    I hate you.
    If you were a black person who felt this way, I imagine the NAACP might respond with "This isn't about you. We're not deciding anything for you."

    Because, shocker, sometimes the NAACP has opinions about things other than black people and their well-being.

    I would say, "Fine with me, you are not the preeminent organization in regards to the black community anymore. Have a nice day."

    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 still say that doesn't matter. Taking the rigth stand is leading.

    Right according to who? The NAACP? When the people they represent disagree? Right is relative in this country many times. Especially when speaking of something such as SSM.

    Some probably will say that, but I suspect not many. An organization like the NAACP doesn't get dumped just because it does one thing that people disagree with. Most people aren't "single-issue voters" like that. Hardly anyone actually thinks same-sex marriage is the biggest issue of the day.

    No. I think it is one of those things that is clear once you remove bigotry. As I have said, fair is fair. The NAACP is not leading to taking away anything, but leading to grant equal rights to a discrimnated minority. I see no way not to call that right.

    I can agree with that. I think what it does do is make blacks lose interest/faith in them. But I don't think a mass exodus of supporters is going to occur.

    According to Christians, it is wrong. Which, just so happens, are what most blacks are. That is where the disapproval of homosexuality comes from, as I'm sure you know. Like I said, right is relative in many things. This is one of them.

    I agree, having been raised with a black (step) dad and growing up in a black community, I know African Americans relied heavy on God to get them through slavery, this faith was passed from generation to generation...this is very much a Christian issue with many Black Americans who oppose marriage equality. That said, it still doesn't make it right.

    My point is that you don't hear about them discussing these issues or marching on them, all you hear about are the left-wing issues or the race-baiting propaganda. If they do discuss these issues buried in one of their newsletters obviously that's not enough, right?
