…the NAACP is havin’ their convention in Houston. Not in Sheila Jackson Lee’s limo; in a hall somewheres.
One imagines that the local convention & visitors’ bureau is kinda happy about havin’ all the folks in town – the tourism biz bein’ down the tubes like it is. So you’d figure that they had a flat-out stroke-out when they heard this rant about the conventioneers…
The thing is, as brutal as that deal was he’s more or less right about what he’s sayin’ here. The NAACP stinks on ice. And he’s right that the NAACP does nothin’ but bitch about racism that might or might not exist.
Want an example? OK, here’s one – the NAACP is in Pennsylvania suing because Pennsylvania wants folks to show an ID when they vote. They’re also doing the same thing in Texas. Where are they this week? Texas.
Guess what you gotta show if you wanna get into the hall at the NAACP convention this week…
All media must present government-issued photo I.D. (such as a driver’s license) as well as valid media credentials. Members of the media must RSVP to receive press credentials at http://action.naacp.org/page/s/registration. For security purposes, media check-in and equipment set up must be completed by 7:45 a.m. CDT for an 8:00 a.m. CDT security sweep. Once the security sweep is completed, additional media equipment will NOT be permitted to enter and swept equipment will NOT be permitted to exit.
So there’s that.
Which is not to say Michael Berry isn’t a chump. He comes off as a chump when it comes to the whole gay/not gay thing, fa sho.
But when he beats up on the NAACP, he ain’t wrong. And while they’re sure to call him racist – is he, really?
UPDATE: After all, when your convention collectively plays the race card to give a Lewinsky to Eric Holder – why shouldn’t you get drilled as useless clowns?
Gotta love that flourish with the organ. That’s a nice touch, ain’t it?
