The response from one NAACP leader after Mitt Romneys speech before the organization on Wednesday? He favors white people.
I believe his vested interests are in white Americans, Charlette Stoker Manning, the chairwoman of Women in NAACP, told the website BuzzFeed following the Republican candidates Wednesday speech in Houston.
You cannot possibly talk about jobs for black people at the level hes coming from. Hes talking about entrepreneurship, savings accounts black people can barely find a way to get back and forth from work, Manning said.
Romney was booed at several points throughout his speech the loudest being when Romney spoke of his desire to see Obamacare repealed. The Republican also received applause at times throughout the speech, notably for saying hed protect traditional marriage.
In his speech, he argued that a Romney administration would better serve African-American voters.
If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him, Romney said.
In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, the NAACP thanked Romney for addressing the convention but stressed they disagree with his policies.
While we are glad that Governor Romney recognized the power of the black electorate, he laid out an agenda that was antithetical to many of our interests, said NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous.
Newt said something very similar. They called him a slave owner for wanting to get black youths employed.
Deport all AA felons back to the continent they claim to love. They sure aren't happy here, why should we force them to stay?
What’s Glove doing at a Rat organization anyway!?
They don’t like Romney speaking to them as equals about reality, but they are cool with Hillary condescending to them with her negro imitation. NAACP hate mongers are as big of frauds as their master Obama.
You know, when I hear gentlemen such as Walter Williams speak, what I hear is completely different than what I heard from the black people I lived around in New Orleans.
The difference between the two area universe apart. It does make me believe that there is perhaps some dynamic operating here.
It's funny you should mention Booker Taliaferro Washington. During that same conversation, the young man admitted that he hadn't read "Up From Slavery." I can't fathom how anyone could read Mr. Washington's inspiring story and not grasp the conservative message. I wonder what percentage of blacks in America have actually read Mr. Washington's autobiography, or for that matter, Frederick Douglas' "Narrative." Those two gentlemen would have nothing but contempt for the current crop of grievance-mongers.
Not even getting into his journey to receive an education, by my reckoning (I did the math, but others here may correct me), BTW started the Tuskegee Institute with virtually nothing (even less, when you consider the debt), and in a span of 20 years, had built a renowned center of learning worth $1 Billion in today's dollars. Not bad for a guy who started out lacking even a last name.
That's the kind of drive and sense of self-determination that's sadly lacking the black community, IMUO (in my unauthorized opinion). Of course, by DuBois' earlier standards (he somewhat relented, later on) and those of most of today's black "leadership," Booker was a sell-out to Whitey.
Dat's cause them Asians come here with Secret Chinese Money!!!!

What an ignorant, IGNORANT breed
Re: her contention about having a hard time getting to and from work... This is the same lame argument the race pimps are making about voter ID requirements. What they`re saying is the people the represent can`t pull together the energy to roll off the couch, take a shower, eat whatever they consume in the morning.....
It`s that getting-up-in-the-morning issue that has them spun up. Because when they`re accustomed to sleeping in while waiting for the reload of the EBT and that government check.. well, day-um.. expecting these people to actually show up at a JOB every day is unfair.. and racist!
The Klan with a Tan has spoken.
“How can their children learn proper English and excel in school?”
They don`t. The expectation nowadays is the education standard must descend to their level, not the other way around. Many school districts don`t even have valedictorian honors at commencement ceremonies in order to spare the tender feelings and egos of the non-achievers.
The black sub-culture of quashing anyone`s efforts in school lest they “sound white” is a powerful factor in self-limitation as well. But then... what`s it all worth anyway, when the government provides food, housing, medical care and a comfortable lifestyle?
I insured many an immigrant in Atlanta. And by that, I mean commercially. I had quite a book of business not because I spoke spanish (I didn’t), but because I taught them how to work their books to not get hit with heavy audits and most agents didn’t have the patience for that. Basically most started out as laborers on construction crews until one (the one who learned english the fastest and had the most business sense) would eventually break out to start their own crew and bidding on jobs. Then they needed insurance for liability and workers comp. That’s when I dealt with the wife of the owner and that’s who I usually taught how to maintain the books and how to put the percentage of the job into a savings account for the audit of premium. Most had been here four or five years maybe and I became friends with quite a few. I envied most of their houses! Tell me people ‘can’t’ start a business! They came here sleeping on someone’s sofa until they earned enough for a place, then learned enough to do it on their own. I have no sympathy.
To be fair, not all got that. Most did not even.
The sheer, utter, blatant hypocrisy. These people should be laughed at not respected.
The NAACP is the most racist organization out there. They despise the sight of white people. So what is that idiot saying, that black people cant find ways to and from work? I love it how that moron makes such a blanket statement like that. So Im assuming by her logic all blacks sit at home doing what, playing XBOX? If a white person had just said the idiocy that this woman just said they would be accused of being the racists. The NAACP only supports Obama because they are hoping they will get reparations from him if they do
Of course, the NAACP was founded by WEB DuBois, a total Communist. He was so Communist that he was making trips to the USSR before the US recognized them (which made DuBois trips illegal). That shouls tell all the real legacy of the NAACP
Black leaders for years have taught blacks the “poor me” sydrome. Fortunately there are many Blacks who have done quite well by not listening. For Manning to insinuate black people aren’t capable of entrepreneurship and savings accounts is a huge insult to his race. What an idiot.
answer: I'd bet none.
conclusion: NAACP is a racist organozation that excludes whites.
Republicans continue to address the NAACP when they know they will be scorned.
Why do they even bother?
Romney did very well at the NAACP yesterday. He is realistic in believe he will lose the majority of the Black vote. However, he exposed the unreasonable leadership of NAACP for the entire country to view. In addition he doesn’t need the majority of the Black vote, he just needs a larger percentage than McCain got(4%). At the same time it is likely there will be a lower turnout from this “voting block”.
