I wonder if the accuser can PROVE that the NAACP has been literally bought off by moneyed gay groups? Could it not simply be that, whether or not one approves of homosexuality, the NAACP has come to think that the principles undergirding the fight for African-American rights also extend to other groups? In Washington, DC I recall NAACP also talking about workers' rights and the rights of women.
And guess what: there are Blacks who are gay, who are women (at least 50%),and who are working class folk (at least 75%)/
Perhaps some people have become aware of what Dr. King once called the "varieties of injustice" in our society.
