The wife and I happened to catch the Colbert Report on Comedy Central the other night to find a little piece that featured the president and CEO of the NAACP or National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. I was rather shocked to see that after a day at the beach I would be darker than this guy. Watch the segment here:
Take the chip off your shoulder already will you? However, I started to wonder after watching this piece, with an African American, black, or or colored president (choose your own label) is there now a need for such organizations as the NAACP? Colored people are as "advanced" as they can be in this country right? Leader of the greatest country in the world, President Barack Obama, has shown that there is no ceiling to the aspirations of any race in this country right?
Now what NAACP? What is left for "your cause?" Are we able to conclude that the mission of your cause has been completed? Oh, and I still don't understand how you can end racism and still call yourselves colored people? If race is to not have any effect, you need to stop seeing people as a different race. Wouldn't the National Association for Racial Equality be more fitting?
