NAACP Calls for Economic Boycott of St. Louis City/County

January 10th, 2012 by mopns · No Comments

This excerpt from a press release from the Missouri State Conference of the NAACP further proves that the NAACP is a tired and irrelevant organization offering more tired and irrelevant ideas:

NAACP State Quarterly meeting in Columbia, Mo. – On Saturday January 7, 2011 the NAACP Missouri State Conference supported the call for a Economic Boycott of St. Louis City and St. Louis County in support of the St. Louis NAACP’s concerns about the Metropolitan Sewer District’s (MSD) failure to approve a “Fair Share” resolution for greater minority participation on MSD projects.

The Resolution approved by the State Conference states “The governments of St. Louis City and County have direct supervision over the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), which will undertake one of the largest economic stimulus projects for the area creating and enormous amount of opportunities for both vendors and the local workforce.” MSD is required to complete roughly $4.7 Billion in sewer to satisfy a Consent Decree.

Brilliant! Propose an economic boycott while we’re in a recession with 9% unemployment! So basically all you poor black folks in north city and county, please travel to Illinois, St. Charles and Jefferson counties to purchase all your necessities of life so a few minority construction companies can get a piece of the white man’s pie!
