BALTIMORE (AP) The president of the NAACP is stepping down as head of the nation's oldest and largest civil rights group, according to newspaper reports. Kweisi Mfume, who has been president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People since 1996, planned to make the announcement Tuesday, The (Baltimore) Sun, citing an anonymous source, reported in Tuesday editions.
The resignation was also reported Tuesday in a USA Today opinions column by weekly contributor DeWayne Wickham.
Last month, the NCAAP announced that the Internal Revenue Service was reviewing the organization's federal tax-exempt status. NAACP chairman Julian Bond said the investigation stems from a July speech he gave that was critical of President Bush. Tax-exempt organizations are required to remain nonpartisan.

I question the timing of this /sarc.
More like he's getting out due to the heat from the commetns and actions from those like Bond
So who's going to replace him?
I will be interested to see who ends up replacing Mfume.
NAACP chairman Julian Bond said the investigation stems from a July speech he gave that was critical of President Bush. Tax-exempt organizations are required to remain nonpartisan.
A proper replacement would be Fidel Castro.
Morning good news
Or Jefferson Davis.
What a big loss to the African American community. </lie>
Kweisi Mfume once had mainstream support from Americans.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People should change its name to the National Association for the Advancement of Liberalized, Disenfranchised Americans. Furthermore, retain Mfume, fire the rest, and adopt a conservative platform.
The other option would be to replace Mfume with Sharpton to reflect the lazy Donkey that the once prideful Stallion, the NAACP, has become.
Kweisi Mfume, US politician and civil rights activist; Frizzell Gray (Baltimore, Maryland 24 October 1948).
Changed his name in the 70s; "It's West African. I did it at a time when my life was changing tremendously.
My great-aunt suggested it. She said, "Kweisi means 'conquering' and Mfume means 'son of kings.' "
He had a rap sheet in Baltimore longer than your arm as well.
Or, at least......
Clinton after all he was the first black president
Hey, the NAACP could use the "kinder, gentler" touch that Berry would bring...*BARF!*
I wouldn't put this beyond them, though...
Probably no connection but I see where Tavis Smiley is leaving NPR.
Let's see, why should I care about what happens to the NAACP?
Mfume will be joining the fundraising arm of the her heiney campaign for senate re-election.
Maybe he's positioning himself for a run at Kofi's job.
Mfume realizes that what Julian Bond did to GW Bush has set American Blacks back to the dark ages. The NAACP has no political power whatsoever. Being Black, liberal and Democrat ain't where it's at!!!! Mfume saw the handwriting on the wall and either got out or was pushed out by Bond, the lunatic left-wing "traitor" Democrat!!! Blacks better wake up and get with the program. They are going down fast!!! Both the Congessional Black Caucus and the NAACP have been reduced to social and meeting clubs, that's all!! And....I must say American Blacks did this to themselves!!!
