Default NAACP Mix-Up?

Dymally was quoted in the San Jose Mercury News Thursday saying the child was "a little African-American girl. Would he (Riordan) have done that to a white girl?"

http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/....ap/index.html


Basically a white man made a comment to a white girl and the NAACP jumps in to save the day THINKING that the girl was black.... what a mix-up huh? They didn't offer any help for the girl once they found out she was white....not that any help was needed, but they considered the issue over with. They only spend time and energy on their OWN people.... is that racist?

I was gonna make a post about this a half hour ago. I didn't like the fact that he jumped up thinking the girl was black and then blew it off once he found out she was white. Does that mean our elected officials are only responsible for defending constituents of the same race? He should have stood by no matter what color.

By the way, the NAACP didn't screw up the info, it was Assemblyman Dymally.

I'm aware of that, but the guy is part of the group.... and I'm sure if any of them made this type of mistake they would blow if off too.... " She's white, let's move on to something that will help our people..." kind of thing...

The NAACP, along with the ACLU are two of the vilest organizations in America. They are beyond corrupt, they are powerhungry, lustful and serve no useful purpose here. One of these day Americans will look at each other was "Americans", and not those of another country/race.... hopefully.... Of course this means all immigrants who move here must respect our flag, respect our language and pay homage to our country - i.e. only wave the american flag, not the flag of where they came from.

What the hell? Is this the "angry white man" thread now?

I'd rather have the ACLU backing me up than a bunch of conservative bible thumpers, but that's another thread.

I have no problems with the NAACP, I have problems with the mentality of only taking care of your own. This works both ways, black, white, christian, jewish, whatever. I think his backpedalling only hurts other black politicians because now short sighted people will think "why should I vote for a black man, he only cares about other black people?"

Holy hypocrisy! You can't have pride in your background? I guess we should cancel the St. Patrick's day parade as well. I guess you're another "love it or leave it" pseudo patriot.

Sure you can have pride in your background. What pisses me off is people driving around waving their non-american flags and speaking in a foreign language never taking the time to 1. learn about america, 2. never bothering to learn our language and 3. sending the money they make off to a foreign country. Call me what you may, but I'm just a patriot that respects the men and women that have died for our country.

As soon as you show me the correlation between speaking a foreign language and disrespecting our fallen soldiers, I'll respond to your xenophobia with more than thinly veiled contempt.

It is not the fact they are speaking a foreign language - it is the fact they are not even ATTEMPTING to learn our language. That is the problem. You live here, you learn our customs/culture/language.

I'm agreeing wiht what you're saying, except for this point here. The NAACP didn't form in order to celebrate their background, they formed in 1909 in order to begin a civil rights battle that took them until 1964 to win.


PS: There are also white ppl in the NAACP.

Oh, I'm aware of the origins and role of the NAACP, and I have no problem with them at all. My hypocrisy comment was based on this line...

"One of these day Americans will look at each other was "Americans", and not those of another country/race.... hopefully.... Of course this means all immigrants who move here must respect our flag, respect our language and pay homage to our country - i.e. only wave the american flag, not the flag of where they came from. "

Ok...Riordan screwed up, but he states that he was just teasing with the girl and he apologized. Twice running. Even the mother of the child is stating that it's over and done with. No harm, no foul.
Ahnold is smart, he is not going to fire the guy, his office lets it drop.
The NAACP and the media, well, that's a different story.

The ACLU was ready to Jihad and protest and so on, then CANCELED THE RALLY once he finds out the girl is white...now the Cali NAACP leader won't talk to reporters, and issued a statement saying that it's time to move on, and that "Race is not a factor in this issue,"

WHAT! If she was black, then Riordan is a KKK member-toting bigot, and it's time to rally around the black cause and get this incompetent white leader out of power, but if she's white, then it's an honest mistake?

The NAACP causes more problems than they solve. Someone prove to me otherwise, because this 'incident' just proves to me even more that the NAACP is not trying to Advance Colored People, but Retard White People.

Oh, and the Muhammad Ali/ Nation of Islam comment is beautiful.

Dymally screwed up but the NAACP jumped on the wrong cart. Don't tell me anyone here thinks they would intercede on behalf of a white person...have they ever before? Of course they didn't back down because then it would look bad.

You < 4th grader's reading comprehension. Go back, reread, come back later.

mms, I don't think that the NAACP will ever back a white issue/person. That's not their job. But, I do think they stray (ran from at full speed) from their primary purpose, which is to help black people fight racism and discrimination.

It would help them mightily if they did fact check once in a while, though. Maybe look at a picture of the girl.

BUT, if you asked me to guess a girl's race based on her name alone, and her name was Isis, I would not choose white, I would choose muslim, then black. Then again, I don't start rallys nor do I have Reuters and AP on speed dial, so I can afford to be slightly inappropriate in my thoughts and actions.

Spare me. The problem with reading comprehension lies in the people who immediately jumped on the NAACP's back when it was the ASSEMBLYMAN who tried to rally them before he know she was white. The issue lies with the elected official, not the NAACP.

Touche...I just reread the story, and you are correct.

I am hereby eating my words because I can't read with a 4th grader's comprehension level.

I suck at teh race arguments.
