Ex-NAACP Chicago Exec Says Group Has Become Irrelevant, 'An Arm For The Democratic Party'

January 10, 2013 - 12:39 PM

Former NAACP Chicago chapter President David Lowery says the activist group has become irrelevant because it's now more concerned with politics than public service.

Lowery, who says he was driven out of the organization after he refused to endorse President Barack Obama in his bid for re-election, tells MRCTV that today's NAACP is "not relevant to the grassroots Black Americans, or Middle Class."

He suggested that the organization is exploiting blacks to advance a political agenda:

"It has become an arm for the Democratic Party to be able to use black people and use the black politicians to continue the ignorance of voting about candidates." Black voters need to learn about the policies of all parties, Lowery said.
