The president of the NAACP's chapter in Norfolk, Virginia is under fire and facing calls for his resignation, following a message on his Facebook wall that's out of sync with the his national organization's messaging about the Trayvon Martin case.
Tristan Breaux angered his organization's members by writing on Friday that '[a]s I look at this George Zimmerman case ... I wonder why is it that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim.'
'Are we blinded about why Trayvon was at his dad's house in the first place, and why he wasn't at home at the time he was shot? Please think logically and not racially...'
Breaux, 25, wrote those words the day before a jury agreed with George Zimmerman's self-defense claim and found him not guilty of murder and manslaughter in the case of Martin's death.
Local African-American officials are calling for Breaux's head.
Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick told WAVY-TV10 that 'the national [NAACP] office should come into this.'It would be an effort to silence this fellow. I don't know how recall process works, but I think they should recall him.'
'He obviously does not have the maturity when to speak and when not to speak.'

If that is how Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick said it he should brush up on his grammar.
