Posted on 09/14/2009 9:15:04 AM PDT by Rufus2007
The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), also known as the Black Press of America, which is a non-partisan 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization, has decided to show its disapproval of South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson's "You Lie" remarks by canceling a convention in the state.
"Rep. Wilson's remarks were racist, disrespectful and a disingenuous violation - not only of President Obama - but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending Black dollars where Black people are not respected," NNPA Chairman Danny J. Bakewell Sr. said in a statement.

“Black Press of America, which is a non-partisan...”
Not even close.
The biggest racists in America today are black.
Damn, the statement continues to pay dividends. Keeping the cabal of racist poverty pimps out of SC. GOod job, Joe.
Was Rep. Joe Wilson telling the truth about Barack Obama? Of course. ObamaCare will indeed cover illegals because there is no screening to weed out illegals.
I’m sure this will have a HUGH effect on South Carolina. /s
South Carolina always has boycotts. It is no wonder that they have the largest unemployment in the United States (well they might be third now since two states have recently were higher). However, why South Carolina and not any other state is picked on is a mystery.
Is the NNPA racist?
l understand youve taken exception to my calling you whores. lm sorry. l apologize. l ask you to note that l did not call you callous-ass strumpets, fornicatresses, or low-born gutter sluts. But l did say whores. No escaping that. And for that slip of the tongue... l apologize.

It just proves the liberals’ die-hard belief that if you oppose Obama on anything, you are a racist.
i have to get a subscription to that paper so i can cancel it.
I think I will call the tourism dept for information. SC sounds like a nice place to spend a vacation and a few bucks.......red
“Rep. Wilson’s remarks were racist, disrespectful and a disingenuous violation - not only of President Obama - but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending Black dollars where Black people are not respected”
How is calling a liar what he is, racist?
When did our nation start printing “black dollars?”
When will these people settle on what to call themselves, black or African American, PICK ONE.
“The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers” - Thomas Jefferson
News papers? What’s that?
Another obsolete medium that means nothing any more.
Amazing. People who will be affected by that decision are more likely black business owners than Rep. Wilson. And calling the interjection ‘racist’ is just plain foolish.
These people are dumber than dirt. Even when they can draft their statement in their leisure they can't formulate an opinion that makes sense, much less blows spittle. So, disrespect of the office of the institution of the presidency is racist?
Thanks for validating that all the democrats who booed when George Bush spoke of rescuing SSI are racists. We knew it already but you validated it.
Anything against Obama is racist, just like why a black gets a job with inferior grades or experience over a white (AA) is perfectly legal.
Facts are not the primary driver, white guilt is.
Who reads news papers anymore...They’re only good for coupons.
Didn't the NAACP boycott of SC create a tourism boom there?
More low IQ thugs on parade.
LOL - NOW they want respect showed to the President of the United States. Where were they over the past 8 years of Bush Lied - People Died / ChimpieMcBushHitler / “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”. This selective outrage falls flat, especially considering that Obama DID lie and one brave soul had the ‘nads to call him on it.
So, all twelve or so people (using the media’s estimation calculation of 30,000 that showed up in DC Saturday) that belong to this org. will not hold their convention at the local Motel 6 conference room ....
When GWB was booed by Democrat Congressmen, some of whom were black, were they racists? Just wondering.
Just a few examples in the past week:
I find that when someone plays the race card that they only have one other card in their deck. THE JOKER. And are devoid of facts.
So which black ghetto will they be holding their conference at?
Or are they moving to another nice touristy spot to gather at?
It is epidemic.
Courtesy of your local self-hating white liberals.
I hope those black racists do not try to come to Fl. We do not like racists.
Ha! LOL at this blatantly racist organization who is most decidedly partisan.
This could be called irony, but I call it hypocrisy.
Well, FWIW I will be going back to N. Myrtle Beach next summer. The businesses in Barefoot Landing and the condo owners will be glad to earn their money from me. I’ll probably spend more than these cheapskates who are doing their “boycott” anyway. Piss on them.
The same First Amendment that these ‘journalists’ enjoy apparently does not protect Joe Wilson shouting “Liar!” in a crowded theatre.
Did you know Kanye West daddy was a radical Black Panther?
‘racist’?! You have to be kidding me!
Blatant Reverse Racism by a racist organization???
It is not racist to disagree with a black person.
But taking “black money” out of the equation does make the racism of disagreement the topic.
Danny J. Bakewell Sr., racist pimp! Yeah, I'm sure they are 'non partisan'! /s
They probably only booked the convention (if even they did that), so they could loudly unbook it in protest.
The Wilson thing came up, so they unbooked it.
They probably have it booked for every year in SC for the next 10 years, so every year they can get in a snit over something and unbook it again.
I just want to know when Black folks are going to stop killing people. Or at least when their leaders like Mr. Blackwell are going to notice how many black murderers are killing their own?
You cannot turn on the local news and not see an african american murderer.
I axe you now, don’t you think the NNPA needs a little disrespect?
You’re probably right. If they’d gone ahead with it, the NAACP would be all over them for breaking their useless “boycott” of South Carolina, which only seems to be observed by Democratic politicians and the fringiest of the black racist fringe. (And only ever seriously hurt black-owned businesses in the SC Lowcountry who specialized in tourism involving the rich post-slavery Gullah culture.)
I wonder if the tax money for their organization is only black money from blacks that pay taxes?
Another Black non partisan organization. I wonder if the White Newsgroups are going to boycott SC also?
Reminds me of a great lyric from the Five Chinese Brothers
And I wish we were married
So we could get divorced
Get over this loving stuff
Let nature take its course
You can’t choose who you love
Darling we’re the living proof
So we’ll ride this old landslide where it takes us
Headlong to the truth
“Rep. Wilson’s remarks were racist,
So in these people minds if a person is a liar, no one can call that person a liar, if that persons skin happens to be black?
Sorta pathetic isn’t it?
