When white folks in the Democrat Party tell the leadership in the NAACP to jump, they say, �Yaz sir Boss! How high should we be jumpin�?� About high enough to totally disregard the overwhelming sentiment of the African American community that are against Gay Marriage.
Politico reports the board of the NAACP, one of the nation�s oldest and largest African American advocacy organizations, has passed a resolution supporting gay marriage in the wake of President Obama�s public endorsement of same-sex unions.
�The mission of the NAACP has always been to ensure the political, social and economic equality of all people,� board chair Roslyn M. Brock said in a statement following passage of the resolution on Saturday. �We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law.�
The chairman emeritus, Julian Bond, had already pledged his support earlier this week as part of a coalition of black leaders trying to tamp down speculation that Obama�s support of gay marriage would divide the black community.
