COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The head of the Colorado Springs NAACP is crying foul after a picture of President Barack Obama was removed from a sign at the Peterson Air Force Base commissary.
The picture accompanied a sign near the entrance saying the government-run military grocery store would be closed on Presidents Day.
The Defense Commissary Agency, which oversees the store, says employees took it down after customers complained that the holiday is about presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, not Obama.
Rosemary Harris, president of the Colorado Springs branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, says the commissary's decision "bodes poorly for the progress that we hoped we would see in this country."
Rosemary Harris says ... the commissary's decision "bodes poorly for the progress that we hoped we would see in this country."
Oh, please. Even Michelle 0bama has said "he (Barack) hasn't even done anything yet."
What an idiot, that organization is THE most racist organization in the US.
Obama disciples are pissed because President’s Day isn’t in honor of Obama? What kind of Kool Aid are these freaks on?
You mean President’s Day isn’t about Reagan?
It’s President’s day in celebration of all the Presidents. If that is the case then ALL of the President’s pictures should be there as well. If not all...then none. Makes sense.
This would be rational only if last year’s sign had a picture of President Bush on it.
Wait a minute. Put the picture back up. Obama is Abraham Lincoln reincarnated. It’s in all the papers.
Inclined to agree; and of course, the photo is nowhere to be found.
Isn’t it Black History Month? Only BLACK presidents should be represented! :P
Haven’t we’ve seen Obama’s face ENOUGH to last a lifetime or 2?
By it’s very name, the NAACP is for the Advancement of colored people over other races. Ergo, it IS a racist organization.
Except Washington, who it is obviously meant to honor, and possibly Lincoln.
Reminds me of a movie where the crowd all had little Nazi flags at a parade,
and the SS guy walked by “encouraging” them all to wave their flags more enthusiastically.
Eff you Rosemary Harris. Commie C.
Oh goody! We finally have confirmation of his identity.
0bama may indeed be the next Lincoln,
a president causing a civil war,
if they keep going the way they are.
First of all, it is a LIE that past President Day's featured pictures of GW Bush, or any other President.
I have shopped at Commissaries in the states and overseas for 25 years, and the DCA (Defense Commissary Agency) has NEVER displayed the current President's picture.
Secondly, it used to be "Washington's Birthday" until the 1990's.
Third - for some Blacks, race = Über Alles. That is THEIR shame. God will judge them for that.
I was present at a US Military installation during the inauguration. A group of black soldiers ran hung color pictures of Obama there, and sent an e-mail that the main auditorium (which held about 400) would have it live on the main screen. I asked if they did this for Bush in 2004 - to which the secretary to me "No way."
Sure is... shout it loud and often !
If they do not like it we need to start up the NAAWP and fast. It is going to be very important in the near future.
