After looking at the heavy and continuous Jewish and Communist involvement in and with the NAACP for its first several decades we can't help but have some real questions as to what the organization was and is really all about. As I've said in the past, there are many who believe that the NAACP started out as a "good" organization dedicated to really helping black people and then, somewhere along the line, it started to go sour. I have never agreed with that assessment, although some people of honest and sincere conviction have believed it.
I believe that the leftist involvement in the NAACP even during its early days gives the lie to such an assumption. Many have noted the blacks leaned toward Communists and their front groups only because the Communists were the only ones to give them a hearing. You must bear in mind that any group the Communists are willing to listen to and support is a group that the Reds see as one they can use and manipulate for their own devious purposes. They give no one a "hearing" out of any real sense of fairness.
What I have also found interesting and encouraging is that, in the last few years there seem to be some black folks that have begun to see through the facade put forth by the NAACP. One such gentleman is the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, who in 2003, wrote a book called SCAM--How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America. Rev. Peterson is the founder and president of the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny (BOND). The purpose of his organization is "rebuilding the family by rebuilding the man." Suffice it to say that Rev. Peterson's take on the NAACP is somewhat different than the politically correct versions of that organization the media is so very careful to spoonfeed us.
Rev. Peterson has written: "Since it was formed with the help of Marxist W.E.B. DuBois in the early 20th century, the NAACP has been used willingly as a tool of the Democratic Party and the socialists who portray themselves as 'progressives' in the Congressional Black Caucus. The NAACP was rooted in a socialist vision, and no change is likely to occur until thinking blacks rise up to reject the racist and extreme leftist leanings of this group." So how do you like them apples? Rev. Peterson tells it like it is. This is not the opinion of some Grand Dragon in the KKK but of a black minister who knows the real score.
Rev. Peterson then goes on to deal with some of the officers in the NAACP and their leftist proclivities. He noted Ben Chavis, selected in 1993 to become the new executive director of that group. He noted some of the people Chavis hired to help him steer the direction of the NAACP--Don Rojas, "former Director of Communications for the People's Revolutionary Government of Grenada under Maurice Bishop. (Bishop was working closely with Fidel Castro to convert Grenada into a socialist nation.) The other was Lewis Myers Jr., a leftist attorney who had worked as a legal advisor to Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan." In a left-leaning outfit like the NAACP these men should have felt right at home.
Another inestimable individual Rev. Peterson went on to deal with was a man named Frizzell Gray. This individual was, as of 2003, the president of the NAACP. You say you never heard of Frizzell Gray. Most folks have not, by that name. Well, then, maybe you know him by his new moniker--Kweisi Mfume. Rev. Peterson has noted that as a teenager Gray/Mfume fathered five children by three different women--none of which he ever bothered to marry. Rev. Peterson observed that: "Mfume is an example of what's drastically wrong with black men today...Mfume's own immoral conduct and his irresponsibility as a father must endear him to Jesse Jackson and other adulterers who portray themselves as the moral voice for black America." You have to ask if Mfume's immorality is indicative of where the NAACP is at this point in time. If not, then why was such a man made president of this organization? Does anyone honestly think a man with this background is a spokesman for honest and hardworking black people? I would hope that more honest and God-fearing blacks would begin to shun the NAACP and its leadership as they would the plague.
