Bishop Ron Allen is pissed that the California NAACP is backing the California legalization movement. Allen, apparently, has no problem with the high incarceration rates of blacks or the Jim Crow drug laws. Perhaps all the broken families in the black communities drive more people to his church?
Anyway, in this press release, Bishop Allen fails to address a single point made by the NAACP regarding its good reasons for supporting the referendum. Instead, he goes ballistic over… George Soros.
Bishop Ron Allen says, “It is time to take a closer look at how decisions are made at the California NAACP and what the contributing factors were that caused Alice Huffman to side with Proposition 19. California NAACP President Alice Huffman is selling out the very people that the NAACP has a history of protecting. She has been bought and paid for by the highest bidder, in this case it is George Soros, his Open Society Institute and the Soros Foundation Network. We know Soros is a major contributor to the NAACP and he is a primary funding source for the legalization of marijuana worldwide. With Huffman’s position on legalization, she is destroying the good work the NAACP has done for the African American people, and she is discrediting the good name of the NAACP. She has sold us out for her personal financial gain and I call for her immediate resignation. Alice Huffman, step down as the President of the California NAACP now and restore its good name.”
If Bishop Allen cares at all about African American people, it’s time for him to address the real factors that have hurt that community â€” especially the racist and destructive drug war.
