The Naacp Today

August 06, 1995

An old Chinese saying suggests that we should be careful of what we ask for, because we may get it. The NAACP wanted legal racial segregation outlawed, believing that it prevented blacks from attaining political and economic equality. Now that segregation is against the law, many blacks remain at the bottom of the economic ladder.

In the past, the NAACP was on the right side of the conflict between good and evil.

Let's consider today's issues: black-on-black crime, illiteracy and unwanted pregnancies? Shouldn't the NAACP use it's resources to encourage blacks to stay in school and return to church? Why isn't the NAACP dealing with the problems of today?
