But I also want to stress that organizations are set up to be advocates for a certain block of people, not just liberal. This is not unreasonable. Just like we also have the Georgia Farm Bureau (the discrimination was against a Georgia farmer, right) who's states the following as their purpose:
Georgia Farm Bureau - About Us Yeah, farmers organizations are there for farmers."The purpose of the Georgia Farm Bureau Federation, as the largest farm organization in Georgia, is to provide leadership and assistance to the agricultural sector, to promote farm products.."
NAACP is the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People. Thus, black americans, who have been the subject of horrendous discrimination practices (slavery has to top the list) in the US, are allowed to have an organization to change and protect this groups rights. If you a farmer in Georgia, you go to the GFBF for support. This is within the individual purposes of these groups.
I guess what I'm getting to is that if an organization is honest about what they representing (and its not against the law) and they're upfront about it, there is nothing wrong with this. Now Fox News??? I think their slogan is "Fair and Balanced." Uh, huh.
EDIT PS-You're not a Tea Partier, are you? Could you explain why the Iowa Tea Party people used Lenin in their ad? Usually its always Stalin.

What she clearly said is, that race does play a part in how she did her job, but other factors were also considered. Race should have played NO part in the decisions she made, but it did, and does."It's not so much about white... it is about white and black but it's not... you know..."
What part of that do you not understand?

And every lib that believes that the Tea Party is chock full of racism should do the same....
To portray Tea Party members as rabid red-necked racists, Think Progress has been caught red-handed doctoring videos in an effort to make Tea Party patriots look like racists.
Oh yes, there are racists in the videos, but they are not patriots. They are infiltrators from the left’s failed “Crash the Tea Party” drive that were called out, videotaped and exposed by patriots during previous Tea Party gatherings.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
