Tristan Breaux, 25, was sworn in as president of the Norfolk NAACP in January. He is the youngest president in the branch’s history, but members of the organization are calling for him to step down.
“He obviously does not have the maturity when to speak and when not to speak,” Riddick added.
In other words he thought for himself, and dared question the constant race baiting the NAACP has devolved into.
The controversy started Friday morning. Breaux’s posted a comment on his personal Facebook page about the George Zimmerman trial. The remark quickly spread.
“My initial reaction was that it wasn’t true, that somebody had gone on his Facebook and had planted this,” Riddick said. “I just couldn’t imagine the president of the Norfolk branch of the NAACP making a statement like that.”
“I wonder why it is that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim,” Breaux asked in the Facebook post, referring to Trayvon Martin.
“I think this should be tried in the courtroom and not on social media,” said former Norfolk NAACP President Bob Rawls.
What? You mean allow the justice system to work? Without just lynching Zimmerman, even if he is not guilty? Blasphemy!
Rawls says he is worried how the statement reflects on fellow members.
“If he had been talking to another person or two or three people and voiced his personal opinion that’s different,” Rawls added. “When you put it on social media so somebody in Florida, California, Oregon or New York is reading, this, that is wrong.”
In other words, other Black people might read the comments and THINK, the NAACP cannot have that, Black people thinking? Why that would cripple the NAACP’s Eternal Victimhood Campaign!
The post went on to ask if people are blinded to why Trayvon was staying with his dad and why he wasn’t at home at at time of the shooting.
WAVY.com made several attempts to get in touch with Breaux through calls and texts, but he never responded. Local members who voted him into office are now hoping national NAACP members will take him out.
“I think that the national office should come into this,” Riddick said. “It would be an effort to silence this fellow. I don’t know how recall process works, but I think they should recall him.”
Pretty easy to see what this is all about isn’t it? The NAACP remains relevant by fooling Black America into believing that racism is rampant, and that everything in their lives revolves around their skin color. If those things change, why the leadership of the NAACP might have to get real jobs, cannot have that can they?
