why does the NAACP waist

why does the NAACP waist time, energy, money on meaningless events like this? do you really need another excuse to eat, and bolster your egos? why don't you people do some real work and make a difference in the community, instead of having another party? the organization is nothing more than a social club.

It appears the NAACP wants to rest on its laurels. The job is far from over, get back to work and finish the job started by men like Martin Luther King.

Are they waisting time or wasting time? At any rate mpowel21 needs a refresher course in Grammar and correct usage and spelling. It would seem all the NAACP does is "waste" time, not "waist".

I'd have a lot more respect

I'd have a lot more respect for the NAACP if it spent that time working to prevent the terrible black dropout rate that occurs todaym than to celebrate something that happened 55 years ago.

What good does integrated schools do for dropouts?

Ciorgi - There are alot of things the NAACP could focus on but they refuse to address many of the issues in the black community especially those that are self-induced. Personal responsibility is their kryptonite.

I guess the question is:
Unpublished

I guess the question is: Since forced busing was ordered in Richmond County schools, has the education of our children gotten better or worse, and has the drop-out rate better or worse?
