NAACP Stands Ground on Stand Your Ground Law

Today according to Jacksonville.com the NAACP has again assumed a public stance on the Florida “Stand Your Ground” law only the position was opposite the organization’s screams over the Treyvon Martin shooting;

The NAACP’s Jacksonville chapter has thrown its support behind a woman who will be sentenced Monday in a shooting where she claimed self-defense against an abusive husband under the state’s Stand Your Ground law.

The odd thing is I remember the NAACP sang a much different tune over Zimmerman who was also involved in a Florida shooting and subject to the Stand Your Ground Law.  On the NAACP.org homepage I clicked a “Read More” link [pictured in screenshot] and was surprised to find a “glaring” contradiction;

 As a nation, we’ve got to address the issues of racial profiling and the valuation of black men’s lives by law enforcement. In the months ahead the NAACP and our allies in the civil rights community will continue to take these issues on as well as the urgent need to repeal stand your ground laws.

Apparently the NAACP supports the stand your ground law when it is in the benefit of a black individual or against the benefit of a non-black.  What other conclusion can I come to?  The story of the Florida woman came out today.  The cite above from the NAACP.org site was sourced today.

I understand that I point out a lot of contradictions in this blog and that is simply the nature of the beast when dealing with politics and law; but I feel it is especially important to analyze all of what is stated on a public platform today because there are people who want to fundamentally change this country’s constitution via the amendment process… and they are making ground.  I am only examining their supporters, cohorts, and fringe groups.

Stay informed…
