The NAACP has come out against the AZ immigration law that is being mischaracterized by our national media.
“Governor Brewer’s signature on SB1070 is another attempt to roll the clock back on civil rights protections in this country.”
Attempt means that it didn't happen or hasn't happened. Two years ago, we told you that the CA branch of the NAACP actually TOOK MONEY from known civil rights violators: PECHANGA.
The president of the California NAACP has been paid more than $40,000 in consulting fees – and the organization itself has received $60,000 – from a coalition of Indian tribes at the same time the civil rights group has endorsed four ballot measures pushed by its tribal benefactors.
The payments to Alice Huffman, who has served as president of the state conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People since 1999, continue a three-year pattern in which Huffman's political firm has been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by special interest groups.
Those same interests, including tobacco and pharmaceutical companies, have also donated tens of thousands of dollars directly to the state NAACP while receiving the organization's backing.
OP: The Pechanga Band has stripped 25% of their tribe of their voting rights, right to due process, right to have attorneys present, right to confront their accusers, in a thus far successful effort to eliminate two large voting blocs. Now, a group that proclaims they are for civil rights, sides with violators of civil rights, all for $100,000 grand. I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that the only African-American members of Pechanga, who were Hunter family members were kept from the tribes schools, being thrown out when they were disenrolled.

Get the drift: POTENTIAL civil rights violation NO WAY ACTUAL CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATION: OKAY!!
