    You're tiring alright.

    Meh .....You know how it is TB when Black Conservatives make something of themselves. Or even other minorities.



    NAACP Releases Statement On 2014 Elections, But No Mention Of Mia Love Or Tim Scott's Historic Wins.....

    The NAACP has given Townhall a statement on the 2014 Midterm Elections: The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is committed to leading the effort alongside other civil and human rights organizations and our newly elected Congress to pass a robust Voting Rights Act Amendment.

    Equal access to voting remains paramount as numerous reports of voting irregularities emerged during the midterm elections yesterday. Malfunctioning voting machines, voters turned away because of erroneous voter ID laws, missing names of registered voters and long lines were among the major challenges that the NAACP fielded along with our Election Protection partners via the 1-866-Our-Vote hotline. We assert that passage of a robust Voting Rights Act Amendment is essential for the states previously protected under section 5 as well as for all Americans for the sanctity of our republic. We urge the newly elected Congress to join us in ensuring that all registered voters in our great country have unfettered access to the ballot box.

    Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP: “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.”.....snip~

    Naturally the NAAACP was asked that with Love and Scotts Historic wins.....does this mark progress. Looks like they will be waiting on that answer for sometime.

    Oh, that's the NON Partisan NAACP.

    Why does skin color matter anyway? She got elected for her views and leadership experience. She was judged on the content of her character and not by the color of her skin, and her accomplishment of becoming a Congresswoman should be celebrated, not put down.

    She doesn't have a hang-up about race, too bad there are so many people that do.

    Actually my post to this thread pointed out how she's the only Republican House member that's black. Then I got two responses that were pretty much "dem liberuls always bringing in race" blah blah blah...hiccup blah blah blah.

    What you're quoting is my response to them...that this thread is pretty much entirely about her race. Seems like you should be talking to Grant maybe?

    You need to recheck the definition of racist.

    Of course this thread is about her race. Did you read the title of the Yahoo article I used in the subject line, and read their article itself?
