North Carolina NAACP Need a New Vision
Did I say a new vision? I mean the NC NAACP State Conference of Branches needs a VISION. I have not been pleased with the leadership of the NAACP for many years and it appears that some others have not also. I know that most people I talk to say the NAACP is not doing anything. How can we change that? We can start with new leadership in October.
North Carolina State Conference of Branches President Melvin (Skip) Alston has a cloud of controversy surrounding him from his seat on the Guilford County Commissioners to the PayDay Lending piece.
Sources have told TPA that Skip has been calling voting members making promises telling them if they would support him in the upcoming election in October what he would do for them. It never seems to amaze me how some black folks will continue to allow certain black folks to hold them right where they are in neutral and not moving forward nor backwards but at a standstill. I know there are many of Skip followers who will support him knowing that he has never called them before now and that he has no vision. We all know what happens due to the lack of vision, people perish. It is sad that some would rather perish than to entertain change.
Sources say that Rev. William Barber Pastor of Greenleaf Baptist Church in Goldsboro is going to challenge Skip. I have been knowing Rev. Barber for many, many years and I know he will rock the boat. Don't know how it works but it would be interesting to know that the State Conference of Branches would be located in Goldsboro NC.
I will be following the October election closely because I am ready for change, what about you?
