Now can we accuse the NAACCP of their own racism?
Yesterday, at a Martin Luther King Jr. ceremony in Columbia, Sorth Carolina, the one-time civil rights group covered up a statue of George Washington (FreeNorthCarolina, h/t Sean Casey).
The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a "box" to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.Remember that the NAACCP in North Carolina defended the alleged "rapist" in the Duke Lacrosse case, and continued defending her when it was revealed she made the rape up. Another NAACCP chapter defended dog killer Michael Vick.
