Christopher Smitherman,Cincinnati NAACP silent: TRAYVON MARTIN CASE

Justice “Just-us” Blog
On Monday NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, told attendees at the NAACP convention in Orlando, Florida that George Zimmerman’s acquittal brought him to tears.
Jealous tears will plummet into the river with millions of other people that felt the sting of injustice with Zimmerman’s acquittal.
The tearful will gather this Saturday as demonstrations are planned in more than 100 cities
Rev. Al Sharpton of the National Action Network has called for a “Justice for Trayvon National Day of Action.”  Jealous and other civil rights leaders are calling on concerned citizens to attend this rally.
The Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the National Action network is busy getting details out to Cincinnatians and thousands are expected to attend this rally.
Meanwhile the oldest Civil Rights organization in Cincinnati and the country for that matter has been silent.  The local chapter’s silence is as deadly as George Zimmerman’s bullet.
We will continue at this blog to hold NAACP president Christopher Smitherman and VP Jim Clingman accountable. If they want to be silent on civil rights issues then they should unchain the chapter. We will also hold absent Cincinnati Council candidates and incumbents accountable should they choose not to attend this rally.
