    Wonder if one could sue NAACP for severe emotional distress for being such a racist organization and making people who arent African American feel like garbage because of the color of their skin or because their ancestors might have been slave owners.

    I'm disturbed by the fact that the NAACP is planning to boycott any businesses that don't score passing grades on its "Diversity Report Card".

    Isn't the whole concept of "grades", itself, just a holdover from the oppressive, racist heirarchy? Isn't the NAACP preventing these businesses from "feeling good about themselves"?

    Do these people realize that some companies will re-think moving to Chicago and Phillidelphia instead of buckling under to this type of blackmail???

    I don't understand why groups like this can't look at the positive things going on in the black community.. There was almost a black president - Colin Powel, Lawyers, Doctors, Senators, and Congressman. Instead they are stuck in history complaining about slavery 150 yrs ago. Yes, it was an awful time in our history, but everyone who was involved in it is long dead, it's time to let it die already.

    I wonder how many African countries/business will be sued as well...Africa was probably the single largest supplier of, well, africans to the colonial US of A that I can think of.

    normally, i don't call for outright execution except in extreme cases like rapists, and child molesters and abductors. The NAACP is moving towards that same scum-bag level in my mind.

    I think the US Government should pay reparations to all former slaves.

    I hope that was what he meant - just a poor attempt at humor.
