NAACP Tells Black Student-Athletes to Change Minds on Florida Colleges After DEI Prohibition

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) basically just admitted that they don’t think black people can earn their way to success, it needs to be given to them through social justice programs or government and corporate handouts.

Apparently, the organization has sent correspondence to the head of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson addressed concerns to NCAA president Charlie Baker about the state of Florida’s prohibition of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs.

“This is not about politics,” Johnson wrote. “It's about the protection of our community, the progression of our culture, and most of all, it's about your education, and your future.”

So is Johnson saying that he believes the black community needs programs, like DEI, in order to succeed, instead of relying on their God-given ability? That doesn’t sound like someone who wants people within his community to ‘Lift every voice…’

Subsequently, the NAACP is asking black students who have committed to “public colleges and universities in the state of Florida” to change their decisions to attend those schools.

According to ESPN, Johnson said the following in a statement:

“Diversity, equity, and inclusion are paramount to ensuring equitable and effective educational outcomes. The value Black and other college athletes bring to large universities is unmatched. If these institutions are unable to completely invest in those athletes, it's time they take their talents elsewhere.”

The ironic part of all this is the NAACP’s motto of “Leading the Fight to End Racial Inequality.” They’ve never really wanted that and would never admit it’s actually a reality, because if they did, there would be no reason for their organization to exist. And if there’s no “cause,” there’s no money coming in.

Also, if they really wanted to “end racial inequality,” they wouldn’t rely on ideas like equity, since equity means equal outcomes, whereas equality means equal opportunity.

The only people really keeping the black community down are organizations like the NAACP.
