From page A5 | April 16, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — Plans for a voter registration drive will be discussed Saturday when the Tri-City NAACP meets at Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Fairfield.

“We have some important local, statewide and congressional elections coming up soon,” Branch President Frederick B. Young Jr. said in a press release. “We want to make sure that everyone who is eligible to vote takes the opportunity to do so, especially young people.”

The 11 a.m. to noon meeting takes place at the church in the Zoe Building, Room V115, located at 1745 Enterprise Drive, Fairfield.

For more information, contact Young at 389-6020 or email tricitynaacp@comcast.net.

Reach Ryan McCarthy at 427-6935 or rmccarthy@dailyrepublic.net.

    Will they be issued side-handle batons or should they bring their own? Or was that the Black Panthers? It's hard to tell one from another these groups that promote one race over another (kind of racist, isn't it?).

    one way to answer your stupid question is to call them, the number is printed. I suggest you go to one of their meeting and ask for a side-handle baton. Stop hiding on paper, be a real man and go to the meeting and I will go to your next Klan meeting.

    Larry, isn’t this a case of the pot calling the kettle black? Your attempts to label “The Mister” as narrow minded are futile at best. When 70+% of the black population vote democratic and 90+% voted to elect/re-elect Obama, I can only characterize these individuals as “of the same mind.” The truth is that the AA (African American) vote is a democrat lock. These folks have fallen into the trap that our politicians have laid for them. There is no right/left paradigm despite what they would have you believe. The politicians have divided us along political/racial/ideological lines and have accrued power as a result of their efforts. The truth is that both parties envision the same goal, a peasant/serf class that doesn’t ask any questions. Is that what we are? Slaves? Isn’t that what the AA community worked so hard to overcome? Unfortunately the AA community will continue to vote along party lines as long as it serves their economic interests. “Don’t think for yourselves.” “Trust me to know what’s best for you.”

    Hard to comment and not be rude. We are divided in this country, its much less about the color of ones skin as is the pathetic, disgusting, and disrespectful attitudes of the foolish and ignorant voters.... many of which happen to be low income and racial minorities. How about you just leave the country rather than continue to destroy it? The NAACP will get more voters to support the laws that continue to erode this country. Again, it had nothing to with race. So stop playing the card.

    Larry - if you don't know that the NAACP and Democrats are all about race you haven't been paying attention to the news lately. Holder, Pelosi, and Obama have decided to try to turn the voters attention away from Benghazzi and Obamacare by insinuating that Republicans are all racists. I just want to know two things --- 1) Is the NAACP going to give the young voters marching orders at the meeting so they know for whom they are to vote; and 2) are you going to insist on voter id's when they register to vote and then vote? Unfortunately, we all know the answers to both questions.

    Teach5th, here is the real truth trust me. The Democrats have done no such thing and don't need to. O'Reilly isn't gaining any favor in the black community. Benghazi, ACA, religious freedom and the entire GOP candidate roster are good reasons why the Republicans are getting flushed. Clear thinking Americans don’t exactly see these folks as truly wonderful people! :)

    To be honest - I love Ben Carson, but I'm not sure he could be elected since he's never held public office.

    Very funny comments. I realize that some people just want to make a statement, or just want to be heard. I can go with that. No matter what the announcement states, some readers have a major comprehension problem when reading article coming from organizations that they don't like. I will try to help those with this major comprehension problem. Does the article mention Democrats? Obamacare? Holder? Pelosi? Republicans? does the article give a detail account of the percent of Blacks who voted Democrats? You should only make comment base upon the article not what you think>

  • I will put this here also...April 16, 2014 - 10:50 am

    Good comment... If we didn't have a governor who believes the State of California is subordinate to the Federal Government, then whatever Congress does wouldn't matter a wit. The national "Federal" government was created by agreement of the Individual States to a few specific things. The "created" can have no more power than the "creator". The Federal government can have no more power than the individual States allow. The States are the boss. Gov Brown is the chief executive of our State. Brown can tell Congress to pound sand, keep our money in our State, and make California a better place to live in the process....... Remember there is an Iluminati created left/right paradigm at all levels of Government.... The above statement is something both Democrats and Republicans should consider... The Topic is ... States Rights.... States should be able to protest unconstitutional mandates of the Federal Government.. you Democrats should become aware of this also. To Save the Republic we all need to decide on some basic common principles.

    I just have one small comment to make about this development . How do you feel about a voter regestration drive beheld at all the LDS churches. After all young Mormons are needed to turn out out in these inportant elections too.

  • CD BrooksApril 16, 2014 - 6:29 pm

    Rod F, this is a terrible idea! The Mormon church made a practice of posthumously baptizing non-Mormons. So is this an effort to get more names for their “no longer practiced” practice?
