You know what, I had hopes when Ben Jealous became president of the NAACP.
I feel completely let down.
We have real issues in the Black community and Ben Jealous needs to address them or sit his ass down. We don't have time for your clowning, Ben.
We can't afford your bulls**t.
The Tea Party isn't our problem, the Tea Party isn't our issue.
Black families are losing and have lost homes at an alarming rate.
Where's your study on that?
Where's your study on unemployment and how it is devastating our community?
Where's your study on the inner city schools?
At what point are you going to lead, Ben Jealous?
Or are you just going to be the lawn jockey for the Democratic Party?
Is that offensive to you?
Your refusal to address the very real issues that face us as a community offend me.
