The organization was of great importance in its day, but there is a strong argument to be made it should no longer exist
Do I have a right to say such a thing? Well, I was a civil rights worker in the South in the sixties, lost the full use of my finger there, went on to be a significant financial supporter of the Black Panther breakfast program in the seventies…. Is that enough?
No, asshole, it is not. I suspect Simon's pal Goodman (and Chaney and Schwerner, too) would be appalled at the way this aging wanker proudly cites his 30-second involvement in the Civil Rights Movement every fucking chance he gets, time and again -- and to advocate abolishing the NAACP, no less!
