"People are afraid they feel intimidated and offended when they see the flag," Felton Barnes of the SCLC said.
This proves the NAACP has lost it's mandate and have not advanced with the times. "Colored people" have advanced but the NAACP has slithered back into old Jim Crow patterns and ways of thinking.
Their description of how some blacks feel about the flag brings to mind the racist term coon. I am embarrassed to continue to read stories of this issue with the NAACP. This money could be better spent by assisting inner city programs and promoting the development of young talent.

I was never aware that the NAACP had any mandate. It has always been supported mainly by white communists rather than black Americans anyway. Its founder was a communist and its current president is a communist.
Black Americans could kill off the NAACP's undue influence on politics and culture, but nobody else can do so. It wouldn't even take a majority of black Americans to accomplish the demise of this phony organization. A determined minority could do it.
