The NAACP will march on Washington Oct. 2, officials announced at the organization’s 101st annual convention in Kansas City this week.

Leaders will march to highlight social problems intensified by the recession.

NAACP members have also “overwhelmingly” passed a resolution that condemns what the group thinks is racist behavior by the Tea Party, according to the Washington Post.

The newspaper reported Tuesday:

“The resolution has pitted the civil rights group against the conservative grass-roots movement, which has repeatedly denied allegations of racism and decried the NAACP’s actions…

“The tea party resolution, which was submitted by the NAACP’s Kansas City branch and was first reported by the Kansas City Star, has sparked a hot debate. It says members of the movement have ‘displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically’ and calls “the racist elements” within the tea party ‘a threat to progress.'”

Tea Party supporters denied the claims and condemned the NAACP’s resolution.

Gina Loudon, one of the founders of the St. Louis Tea Party, told Fox News that the NAACP’s charges are untrue and called the resolution a “shame,” the Post said.

The NAACP convention will continue through July 16. First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the event on its second day.

  1. And now you know how bigoted the NAACP is. Examine closely the protests of the Tea Party vs. La Raza or ACORNs activities. Where does the NAACP stand ACORN…or on the BPs intimidating voters at polling places?

    Where has their OUTRAGE been for months over these despicable acts? We’ll never know because they won’t answer and the blindly biased MSM (main sewer media) won’t cover it. Is this another Jesse & Al stunt?

    AMERICA BEWARE! They are just gearing up to divide the nation some more before they are faced with a November to Remember!!

  2. Why the hell does everything come back to race? Anything that ever goes wrong to black people comes back to race. Bull shit. Nobody should get special treatment just because people that are enforcing the law are afraid of backlash from the black community. (P.S. Rev. Jackson is a joke)

  3. How stupid people can be. They voted for a President just because of his color and that is somehow not racism? If we voted for a white president because he is white it would be racism. WTF?

  4. Whhhhaaaat? The bigots are in the t party. Lost your way? I’m in the t party and thank the NAACP for bringing our leaders to task for pretending idiotic backwards and uneducated redneck behavior doesn’t exist. Thank you NAACP. The Palins of thecworld need to get a grip or will be history at the elections. These nuts only make us look like were from some inbred brainless locale with no interest in fiscal budgeting or less govt control. Get it.? No, you probably don’t if your one of the inbreds.

  5. Thank you all for your comments and participation in the forum. Let’s remember to be respectful to each other, regardless of different views.
