"NAACP GIVE Merck Award after killing 60,000 people! It is all about the Money......"
message from Rev Edward Pinkney [bhbanco.org]:
What would you say if you knew someone had killed 60,000 people? Would you give them an award? Would you call it a felony or Murder?
If you total up the value of all those lives in criminal court,what would you say they are worth? Billions? trillions? How about a measly $321 million in exchange for a guilty plea to a misdemeanor?
When you consider that this involves the second largest drug maker in the U.S. Merck and his deadly drug Vioxx, then you will probably agree that a misdemeanor and $321 million dollars fine amounts to nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
Business analysts were estimating a $25 billion dollars judgment when the drug was taken off the market, but even when combined with the $4.85 in payouts to patient who suffered heart attacks and stokes and did not died, the final bill is nowhere close to original estimates of the damage.
The plea agreement Merck recently made with a federal court in Boston on April 19, after being charged with illegal promotion of Vioxx for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, before it was approved for that use.
The sad tale brings up memories of what I tried to warn readers said Dr. Mercola in about 1999, when I showed that people talking this drug were at a massively increased risk of dying from heart disease and stoke. It is a tragic that Vioxx was removed only after 60,000 died.
It is even more tragic that a court would Merck's illegal promotion of the drug a misdemeanor rather than a felony ,since this tactic clearly exposed far more people to the dangarous drug that it would have other wise. Adding insult to injury, instead of the billions that Merck anticipated paying out. it got away with such a paltry sum. Particularly galling is the fact that these deaths could have been so easily avoided, were not for the deceptive maneuving of Merck, who stood to profit handsomely from the success of the drug said Dr. Mercola.
The NAACP honored Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman of the Board , chief executive officer and President Merck, Who is responsible for the drug Vioxx that have killed 60,000 and thousands and thousands more people's, who has suffered heart attacks and stokes.
We must hold the NAACP accountable. We believe the NAACP is out of touch with the community and a sell out. We are asking Ben Jealous to resign and allow the members to elect the the new President. We must stop giving the NAACP a free pass.
We will be in Los Angles at the NAACP Image Awards February 1, 2013 at Shriner Auditorium
665 W Jefferson at 2pm to protest.
On Saturday February 2,2013 Rev Pinkney will be speaking at MERCADO La Paloma, 3655 S. Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90007. For more information contact Rev Edward Pinkney [269-925-0001]
2012-12-13 "Local NAACP Leader Wants Group’s Non-Profit Status Revoked" from "CBS news"
CHICAGO (CBS) — When the president of the Chicago South Suburban Branch of the NAACP said he wasn’t supporting President Obama, he was first threatened and then suspended.
Now, he’s asking the IRS to revoke the non-profit status of the civil rights organization, saying it’s lost its way.
David Lowery Jr. is pushing back against a mindset that if you’re black you vote for Democrats.
Lowery went on his internet radio show and said neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney would do anything to help the ills of the black community.
LISTEN: WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser Reports
He was first threatened and then suspended. Now, he’s asking the IRS to revoke the non-profit status of the civil rights organization.
Lowery is becoming something of a nightmare for the NAACP, turning on the organization by, as he says, “telling the truth.”
“The NAACP should stay focused on human and civil rights,” he says, “as opposed to being a political advocacy arm for the Democratic party.”
He was asked if he thinks the group is violating federal law.
“Yes, non-profits cannot be partisan or support any political candidates, one way or the other,” he said.
He said he has emails from NAACP national leaders, asking him and other NAACP local leaders to get out the vote for the Democratic Party.
“I’ve been able to see how the NAACP is being used by the Democratic Party to go out and get votes, to deliver messages–just like the one, ‘It’s a black thing’–to give out literature. All those things that a non-profit should not be doing, they are doing that, let’s be real.”
Lowery says he believes he was threatened during a phone conversation with Louis Raymond, the Illinois Political Director for Obama For America, before the election.
Lowery says he does not personally support the president because Obama is not addressing issues important to the black community.
He said the same about Romney. He says Raymond called and told him, “You know what, I know everything about you.” Lowery says Raymond added, “We’ve been watching you and since you don’t support Obama we’ll deal with you.”
Then Lowery was suspended by the NAACP. He says, it was because he told people to think for themselves. The NAACP says in the suspension letter, he violated a cease and desist order from the NAACP and that Lowery was being partisan.
“There used to be fear” in the NAACP name,” Lowery says. Now, he says, it’s more a social club with a partisan bent.
“We have gotten away from what freedom fighting is,” he said.....
Lowery started a petition at change.org asking that the IRS revoke the NAACP’s non-profit status.
Lowery’s suspension letter said he engaged in partisan activity.
He insists, as an independent, he only told people to think for themselves.
“It’s a sad day in a national organization like the NAACP when one of their presidents has to step up and say, you know what, we’re not doing the right thing and we need to be held accountable for the actions that we are not taking in the community, as well as being partisan toward the Democratic Party.”
“I’m really trying to let the NAACP know, we need to step up in the black community. We’re suffering out here. Civil rights are dying. Black people are last on everything and the NAACP was in the forefront back in the day.
“I’m not bullying them. I’m really challenging them to step up to the plate and be the force in the black community that they can be again.”
WBBM Newsradio asked for comment from leaders of the NAACP but those phone calls and emails went unanswered.
2012-12-01 "NAACP FACING SHARP MEMBERSHIP DECLINE DUE TO CORRUPTION AND REVERSE RACISM"
message from Rev Edward Pinkney [bhbanco.org]:
SINCE SEPTEMBER 2012, APPROXIMATELY 3,000 NAACP MEMBERS HAVE SET THE torch to their MEMBERSHIP CARDS BECAUSE THERE IS A SENSE THAT THE NATIONAL LEADERSHIP IS CORRUPT, COWARDLY, AND HAS DEVIATED FROM ITS original MISSION of promoting civil rights by SUPPORTING AMORALITY AND CORPORATIONS THAT ABUSE ALL AMERICANS. THE CARD-BURNING CAMPAIGN STARTED BY REV. EDWARD PINKNEY OF BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN HAS SPREAD rapidly across THE NATION. HUNDREDS OF FORMERLY LOYAL NAACP MEMBERS are DISGUSTED BY FRAUD, THE REFUSAL OF THE ORGANIZATION TO COMBAT POLICE BRUTALITY, LYNCHINGS, AND SYSTEMATIC STRUCTURAL RACISM BY CORPORATIONS THAT PASS THE NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CASH UNDER THE TABLE.
REV. PINKNEY AND HIS BREAKAWAY SUPPORTERS ESTIMATE THAT EACH MONTH NEARLY ONE THOUSAND PERSONS DESTROY THEIR MEMBERSHIP CARDS AND BELIEVE that BY DECEMBER 2013 OVER 15% OF THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE ORGANIZATION IS LIKELY TO leave THE NATION'S FORMERLY MOST RESPECTED CIVIL RIGHTS GROUP. AMONG THE ISSUES THAT ANGER THE LEGIONS OF PEOPLE LEAVING THE NAACP are: THE SUPPORT FOR SAME SEX MARRIAGE, THE ODD ALLIANCE WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF AMERICA (WHICH IS SEEN AS AIDING THE GENOCIDE OF BLACKS), SUPPORT FOR MONSANTO'S GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD BALLOT INITIATIVE IN CALIFORNIA, THE FAILURE TO SUPPORT LOCAL CHAPTERS IN PROTECTing COMMUNITIES FROM RACIAL ATTACKS, POLICE BRUTALITY, AND MASS INCARCERATION, AND THE widespread RUMORS OF NATIONAL OFFICIALS TAKING CASH FROM COMPANIES THAT PRACTICE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION WHILE TAKING MEMBERSHIPS FOR GRANTED AND GIVING NOTHING IN RETURN.
DISGUSTED AMERICANS OF ALL WALKS OF LIFE ARE PREPARING A 10,000 PERSON MARCH AGAINST THE CORRUPTION AND BETRAYAL OF AMERICAN VALUES BY THE NAACP BY protesting THE CIVIL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION'S IMAGE AWARDS ON FEBRUARY 1, 2013. TO MANY, THE IMAGE AWARDS REPRESENTS THE ELITIST AND OUT-OF-TOUCH MINDSET OF THE ORGANIZATION'S LEADERSHIP. THE IMAGE AWARDS IS an event NOTORIOUS FOR GIVING HONORS TO ARTISTS AND PERFORMERS THAT OFTEN INSULT THE CHARACTER AND HISTORY OF AFRICAN AMERICANS, AND IT REPRESENTS A LARGE WASTE OF MONEY WHILE LOCAL CHAPTERS ARE FLEECED FOR A gaudy PARTY FOR PEOPLE WHO DO NOT SERVICE THE INTERESTS OF THEIR MEMBERS. Its impact is nothing less than reverse racism at a time when racism and poverty are growing across America.

2012-12-10 message to the Atlanta NAACP: "How did they find out about us?"
message from Rev Edward Pinkney [bhbanco.org]:
At the recent meeting of the Atlanta NAACP Executive Committee, branch leaders were more concerned about how they were exposed than dealing with the serious issues that face the branch, such as:
>> Moving forward with having a branch election on December 17, which may be illegal due to the branch owing the NAACP at least $65,000 in assessments to the National NAACP for much of the past decade. The NAACP generally prohibits local branches that are delinquent in national assessments from holding local chapter elections. Branch leaders couldn't answer as to how members would be notified of the election nor why an exception is being made for the Atlanta Branch.
>> A protégé of Atlanta NAACP Branch president Rev. R.L. White sits on the local Executive Committee while being a paid staff person with the National NAACP Chairman's Office and also serving as a co-chair of the local freedom fund dinner, couldn't answer detailed questions about the recent freedom fund banquet or how much money was raised. This is a serious conflict of interest.
>> The branch treasurer has been MIA for much of the year and a result, there has been no accurate financial reports in several months and there's several reports that indicate that the branch can't seem to pay its bills.
>> Rev. R. L. White is running for his ninth two-year term as head of the Atlanta branch, and membership of the branch is now well below 1,000 members for the first time in at least 40 years. The Atlanta NAACP is a nothing but a mere shadow of its former self and other NAACP branches throughout the country have been reorganized and officers shown the door for far less culpable actions. NAACP members deserves transparency and accountability, and its clear its not happening here and in other communities such as Benton Harbor, Michigan as well.
In the early 20th Century, the NAACP was made up of selfless men and women who worked to bring Americans of color into the American Way of Life. Now, 100 years later, the NAACP sadly is now made up of selfish sell-outs and pimps more concerned with lining their pockets and finding other ways to personally benefit than fighting for civil rights. So instead of focusing on how the ugly details finally got out, how about showing some real leadership for a change??
Burn Baby Burn!!
"OUR FOLK ARE DYING!!!!"
message from Rev Edward Pinkney [bhbanco.org]:
Brothers and Sisters,Recently Hazel Dukes NYS NAACP PRES.(so called Doctor) Dukes has come out to condemn Mayor Bloomberg for raising the cry about what soft drinks are doing to the people. Coca Cola,Pepsi Cola and those soft drinks with High Fructose and other ingredients seem to be addictive to some of us.
When i was in the VA hospital patients would walk around with large 40 ounce of Coke all day long. i felt the medications were making patients drink large quantities of the liquid because it seemed to be addictive.
In particularly our folk our obese and dying of diabetes. Dukes in her statement in the Huffington Post said her NAACP Project may help solve the problem of obesity and diabetes thru holistic education. The NAACP Project H.E.L.P. was one way to help fight the problem.
Hazel Dukes is the same NAACP leader that was listed as part of the Black Lobbyist group for the Tobacco industry along with members of the Black Congressional Caucus (RANGEL, TOWNES)who enriched themselves with thousands of dollars back in the 90's before the Cancer Sticks were put in check. Many of our Black Folk as well as others died from smoking.
Project H.E.L.P. is now part of the NAACP national campaign against diabetes, obesity, etc . THIS PROJECT IS SPONSORED AND FUNDED BY THE COCA COLA FOUNDATION.
Check out the districts getting the Duckets. When will Black person take a stand against the NAACP. The NAACP is out of touch with our community and nothing but a sellout to the Corporations.
SELL OUT, SELL OUT, SELL OUT! We can no longer give the NAACP a free pass because the NAACP is called a black organization. We must hold the NAACP accountable for their actions and inactions.
We will boycott and protest the NAACP Image Awards on February 1 , 2013 in Los Angeles California 665 W J efferson Shiner Auditorium beginning 1pm. New Way New Day! Several Pastors, Ministers and
Organizations will be joining.
Whirlpool Corporation took over the NAACP in Benton Harbor, Michigan with money and placed their NAACP members on the school board and now we have a Whirlpool Corporation control school board and NAACP members working together to destroy our School system and community.

Ben Jealous was chosen to be NAACP president in 2008 only after long and contentious debate, and other finalists were prevented from speaking.
2008-05-17 "35-year-old chosen to lead NAACP" from "CNN"
(CNN) -- The NAACP has chosen Ben Jealous as its new president after a contentious debate that lasted long into the night, members of its board of directors said Saturday.
Jealous, 35, will be the youngest president in the NAACP's 99-year history, The Associated Press reported.
When the 34-21 vote was announced, "no one clapped or celebrated," one board member said after the meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Jealous was the only finalist presented by the search committee to the full board for consideration. Some board members wanted to hear from two others whom the search committee identified as finalists, but Jealous' supporters prevented it, sources said.
Jealous steps into a challenging role.
"There are a small number of groups to whom all black people in this country owe a debt of gratitude, and the NAACP is one of them," Jealous told AP before the vote. "There is work that is undone ... the need continues and our children continue to be at great risk in this country."
Sources said Jealous, a former newspaper editor and director of an Amnesty International division, was the only finalist for the post of president, vacant for more than a year. He was the primary choice of board Chairman Julian Bond, sources said.
He replaces Bruce Gordon, a retired Verizon executive who quit in March 2007, citing friction with Bond and the group's 64-member board. Gordon said he was also unhappy with the direction of the NAACP, the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization.
Jealous is president of the California-based Rosenberg Foundation, and before that he directed the U.S. human rights program for Amnesty International.
In the mid-1990s, Jealous was the managing editor of the Jackson Advocate, the oldest black newspaper in Mississippi. He was later the executive director of the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a federation of more than 200 black community papers.
Jealous began his career as an organizer with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund,working on health care issues, the NAACP said.
Jealous, a native of California, is a graduate of Columbia University and Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar, the NAACP said.
He told AP that many in his generation have a false sense of progress in racial equality. "Those of us who are 45 and younger were told, 'The struggle has been won. Go out and flourish. Don't worry about the movement,"' he told AP. Mr Ben Jealous have not worried
about the movement, He is out touch with the community and the people
Rev. Pinkney's comments:
Ben Jealous has unfortunately tarnished the already fragile reputation of the NAACP by allowing his work for the US president and the corporations to override the interest of the African-American people. The NAACP is a sell-out and out of touch with the black community.
