Deval Patrick and the NAACP: Will they stand strong?
11 Nov 2006
As a former New England area NAACP Legal Chair, I read with great interest that Boston NAACP President Leonard (Lenny) C. Alkins is quoted in the Metro recently as saying:

"We are proud of the fact that [Deval Patrick] is African-American, and we do not make any apologies for that."

Sound pretty strong. However, what I discovered is that the NAACP -- the nation's premier Civil Rights organization -- has materially altered its Mission Statement as noted herein. Significantly, they have deleted any talk about "informing the public" and "taking lawful action to eliminate unlawful discrimination."

You can read anothe excerpt from my recent blawg entry below, or just skip to the blawg from this link; also there are movies that highlight some of these issues at the related links; don't hesitate to email me if you have questions because there is a WHOLE LOT going on here.

Notice to Activist: Two Acts must be revoked immediately!
11 Nov 2006
NOTE TO FELLOW ACTIVISTS: the MOST PRESSING ISSUES TODAY are two bills that were signed into law on October 17, 2006. These new acts that were passed into law by congress -- The Military Commissions Act of 2006 and the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007, trump any other issues out there today because these are the keys to ultimate tyranny. If these acts are NOT repealed we can kiss it all goodbye. I would suggest that we make this our first order of business and set aside all other none essential issues and focus on getting these repealed.
