Why Knowone Should Attend NAACP Convention When Romney is Scheuled to Speak By V.Lyn
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will address the annual NAACP convention on July 11 in Houston, Texas. While it has been a matter of form for presidential nominees of both parties to address the NAACP, in this instance I find it particularly offensive. Long before President Obama had taken office when he was Senator Obama presidential nominee, they, the republican party, have denigrated him, disrespected him, questioned his legitimacy. Does anyone remember that on the day 1st Black Presidents of the United States of America took the oath of office the “supposedly” forgot to swear him in properly and that the following day they had to swear him in again. Yeah forgot sure the first time in the history of this country and it just happened to the first black President. Does anyone remember how they called out you lie and few republicans rebuked the Congressman who screamed that out. Does anyone remember when that white cunt shook her finger in the presidents face and the only outrage came from the left those few NON Cowardly ones that is. The vitriol and disrespect for him and his family and black folks in general has merely escalated. They have attacked him and those he has placed in office and black people in general from every possible avenue. Their contempt and hatred for black people and their fear that the status quo has changed is in full effect, Latinos are getting a small dose of what we have endured for over 400 years and for them like for us it will merely continue. Mitt Romney is no better that the Gingrich’s, Santoruim’s, and David Dukes. In many regards he is much worse.
While I believe we should always be open to other view points we however do not have to invite the Klan to brunch and Mitt Romney and the republican party have proven themselves no better than current day klan members.
While there are those who will say that Romney will most likely talk in more detail about concerns that Black people are faced with in detail in my opinion is that whatever Romney says will be mere lip service, spoken for political expediency and retracted the moment he is no longer before black people the famous Romney pivot in full effect. His appearance at the NAACP Convention on July 11th is a slap in the face to all black people …and I for one even if it may sound petty I hope not one single black person attends.
