Straddling the moral high ground

"All allegations must be taken seriously and examined thoroughly. But guilt cannot be assigned until all the facts are in and are tested in the courtroom crucible...Anyone that does not maintain this principle loses the moral high ground in any other case or claim." -- Rev. William Barber II, president of the North Carolina NAACP on lessons learned from the Nifong/Mangum Hoax.
.
"We're here today because it's wrong for the system to keep people locked down and locked up when the truth is already out." -- Rev. William Barber II, president of the North Carolina NAACP on the case of James Johnson, imprisoned for three years while awaiting trial in Wilson, North Carolina.

Can the NAACP become any more irrelevant in their public statements?

Mr Barber, and yes, the use of the prefix Rev. is intentionally left out, do you have any sense of civil rights belonging to all people, regardless of color?

It appears you do not.
