Pathetic … NAACP Ignores South Carolina’s Tim Scott & Utah’s Mia Love’s Historic 2014 Election Wins (Video)
What does NAACP stand for … Advancement of Colored People, I guess it only matters if they are liberal Democrats.
The NAACP should be ashamed of itself. The following was a statement provided by Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP following the 2014 midterm elections:
“This election was not about who won but the rather the citizens who lost the right to participate. This first election post the Shelby vs. Holder decision resulted in problems in every single state previously protected by the Voting Rights Act. For 49 years, these states were singled out because they had a history of discriminating against American voters. The Election Protection Hotline we manned with other concerned organizations fielded over 18,000 calls yesterday, many in those same states previously protected by the VRA. As we move forward—it is imperative that our newly elected Congress work with the NAACP and our partners to pass Voting Rights Act Amendment legislation that assures that all Americans have the franchise—our very democracy depends on it.”
What the NAACP failed to mention in their post 2014 election statement was the historic wins by Tim Scott and Mia Love. Are you kidding me? How do you not celebrate all blacks, no matter whether you happen to agree or not with their politics. Tim Scott’s win on Tuesday, November 4th made him the first African-American elected to the US Senate from the South since Reconstruction. That is quite an accomplishment. Also, the NAACP failed to mention that Mia Love was the first black Republican woman to be elected to the House of Representatives.
How does an organization that claims to be about the advancement of blacks fail to mention such note worthy and historic accomplishments? Sadly, the NAACP is all about liberal politics, not the advancement of a race.
