Hallmark caves to NAACP

I heard this on talk radio today and thought it was just another right wing wacko story. Turns out to be true. Unbelievable.

Will it ever end? I think as a society, we are weakened by special interest groups like the NAACP. I read some of the comments that followed the article, hip hop and rap music use that reference so often it is comical. I guess it is O.K. in that context though. Isn't yoyo black?

The stupid "black holes" thing again? Sometimes I just think these specific-race-only-organizations are being racist on purpose.

Al Jolsen and Warner Oland would disagree. Not enough to qualify.

Such racial intolerance should not be tolerated.

For doing such a heinous thing, I think Hallmark should be blacklisted.

Any black members here? I'd like to hear your take on this. I'm honestly stunned at the NAACP's position on this.

When an advocacy organization achieves all of its initial goals, it has a choice:

1) Disband

OR

2) Become more an more extreme so as to find something to "fight".

Sadly, most such organizations go for option #2. The people who run them don't want to find real jobs, or let all of their political contacts go to waste.

The American Lung Association is another example. Once upon a time, the organization's main push was lung cancer research. I don't know that they even do that anymore. Instead, they have been the driving force behind various state-wide smoking bans. And do you know what they've done since that campaign was largely successful? They have gone after leaf-burning, campfires, and car emmissions.

Most "civil rights" organizations are largely the same. They have accomplished everything they were established to accomplish, so they invent new reasons to exist.

Look at the ACLU. It has established the first amendment as sacred and beyond reproach. To survive, it has become a wing of the DNC.

"It sounds like a group of children laughing and joking about blackness, again," said another NAACP member.

If they weren't before, they are now.

Blacks, as a group, need to quit thinking of themselves as "victims" and trying to find a slight or slur against them in everything they see and hear.

Liberals have sold them on the victim mentality and as long a the leadership of minority or easily manipulated groups follows the playbook, liberals (progressives) win elections.
Your problem is _________(fill in the blank) and the _________(fill in the blank) did it to you.
Unions leaders use management
Black leaders use whites
Obama (socialist leader ) uses the rich
Hispanic (leaders) use thinking people
and so on and so on..................
