LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28, 2013 /Christian Newswire
/ -- February 1, 2013, will mark the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization's 44th Image Awards Show to honor cultural and entertainment luminaries presenting the best face of black Americans.
However, this year a number of black groups, churches and community activists along with the National Black Prolife Coalition (NBPLC) will be protesting the event due to the failure of the civil rights organization to represent the best interests of the community. The issues range from abortion, traditional marriage, destruction of the black family and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black men. Protesters from across the nation will assemble in Los Angeles to declare that the NAACP has betrayed the black community.
"The NAACP is out of touch with the black community," said Rev. Edward Pinkney, President of Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO), "...and supports population control as set forth by Planned Parenthood which has targeted black people."
Dr. Johnny Hunter, National Director of Life Education And Resource Network (LEARN), says, "Racist elitists no longer need the Ku Klux Klan to control blacks; they have Planned Parenthood. And Planned Parenthood has the NAACP on a leash." The founder of the northeast division of LEARN, Pastor Clenard Childress states, "The NAACP must quit endorsing destructive and unfruitful behavior."
"The NAACP's departure from the wisdom and life affirming principles of the Bible is very alarming, and must be stopped for the safety, security, and future of our children," said Dr. Alveda King, Guardian of the King Family Legacy.
"The only word that can define the gross negligence of the NAACP is 'betrayal.' They have abandoned our community's morality, our economic and educational needs for thirty pieces of silver," said Pastor Stephen E. Broden of Dallas, Texas. "They are drunk with the wine of the world and the power elite and their eugenic agenda against black folk."
