Harold Washington Quote

This is the quote from Mayor Harold Washington's second inaugural address that basically sums up what I think the NAACP should be, substituting racial differences for political and ideological differences. If the NAACP can't be this, then maybe we should make something that can.
Chicago in four years has brought together black and white, Asian and hispanic, male and female, the young, the old, the disabled, gays and lesbians, Moslems, Christians and Jews, business leaders and neighborhood activists, bankers and trade unionists--all have come together to mix and contend, to aruge and to reason, to confront our problems and not merely to contain them.
