NPR: "Don't Blame ACORN's Workers. They're Just Poor Dumb Minorities From the Inner City"

Earlier I questioned how ACORN might spin the latest release of the video from their San Diego office. I forgot that they could just claim Juan Carlos is too dumb to understand that this is not a proper course of action. After all, he's only a minority. Oh wait Frank James at NPR already used that argument for them. Seriously.

"It's also important to keep in mind that ACORN's workers are coming from the same low-income neighborhoods the organization serves, with all that entails -- poor schools, high crime and the sorts of social problems that have been documented for decades.

So the flaws conservatives are pointing out about ACORN are not so much problems associated with that organization per se but more about the problems of being poor and minority in urban America."

So keep this in mind as you watch these videos in which poor minorities try to keep up with the evil white people. At least that's how the left has chosen to frame this.

And they have the nerve to call conservatives racist?


  1. So this means that we should cut ACORN some slack and not require that they follow the LAW? Because according to Frank James, we really can't expect a whole lot from the employees, therefore, just let it go?

  2. That seems to be the idea, except don't forget that we need to cut the employees some slack too because, according to Frank James, they're just poor minorities from the inner city.
