NAACP calling SC Gov. a race traitor.


NAACP head Ben Jealous says Nikki Haley has betrayed "people of color." He says that Haley should remove the Confederate flag to get back at the white man for the "oppression" of India.

From Examiner.com…

The NAACP, a left-wing black race lobby, is accusing South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley of betraying “people of color.”

Nikki Haley’s parents are immigrants from India. Her parents were Indian Sikhs. The so-called “warrior caste,” the Sikh are a religious minority group that traditionally make up much of the officer’s corps for the Indian military. Their members draw heavily on the Eurasian ethnic groups in northern India. They are the ones who wear turbans on their heads and many carry weapons religiously. In fact, even their turbans are designed to be weapons.

During the election, Haley’s strongest supporters were the TEA Party movement. She received about 4% of the black vote. Less than what David Duke received when he ran for governor of Louisiana.

Now the NAACP is demanding that Haley show racial solidarity with the black racial lobby as a fellow “person of color.” They want her to remove the Confederate Battle flag from the statehouse grounds. She has refused.

NAACP head Ben Jealous said “Perhaps one of the most perplexing examples of the contradictions of this moment in history is that Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s first governor of color, continues to fly the Confederate flag in front of her state’s capitol. In other words, Haley is accused of being a race traitor for not sticking to the white man.

Jealous went on to say that American blacks and Indians were both victims of the white man’s “oppression.” He then claims that Gandhi would want the flag remove.

Obviously Jealous knows as little about Indian history as he does about American history. Jealous ignores the fact that the well-known Indian leader was a staunch supporter of racial segregation in South Africa. Gandhi ran a plantation in South Africa prior to returning to India become a leader in it’s independence movement. Gandhi proudly considered himself a fellow colonist and even organized an all-Indian volunteer stretcher-bearers brigade to support the British in the Anglo-Zulu war.
