This mindset is a universally accepted assumption, a presumption, a given if you will, that blacks are always discriminated against by whites in our society, and that society must do something, everything it can, to remedy this discrimination. Now, if the discussion simply ended here, with doing away with discrimination against blacks, there would be no problem. There would be no need for this book. Doing away with all discrimination should be the goal of society. But the problem which this book discusses, is that the application of, or the living out of this politically-correct mindset in society has been taken to an extreme from which we may never return.
No charges were filed. My question is—why wasn’t that enough? Why was there a need to re-investigate the matter simply because the NAACP was crying foul? And why was all of this so important that it warranted its own story in the daily newspaper? The fact of the matter is the NAACP puts its nose in the criminal justice system all the time, on behalf of blacks who they feel have been victims of crimes by whites that are either not prosecuted or not prosecuted severely enough (see the chapter herein on hate crimes) or where the blacks must surely be the victims of discrimination by white prosecutors who are being too tough in charging them as perpetrators of crimes.
But here was the head of the NAACP having his say on national television about the events in Ferguson. Pandering for sure! But the mere presence of, and almost always racial practices of the NAACP in society, and even their immense power isn’t the only problem. It’s only a part of the problem. The rest of the problem involves the fact that there isn’t a National Association for the Advancement of WHITE People, or NAAWP. In describing earlier how President George W. Bush had to find the leader of the NAACP when he was about to make one of his State of the Union addresses in order for a handshake, you will note I didn’t describe how he also sought out the leader of the NAAWP.
