NAACP Backs Down

Blogger and Project 21 member Michael King is reporting on his Ramblings’ Journal blog that NAACP CEO Kweisi Mfume is going to “apologize personally” for an incident in which the national NAACP reportedly pressured the Ohio NAACP to rescind a speaking invitation to U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige.

Mfume denies, however, that the national NAACP played any role in the matter.

Project 21 condemned the snub of Paige on Friday.

We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
