The Gantt Report
White woman in the NAACP
By Lucius Gantt
I am so tired of the Negro haters and morning radio clowns criticizing the white woman who is active in a West Coast NAACP Chapter!
One white woman that acts Black could never ever compare to the millions and millions of Black people in America and around the world that “act white” everyday!
Most of the people of color you know not only love a race other than their own; they hate Black African oriented things more than anything else!
They hate African names, they hate African languages, they hate African history, they hate African culture and they hate African style!
Most African Americans love what their exploiters want them to love and they hate what their oppressors want them to hate!
The white NAACP woman was just fine until the white newspapers made an issue of her afro-centric behavior.
Dumb a** Twitter tweets and stupid Facebook posts talk about how bad it is to be a white NAACP woman.
If the haters would pick up a d*mn book sometimes they would know The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has had white women members since the day it was founded!
The Race Riot of 1908 in Abraham Lincoln’s hometown of Springfield, Ill., had highlighted the urgent need for an effective civil rights organization in the U.S. This event is often cited as the catalyst for the formation of the NAACP. Mary White Ovington, journalist William English Walling and Henry Moskowitz met in New York City in January 1909 and the NAACP was born. Solicitations for support went out to more than 60 prominent Americans, and a meeting date was set for Feb. 12, 1909.
This was intended to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the birth of President Abraham Lincoln, who emancipated enslaved African Americans. While the meeting did not take place until three months later, this date is often cited as the founding date of the organization.
The NAACP was founded by a diverse group composed of W.E.B DuBois, Ida B. Wellls, Archibald Grimke, Henry Moskowitz, Mary White Ovington, Oswald Garrison Villard, William English Walling (the last son of a former slave-holding family), Florence Kelley, a social reformer and friend of Du Bois, and Charles Edward Russell, a renowned muckraker and close friend of Walling who helped plan the NAACP and served as acting chairman of the National Negro Committee (1909), a forerunner to the NAACP.
Who cares about what the race or color is of NAACP members other than society devils that want to discredit white women that care about what happens in Black communities?
Nobody seemed to hate white folk that did work with Blacks in the past. Nobody told the white man John Brown to stop leading slave revolts against racist slave masters. No one told white women and men to get off the buses on Freedom Rides. Haters didn’t even walk out of the movie theaters during the movie Selma when the film showed white folks marched with the SCLC and other groups in the “Bloody Sunday” trek across the Edmond Pettis Bridge in Alabama!
You tell me, who is the “Black leader” in the city or town where you live? The correct answer, for most Gantt Report readers is, there isn’t one!
We are quick to say that Blackness is more than a skin tone. Blackness is a state of mind!
So shut up and let the white woman stand up and speak out about issues of interest to all people in her community! Instead of hating, you should be joining her in fighting the beasts of the world!
