Are You an NAACP American? Sign the Petition
Posted on July 14, 2010 by By Benjamin Todd Jealous
Yesterday, the NAACP passed a resolution condemning the racist acts of Tea Party protesters. The backlash from the Tea Party has been furious. But we are not an organization that shies away from controversy. The NAACP was founded on hope, not hate -- and we will not stand idly by as some work to divide our nation.
Add your name to our pledge to unify America and stop the racism:
The NAACP does not have a problem with the Tea Party, nor its existence. We have a problem with their acceptance and their welcoming of prejudice into their organization.
