Thank goodness someone from the African-American community has spoken up about the leadership and the fading star of the NAACP ("Jealous' legacy at the NAACP is far from laudable," May 21). Until there is new leadership and one who refuses to be a pawn of a political party, the NAACP will continue to become irrelevant for many of its constituents because of the obvious bias. I don't know new NAACP President Cornell Brooks, and that seems to be a problem that few do know him, but maybe he can provide necessary leadership and the media will not continue to go to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson as spokesmen for the African-American community.
