NAACP gets fired up in Clayton

Recently, the Clayton county branch of the NAACP got a fresh start by electing a new president and installing several new officers.

“Contrary to what is perceived about the NAACP, we are not a political organization. We are a civil rights organization,” says C. Synamon Baldwin, who is the first woman to serve as president of the Clayton county NAACP. “We do not endorse any candidates! We do sponsor forums, debates and town hall meetings. We register people to vote and provide voter education. We are a 501(c)4 which allows us to promote issues that are important to people of all colors.”

Founded February 12, 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest, largest, and most widely recognized grassroots-based civil rights organization. As per the website, the organization was formed partly in response to 1908 race riot in Springfield, Illinois. Its main goals are to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of minorities, eliminate racial prejudice, and remove all barriers of racial discrimination through the democratic processes. The Clayton branch was formed in the summer of 1986.

“The NAACP is also not a Black organization, and has always been comprised of Black and White people. We are reaching out to our Latino, Hispanic, Asian, Haitian and people of all colors to join us,” adds Baldwin. “The goal for the Clayton Branch NAACP is to raise the bar for civil public discourse, whether the topic is among others, health, education, race or politics.”

” The NAACP is also not a Black organization ” ; Please Excuse my ignorance, but, Don’t the N.A.A.C.P.stand for The The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ?
The Goal that I see being raised here today, is a recruitment drive for The Clayton NAACP.
What has The Clayton NAACP done to promote our Latino, Hispanic, Asian, Haitian, Native Americans, or Caucasian communities during the past ten years ?
NAACP is nothing more than a lap dog to incite racism, hate, and to separate the existing harmony between our multicultural American Communities.
Why should these organizations, such as The NAACP,be forced on our communities, when we have no need for them ? Please, let us live in peace.

The only time the NAACP gets involved is when the media is present. Do not look for help or advise from this organization unles you have the spotlight shining on you.

This topic is about recruiting more donations for something that Clayton County don’t need. Catering to this free publicity should be frowned upon, because it is an obstacle for our peace & tranquility as a multicultural society.
Everyone should know that The NAACP stands for The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and from the looks of our Elected Officials…need I say more ?
It is of my opinion that the only goal for the Clayton Branch NAACP is raise money and to separate the races by dwelling on the past, when most us was not even born into this world.
Inciting Racial indifferences, in our close knit communities, is the last thing that we need.
I’ve a lot of Black American friends and I’m not fond about our friendship being threaten by these Race Profiteers in our county.

A very close facebook friend gave this to me and he still has the facebook message, sent to him by this person; Ask Cheryl Synamon Baldwin if she posted this on Facebook :

{{Cheryl Synamon Baldwin January 17 at 10:25am Report))
“STFU Angry white man of little substance. You can not match my verbal or written intellect even with my misspelled words!LOL! LOL!”

Its Very Sad to see this kind of animosity in our modern day world, after all the hard work that we put into making our county a place of peace.
I’m a Native Georgian and a long time resident of Clayton County and it hurts me a lot to me see this in our county.
There was much more, but, I found better not air them on a public forum.

Thank you this blog topic. Blacks and Whites are working together across the county. Unfortunately, our voices are silenced by local mainstream media because, working together in Clayton does not sell papers or get ratings. But we have the power of the media at our fingertips and we must use it. I am encouraged by the members of the Clayton County
Branch NAACP that we will usher in a climate of civil discourse in Clayton. We can get factual information out and confront lies in a matter of seconds now. By using our social networks, blogs and emails we can change a culture of ignorance.

That is the biggest lie that I have ever heard anyone say about The Clayton County NAACP and Baldwin is nothing short of being a Lying White Hating Racist and a Race Profiteer.

From this article…”The Clayton branch was formed in the summer of 1986.” I moved to Clayton County in 1986. Back then it was a good place to live. Now, my house is not even worth what I paid for it in 1986 and the school system has had it’s accredidation revoked (and reinstated) due to the misbehavior of the Board of Education members. I have one question…how has the NAACP helped Clayton County? Looks to me like we started having problems when they started their branch here. Results seem to tell this story.

Seems that NAACP moved to Clayton the same year I did, 1986. Back then it was a desirable place to live. Now my house is worth less than I paid for it 25 years ago. Wonder if it was me or the NAACP that ruined the neighborhood. Hmmmm…

How sad that you really see a connection. Clearly, you are one of those people who has not been aware of the true the mission of the NAACP. We cannot blame you for that. We must do a better job of getting our message across. Let it suffice to say, we are fired up and ready to go! In the NAACP, we have no permanent friends and no permanent enemies. We welcome all who stand fore equality and justice. Come on in and be pleasantly surprised!

Just My Opinion

In my opinion, the Clayton County NAACP will not not be as effective as its now new president says it will be.

From the writings that the new president of the Clayton County NAACP has written under her name on this blog this week and in previous weeks, it is my opinion that she will not promote a “civil discourse” on problems in this county and will not hold the super-majority black elected officials accountable and responsible for the decisions or lack of actions that could improve this county and feels that everything that they are doing is right, correct, and is moving this county forward and correcting the in my opinion, horrific living conditions in Clayton County.

In my opinion, the new president of the Clayton County NAACP based on her past and present writings in her own name on this blog (check out the archives section of this blog to read this for yourselves) is a very pro-black individual, so much so that it is my opinion that she is very supportive of all of the black elected officials and feels that they can do no wrong and if they get any kind of valid, objective, and factual criticisms that can be proven, they are getting “bad press and media coverage” by the “bad” local and mainstream media that she is quick to always say.

It is orf note that the new president of the Clayton County NAACP did not take the time to praise, thank, and show her appreciation of the local and national mainstream media- The Clayton News Daily and The Atlanta Journal And Consitiution for its very favorable and positive coverage of her instillation and her plans for the Clayton County NAACP on last Saturday the day of her instillation and last week.

In closing, it is my opinion that the new president will be a much better, engaging, hardworking, and active President that her precedessor who was virtually invisible, but I strongly feel and stand by my comments, opinions, and viewpoints that the new president of the Clayton County NAACP will not much at all to help the citizens of Clayton County get better, more effective, and more proactive and caring leadership from its now super-majority black elected officials because in my opinion, I feel very strongly that because she is so ‘pro-black” and in her writings on this blog, has shovn herself to be very critical of the people who rightly criticize their black elected officials (this is the truth in Clayton County because virtually all of the elected positions are held by black people because this county is black (>65%), she cannot effectively and objectively hold them accountable, responsible, and answerable because she is “too close to virtually all of them,” has been helped by many of them (she had to have their support and votes to get elected in because she was running against an incumbent President of the Clayton County NAACP), feels very strongly that they can do no wrong, supports virtually everything that they do, and in my opinion based on her writings in her own name on this blog, has shown herself to be critical and nonobjective to people who have a differing opinion from hers and has shown herself to be intolerent, nonsupportive, and even disrespectful (in her writings) to people who do not share her views, opinions, thoughts, and ways of doing things.

Well Stated Linda; And I would like to know where The NAACP was during the Block Busting Years of the early 90’s to the mid-90’s, when all of our cash heavy long standing White Clayton residents, was place in fear to sell out from the Block Busting scams, perpetuated by the scam artists in our county ?
For those that remained in our county, many was force to moved because of the bad elements that came into their communities and many of those people had already paid for their homes; They was forced to just leave.
Please don’t use words like “Ignorance” or “hate” if you don’t know the real meanings of the words.
And please don’t blame the economy on Clayton County’s outcome,this was inevitable from the beginning.
The only thing that The NAACP will accomplish, will be to throw more coal on a already hot fire.
Hasn’t the long time native citizen’s in our county suffered enough ?

Another Opinion

January 20th, 2011
2:09 pm

I do not think people of differing views, thoughts, and opinions that that of its new president Ms. Baldwin will be welcomed, supported, and encouraged in the Clayton County NAACP.

I knew Ms. Baldwin when she formed and ran the Clayton Countywide Homeowners Association and she was a very opinioned, rigid, and inflexible individual, ran her organization with an iron and heavy hand, was very intolerant and in some ways mean-spirited toward others who disagreed with her and did not allow strong differing opinions that what she had and if a person did show objectiveness, independent thinking, and using their “own” mind, they were quickly made to feel unwelcomed, a traitor, and a disloyal member of the organization.

Even though Ms. Baldwin’s previous organization was formed and started by herself and she had the right to run it as she saw fit, the Clayton County NAACP is a national organization, not hers exclusively, and although she should be a President who is inclusive, supportive of others opinions, viewpoints, and thoughts even if they strongly differ from her own, and be objective and hold people in power and who affect the lives of the people in Clayton County either in a positive or negative accountable, unfortunately, I feel very strongly based on her track record and as a previous blogger stated, her past writings in this blog, she will act and be like the way she was as President of the Clayton Countywide Homeowners Association which would not be appropriate and would not be what the Clayton County NAACP needs.

Ms. Baldwin will definitely be a better President of the Clayton County NAACP than its predecessor Mr. Dexter Matthews by the very fact that she is a hard worker, will get behind causes that she want to get behind and will see it to its conclusion, and has made a name for herself both inside and outside of Clayton County, especially in the National Offices of the NAACP.

Unfortunately, I do not think she will be of much help and will not benefit the average citizen of Clayton County who have elected officials who have nott spent the SPLOST monies that they have collected to build the recreactional centers that they promised, have elected officials and leaders who in my opinion, only care about themselves and promoting their own selfish interest that do not benefit the average Clayton County citizen, but in the long run, is hurting us with a poor quality of life in Clayton County and even though she states that the Clayton County NAACP is not a politial organization, she will make sure in 2012 by the organization sponsorship of politial forums and other venues that the NAACP is good for, that the black elected officials that she is so fond on, that she feels is doing such a great job that she does not feel the need to hold them accountable, responsible, or answerable for the decisions that they make will get elected again and will not listen to or entertain any differing thoughts, opinions, or viewpoints from people who feel that they are not doing a great job, have made decisions that have hurt Clayton County, have not been elected officals of actions working to make Clayton County a better place to live, work, and play because this is how she did this in her own organization the Clayton Countywide Homeowners Association and I strongly feel that this is the type of President she will be and how she will run things as Clayton County NAACP with is an organization that is more powerful, is nationally known, has the potiential to raise great sums and amounts of monies, and an organization where President Baldwin will weld greater power, authority, influence, and will be a major power and influential player in Clayton County in this year 2011, the next election year 2012 and beyond.

It is so very enlightening to see these comments of doubt and mis-education about the value and the work of the NAACP. We realize that we have so very much work to do in Clayton to educate the community and strengthen our local Branch. We got off to an empowering start on Saturday when over 200 members and friends in Clayton County attended our Commemoration of Dr. MLK, they all left the event more aware and informed.

Now for you naysayers, mean-spirited and evil people who will try to marginalize and dis-credit anything good in Clayton County, we say thanks for letting us know the climate we have to navigate through. We will waste no time on you. There are too many issues that need our attention. Keep blogging!

Read carefully @just my opinion.Just because a person takes pride in their own race does not mean that they hate others. We have people of all races and it seems to me that whenever Blacks express race pride they get push back. There is really something wrong with that picture.

I will not apologize for my parents raising me to take pride in who I am, just as Italian, Polish, German, Jewish, Asian, Indian and other races do! Get over it! I have helped more people of other races over the years of my life than I have my own! You can not put me in a little “black box”, your attempts to marginalize me will not work. I have a State and National reputation that you can not destroy and the people of Clayton will benefit in spite of you and your motives. Go peddle somewhere else. This is my last word on that!

Just My Opinion

President Baldwin responded to my comments just as I thought she would which is not factual, not correct, and just plain not true.

Read my post and then read President Baldwin’s responses.

President Baldwin did not address, comment, or give her own differing viewpoints, thoughts, and opinions on my views, thoughts, and opinions about how things will be with her as President of the Clayton County NAACP Branch the type of President she will be and how she will run things.

President Baldwin answered in the only way that she knows how it that she took my comments and twiisted them to make it seem that I am against her, and that there are in her own words “haters”, and people who seek to sabotage her and the Clayton County NAACP.

As alaways, President Baldwin takes any type of criticisms against her as totally negative and that people are trying to control, marginalize, and discredit her.

President Baldwin responses prove my very valid and true point on how people who would join and work in the Clayton County NAACP will be treated, looked negatively upon, and with scorn and redicule it they think for themselves, have their own opinions, ideas, and vewpoints and do not think like the President wants them to think.

It is my opinion, the life for members in the Clayton County NAACP will be that you must follow President Baldwin’s way and her way only, you cannot express or verbalize independent thinking it is not in line with President Baldwin’s thinking, philosophy, and how she wants to run things in the Clayton County NAACP and essentially, it will be President Baldwin’s way or the highway.

At no point in my post did I say anything about President Baldwin’s character.

I only stated in my opinion, the way that she would run her organization and how people of differing viewpoints would not be welcomed, accepted, or tolerated.

I did not mention anything about race except to say how because President Baldwin is so pro-black that she cannot hold the majority black elected officials accountable, answerable, and responsible because in my opinion and based on her writings on the blog in the past, no black elected official in Clayton County can do no wrong.

I have only stated my opinions, observations, thoughts, and viewpoints on this matter.

President Baldwin’s responses or lack of answering and giving her own differing thoughts and in her responses, proves my very point and shows that she herself is very guilty of marginalizing, dismissing, twisting, evading, and not concern about the views, thoughts, and opinions of others.

Just read my postings, President Baldwin’s responses and you can see this for yourself.

Noone is trying to destroy President Baldwin’s reputation, character, or her achievements in Clayton County.

President Baldwin is a master of deflection, evasion, and twisting the meaning and reason of any type of opinions, critical and objective evaluations and observations about herself.

Again, just read for yourself, President Baldwin’s responses to these posting, and formulate your conclusion for yourself as the type of President she will be, the things that she will do as President of the Clayton County NAACP, and whether or not, she will be an inclusive, welcoming, and warm President to people with strong, differing, and independent thoughts of their own or whether she will be a controlling, heavy-handed, intolerant, unwelcoming, unengaging, dominating, and iron-fisted President to those who do not share her views, opinions, and thoughts and who she feels and perceive may be a threat to her, her Clayton County NAACP organization, and her grandoise and big future plans for the Clayton County NAACP Branch.

To quote Charles Barkly, “I may be wrong,but I doubt it” how long before CSB makes a run for______(fill in blank). Is she using the NAACP to build a power base and name recognition or will she be a kingmaker, pulling strings behind the scenes? To give props where they are due, the lady is dedicated, hardworking and organized, all of the things the previous leadership was not. How she will use this newly won power remains to be seen.

I have a State and National reputation that you can not destroy and the people of Clayton will benefit in spite of you and your motives. Go peddle somewhere else. This is my last word on that!”

It makes me sad to see people coming to our county with attitudes such as this. Telling us to “go peddle somewhere else and then making a made dash retreat, is a sign of defeat in most debates.
In my own opinion, She seems to have very little respect for our concerns and most of us that post on the Clayton County forums, are those of us that cares enough to vent our concerns. The color of someone’s skin is no importance; its their attitude, meaner, behavior, kindness, tactful approach with people,and their love for their fellow human beings.
I only hope that she will read this and take it to her heart that the people in Georgia is not what she makes us appear to be.
My concern is, The NAACP is her employer and our thoughts comes from our own hearts and our love for our families and homes.
We show our roots in Southern Hospitably, its part of our nature in The South.

Revalator, sorry to disappoint, I will only be running out of Clayton. I have a family power base that supports me in all that I take on. As for name recognition, many people know the name across the country and throughout the south in particular. My name is all that I have left from my Dad and I always endeavor to protect his name by my own actions.

I would like to use this “newly won power” (in your words), to engage, train and expose our young people to the many opportunities that await them when properly educated and prepared. The NAACP provides local, state and national programs, scholarships, grants and awards for young people of all ages. We must usher in a culture of higher education for all people young and old. Education is the civil rights issue of this day and time.My first action will be to offer NAACP 101, to teach people about the organization and its true advocacy. Education changes people, families, communities and ultimately the world. Come on get on Board this Education Train! Please join us and be a part.

Kim, I thought this blog was supposed to be about, “What would you like to see the NAACP get involved in? That relevant question seems to have gotten lost in the minds of several bloggers. Their insatiable need to discredit, malign, verbally attack is indicative of why we here in Clayton are so dumbed down.

Just My Opinion

January 21st, 2011
10:53 am

Again, to sum it all up, President C. Synamon Baldwin is the type of hardworking, committed, grassroots President that the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch needs to reenergized itself and be the type of local organization that is relevant in Clayton County.

I personally feel that the Clayton County NAACP will be a much better and a more powerful, influential, and relevant organization and power player in Clayton County for the two years that she is President (the term for President is for two years before she faces reelection).

The criticisms that I wrote about President Baldwin not being tolerant, respectful,and welcoming of other people’s views, opinions, and thoughts of how things are in Clayton County and the disgust that many of us have with our local elected officials and how these type of people if they join the Clayton County NAACP Branch will be scorn, silence, not have their differing viewpoints and opinions heard, have their differing views dismissed, marginalized, and riducled needed to be posted so that President Baldwin will know (if she doesn’t know already) how she comes off to some people and others who know her very well view her but are afraid or unwilling to share these constructive criticisms to her for fear of angering her and having to face and deal with her wrath and fury and possible retaliation from her and the people that she are friends with who hold very powerful and influential elected positions in Clayton County (many of these people who she helped to get elected during her tenure as Founder and President of the powerful Clayton Countywide Homeowners Association in the Clayton County Election Periods of 2006, 2008 and even 2010 who are beholden to her and will go to great lengths to stay in her good graces and favor, especially now that she is President of a great national and well-established organization in one of its local branches, the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch).

Nevertheless, this will be a very interesting two years (2011 and 2012) for the Clayton County NAACP Branch and how it will perform under her very strong, top-down and yes in my opinion, dictatoral leadership and if this organization will truly act and operate in an independent way, helping all, even those who do not share President Baldwin’s views on how great things are in Clayton County, how great our elected black elected officials are doing (especially her overly favorable views of the Clayton County Board Of Commissioners and how every decision they make and the things that they are doing is “all the way right” and that can do no wrong and that they are just the model of absolute perfection) and if she will be truly accepting, welcoming, and encouraging those of us who would like to join the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch because of the many good things that they can do, but do not share President Baldwin’s views, opinions, and thoughts on other major matters that she feels very strongly and passionately about.

I would like to ask one question to C. Synamon Baldwin, about the NAACP in regards to our U.S. Constitution, Our Georgia Constitution, and Our State Laws of Georgia.

Does The NAACP support an Individual Right to “Keep and Bear Arms”, under The Second Amendment ?



I. A Radical Departure from The Court’s Second
Amendment Jurisprudence Is Not Warranted…. 4

A. The Second Amendment Does Not Protect an
Individual Right to “Keep and Bear Arms” for
Purely Private Purposes …………………………… 6…

06 SB396/AP Senate Bill 396

By the way; This Law has nothing to do with your Rights to Bear Arms. This Law allows us the right to exercise our rights to self protection without suffering the aftermaths of legal consequences.

Those Elected Officials and Legislators, Who Supported Our Rights To Protect Ourselves in Clayton County, Ga.

Not A Single One in Clayton County, Ga. !

Stand You Ground Law: SB 396 – Crimes; person who is attacked has no duty to retreat; provide immunity from prosecution

The Stand Your Ground Law : SB 396

A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Article 2 of Chapter 3 of Title 16 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to justification and excuse as a defense to certain crimes, so as to provide that a person who is attacked has no duty to retreat; to provide that such person has a right to meet force with force, including deadly force; to provide for an immunity from prosecution; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

Please provide us with your most professional answer on this;
How many of our State Legislators, from Clayton County, Lent their support for our Lawful Right to Defend our Life and the Lives of your family, in our own homes or in Public ?

Representative Roberta Abdul-Salaam – District 74 -Voted No

Representative DODSON – District 75- Not Voting (-)

Representative Gail BUCKNER – 76th district- Voted No

Representative Darryl Jordan – District 77-Voted No

Representative BARNES- HD 78 (D – Jonesboro)-Not Voting (-)

Senator STARR 44TH – Excused (E)

Senator SEAY, 34TH – Voted No

Part of being a citizen in Georgia and The United State of America, is having respect for our lawful rights, many upon many, has sacrificed their own lives for these rights.
The Clayton County State Legislative Branch are mostly composed of members of The NAACP ; Maybe The President of the Local Chapter of The Clayton County NAACP, would like to provide us with a answer to this conflict of disagreements .

The posting by Brick House In FP at 11:51 A.M. is a great and legitimate question posed to the new President Of The Clayton County NAACP Local Branch to answer concerning An Individual’s Right To Keep And Bear Arms and where her position is and that her Clayton County NAACP Local Branch is on this issue also.

The poster has documented facts in their post and this is one great example for President Baldwin to show where she and the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch stand on this issue.

Since President Baldwin has taken her time to write of her digust, anger, and disdain on the opinions, views, and thoughts about how she will be as a leader and President of the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch, I sincerly hope that she will give a VERY EDUCATED, COMPREHENSIVE, DETAILED, KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND INTELLIGENT RESPONSE to this poster’s very credible and legitimate question.

In my opinion, the way and type of answer that President Baldwin gives to this great question full of documented and well researched facts and truth (this poster even provided internet links to those who want to check out these facts for themselves) will shed some light on how she will respond to tough, strong, and hard questionings that are bound to come her way as President of the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch and how her thought processes are (if she decides to even answer this great, professional, intelligent, and well-written question).

The things that President C. Synamon Baldwin should be writing about is stating her positions on major and even controversial issues in Clayton County and where she stands and the position that the Clayton County NAACP Local Branch will take but President Baldwin HAS NOT DONE THIS AND EVEN IF SHE CHOOSES TO RESPOND TO THESE QUESTIONS, IT SHOULD NOT HAVE TO TAKE A POSTER TO MOVE HER TO DO THIS (IF SHE DECIDES AND CHOOSES TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS).

I have often said that the true worth of a person loyalty will be shown in how well they lend support to our Constitution, Our Laws, Our Communities that we live in, the service obligations that is asked of them, without any monetar gain from doing so.

Old timer I give you my word that Education is top priority for me! Two years from now you will be able to say she was true to her word. Now what I need from you is for you to stand with me. The task before me as you can see by some of these bloggers is quite daunting. But having said that I am up for the task but I can not do it without you and others. Please join us as we move forward.

C. Synamon Baldwin; Your unkindly insults on me don’t fool me one bit. You demanded acceptance here, but, you, like everyone else in this county, will have to earn it the hard way, by working for it. This is the only way to gain respect from us.
Please answer my questions and quit avoiding the issues of The NAACP. I really don’t want any opinions, I want logical answers to my questions.

You should give Ms Synamon her due. She works hard, is a good organizer, and is like a bulldog on her issues. Funny tho – electing someone to the Head of Clayton NAACP that by her own admission – had no ide how many members the local chapter was comprised of.

Those of us who have worked with Ms Synamon have seen the qualities that would make her good for this role, and the bad qualities, too. Make no mistake about it – this is all about Ms Synamon. of Ms Synamon , by Ms Synamon and for Ms Synamon. WOW – what an ego.

Fits in well with her buddies, Commish Ralph, Commish Hambrick, Commish Singleton and Honorary Commish Starr – they take care of the cliche they belong to. Good luck Ms Synamon.

…Before I can commitment myself to cast my vote for any candidate, they must prove themselves worthy of my vote. They must prove to me that they support Our Individual Rights under the U.S. Constitution, The Bill Of Rights, The Constitution Of Georgia, The State Laws Of Georgia, and The Absolute Right of the people to lawfully safe guard themselves from violent and aggressive criminal attacks.

.. I just don’t have the habit of doing a one legged dance, when my lawful rights is in jeopardy; I stand my ground and I expect our elected officials should do the same. to represent our best interests.
