What Does NAACP Stand For?
North Carolina NAACP president William Barber II reflected on Martin Luther King Jr. Day by slamming one of the Senate’s only two black members, Tim Scott. “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said of Scott. “[T]he extreme right wing down here [in South Carolina] finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, DC, and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.” On the contrary, Scott is no dummy. He thinks for himself, unlike too many blacks on the Democrat Poverty Plantation. And say, isn’t it supposed to be the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People? (Don’t miss Scott’s outstanding reply.)
