The NAACP, is it still relevant ? Respond to

Send responses to: Pinkney Freddie < >
Here's the most important question people 
can ask about the NAACP:  Is it relevant?

On Sunday August 19, 2012 more than 850 members of the NAACP burned their membership cards on the Pinkney to Pinkney show and are no longer members. 
Eight states and four branches in Michigan participated. On Sunday August 26, 2012 we will continue to burn membership cards across the country, and continue every Sunday thereafter at 5:30 pm.
My belief is that the NAACP has made itself irrelevant.  By taking money from Whirlpool and other corporations it has lost influence;  it is now obligated to the corporate agenda, not the social justice agenda.
Giant Food Inc.
In Maryland, black employees sued Giant Food Inc. after several complaints of discrimination had been lodged.  When the employees sought assistance from the NAACP, they were rebuffed.  It was later discovered that Giant Food Inc. donated $25,000.00 to the local NAACP in a successful attempt to quash their legal involvement on the side of the black plaintiffs.
After repeated incidences of discrimination at the restaurant chain, the Baltimore NAACP Chapter gave Denny's the corporation-of-the-year award after donations were given by the restaurant corporation.  The American Directory of Certified Uncle Toms is a book which reports on this, and other instances of discrimination.
Other corporations pay NAACP

Many corporations have made large donations to the NAACP to stop the organization from suing them for discrimination.  Several are Auto Zone, Wells Fargo, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and General Motors.
Voter ID laws
The head of the NAACP compared the group's fight against voter ID laws that have been passed in several states to the 1960's civil rights struggles. What a hypocrite organization. In order to vote in any NAACP election, you must have a picture ID.  What a hypocrite organization.
The NAACP is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
--If you have one or two minutes, please call or email the National NAACP and ask questions;  for example, what is your position on vote-buying?  (it just happened in Benton Harbor, MI, see  Or, ask anything you can think of!
