inexperienced NAACP President last? Hopefully not for long. The last NAACP President only lasted 19 months.
The fact of the matter is the relatatively new President of the NAACP brought shame to the NAACP, yet it gratuitously uses the occasion to bash black bloggers for calling them out.

Robert Bird? George Wallace? Transformed? Whatever. 

Robert Bird was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter. After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his early political career. Though he claimed to have left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group's Imperial Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." Byrd defended the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.

Despite being the only Senator to vote against both African American U.S. Supreme Court nominees (liberal Thurgood Marshall and conservative  Clarence Thomas and filibustering the Civilm Rights Act of 1964, the NAACP supported this man who would lynch black men, women and children. Byrd has since said joining the Klan was his "greatest mistake" and the NAACP gave him a 100% rating on their issues.


The National NAACP needs to transform itself and back it's attack dogs off of this blogger.

Oh, that's right, the NAACP attack dog (Kevin M) recently lost a bid to become a member of the board, and will take any action he can to show he is worthy of a seat in the future.

As Kevin said on his NAACP Chapter blog, "Sometimes success comes in stages and this was just the first stage of my road onto the board. ;)" 

I'm coming back bigger and stronger than ever!"

AAPP says: I guess that "bigger and stronger" can be accomplished by attacking me and other black bloggers bro Kevin?  In the name of getting an NAACP Board seat, let me attack a fellow afrospear blogger. Following in the Footsteps of Ben Jealous? Attack when you don't know the facts? Or attack those who say the NAACP is out of step with the needs of the black community.

Well Mr. NAACP Kevin M you won't be able to attack me on my own Facebook page anymore. You have been banned!



UPDATE: As reported by another black blogger, Gina, at What About Our Daughters
the NAACP Legal Goons have Invaded WAOD comments section following calls for Jealous to resign.  

See, I knew I was not the only person under attack by the NAACP and their representatives.
UPDATE: OK, It's just not black bloggers who are seriously questioning the NAACP.

Vanity Fair's Judy Bachrach says that perhaps it's time for the NAACP to step aside and let a more competent, more relevant organization fight the racial disparity battles that remain.
She makes some interesting points when she wrote: "There are 38 million African-Americans in the United States, and fewer than *300,000 are NAACP members clearly demonstrating a growing distance between leaders and possible constituents. I’m not suggesting every last minority issue has dissolved. Far from it. The median income of African-American citizens is still the lowest of all in this country — 40 percent less than that of the general population — and that disparity needs to be redressed."

*AAPP, I have my doubts about that number, it probably is closer to 100,000 members, if that, who are members of this neanderthal NAACP group.
