The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People):
The NAACP Awards are given for: 1) Television, 2) Recording, 3) Motion Picture, 4) Literature, and 5) Writing and Directing.
How about NAACP Awards for: 1) Education, 2) Science, 3) Mathematics, 4) Entrepreneurship, 5) Politics, 6) Adventure, Motivators, etc.
Over 50% of black youth do not graduate from high school which means they will be relegated to low paying jobs or crime for their entire lives. At any time 34% of blacks are incarcerated.
If the NAACP is truly for the advancement of colored people, please, please, please, give meaningful awards! Heroes should not be movie stars (with rare exception like Bill Cosby) but positive contributors to our society.
