State NAACP President Barred From Wake School Property

Four protesters, including the president of the state NAACP, Rev. William Barber, have been barred from being on Wake County school property after being arrested for disrupting a school board meeting last month.

The Raleigh News & Observer reports school officials warned the four in a letter they would face legal action if they appeared on school property.

The protesters are upset that the school board majority eliminated the socioeconomic diversity policy.

    I'm a black male and I can't stand the NAACP or this trouble maker Rev. Barber. He and the NAACP are what we blacks "Don't" need.

    GREAT!!! It's about time someone stand up 4 their rights against this man instead of worrying what everyone will say. The board has rights as well.... Great job Wake County!!

    This big wannabe bully needs to get a life, a real job and stop taking from the ones he claims to help. And the media needs to stop reporting any of the useless activities he brings attention to. Ignore him !

    The great Rev. Barber is nothing but a "wannabesomebody" from the backroads of Pineywoods in Martin County. He's an agitator, raised by agitators, and has associated himself with even more agitators (NAACP). His sole purpose in life is to "milk" the black community and make sure they "don't forget" they are of the black race instead of the human race. An Oxygen Thief if there ever was one. In this day and time, you are only a minority if you choose to be, not by social placement.

    I'm just going to say this...WE all need to be working together NOT against one another, which is what NAACP does. It's main purpose is to DIVIDE. Right now as a Nation we really need to stand together. We have more pressing problems than race to attend to. Race relations should be the LAST thing we should be fighting about right now.

    Alrighty then; he and his entourage are barred from stepping onto the school property now. That's it. Take a break and go enjoy your own lives. The day is passing you by. It's just a comment room, for cryin' out loud.

    To rl: You really need to stop whinning! I am white and I can tell you no one ever gave me or my parents,my grandparents, great grandparents anything. We never had land or the mule. I was married with 2 children and my husband made $7 an hour to take care of a family of four. I went to Nursing School and worked part time at our local pizza place and I might add with no help from anyone. I did not qualify for a pell grant due to the fact that my husband worked.It was very hard but we did prevail. We did so because I wasn't sitting around waiting for someone to take care of me and I chose to better myself for the sake of my family.There is no excuse for for anyone not to take advantage of the educational options out there today.Pell grants are offered to the poor but what is happening is so many are signing up for college getting the check and dropping out.We rely on loans to pay for our childrens college because we get nothing.Do yourself a favor Get Educated!

    The NAACP has run it's course in the United States as there isn't a sole alive who has ever seen a slave in America. Don't disband though as the work has not been completed, but needs to move it's headquarters to countries who still have actual African slaves to help, like Africa, Nigeria, Sudan. Muslims consider it their right to have slaves still in these countries. Why not consider helping those who can not help themselves? America has programs in place already to help all of America, the illegals and the citizens. Africa sold millions of its own and the slavetrade still goes on. The English were wrong to buy slaves from Africa and many Americans, white and black, lost their lives to end the inhumanity. When will you help your people who really need you now? Don't worry - I'm certain you won't have to pay taxes there either.
