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.

These people should be comedians.

Black Press of America talking about Black money and Black spending , and calling someone else racist.

Blow it out your butts.Your flatulent whines are getting heard so often they are beginning to be ignored, and it’s about time.

I havent heard anything but racism accusations since this Usurper came into the White House.

Lets not forget The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) calling Rep Wilson racist is the very same group that barred whites from a reception by Obama at the White House.

They are the racists.

Black Press Week, the annual celebration of the birth of the Black Press of America, March 16, 1827, will salute America’s first family, celebrate civil rights champions and honor a political pioneer during its annual Newsmaker of the Year Award Dinner March 19.

“Black Press Week promises to be the most exciting ever,” says Dorothy R. Leavell, chair of the NNPA Foundation, unveiling this year’s honorees, selected by member publishers. “The pride of our profession gladdens our hearts as we acknowledge the first African-American president and replay the role of the Black Press over these 182 years.”

Guess they've forgotten about that inconvenient little "I have a dream" thingie.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Oops, guess some people don't want us to be there, yet.

To all liberal Democrat blacks:

You lie. You lie. You lie. You lie. You lie. You lie. You lie. You lie.

Does that guarantee that all liberal Democrat blacks will not come to my neighborhood?

Mr Levin, if you are out there, can something LEGALLY be done to challenge their 501c3 tax status. It is clear that they are NOT non-partisan as is required......?

Thanks ahead of time.

god riddance. Racists are not welcome anywhere, much less South Carolina.

Uppity types are the bane of American society. Let them go to Baltimore or some other feral uppity enclave
