NAACP leader Benjamin Jealous resigns

(CNN) - Benjamin Todd Jealous will step down as president of the NAACP at the end of December, the civil rights organization announced Sunday.

"The NAACP has always been the largest civil rights organization in the streets, and today it is also the largest civil rights organization online, on mobile and at the ballot box too," Jealous said in a statement issued by the group Sunday afternoon. "I am proud to leave the Association financially sound, sustainable, focused, and more powerful than ever."

    Is there really something behind this? Does he really want to spend more time with the kids? Since he is only 40, I guess that he can really get back into job market later.

    Cant we all get along without observing each others skin color? Ohh no Economic 101 chapter one verse one states that, "everything is scarce" therefore, its our time to eat either based on race, or tribal kinships. What a fallacy!!
