NAACP Struggles for Relevance in the Post-Civil-Rights Era
If the NAACP means anything it means “high yella” mulatto front men behind a donor base dominated by Liberal Jews pulling the strings from the shadows.
This was the magic formula in the old days when campaigners wanted a more sympathetic subject than “oppressed” Jewish financiers and “downtrodden” Semitic millionaires in the push for “civil rights” and an America separated from its original White and Christian identity. It worked a treat.
But like a lot of organizations that enjoyed their peak during the Cold War period—the ADL, SPLC, NATO, etc.—the NAACP is having a little trouble finding an authentic role for itself in a world that no longer needs it by its own criteria—a victim of its own success.
In recent years the group has been drifting aimlessly, becoming venerable, dull, and respectable in a stultifying way. Meanwhile, the Black activist energy has shifted into the SJW-hysteria-inspired model of #BlackLivesMatter.
If you want to reflect on how out of the loop the NAACP is now, just consider the fact that its acronym isn’t written with a hashtag and the C in its name stands for “Colored,” a veritable Uncle Tom of a word. No wonder #BLM is making all the running!
There is a general feeling in the
movement moribund organization that things have to be shaken up, hence the decision at the 108th national convention just held in Baltimore to appoint Derrick Johnson, a Black man who actually looks like a Black man, to serve as interim president and chief executive officer.
Compared to previous President, Cornell William Brooks, who was voted out in May after only three years in the job, Johnson has much less of a refined, racially ambiguous, “House Negro” look, and can be seen as an attempt by the movement to “reconnect” with ordinary Black folks who have been lured away by the more emotionally compelling narrative concocted by #BLM.
Brooks was generally regarded as a failure, but the fault may simply have been in the NAACP’s understandable loss of relevance in a society where Blacks—or “Coloreds,” if you prefer—have literally stopped advancing due not to a lack of civil rights, freedoms, and welfare, but an excess of the same things. History shows that the greatest Black social progress occurred during the period when Blacks were partially segregated from Whites, lived in their own communities with their own elites, and had to get by through hard work rather than through handouts and guilting Whitey.
The present predicament of the NAACP was underlined at the Baltimore conference, where, along with Johnson’s appointment, a nationwide “listening tour” was also announced. This will see NAACP leaders touring the country, looking for clues on how to make the organization “relevant” again.
Watch out #BLM they might be about to steal some of your ideas in order to steal some of your donors.
