Broken Promise, Empty Dreams

Dear Editor,

I was reading The Wave on Saturday and I came upon an article that I read about the battle for NAACP leadership. Well, first of all, I would like to say that my nephew, Mario Young, was killed on September 25, 2006, not 1996. Secondly, there was a comment about it because it was stated that the NAACP have done nothing after the death of Patrick Hernandez. But, what has Pastor Evans done since the death of my nephew, Mario?

I keep bringing this up because of the broken promises and empty dreams that he had my family believe in. Well, I would tell you that nothing has been done between the both of them. Mr. Williams has been coming to our meetings when we had them; and if they were that concerned about the death of Patrick Hernandez, Mario Young, Stack Bundles, and the rest that were killed, something should have been done after my nephew was killed.

This is all talk but no action from the both of them. Pastor Evans stated that he was solidified in the belief that the NAACP was going to do something, but what has Pastor Evans done? They are fighting over something that is nonsense instead of coming together and trying to work together and come to some kind of solution to this situation that is happening with our youth.

Pastor Evans talked about praying that the NAACP would get involved with this, but Pastor Evans got involved and after it got started, he stepped away from what he was doing. So I am saying don't call the kettle black; and if you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen.

Pastor Evans, what will you accomplish if you take over the NAACP? More broken promises and empty dreams and put families through nonsense. Mr. Williams and Pastor Evans are nothing but all talk and no action. Pastor Evans will show up for a few months and call your family for a few months, and after that it will stop. Mr. Williams does not do anything at all or get involved with the victim of the family. To me, none of them belong in the NAACP. It should be run by someone who will care and take action, which I see, that none of it matters to them.
