    Not everyone gets the NAACP daily talking points or their weekly newsletter.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    People who pay no attention to what the NAACP does probably shouldn't make major declarations about what the NAACP does.

    Throwing out the first pitch for the season for the Washington baseball team, the All Star game, or World Series
    Execute agreements in regards to foreign relations
    The POTUS is always recognized as the leaders of his particular party.
    Pardoning the turkey every Thanksgiving

    In understand some of those are nowhere near the level of representing a whole race of people, however, they do show things that the POTUS is responsible for that are not in his offical duties. Is throwing out the first pitch or pardoning the turkey that big of a deal? No, however, a big deal would be made if the POTUS broke those traditions. The same can be said for the NAACP. If they stopped representing the interests of black people they would essentially turn into the ACLU. We do have a need for an organization like the ACLU but that's not what the NAACP is about. They would also be subject to much criticism for failing to do their unoffical duty.
    The NAACP has gone against the "views of the black community" on many occasions in its history. The NAACP's tradition is to side with those who face unjust discrimination.

    That wasn't even the reason I said that anyway. I said it in response to your statment "The NAACP's tradition is to side with those who face unjust discrimination." As long as they are black, right? As in, they represent the black community.

    I would have to see your statistics. I know they don't support same sex marriage, but I'm not sure where they stand on homosexuality.

    The have come out in support of women's rights, immigrant's rights, and LGBT rights.

    I posted them earlier in the thread. I want to say on the first page. Some polls show 70% of blacks disapprove of homosexuality.

    You have any links to that? Not doubting you. I'd actually like to see it.

    It's not a contradiction for the NAACP to support same-sex marriage. They seek to do what they feel is right for the black community. This doesn't make them beholden to any particular moral belief that happens to be shared by the majority of black people.

    You mean other than supporting same-sex marriage?

    I don't know about them, but I wouldn't want an organization that is supposed to be acting in my best interest deciding what they feel is right for me. That's just me though. I'm not black so I can't relate to the relationship between the NAACP and the black community.
