Truest statement of the week II

What Harris-Perry never mentions is that the NAACP and BYP 100 share at least one thing in common. Both outfits funded by millions, in the case of the NAACP, and hundreds of thousands in the case of BYP 100 dollars from corporate one-percenters. Truth be told, the beef Harris-Perry and BYP 100 have against the NAACP is not about any political issues affecting the black masses. She’s just with the new crew, and NAACP is the old crew which Harris-Perry and others like BYP 100 would like to replace as the official spokesnegroes of Black America, and the prime recipient of one-percenter dollars that come with that recognition.
