There is a lot of debate to whether the NAACP is relevant in a age of Barack Obama. I have debated this issue both privately and publicly for some time. I have been up and down regarding the NAACP. At it's 100th birthday I feel more thumbs down than up. Now Barack Obama and NAACP president Benjamin Todd Jealous addressed the NAACP's 100th anniversary convention in New York City. Yes, the first Black President and the first Black U.S. Attorney General showed up but provided no bailout or bail out plans for black America. Nor did NAACP president Benjamin Todd Jealous hold Barack Obama or his own organization accountable. Does American need he NAACP anymore? does Black America need the NAACP anymore. Let's talk about it tonight on the AA Political Slugfest... "if you can handle the truth."
