    Alabama NAACP criticizes use of Trail Maids in Inaugural Parade

    The head of the Alabama NAACP, however, wants Mobile's Azalea Trail Maids to stay home on Inauguration Day, claiming the group reminds him of slavery.

    "These are not just regular costumes. These are the costumes that remind someone of the plantation in Gone with the Wind," Edward Vaughn said in a phone interview.

    Vaughn went on to say the group would be the laughing stock of the Inauguration. County leaders say nothing could be further from the truth.

    "We want everyone to know that these young ladies do not need to be identified with slavery," said Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine.

    "I don't see what the dresses have to do with racism. I don't see it. It's just a regular dress to me. Just a dress they wore back in the day," said Carolyn Tius of Montgomery.

    Organizers stand behind the tradition, but opponents say tradition is the problem.

    "We needed something that could show Alabama's great progress rather than something that shows a shameful past," Vaughn said.

    Perhaps they should have "ghetto Girls" for the next one? What a putz this guy is.

    What an idiot. I had no idea what a Trail Maid was and by this guys outrage I expected some sort of slavery attired or themed costumes and this is what I found




    How these dresses remind anyone of slavery is beyond me. I just think of like a Southern Belle from long ago. Just because the South did have slaves back in the day does not mean everything (especially dresses) in southern culture = slavery.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I think groups like the NAACP have outlived their usefulness. They are dinosaurs who do not realize that they are extinct. They are so desperate to remain useful that they are looking for racism where there is none.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Obama is going to swear in on the exact same bible Lincoln did. The NAACP should rise up in yet another of their just causes and stop this blastphomy at once. Burn all books using the word "Negro" and burn Huckleberry Finn for using the "N' word . Burn all FACTS referring to our history, NOW!!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    step 1. Demand equality
    step 2. Demand more
    step 3. Separate yourself from the rest of the country
    step 3. Call everything racist in order to reinforce your separation and force people to give in to your demands.
    step 4.
    step 5. Profit

    That's racist! You should've worded that "African American" people can't be racist.

    You know what's hilarious though? Watching a black american call an African immigrant racist.... Seen it and laughed my ass off.
