    Are you suggesting that the Republicans didn't capture the White vote and win because of that?

    It's about the NAACP, which is about race, ignoring Scott and Love.

    I have no idea, frankly.

    But calling something "the White vote" sounds like some serious generalization to me.

    It's not a narrative, it's facts. Obama's liberal policies have been overwhelmingly rejected, which you are in denial of.

    You don't have it straight. Does what Mia Love did or said hurt or help the NAACP's stated mission of removing racial barriers?

    If help comes from gov't handous then the NAACP is all supportive but if that help comes from personal effort and taking advvantage of existing opportunities then not a peep.

    But I thought we didn't want it to be about race. Or is bringing up their race only OK when it fits the RW narrative?

    She said it wasn't about her race. If it's not about her race, then why should we be upset when someone doesn't make a big deal about it?

    What was the message of MLK Jr. in his "I have a dream" speech? Was it not the same as Mia Love's? Ending racial discrimination, the NAACP's stated mission, includes (if not outright depends on) having as many Mia Loves and Tim Scotts as possible.

    What the NAACP must never do, to assure that it survives in its current form, is to admit (much less advertise) that Mia Love's and Tim Scott's success was in no way dependent upon any gov't "help" program but resulted from a (naturally occuring?) lack of racial/gender discrimination standing in the way of their elections in red states.

    The biggest fear of the NAACP is that the demorats will lose the ability to smear the republicants as being the party of rich, white folks that are engaged in a war on (or repression of?) minorities and women. Ending identity politics and the associated special gov't programs would render the NAACP obsolete.

    Of course it's the same, and I'm not out to defend the NAACP from charges of being overly partisan.

    But if her race is immaterial, why is it "bad NAACP" for not making it a big deal? She's not the first black member of Congress. Scott is not the first black Senator. First from their party in a long time, perhaps, but why has it taken so long for black Republicans to get elected, and how is that Democrats' fault?

    Out of the the title, NAACP you nit picked the word "colored" to base your entire premise on. So I think I'll nit pick the word "people" and suggest that one or two blacks does not an entire demographic make.




    So then you agree, the NAACP is pretty much a partisan entity. While a majority of blacks are Democrats, not all are so perhaps they should amend their mission statement to state they only support the advancement of black Democrats, black liberals or black progressives. Clearly they don't live by their current mission statement otherwise they'd celebrate Tim Scott's victory as this is pretty significant advancement for a black American.
    I think I stated quite clearly that the NAACP is a black organization funded by blacks for black causes. I don't know about Tim Scott, but Mia Love was not elected by blacks and she doesn't represent blacks in congress and I doubt that she has donated even one thin dime to the NAACP.

    In her CNN interview, Love said her election wasn't about race....but as you can see from the OP and rightwing blogs, conservatives only care about her race. Clearly conservative interest in the NAACP is disingenuous at best and racist at worst.
