The NAACP has awakened from a nap and now comes to town, perhaps having had a dream, concerned about a flag. Seeing an opportunity, they come intent on flexing muscle, slavering on power, and bullying their way. While we in Mississippi, a state of proud hard-working wage earners, professionals, business execs, rednecks, and beloved bumpkins, like every other state in the Union, through representative government and/or popular vote, have chosen our state flag -- for the good, the bad, or the ugly.
I have no dog in this hunt as the only thing any of my kinfolk ever enslaved was shrimp, mullet, crabs, and oysters. But the power-slurping NAACP would like others to believe we’re dripping in racism, like syrup down flapjacks, bumping along like the Randy Newman-styled stereotyped rednecks from long ago -- instead of THE state having the highest number of black elected officials of any state in the Union, including an elected black mayor in our capital city of Jackson.
At any rate, you’d think a bully organization like the NAACP would have more important things to do than telling all of us, living in harmony, that we need a new flag. I’m not sure that we really need a new flag but the one we do have has never mattered one twit to the likes of Nissan, Ingalls, Yates, 25 casinos (out-of-state-owned), and any number of other small and big businesses in our fine state. Why? Maybe money speaks louder than an abstract idea.
But the NAACP wants us to think they’re truly concerned about racism in Mississippi when they themselves support racism of a different kind. A few years ago, the Guttmacher Institute, a non-profit center researching reproductive health, in its annual report revealed that while the overall abortion rate has been declining since 1974 that there is a stark racial disparity between the rates of abortions between white and black women. White women abort at the rate of 10/50,000; black women at 50/50,000.
According to the Guttmacher report nearly half of all black pregnancies end in abortion. In some localities, like New York City, over half of all abortions are performed on black women. Some blame this disparity on income inequality but the phenomenal reality is that Planned Parenthood maintains 3 out of 4 abortion centers in or near black neighborhoods, and in some areas they’re as ubiquitous as the corner Seven-Eleven.
This social anomaly, the black neighborhood marketing of abortions by Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, has been called out by a courageous man, Reverend Clenard Childress, president of the largest African American evangelical pro-life group in the country. Reverend Childress maintains on his website, blackgenocide.org that 90% of Planned Parenthood's abortion centers are in or near minority communities. Moreover, while blacks make up 12% of the population, they obtain/perform 35% of the abortions in America. Reverend Childress says this is tantamount to black genocide.
Another person in the vanguard of advancing the plight of blacks, unlike and contradistinctive to the NAACP, is Dr. Day Gardner, the first black Miss USA contestant to be selected in the Top 10 and founder and president of the National Black Pro-Life Union in Washington. She told a reporter for the Los Angeles Times that the high abortion rates for black women '' . . . doesn't have as much to do with poverty as the fact that the abortion facilities (Planned Parenthood) are there--ingrained in the neighborhoods . . . This is a silent killer among us.''
And then there’s Mr. Ryan Bomberger, the founder and chief creative officer of The Radiance Foundation, a black pro-life organization trying to advance and counter the works of the NAACP with respect to saving/advancing black lives, with Mr. Bomberger successfully defending a lawsuit by the NAACP for exercising his free speech because they didn’t like what he said about the NAACP’s pro-abortion baby-killing stance. Mr. Bomberger, an erudite black man, says the NAACP “reflects an organization that has such disdain for our actual civil rights.” He further adds, “I find it embarrassing that a civil rights organization like the NAACP would actually go so far to deny that something is protected speech.” (….much less to deny a general statewide popular vote on a flag?)
Meanwhile, the NAACP comes barging in wide-eyed over a flag which apparently matters much more to them than their babies.
The NAACP and Planned Parenthood, now having been exposed this week as clandestinely selling baby body parts, are bedfellows, stroking their mutual narcissistic and self-absorbing whims, with no real interest in advancing anything other than their self-absorbance and power over others. How about we change a flag that offends you if you’ll change your support of baby-killing that offends us. Killing one’s Posterity doesn’t advance any society regardless of its color.
The NAACP says black lives matter, but to them there’s a flag that matters much more. The NAACP says black lives matter, but not so much as when they’re in their mothers’ wombs. It’s no wonder the NAACP bristled at Mr. Bomberger’s suggestion that NAACP should stand for the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People. Indeed, it’s a dangerous time to be a black baby.
Like I said, I’m indifferent to the flag thing, and I think many blacks and whites are too, because we have way more important and bigger fish to fry, not to mention people having lives to live, bills to pay, and kids to raise. But it’s the likes of people and organizations like the NAACP, promoters and supporters as they are of baby-killing, that makes those of us in the South, with like-thinking friends everywhere, want to rise (again) and advance and support those and that which is life-giving. May God see fit to raise up more men and women like Reverend Childress, Dr. Gardner, and Mr. Bomberger.
