AFRIMERICAN

With respect to all those who support and believe in the NAACP, more power to you, and I mean that in a wholistic positive way, because one cannot see until they can see.

When one looks at any organization, most survive and thrive because their membership increases. For 20 years, the NAACP claimed a membership of 500,000, now it claims a membership of 300,00, and the actual figures are closer to half that.

The NAACP had a major downfall when members began asking in the early 90's where was all the money going. I personally sat in while private, member, and corporate donations were tallied, and the sub-total was close to 60 million dollars. Doing comparative projections, one could estimate the organization had averaged between 25 to 40 million dollars a year and the activities they fund in the communities nationwide were, and still are zero.

Conclusively , and very, very obviously, the NAACP does not serve for the advancement of the people as they claim, and once may have. That activity has long been set aside, and the hundreds of studies done the past ten years per the decline of the Afrimerican race as a whole give very definite proof of said claim.

I challenge any reader here that has a major social, academic, or legal issue to go to the NAACP for help, I bet you they are not coming unless they can pimp it, and you to fill their pockets, and if they can, and do, they'll make a compromise deal for you to keep them in favor with whoever is wronging you, and they will create an association with those that have wronged you irrespective of the harm thats been done to you or other Afrimericans.

Wake up. Vote for yourself, and take the NAACP off the pedestal of reverence of it beng something, and for you, that it's not.

Kudos to Bruce Gordon for leaving the NAACP- THe folks that run the NAACP are outdated and out of touch- someone said they rely on Volunteers why? Can't they manage a real business like other mainstream non profits. I wonder if we looked at the travel and personal income statement of the Board it would be outrageous- they are just flatly pimping up.

Bruce Gordon had the integrity that every one of us should have to say no if I'm going to be involved I'm going to make it useful, relevant, and all around a better organization!

What about the possibility of pulling out of Iraq, letting Iran invade and lose resources fighting their own kind,
and then come in and mop up the dregs?

Frank F

He met with the President of the US alone. Why? Did he pimp the NAACP to gain access to the President to cut a deal for Verizon? Maybe a no bid contract for the company? New markets? This is the problem when you meet with these top officials alone. You have no witnesses, no other participants, no one else from the organization knows what transpired. So its left to our imaginations.

AFRIMERICAN

The original spirit and motivation at work when the NAACP was founded has had it's ups and downs. But When one looks at W.E.B Dubois resigning and denouncing certain elements of an organation he help find, and establish, one , someone with sense to think beyond the celebriyisms, normally, would wonder why. The so-called modern N-word have gotten dumd, and follow the trend of lies that has Afrimericans in the same and near samr ecomonic and other social positions post 1950.

Yes, the NAACP depends on volunteers, mostly young Afrimericans who think they are part of somethimng that is long dead.

The NAACP lost it's credibility with this writer and others, (Myrlee Evers...) When year after year the NAACP was bringing in 50 to 70 million dollars a year in, but no one could explain where the money was going, and it sure wasn't going back into the Afrimerican community. That was over ten years ago, now it's double that and the money doesn;t pay for any Afrimerican community service. NOT ONE.

They pull a Jesse Jackson, which is to show up, seemingly, at the nick of time, make some noise as if to be concerned. Collect a bunch of donations, then leave town.

Wake Up

AFRIMERICAN

An AFRIMERICAN CONGRAGULATION TO MR.BRUCE GORDON:

While the public perceptions and the various voices of what, why, who, per Mr. Gordons resignation will definitely be gossip topic for those who feed off such to feel important, the fact that Mr. Gordon resigned fron an organization that only pays lip service to it's commitment to Afrimerican progress in all strata of American life shows This writer Mr. Gordon is not the houseN-word I took him for when I first heard of his being given the position.

I am sure there are those within the NAACP who are just as surprised. The Non-Afrimericans behind the scenes keeping the rest of the N-words in check Mr. Gordon left behind. I admit I was in error in judgement of this mans character and do apologize.

Those in the NAACP, and other Corporate, and Government circles that are familiar with "AFRIMERICAN"lost the pawn you were attempting to use.

R. Harvey

This is an interesting discussion. What I have observed over time, is that NAACP people are fairly strong personalities. Generally, they are not weak "shrinking violet" type people, they are everyday people who are fighters. They have to be as they are the people who have helped us get where we are today. Just go to google on any day of the week, and you will see them kicking butt all over the US. You have to be really strong to lead these kind of people. No one is going to walk in the door and tell them to change their mission.

One other thing, 99% of the work is from volunteers, people who give their own time and money to help the cause. People do what they want to do with their own time and money.

Denise U

You know our country has had many trials and tribulations. Some unworthy Presidents and Officials. Love ones in your own personal family, has not always represented your standards the way they should. Please, just because the NAACP is going through some trials and tribulations, do not distroy Its past and Future with unkind words. There are too many who are still working hard for NO PAY for your rights. Don't forget the Branch's of the NAACP. We are still holding on no matter what. Not just for us but for You and the Youth who are a viable part of this great organization. Just like you would not distroy your Country, City,Family,or even your Church that has issues, do not distroy an orginzation that still is holding own. Prayer is and always will be the answer for all. Yes, we do need to change some things and maybe this can be the starting point. Even so YOU are the ones who make the difference. Not by unkind words but by great ideas. JOIN and make that change.

H. Mata

It is clear many people don't understand the structure of the NAACP. The NAACP is an organization of volunteers structured in a representative democracy based on a constitution. Members of the Board and officers are elected by the majority of the NAACP voters from around the United States in a secret ballot process usually at conventions.

Once elected, they represent the full weight and authority of the NAACP. These are the "cronies" you refer to.

The executive director and all staff positions, are appointed positions. They are appointed by delegated elected officials. Their powers are limited and subject to those of the elected body.

Power people understand this arrangement. That is why everyone listens when the Chairman of the Board speaks.

Brian C. Dunlop

I read the words but what I found of more interest were some of the responses to it. So here is my take on both his memo and our responses. I do not believe many sucessful non-profits operate efficiently under the management of a board that proposes and an E.D. that disposes; nor could I imagine a more ineffective manner of management. Leadership requires initiative and decisiveness. While meeting on behalf of the organization alone does present a few pitfalls, I doubt he ever intended to meet with anyone without someone. The problem resided in his failure to bring along the usual suspects/cronies so they could get their moment to shine at the table with the man.I imagine his naivete rested in his assumption that his professional experience prepared him for the level of pettiness and recalcitrance/ignorance that he encountered. The most difficult obstacle any organization can face is necessary change and the fear this engenders in its aging leadership.

Terry Howcott

The reason many Black people do not care to have a membership with the NAACP has all to do with the failure of that organization to appeal to the majority - the masses - in this community. That majority is not a likely candidate to frequent our little websites or blogs, and in fact more often than not they're accessing online from a public library or a neighbor's house.

We like to pontificate about Black folk being together, but what we really mean is being together from a rather Euro perspective that turns a blind eye to who the people really are.

"Stewards" who can talk with Viacom, but can't connect with the folk in the street - that includes Bruce Gordon, Julian Bond and all the rest - are essentially twirling in circles and missing out on the fruit - and the fruit juice.

One would think a Juilian Bond would get that innately given his rich activist history, and is ability to weigh in effectively in some areas - but of course we all know membership in the U.S. Congress has made many a people inconsistent.

In the meantime, Bruce Gordon discussed the state of Black American recently on a Tavis show with a little crappy story about his privileged son as a backdrop. It was short in depth and imagination, and it wrapped Black community concerns in a small box with a little red ribbon and bow - perfect for rousing applause.

Now he gets to see how it is true that PARTICULARS, specifics and dynamics - framing and contextualities are critical to proper analysis of the condition of the race be it from a macro perspective or in this micro circumstance.

So Bruce Gordon is right. There is something to be learned here - and let that learning begin with him.

Its very disappointing To see the type of things going on at NAACP.I read that the NAACP has only 500.000 members the same number it had back in the 30`s. The organization is indicative of we blacks as a whole. We are not a unified people.These types of things going on in the NAACP,Makes me want to cancel my membership.To many chiefs and no Indians.I don`t know if Mr Gordon was right or wrong, but I do know we need to be more unified.And if there are some right wingers on the board they need to go also.All they are doing is bidding the massa doings keeping us divided

E. Michelle

W.E.B. made his contribution and has moved on to glory. The NAACP is still here. It is still here because it has "worker bees" who keep it going. Criticizing the NAACP serves no useful purpose. For those of you who have negative feelings about it, pretend it doesn't exist.

Now, what are you going to do about all these social services that are needed in the Black community? To get your own social services organization together, get like minded friends and associates together. Decide what your mission will be and get their volunteer commitment. You can go on-line to your Secretary of State's website and create your own Not-for-profit corporation using your credit card. You can get the application for Tax Exemption from the IRS website. Contact the IRS to to get an Employer ID number, check their website. With this number, you can then open a checking account. Once you get the tax exempt number, go to work raising money and solving problems!

Dr. Ely Dorsey, your comments are on point. Dr. Dubois resigned from the NAACP for similar reasons.

It's interesting that Julian Bond was a young turk 30 years ago fighting against NAACP board policies that he now supports. What a opportunists. That's why he lost the congressional election against John Lewis many years ago in Atlanta. Because voters knew he was an opportunists. Julian Bond is the one that should have resigned.

Dr. Ely Dorsey, your right, The NAACP is a sad organization. It is going no where and will continue to eat its own tail.

The NAACP is like the old F.W. Woolworths. At some point in the near future it will be gone, because it never learned how to change with the times.

H. Foster

Looking over the memo, it is clear that there are several real no-nos here. His level of naivete' on these issues is such that it is clear he did not have the level of operational sophistication needed to deal either within the organization or represent it in the outside world. Lesson 1 - Never meet with people in power alone. This protects you as well as the organization.

Dr. Emorie

Why didn't Gordon do his due diligence on the NAACP prior to considering the job? There is an enormous body of knowledge on the field of civil rights and the NAACP's role in the field. Beyond the field itself, there is a massive amount of literature on the NAACP and seminal works and books on its history and how it operates. Once he had a framework for the organization, he should of had questions for former Executive Directors, and the Board itself. This is what happens when professionals don't do their homework.

Danny

This situation has brought to the forefront the absence of a host of people who are not helping anyone in Black communities. The NAACP does civil rights well. It does not need to be transformed or remade over. What is missing is social service organizations to handle the other dimensions of the work needed in Black communities. Bruce and others on this board need to form these social services organizations. But that takes real work. Something lots of Blacks will not do for the cause. It is much easier to throw rocks at those who are working, change their mission and give them even more work, and anything else rather than rolling up your sleeves and putting your shoulders to the wheel.

The NAACP was formed almost 100 years ago. What is wrong with all these capitalists, intellectuals, and others? It does not take that much to form new organizations. No one is holding you back. Get to it!
