NAACP fires its president, will embrace Black Lives Matter

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the 109 year old civil rights organization, will not renew the contract of its president, Cornell Brooks, and will “recast” its mission by conducting “a systemwide and strategic revisioning process that will ensure that the NAACP can address these 21st century challenges.”

Reading between the lines isn’t difficult; the NAACP will become more like Black Lives Matter and less like a mainstream organization dedicated to advancing the economic interests of blacks.
