HBCU band given a great opportunity to play at Trump’s inauguration, this angers ridiculous people…

No good deed goes unpunished…

NAACP is mad

The Rev. Hugh Morris, president of the Talladega County Chapter of the NAACP, is asking more people to add their voices to those opposing the Talladega College Marching Tornadoes participation in the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

Morris was quick to say he was making his appeal as an individual at this point, and that the NAACP had not taken an official position. The college itself has not commented on the band’s participation, and it would be too early for the organization to comment without knowing details of the college’s stance.

“I am sure (Talladega College President) Dr. (Billy) Hawkins is an intelligent man, and he has his reasons,” Morris said. “… I was getting bombarded with calls and emails from Talladega College alumnae and other people affiliated with the college. They all wanted to know what the NAACP was doing.

“Myself, as a human being, I am opposed to the band participating in the inauguration because of the things that Donald Trump has done and said in the past. I am sure the college has its reasons.

“Talladega College is a little school, and the exposure would be good for them. But whether they go or not, it won’t harm the inauguration. It will still go on. So, I don’t know their reasons, but I do know when you have other people’s futures in your hands, you have to think differently.”

These are the same people that were mad President Obama invited the Azalea Trail Maids

The latest tempest in a teapot about the Inaugural parade, is about ball gowns, and the young ladies from Mobile Alabama who wear them; the Azalea Trail Maids.

Alabama NAACP criticizes use of Trail Maids in Inaugural Parade

Montgomery, Ala. (WSFA) —  They’re part of a long standing tradition that will soon become a part of Presidential history.

The head of the Alabama NAACP, however, wants Mobile’s Azalea Trail Maids to stay home on Inauguration Day, claiming the group reminds him of slavery. “These are not just regular costumes.  These are the costumes that remind someone of the plantation in Gone with the Wind,” Edward Vaughn said in a phone interview.

This stuff is absurd and phony.
