General Jeff “The NAACP can Kiss my Ass”!!!!

Skid Row Community Activist General Jeff addresses a recent email where he suggests that “When they finish kissing Paul LePage Mayor of Maine told them (NAACP) to kiss his ass”. In all of my life and especially during my tenure here in Skid Row, 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. When will The NAACP acknowledge and begin working with the people of color residing in skid row.

General Jeff
