When black bloggers or Black journalist say that
Robert Bird was a recruiter for the Klan while in his 20s and 30s, rising to the title of Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops of his local chapter. After leaving the group, Byrd spoke in favor of the Klan during his early political career. Though he claimed to have left the organization in 1943, Byrd wrote a letter in 1946 to the group's Imperial Wizard stating "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia." Byrd defended the Klan in his 1958 U.S. Senate campaign when he was 41 years old.
Despite being the only Senator to vote against both African American U.S. Supreme Court nominees (liberal Thurgood Marshall and conservative Clarence Thomas and filibustering the Civilm Rights Act of 1964, the NAACP supported this man who would lynch black men, women and children. Byrd has since said joining the Klan was his "greatest mistake" and the NAACP gave him a 100% rating on their issues.
The National NAACP needs to transform itself and back it's attack dogs off of this blogger.
Oh, that's right, the NAACP attack dog (Kevin M) recently lost a bid to become a member of the board, and will take any action he can to show he is worthy of a seat in the future.
As Kevin said on his NAACP Chapter blog, "Sometimes success comes in stages and this was just the first stage of my road onto the board. ;)"
I'm coming back bigger and stronger than ever!"
AAPP says: I guess that "bigger and stronger" can be accomplished by attacking me and other black bloggers bro Kevin? In the name of getting an NAACP Board seat, let me attack a fellow afrospear blogger. Following in the Footsteps of Ben Jealous? Attack when you don't know the facts? Or attack to those who say the NAACP is out of step with the needs of the black community.
Well Mr. NAACP Kevin M you won't be able to attack me on my own
UPDATE: As reported by another black blogger, Gina, at What About Our Daughters,
the NAACP Legal Goons have Invaded WAOD comments section following calls for Jealous to resign.
See, I knew I was not the only person under attack by the NAACP and their representatives.
