The president of the NAACP’s chapter in Norfolk, Virginia is under fire and facing calls for his resignation, following a message on his Facebook wall that’s out of sync with the his national organization’s messaging about the Trayvon Martin case.

Tristan Breaux angered his organization’s members by writing on Friday that ‘[a]s I look at this George Zimmerman case … I wonder why is it that we are always willing to say someone who clearly had a shaky past, was the victim.’

‘Are we blinded about why Trayvon was at his dad’s house in the first place, and why he wasn’t at home at the time he was shot? Please think logically and not racially…’

Breaux, 25, wrote those words the day before a jury agreed with George Zimmerman’s self-defense claim and found him not guilty of murder and manslaughter in the case of Martin’s death.

Local African-American officials are calling for Breaux’s head.

Norfolk City Councilman Paul Riddick told WAVY-TV10 that ‘the national [NAACP] office should come into this. ‘It would be an effort to silence this fellow. I don’t know how recall process works, but I think they should recall him.’

‘He obviously does not have the maturity when to speak and when not to speak.’

‘My initial reaction, Riddick added, ‘was that it wasn’t true, that somebody had gone on his Facebook and had planted this.’

Former Norfolk NAACP president Bob Rawls was more measured in his comments to WAVY-TV10, but still suggested Breaux should be muzzled..

‘I think this should be tried in the courtroom and not on social media,’ said Rawls.

‘If he had been talking to another person or two or three people and voiced his personal opinion that’s different. When you put it on social media so somebody in Florida, California, Oregon or New York is reading this, that is wrong.’

Rawls told the Virginian-Pilot newspaper that Breaux should resign.

To the old guard of civil rights leaders in Norfolk and other urban areas in Virginia’s tidewater region, Breaux was initially a breath of fresh air.

‘I am part of the generation which did not sit in the back of the bus,’ he told reporters when he took office in January. ‘We did not attend segregated schools or march for civil rights. … My generation is more inclusive in our view toward race; at the same time realizing we have a lot of work to do to resolve problems related to it.’

But he also drew a stark line in the sand, claiming that his generation of black leaders will ultimately plant their flag in the civil rights movement, in much the same way as today’s older activists did generations ago when they were younger.

‘When you think of the fight in the early civil rights era, you think of John Lewis, Julian Bond, and Barbara Jordan,’ he told the Virginian-Pilot shortly after his election.

‘I am sure that they sometimes got nervous and doubted opinions and statements that they made. However, they pressed forward and continued to fight, even when they may have been fighting all alone.’

The national NAACP did not respond to questions about Breaux’s future.

    Even when a black talks sense they want to crucify him. Especially?

    • Oil Can Harry

      This guy must be crazy! He actually asked blacks to :

      1. “Think logically”
      2. stop playing the race card
      3. note St. Trayvon’s criminal history

      Talk about career suicide!

  • The__Bobster

    I’m surprised that the other chapters didn’t call for Tristan Breaux to be anally raped. After all, they must march in lockstep no matter how wrong they are.

  • The__Bobster

    ‘He obviously does not have the maturity when to speak and when not to speak.’
    __________

    Actually he appears to be the only mudflap who does. The rest of them are regurgitating lies and nonsense.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Like so much that black mushmouths spew forth this piece drips with irony does it not?

    • Next thing we know, he’ll be telling black teens to finish school, not get pregnant and stay away from drugs, crime and gangs.

      I’m not going to hold my breath.

  • Erasmus

    Good heaven. A voice of intelligence trying to save them from themselves is shouted down?

    Quelle surprise! (NOT)

  • If this was South Africa, Tristan Breaux would be necklaced by now.

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    Please think logically and not racially…
    .
    Umm, isn’t thinking racially instead of logically the NAACP’s raison d’être?

  • Greg Thomas

    This is what happens when we have an “honest discussion” about race in this
    country. Anyone who does not support the victim narrative, so often perpetuated
    by diversity, is immediately demonized, with calls for his or her head, literally.

  • IstvanIN

    He sounds like Rev. Manning.

  • sbuffalonative

    One black man offered a small piece of reason and other blacks became ‘outraged’.

    Telling the truth in the black community can get you excommunicated. Right now they’re looking for ways to revoke his ‘I am a black man’ card.

  • JohnEngelman

    The civil rights movement is over. The civil rights legislation was signed. The NAACP should do what anti war activists said President Johnson should have done in Vietnam. It should declare victory and go home.

    It is not the fault of whites that blacks have not taken advantage of the opportunities that have been opened to them.

    • Athling

      No, instead, more of their true natures came out:

      High rates of black violence in the late twentieth century are a matter of historical fact, not bigoted imagination. The trends reached their peak not in the land of Jim Crow but in the more civilized North, and not in the age of segregation but in the decades that saw the rise of civil rights for African Americans — and of African American control of city governments. — William Stuntz, Harvard Law professor

    • AutomaticSlim

      “The civil rights legislation was signed.”

      It should really be repealed. Both the 64 and 68 versions.
      A gross violation of individual rights.
      Where the h*ll does the constitution say that I am accountable for:

      – who I hire
      – who I promote
      – who I sell my house to
      – who I rent an apartment to
      – who I pick up in a cab
      etc…

      And it is not just individuals.

      The county where I live is under a great deal of fire from HUD to build low income housing, but they have mandated they be built in…90% WHITE AREAS ONLY!!!
      I am not making this up!

      The civil rights acts and laws are un-American and have to go.
      It is frightening how many Republicans feel compelled to defend these abominations.

      • Creepy as a cracker!

        They are importing blacks into my area at blazing speed. 10 years ago you never saw a black in my town, now you can’t get away from them.

        • Greg Thomas

          Same with me, and I live in OC, California. I do not know where they are coming from.

          • Romulus

            From the urban toilets of course. All people will flock to where jobs ,wealth and power are. Even blacks don’t want to live in a majority Mexican village.

        • So CAL Snowman

          Same here, I live in a coastal CA town and I have seen a noticeable uptick in africans here. I used to go DAYS without seeing one, but now that is no longer the case. I’m tempted to ask one where they all came from but then I remember the training I have received here and other race realists sites and I know to stay the hell away from them.

          • Greg Thomas

            I used to go years without seeing one snowman. Now, I see several a day and these are your typical ghetto types. There is no way they could afford to live here without substantial government assistance.

          • Dave4088

            Don’t feel so bad. The city I live near has imported hundreds of blacks from a nearby major city. Some of these people have been resettled into formerly all white middle class neighborhoods. I found out from a relative of a police officer that the state and feds pay all of their housing and living costs. The city is building new housing projects for the others.

            The rest of us must work like dogs to support these black welfare parasites. It’s maddening and sickening.

          • Spartacus

            Whenever you see public housing being built, just burn it down.

          God, I hope they’re siphoning them from Alabama. Please please please

            If you remember the Harry Stone story from last year, that is my hometown. Born and raised there. I drove by the crime scene within 10 minutes of the shooting. Growing up, there was 1 black student in my elementary school. After looking up census info, the cold, hard truth was revealed. 1990, 3% black. 2010, 26% black. I guess its fair to say that man will never develop the ability to time travel. If he had, one would have certainly traveled back in time by now to enlighten our forefathers about these people, and stop the import of slaves dead in its tracks. We wouldn’t even be having this discussion right now.

        • Whitetrashgang

          I live in Winnipeg and you could go all year without seeing a negro ,now they are falling out of trees. How people in the US ever put up with them is beyond me. I feel like that guy in Norway, whtats next white flight to the North Pole? I guess Mars is the great white hope .Is there anything that can be done short term at least? Oh and f#ck all jews POS. Have a blessed day.

      • JohnEngelman

        The civil rights legislation signed during the 1960s is a settled issue. It is part of the status quo. I would like for it to be narrowly interpreted in order to preclude forced school busing and affirmative action.

        Nevertheless, no one with serious aspirations of being elected at the state or national level can run against it and have a chance of winning.

        • AutomaticSlim

          A sad commentary on American politics.
          This country was founded on individual liberties, yet most if not all politicians are expected to worship at the alter of “civil” rights…the most egregious subversion of individual liberties and private property rights. It is not merely a black / white thing.

          • JohnEngelman

            Like other reactionaries you see the concept of “individual liberties” through the eyes of an employer. Most Americans are employees.

            One gets places in politics by getting in front of popular issues. When one fights for lost causes one loses credibility for issues where one could win.

          • AutomaticSlim

            I do not consider myself to be a reactionary.
            Would you not agree that common sense dictates that people have sovereignty over their own private property – including privately owned businesses and rental properties? This is why I did not mention colleges. I know they are run by liberals and they would enact their own forms of affirmative action and racial quotas even without the government mandates. And guess what? I have no issues with them doing that if that is how they choose to run their business. I would would never support them monetarily, but I would not ask for government laws to force them to change.

            I see things from my perspective.
            And yes, I am an employer, with a workforce of one. Myself.

    • MBlanc46

      But I’ll bet those NAACP jobs are pretty cushy for affirmative action blacks who’d have a hard time getting jobs in the real economy. Got to keep the racial pot stirred to keep the paychecks coming.

  • Spartacus

    “When you think of the fight in the early civil rights era, you think of John Lewis, Julian Bond, and Barbara Jordan…”

    When I think about civil rights in America, the only thing I think about was that out of the 11 co-founders of the NAACP, only one of them was black…

    • IstvanIN

      The usual suspects.

    • Romulus

      THEY have been the instigators all along. Their social decisions, their money, their courts, their science,their banks, their media!!!

      • Spartacus

        From Wikipedia :

        “The conference resulted in a more influential and diverse organization,
        where the leadership was predominantly white and heavily Jewish American.
        In fact, at its founding, the NAACP had only one African American on
        its executive board, Du Bois himself. It did not elect a black president
        until 1975, although executive directors had been African American. The
        Jewish community contributed greatly to the NAACP’s founding and
        continued financing. Jewish historian Howard Sachar writes in his book A History of Jews in America of how, “In 1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise.”[17] Early Jewish-American co-founders included Julius Rosenwald, Lillian Wald, Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch and Wise.”

        • Romulus

          Thank you, my friend. Yes quite the story,wouldn’t you say! You might like to revisit the “eugenics” story thread and look over the dialogue between J. E., Mr. Ashton and I ,just for fun.

  • JackKrak

    Gives me hope that one day the NAACP chief will say “Damn, we ARE really messed up!”

    • Irishgirl

      Dare to dream.

  • ncpride

    In the numerous articles and comments I’ve read on this fiasco, I can count on one hand the number of blacks who have defended Zimmerman and been honest about Martin, and let me tell you, the other blacks would attack them as viciously as a starving dog would attack a huge steak. That’s why it will never get better for this race as a whole. Their people shout them down for speaking the truth, much like ours do to us realists.

  • David Ashton

    Oreo, coconut, Uncle Tom….no end to the defamation if someone steps out of the mob.

  • din_do_nuffins

    “Tristan Breaux” is another one of those ubiquitously absurd N’gro names which only goes to prove how little they’ve emancipated themselves from the White man’s culture.

    Why do blacks insist on naming themselves with White names, and just as bad, dress in White fashion, and worse, attend White schools, use White technology, and treat their diseases with White medicine?

    Why couldn’t he change his name to something authentically vibrant and African, like “Ooga Booga”?

    Same for Eric Holder, an truly Anglo-Saxon name stamped on a mongrel mulatto. That offends my White privilege and must be stopped. “Ongo Bongo” for him.

    • IstvanIN

      In this guys defense most people don’t go around changing their names at random. Names are such an integral part of our identity. Even women, when they get married, don’t actually “change” their names as much as they “take” their husband’s last name, but they don’t actually renounce their maiden names. I would think just changing one’s name would be difficult.

      • Romulus

        It isn’t. One simply has to fill out the proper paperwork, show photocopies of identification and pay an afforded sum.

        • IstvanIN

          I meant emotionally difficult. In NJ, unless you have a marriage certificate, you are not going to get new ID in a new name without a judges signature.

          • Romulus

            Oh, I misinterpreted. The rules may vary from state to state.

    • N’DeSimian X.

      “Eric Holder” is an obvious slave name.

  • Erasmus

    What be dat la-jic you be talkin’ ’bout?

  • Greg Thomas

    Of course it’s impossible. Look what happened to this guy.

  • IstvanIN

    The attacks on this man are proof positive why the Negro can never improve his lot. The truth can never be spoken, only the basest of emotions must be expressed.

  • BlarneyMiller

    “‘I think this should be tried in the courtroom and not on social media,’ said Rawls.”

    Ummh, Mr. Rawls, I’m not sure how to tell you this, but it was already tried in the courtroom. I’ve heard of being disappointed with the trial outcome, but to pretend the trial never happened is an amazing feat in denial. Unless, of course Mr. Rawls is convinced that good ol’ attorney General Holder is going to give them another kick at the cat with a DOJ case.

  • Romulus

    It is a BLACK racist organization.

    • John Smith

      Well not completely. It’s sad though they’ve veered so far of course from their original mission which in 1909 meant Its mission is “to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination” instead of seeking to use the government to enable the opposite against Zimmerman… lol. Not really funny but well…

  • WR_the_realist

    And even if you could, that shouldn’t take away Zimmerman’s right to defend himself when a black thug is bashing his skull into the pavement.

    • Spartacus

      That goes without saying. If you’re smarter than a black, that is…

      • Irishgirl

        For loudmouthed blacks, NOTHING “goes without saying.”

  • libertarian1234

    They have to be careful to keep the narrative of injustice going to the black rank and file dopes who are so dim-witted they’ll believe anything they’re told.

    They’ve got to get GZ at any or all costs or they’re fearful that more whites will Zimmerize other black thugs who Trayvonize people.

    They’re too dumb to know it wouldn’t change a thing if they got their way.

  • Aaron997

    Well, he told blacks to use logic, and they’re upset. Least surprising thing ever.

    Also, ‘He obviously does not have the maturity when to speak and when not to speak.’
    That sentence missing a verb.

  • Alexandra1973

    One poster on there was going on about how they’re owed reparations…and I totally went off on them.

    I also pointed out that Ancient Rome was more advanced than modern Africa.

  • I don’t think Ray really did the shoot. He was a drifter of limited intellect, but after King’s assassination, Ray turned up in Britain with two false Canadian passports. It’s hard to figure that guy forging a passport.

  • Lop_Eared_Galoot

    Takes a brave man to say the obvious truth without shading it under these conditions.
    I would suggest that he is providing for his people a way out of a perceived loss of status because he knew or had reason to suspect the verdict would be the way it is.
    In this you must understand a key difference between Whites and Blacks.
    We are elitists who raise up success and shun failure. It would not take us two seconds to decide a White who behaved as Mr. Martin did, both before and during the incident, was someone we were better off without.
    Blacks are all in the boat and while they may pound someone for breaking their own byzantine internal rules, the only thing they will not tolerate as a function of public excoriation is a traitor to outsider group’s stated beliefs.
    And that is why, even though they form only 13% of our total population, they are an incredible risk factor for those of us who believe that what is right -is- truth. And not what is convenient to our own.
    I have seen it with my own eyes, where a Black will not shut up and walk away but has to keep worrying a subject long after an entire room full of people have told him to stop. Where he will lay semantic traps just to prove that if you are wrong by way of misinterpretation here, you were wrong before as well.
    They will not accept being wrong and will seek power until they have the numbers or the political mass to force all issues to ‘their way of thinking’.
    We can only escape this attitude or kill it utterly. And we will not conceive that a failure to do one or the other is the surest path to our own genocide.

    “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
