NAACP Officially Endorses LGBT Equality Act

Via NBC News:

The NAACP, the country’s oldest African-American civil rights organization, publicly endorsed the Equality Act, a federal LGBT anti-discrimination bill. “We support what it does — and we support it now,” Hilary Shelton, the organization’s D.C. bureau director, told NBC News on Friday. “It’s important that it gets through.” Shelton said the group had previously endorsed the bill in meetings with two of its sponsors, Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., and Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I.

The organization’s support came into question earlier this week after Gregory T. Angelo, the former president of gay conservative group Log Cabin Republicans, implied the NAACP was not behind the bill. In an opinion piece titled “Don’t Fall for the ‘Equality Act,’” Angelo stated that “African American legacy civil rights groups are absent” from an “exhaustive list” of organizations supporting the Equality Act. He specifically cited the NAACP.

Quisling homo-CON Gregory T. Angelo should be bitch-slapped every hour, on the hour, and never get laid again, but I doubt he does now.
