Default NAACP President Rips Black Sen. Tim Scott: He Does Not Believe In Civil Rights

The NAACPETCPWDTLU strikes again...

NAACP President Rips Black Sen. Tim Scott: He Does Not Believe In Civil Rights

Quote:
Appearing on CNN Wednesday, the president of the NAACP slammed incoming black Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) as being a Republican who does not “believe in civil rights.”

When asked to evaluate the incoming class of congresspeople, including a diverse group of women, Hispanics, blacks, and Asians, Ben Jealous took the opportunity to bring up that Sen. Scott has an “F” score with the NAACP’s annual report card.

The NAACP head praised the fact that 150 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, we can once again say we have a black Senator, however, “there is nothing but room for him to improve.”

When asked by host Suzanne Malveaux why Scott so consistently receives an “F” score with the NAACP, Jealous explained that it’s not due to his political affiliation:

Quote:
“We have Republicans who believe in civil rights — unfortunately he is not one of them. And unfortunately his party, as you know, has really gone after so-called RINOs, as they call them, these Republicans who believe in civil rights, again and again.”
the cnredd "Identity Rule for Democrats"...

He's a black senator who opposes civil rights? Why would any senator, black or white, oppose civil rights?

The point is "He doesn't"...

YOU are showing your identity politics by simply swallowing whatever the president of the NAACP TELLS you to swallow...

I'm not "swallowing" anything. I just asked a question for petes sake.

I had to look the guy up. I'd never heard of Tim Scott.


The success of a black Republican can present an awkward situation for partisans on both sides. Republicans, generally inclined to mock the liberal fascination with race, suddenly find themselves moved to expound upon the importance of breaking racial barriers. Meanwhile, Democrats, who normally love to celebrate African-American firsts, experience an uncharacteristic onset of reticence. In a much-debated New York Times Op-Ed, the political scientist Adolph L. Reed, Jr., explained why he wasn’t celebrating. Reed, who is black, has written about himself as a member of “the left,” and he is deeply critical of the conservative movement; in his essay, he made passing reference to what he called “thinly veiled racism” among Tea Party Republicans. And he argued that while Scott’s elevation “seemed like another milestone for African-Americans,” that perception was misleading. He cautioned against “cheerleading over racial symbolism” and suggested that Scott was merely the latest in a long line of “cynical tokens” put forward by Republicans.

That article makes it sound like there is some sort of equal effect on both parties here--there's not. The Republican party is only going to GAIN from this, and the Democratic party is only going to lose in the sense that it has less cause to levy the racism accusation against the RNC.

Nothing new here. It's just another form of the usual tired-old 'uncle-Tom' accusation.

The Democratic Party has nothing to lose and everything to gain by diversity.

No one is calling Mr Scott an "uncle tom". I'm sure not.

The GOP needs every warm bodied person of color in their party they can get.

I don't care how many little anonymous tweet twits don't like Senator Scott. I'm just hearing about him now and I have NO PROBLEM with him at all. NONE.

You're just trying to stir up the pot, redd. You paint ALL Democrats the same.

I'm thrilled that he is the first African American Senator to be elected in his state. May he serve the people wisely.

The NAACP platform is crafted through an annual voting process which engages grassroots-level delegates who vote on the group’s national agenda. That agenda calls for an expansive role for federal government spending in black communities. Mr Scott is a small government conservative. He opposes the NAACP agenda.
