NAACP Chair Addresses Broad Agenda At Confab

EDITOR'S NOTE: We will have a live webcast of the NAACP Convention starting tomorrow at 9:30 AM PST

LOS ANGELES -Roslyn M. Brock, chairwoman of the NAACP, took on recent voting, the "tea party" and the nation’s troubled economic, health and education systems in her keynote address Sunday at the group’s 102nd annual convention in Los Angeles.
“After decades of progress to open up access and make it easier for all Americans to vote, state legislatures in Wisconsin, Ohio, Kansas and Florida are putting into place a web of suppressive and restrictive laws to make it harder, if not impossible, for many to vote,” Brock said, according to a transcript of the address provided by the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People.
“We must redouble our efforts to reverse this pernicious trend,” she said.

Brock later said that “the country is on the precipice of economic collapse” and targeted tea party Republicans for insisting on cutting government spending “to the bone” without raising taxes on wealthy Americans.

Local sources report the running theme throughout Brock’s speech was “courage must not skip this generation,” a theme she introduced by describing a scene from the book-turned-film “The Help” and referencing Aristotle.

At the end of the talk, she demanded:

“This generation who sits in the board room when our parents sat in the mailroom;

This generation -– who sleeps in HOTEL suites when our parents merely swept the streets!

This generation who drives Bentleys, Porsches, Mercedes and Jags, when their parents had nothing but filthy rags.

Courage will not skip this generation!”
