Do me a favor. Go to Google and Google "NAACP Columbus Ohio".
You will see a location and also a phone number.
Call that number!
After you call that phone number, you realize a few things. For one, AT&T has a terrific message for when your unable to pay your bill.
The next is, what in the world is going on with the NAACP in Columbus, Ohio?
Ronda W. Barber, editor with OhioMBE, a publication printed bi-weekly advocating, informing, and promoting small and minority owned businesses, recently wrote an article about her experience with the NAACP.
"Columbus didn't have its scheduled 2014 election," she wrote, "It appears the old tainted leadership whose terms have expired gangstered the branch and are now sending out a newsletter reporting on its activities. So much for the voice of the people and democracy in action."
In 2015, with all of the positive and, unfortunate, events in the city, the NAACP should have a presence. If anything, the largest ever! This is a letdown to all of the young men and women of color in the city who want to be involved with the NAACP. We are reminded of this everyday our local chapter continues to operate in the custom they are setting.
I speak for many when I say that it is time for the National Chapter of the NAACP to step in and assist in Columbus, as well as Cleveland and Cincinnati. It is time that we put people who look forward to the responsibility in power, as opposed to those who just value the title.
Stay involved! Support local businesses!
