Coons Of The Day: NAACP Has A Change Of Heart About Haley Barbour After The Release Of Imprisoned Sisters

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, Congratulations, Coon of The Day

The NAACP is some of the most fickle, wishy-washy, folks in the world when it comes to who they support and why…

A week ago, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour had drawn the ire of the NAACP for insensitive comments about growing up during the 1960s civil rights era.

Today, the potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate is being hailed by the nation’s oldest civil rights group as a “shining example” of a governor.

Why the change? Barbour on Wednesday decided to free two sisters who have been imprisoned on life sentences since 1994 on armed robbery charges. The plight of Jamie and Gladys Scott had long been championed by the NAACP. Gladys Scott was released on the condition that she donate a kidney to her 38-year-old sister, who requires daily dialysis.

In a statement, Barbour said, “The Mississippi Department of Corrections believes the sisters no longer pose a threat to society. Their incarceration is no longer necessary for public safety or rehabilitation, and Jamie Scott’s medical condition creates a substantial cost to the State of Mississippi.”

As much as we’d like to “praise” Mr. Barbour for his gracious pardon, we can’t shake the feeling that the “substantial cost to the State of Mississippi” is the real reason why the Scott sisters were freed. In any event, congrats ladies, we showl is glad dat de white man had camed to save ya’ll…*SUPER side-eye*

    The naacp is kind of a racist group within itself. Why dont they stand up and rally for a white man who was beat up by a bunch of blacks/latinos/etc. I know plenty of cases where people of other races gotten away with a slap on the wrist when they beat white people to death just cause they was bored. Im just sayin. And im black&puerto rican by the way. But i appreciate everything the naacp did back in the days & today. But dont be onesided.

    WHY DIDNT HE FREE PEOPLE WHO WERE ARRESTED AND GIVEN AN HARSH PUNISHMENT FOR DEFENDING THEMSELVES OR PROTECTING THEIR FAMILIES? ITS GOOD AND ALL THAT THEY RELEASED THEM AND WHATEVER, BUT THESE TWO DUMB BROADS WENT AND ROBBED SUMONE AND HELD A GUN AT THEM…. EXTREMLY TRUMATIC. STUFF LIKE THAT STAYS WITH PEOPLE FOREVER.

    At this point the NAACP need a Ho Sit Down when was the last time that organization was effective,also show a spine you don’t hear the Jewish Defense League caving to anything, even when their in the wrong nope they fight for theirs. Look how the NAACP tossed Shirley Sherrod under the bus with the quickness, and not knowing her and her family fight to help the community. What Barbour said showed his poker face and was a disgrace. Also he could have been let those women out when it became national news months ago. Clearly this was a move to distract from them racist comments, very transparent
