Report: NAACP Members, Chapters Angry Over National Chapter’s Support for Gay Marriage

According to Redding News Review, there are chapters of the NAACP that are not happy with the recent announcement by national president Ben Jealous in support of same-sex marriage.   Many of the chapters are not in support of the idea, and were caught off guard by the Jealous announcement.

“They are not happy,” the former board member told ReddingNewsReview. “They have really been caught like a deer in headlights. It caught them off-guard they and they don’t know how to respond. They don’t know how to articulate what happened to members. They don’t know what to do, they don’t know what to say and there has been no communication from Baltimore.”
