The NAACP Should Disband If This Is All They Have To Complain About

It’s not a secret that the once great NAACP has become little more than a generally useless left-wing organization that works to gin up and amplify racial strife for fun, profit, and political rewards.

Unfortunately for the NAACP, America’s not a racist country any more, so it often has to REALLY stretch to find things to complain about. Here’s a great example of what I’m talking about,

Metro Police issued 92 traffic-related citations across the Las Vegas Valley on Monday as part of an annual effort to boost safety near schools. But the operation prompted a complaint by the NAACP.

The NAACP alleged that jaywalking tickets handed out to parents near Kermit R. Booker Sr. Empowerment Elementary School unfairly penalized people who live in a low-income area.

NAACP officials, who are demanding the tickets be dismissed, said in a statement that “the actions of Metro officers have tainted the memory of this day for many parents and children at Booker.”

Metro, however, said it is simply targeting schools that have a history of traffic-related problems.

“Police work does not have ethnic parameters; it does not have income parameters,” Lt. John Faulis of Metro’s traffic bureau said. “It’s what is safest for this city and our community, and that is it.”

Faulis said officers issued 14 jaywalking tickets Monday, including four near Booker, along Martin Luther King Boulevard in west Las Vegas. A motorist near Booker also was cited for failure to yield and driving without a license, police said.

“With the start of school, one of our No. 1 priorities in the traffic bureau is to keep kids safe,” Faulis said. “People all over the summer, they’re used to driving a little bit faster and not having to pay attention to school zones.”

But Richard Boulware, chairperson of NAACP’s legal redress committee, said police should have notified school officials about the enforcement so they could have warned parents, he said.

Plus, Boulware said the symbolism of minority children witnessing police giving their parents tickets on the first day of school works against efforts to create a “strong relationship between the minority community and the police department.”

Thank goodness the NACCP? Who else would stand up to this obviously racist jaywalking sting….wait, what did I just say?
