----------perhaps--the NAACP would also do well--- if it buried the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons type--- constant agendas-- to turn every black-white incident into 'whites at fault' race riots.----and can you --NAACP;--not abide a White Entertainment Network to compliment ---as it were ---your allowed Black Entertainment Network ? You see ? Some issues are one sided----on both sides.

These people complain about not getting any respect and then go pull a stupid stunt like this. I guess it had been too many days since Al and Jessie had been on the nightly news and this was the best trick they could come up with. My advice is if they don't want to be called the n-word then quit acting like one. And believe me where I grew up about 70 years ago we knew what one acted like.

So symbolically burying the N-word is the best this antiquated group can do to keep itself in the news? It sounds like a desparate attempt to be relavant.

Heck, the only people to use the N-word in the last 30 years anyway are American Blacks.

NAACP: time to stop playing the race card and to start teaching your people to be responsible for themselves. No more playing 'victim'. Evolve like everyone else! Heck, there are third-world illegals here who don't bother to learn a lick of English that are already passing you up.

The NAACP is trying to re-establish some measure of relevance but they're a has-been organization.
