The individual who wrote this article is clearly of the same mindset as the NAACP. He makes it seem as this talk was merely chosen because of the Trayvon-Zimmerman issue. Nonsense. The NAACP is a neo-marxist group which is talking the Stand Your Ground Laws to the U.N.  But the author, maybe even unknowingly, reveals why the NAACP despises Stand Your Ground Laws. The NAACP wants law abiding citizens to be force to have to run when criminals show up and give society to them. Of course, the NAACP is involved because for them this  a racist issue. Funny, they do not seem to worry to much when it is a white criminal who is shot. S


NAACP plans ‘Stand Your Ground’ talk at annual dinner

MIDDLETOWN >> The Middlesex County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is hosting its annual Freedom Fund Award dinner Thursday.

According to chapter President Rosa Browne, the event is being held, in part, as a way of increasing membership and educating the public about the NAACP’s community work.

Following an award presentation in which individuals and businesses in the community will be honored for their dedication and commitment to diversity, Perry Forgione, a retired FBI agent, will speak on the law that’s become known as “Stand Your Ground.”

The law, which gives individuals the right to use deadly force to defend themselves without any requirement to evade or retreat from a dangerous situation, was widely debated in the controversial trial ofGeorge Zimmerman last summer. Zimmerman was acquitted of charges brought against him in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, sparking outrage and protests from civil rights organizations and advocates across the country.

Browne said the aftermath of the Zimmerman trial was what prompted organizers to feature the topic.

“It’s an important community talk in the wake of hearing ‘not-guilty’ for Zimmerman,” said Browne. “The community in general needs to be educated in reference to embracing diversity and other topics that are affecting minorities.”

The event will take place at the Masonic Temple, 33 Pleasant St., Middletown, beginning at 6 p.m. and is open to both members of the public and NAACP members at a cost of $65, Browne said.
