Truth is truth no matter how much someone tries to spin it, and when it comes to the racial antagonism teabaggers pretend they are not about, the truth will keep coming at them until it takes them out. The number of times we have caught the teabagging crowd cavorting with neo-Nazis and other assorted white supremacists makes them look sillier and sillier when they deny it is going on. But one thing that we knew was going to happen sooner or later was a black conservative having enough of it. That happened today, with a guy we came across at the "See? We're not racist" event in Philly last year called the Uni-TEA rally. Frantz Kebreau (pictured) was the National Director of the so-called National Association for the Advancement of Conservative People of All Colors, but he had since stepped down, and his replacement James C. Marshall reached out to conservative people who were only interested in one color - and it was most certainly not black. That upset Kebreau something awful, and after giving the group the chance to correct this, decided to cut his ties. Now the NAACPC is one of those right-wing groups that like to pretend conservatives are not racist by touting all the pro-black things the Republican Party 100 years ago. Needless to say, that crap never works because we are talking about what conservatives are doing and what they are doing now. Mr. Kebreau, last year we reached out to you about the scumbags in your camp that do this, but like most of the folks in it we just assumed that you were more interested in being a conservative than being a human being for you to care. We hope this means we're wrong.

Last summer, a Philadelphia Tea Party rally was organized and geared towards spotlighting tea party members of color to refute charges of racism, but it came under scrutiny because of one of it's speakers, racist propagandist Andrew Breitbart. Frantz Kebreu was also scheduled to speak at the "Uni-Tea" rally, and his group the National Association for the Advancement of Conservative People of All Colors (NAACPC) brushed off concerns about sharing a platform with Breitbart. “If the purpose of life we to cower at the sight of trouble then nothing would be accomplished,” an email to One People's Project read. “We at the NAACPC are using this platform to unite. If others feel the Mr. Breitbarts' presence would hinder that goal, then we would hope that the opportunity to bring people together would outweigh the opportunity for division.”
Now Kebreu, who was the group's National Director at the time, has now disassociated with them after new Director James C. Marshall, published an article on the recent rash of flash mobs with a link to an article on the subject from the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens (C of CC).
"The NAACPC membership, Board Members and the reader are asked to help make this particular article 'go viral'," Kebreu wrote in a statement. "Unfortunately, the National Director has either ignorantly or intentionally asked those listed above to help “go viral” the reference source of the article…The Council of Conservative Citizens."
Kebreu went on to note that the C of CC is an extremist group which states on their website that they are “the only serious nationwide activist group that sticks up for white rights!"
According to Kebreu, who noted that he does not claim anyone in the Melbourne, FL-based group is affiliated with white supremacists, when he raised his concerns with the NAACPC, he waited three days for a resolution, and when he did not see one came to his decision to step away from the group. "As the former National Director for the NAACPC, I can not and will not condone such connections. The message of the NAACPC was clear and unequivocal before I left office," he wrote. "We were designed to 'End Identity Politics and Create a Colorblind Society'. A connection and promotion of a Pro-White organization is the antithesis of such a message."
The C of CC article published last Aug. 24 takes issue with a flash mob that had taken place in Des Moines, IA during the Iowa State Fair that day where a number of black males reportedly engaged in scuffles with white patrons. Calling the flash mob a "race riot", a particular swipe is taken at African American Iowa State Representative Ako Abdul-Samad who had saw controversy by saying the flash mob was not racially motivated, Refering to video from a legislative session, the article read, "In a scene reminiscent of the movie Birth of a Nation, Samad is seen wearing Islamic garb and eating fried chicken while the Iowa state legislature is in session."
On Aug 12, Marshall paraphrased that particular quote in his own article, which addressed the same flash mob as if it happened the day before. "This was 100% racial," he wrote. 'Witnesses’ accounts claim everything from dozens to hundreds of young black people beating white people as they left State Fair Thursday night.' Cops did nothing to stop the riot. Instead they chose to direct traffic!!!! It is of my opinion that the Democratic agenda to segregate kids in the school system and build up race separation and animosity. "
The NAACPC' removed the link from its Facebook page with member Margie Kinder posting, "(T)he link attached was corrupted."
This was not been the only instance over the past week where mainstream conservatives reached out to the C of CC. In an article published on the right-wing World Net Daily, writer Jack Cashill in defending a WND collegue named Tim Adams that two years ago broadcaster Keith Olbermann admonished for attending a C of CC conference, even attempted to suggest that "the Council of Conservative Citizens had none of the racist language on its website that Olbermann said it had."
