This is not your father’s NAACP.
Tristan Breaux, age 25, is finding it hard to escape the plantation. According to the Virginian Pilot, the youngest president of the Norfolk, Virginia chapter of the NAACP posted this on his Facebook page.
"I wonder why is it that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim. Are we blinded about why Trayvon was at his dad's house in the first place, and why he wasn't at home at the time he was shot? Please think logically and not racially."
Here’s the rest of the story:
Several local NAACP members asked Breaux to take the post down, and he initially refused, said Jeffrey Logan, a former member of the local chapter's executive committee.The post went up last week. Breaux's Facebook page is no longer visible."With a sensitive issue like this, for an NAACP president to post that - it's not a good thing," said former Norfolk NAACP President Bob Rawls.Logan and Rawls said Breaux should resign his position.Members of the branch's executive committee said they have no plans to seek his removal.Breaux, the youngest president in the branch's history, did not return phone calls seeking comment. He became president in January.
Call me an optimist, and I realize that it’s not much, but I can be persuaded – if more evidence is presented – that a new generation, one that could be Barack Obama’s son if he had one, could be the one that eventually gets us over the racial divide.
Of course the people who benefit from the race hustle are furious.
There's this huge gap between the picture of Trayvon as 14 (the MSM's go-to picture) and his death at 17. One commenter fills the gap.
After assaulting a bus driver with a "sucker punch" to the face, Saint Treysgon [sic} was busted at his Miami high school with burglar tools/stolen women's jewelry pot residue which got him suspended for the third time and sent to meet a Twin Lakes Watch Captain in Sanford who he also assaulted.
