After you get done “kissing the butt” of Maine Governor Paul LePage, please feel free to “kiss my ass” next!

To NAACP
and CEO Ben Jealous,

After you get done “kissing the butt” of Maine Governor Paul LePage, please feel free to “kiss my ass” next!

My name is General Jeff and I am a community activist for the Skid Row community in Downtown Los Angeles. I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, have toured around the world as a West Coast Hip-Hop/Rap pioneer and most recently have been serving the people of Skid Row for more than three years now.

In all of my life and especially during my tenure here, I have NEVER seen nor heard of the NAACP coming to or caring about Skid Row! As it has been well-documented, the demographics in Skid Row are majority “people of color”, the same as whom your organization claims to represent and/or care about. After countless decades of mistreatment by the missions, non-profits and social service providers, the lack of your organization’s presence is counter-productive to your overall mission statement.

And for CEO Jealous to claim that Governor LePage has “denigrated” his office regarding one holiday event is ludicris in comparison to the NAACP’s denigration as it relates to Skid Row, which in it’s current climate has existed since the mid-1970’s when the CRA declared Skid Row a “containment zone”.

How dare the NAACP call Governor LePage “out of touch” when last June the NAACP held a press conference to announce that their national conference would be coming to Downtown Los Angeles, well within walking distance to Skid Row. How can the NAACP “party” here but not put in ANY work here? And please be reminded that Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles has widely been known as the homeless capital of the world for decades, until the earthquake disaster last January in Haiti.

After first attempting to contact NAACP last summer on your website( with no response), I have already again attempted to contact NAACP prior to this e-mail( again via your website). Myself, along with the many frustrated residents of Skid Row anxiously await for an official response, as well as a notification of when our collective “ass” will be kissed. Maybe during your national conference when you all come to L.A. this summer.

Please feel free to contact me at the above e-mail address, or via cell 323.445.0723.

Lastly, my organization is ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS and we would be more than happy to forward copies of our many achievements in Skid Row and initiate a dialogue of how the NAACP can be of assistance to the residents here. Or please feel free to initiate your own program that will help to improve the depleted area known as Skid Row.

Sincerely,

General Jeff
spokesperson-
ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS
