Once again, it’s as if the NAACP sees itself as not having done enough to dishonor its legacy and completely ruin its reputation as a civil rights organization. In its fledgling grasps at political relevancy, the so-called civil rights organization- with the help of the ACLU- is suing the state of Arizona again in an attempt to achieve greater access to race and sex-based abortion.
Last year, the NAACP unsuccessfully sued the state of Arizona in an attempt to have the Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2011 declared unconstitutional. In their lawsuit, the NAACP and ACLU claimed that the law was “discriminatory” because it unfairly singled out black and Asian women in regards to abortion. As a result, the groups claimed that the law violated the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because it “stigmatized” black and Asian women’s “decision” to kill their babies.
U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell dismissed the lawsuit saying the plaintiffs lacked standing.
Not content with having their original lawsuit thrown out, the NAACP- again with the help of the ACLU- is now begging the San Francisco-based Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider their lawsuit. Their argument this time- according to Alexa Kolbi-Molinas of the ACLU- is that presumably, black and Asian women in Arizona “must endure the humiliation of living under a government that views them as a threat to American values simply by virtue of alleged character flaws possessed by persons of their race.”
In other words, black and Asian women shouldn’t have to be associated with the stigma of intentionally having an abortion based on race or gender because it makes them feel bad. These women should be free to kill their black, and female preborn babies free from moral condemnation.
Fools, the whole lot.
The law doesn’t single out any ethnic or racial group; the law, as written, it applies to everyone, equally. As a result, the law isn’t discriminatory because the essence of the bill is to prevent discrimination in regards to abortion based on race and gender. If anything, it discriminates against those who would seek to discriminate against race and gender through the process of abortion.
But that hasn’t stopped the Maricopa County Branch of the NAACP, led by so-called Reverend Oscar Tillman – and by extension, the national NAACP organization since they haven’t spoken out against the actions of the local branch throughout this entire shameful process.
Again, The Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act makes illegal any and all abortions that are based on the race or sex of the mother or preborn child. It also criminalizes anyone who knowingly performs an abortion that is the result of race or gender. Lastly it criminalizes anyone who engages in physical or verbal coercion that leads to a race or sex-based abortion.
But the NAACP still isn’t content with the disproportionately high numbers of abortion in the black community; it wants more of them and will sue repeatedly to make it happen. Now, if a predominately white, conservative organization endeavored to sue a state in an attempt to rescind a law that prohibits race and sex-based abortions because they sought to increase the numbers of black babies aborted, it would rightly be called racist and one knows that the NAACP would waste no time letting America know the racist intentions of this racist organization, which they would also argue is a direct reflection of a racist America as a whole.
Yet the NAACP, again, is engaged in this very same practice, which clearly indicates their hypocrisy and broken moral compass. The NAACP is actively supporting a position- through word and deed- that will in theory increase abortion in the black community. Doing so effectively undermines the association’s credibility (with many questioning if it has any left?) when it comes to being an advocate against racism. Who should take seriously any organization that protests and demonstrates against racism while at the same time advocating a form of racism itself?
Since racism as a comprehensive obstacle to black advancement has been overcome, the NAACP no longer has any moral or cultural relevancy. It should therefore drop the pretense of being a civil rights organization (because in this case, civil rights don’t extend to those in the womb) and admit what it has become -and what many Americans already know- that it’s a political advocacy group that seeks to advance progressive political causes to the highest bidder.
For example, the NAACP is at odds with many black Americans on a number of issues. Blacks overwhelmingly support school choice; the NAACP doesn’t and has sided with teacher’s unions- responsible for delivering piss-poor, substandard education to poor black children- against school choice advocates, many of them being poor black parents.
The NAACP also supports same sex marriage; many blacks oppose it. The NAACP should be creating and implementing strategic initiatives that would encourage and increase marriage rates in the black community- which would increase the numbers of children born into two-parent homes. But it would rather march with “pride,” supporting the redefinition of marriage.
The NAACP is against stop-and-frisk, proactive policing techniques; many blacks, particularly those who live in neighborhoods plagued with violent crime, support these techniques. The NAACP and other black “intelligentsia” argue against stop-and-frisk, calling the practice racist. They also actively prevent these measures from being implemented or maintained. But that only increases the numbers of poor, law-abiding blacks who become victims of violent criminals, many of them being black themselves since crime is largely an intra-racial phenomenon.
The NAACP supports increasing the minimum wage as an effective economic policy to decrease income and wealth inequality. Yet many blacks realize that increasing the minimum wage prices many in their communities out of the workforce because the wage is higher than the skillset many blacks, particularly black men, have. Unfortunately, on top of receiving poor quality education, many blacks have low job skills. This combination has lead to disproportionately high and sustained levels of unemployment among blacks. To have an opportunity to develop work skills and increase their economic value, many blacks prefer expanded economic opportunities that allow for participation in the workforce. Increasing minimum wage only benefits those fortunate enough to be employed, not those who aren’t.
None of these issues, as they relate to blacks, matters to the NAACP. They are chiefly concerned with maintaining cultural and political relevancy, literally at the expense of those they claim to represent. For this very reason, the NAACP should cease self-identifying as a civil rights organization, change their status from a 501(c)(3) to a 501(c)(4) and be done with it already.
Then they can whore w/o lying.
