FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington (Feb 6, 2013) The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is falsely accusing The Radiance Foundation and its chief creative officer, Ryan Bomberger of “trademark infringement” over an ad campaign that exposes the NAACP’s pro-abortion position.
In response, Radiance and Bomberger, who is black, has asked a federal court to declare that the First Amendment protects their exercise of free speech and that their speech does not infringe on any of the NAACP’s trademarks or other rights. The lawsuit does not seek any damages.
Bomberger has written for several years about the NAACP’s pro-abortion actions, satirically referring to the organization as the “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People.”
“It is ironic that a black man is being sued by the nation’s oldest civil rights group for exercising his most basic civil right—the freedom of speech,” said Bomberger. “This threat of legal action from the NAACP is nothing more than a multi-million dollar organization’s attempt to bully someone who’s simply telling the truth. Our inner-cities are crumbling, two-parent married families barely exist, 72.3 percent of our children are born into homes without fathers, and the NAACP wants to silence me for pointing out its support of abortion.”
Planned Parenthood co-sponsors the NAACP’s annual conventions, and the NAACP has shown its support of the nation’s largest abortion chain by frequently defending it.
Former NAACP President Julian Bond once spoke at a dinner for NARAL and praised the fact that black women have high abortion rates.
Sixty percent of viable black pregnancies are aborted in New York City, the home of NARAL and Planned Parenthood. Statistics show that more black babies are aborted in New York City than are born alive: 1,489 black babies are aborted for every 1,000 born alive.
To educate the public, Bomberger, an adoptee and adoptive father, created the www.TooManyAborted.com abortion awareness campaign. The public ad campaign was the first to expose the eugenic racism that gave birth to Planned Parenthood and the tragic alliance that exists between the nation’s oldest civil rights group and the nation’s abortion giant.
Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorney Charles M. Allen with the Glen Allen, Va. firm Goodman, Allen & Filetti PLLC filed Friday in U.S. District Court in The Radiance Foundation v. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People for the Eastern District of Virginia, Norfolk Division.
“The Radiance Foundation has no intentions of being silenced by those who disagree with the facts,” Bomberger declares.

NAACP: National Association for the Abortion of Colored People
by Ryan Bomberger | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com |
What better way for an out-of-touch liberal organization to celebrate itself than in the land of make believe? The NAACP’s 44th Annual Image Awards honor black imagery churned out by often racist, anti-Christian, perpetually sexist, violent and pornographic Hollywood. Just skim the list of nominees and one is left with an overwhelming feeling: emptiness.
Django Unchained, with its graphic violence and 100 plus uses of the racially denigrating epithet, “nigger”, gets praise and nominations from the NAACP. “Lincoln”, a powerful film of historical substance, completely eliminates the most potent influence in Lincoln’s ideology and evolution on slavery—Frederick Douglass. There’s no protest from the NAACP, just a nomination.
The nation’s oldest civil rights organization revels in a distorted reflection of who black Americans are, the struggles faced and the real world around us. Though they will dress up their liberal causes in bright lights, filtered lenses and entertaining performances, the NAACP Image Awards worship a false image.
The NAACP’s selective, and often feigned, outrage on a myriad of issues is befitting of a multiple personality disorder, with its stronger personality being one that embraces all things liberal, most things socialistic, and nothing pro-life. They’ll beat the drums of economic, social and environmental “justice” while over 360,000 black babies, annually, never get a chance at one of the few Constitutional rights that actually exist—the right to Life.
At a time when 72.3% of black children are born into homes without fathers and (in some places like Philadelphia) 50% of viable black pregnancies end in abortion one would think protecting future generations would become a national emergency for this historic organization. Single female-led homes are the norm in the black community. Children who grow up in these homes are 5 times more likely to live in poverty than those in two-parent married homes. Yet, these issues are non-existent on the organization’s website. And all the NAACP can do in regards to marriage is push gay marriage—hardly the solution to crumbling, impoverished families in our inner-cities. What about equality for these beautiful children living without the economic, educational and emotional security of both a mother and a father?
The NAACP would rather sleep with Planned Parenthood, the urban staple and instigator of sexual irresponsibility, regardless of what people say. The affair has been going on for decades. The NAACP, despite denials, has publicly supported Planned Parenthood numerous times (here, here and here). It’s fought to prevent the abortion chain from being defunded while simultaneously fighting to ensure a massive influx of funding for its beloved ally (and annual convention sponsor) through Obamacare.
In fact, both organizations are part of the nation’s largest coalition of “civil rights” groups, The Leadership Conference. It was co-founded by famed civil rights figure, A. Philip Randolph, who was the President of the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. He also happened to shill for Planned Parenthood back in 40s. Today, the NAACP, Planned Parenthood and a who’s who among pro-abortion groups are part of this “civil rights” collective. (The chair of The Leadership Conference just happens to be Judith Lichtman, the President of the rabidly pro-abortion National Partnership for Women and Families.)
Planned Parenthood, gay marriage, HIV/AIDS initiatives, and demonizing the GOP are far more important to the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People than the devastating reality that black babies are aborted at staggering levels. Black babies are aborted 6 times more frequently (in NYC) than white babies: 1,448 are aborted for every 1,000 that are born alive as compared to 244 white babies aborted for every 1,000 born alive (all losses are a tragedy).
The National Association for the Abortion of Colored People has no moral ground to stand upon, just quick sand oozing with the blood of those most discriminated against. The NAACP’s covert and overt support of Planned Parenthood negates any other human rights they purport to defend.
If they can’t show any concern for the most basic civil right stripped away before birth, how can they convince the American public that they’re dedicated to rights post-birth? Why should anyone care about those black lives that the NAACP is so willing to throw away in exchange for political prominence?
It’s not “rights” the NAACP is pursuing, but the Right (Senator Tim Scott, Judge Janice Rogers Brown, Allen West, The Radiance Foundation) in a venomous campaign to alter history to suit their allegiance to liberalism. Mainstream media has no spine or is complicit in the NAACP’s cause-du-jour. Whether it’s “dirty coal”, anti-charter school teachers’ unions, legalizing pot, or faux voting suppression crimes, the real crime is that news outlets never scrutinize the organization for its false claims, outrageous policies and destructive actions.
And all the while, poverty, unemployment, poor educational outcomes, fatherlessness, STD and abortion rates remain exponentially high in the black community. As our TooManyAborted.com initiative has shown, today’s NAACP is a tragic example of civil rights gone wrong.
But on stage in Tinsel Town, all is shiny and in perfect condition. All blemishes are hidden, each word controlled by pre-approved scripts and camera angles show only pre-determined perspectives. Perhaps they should take the show on the road, let’s say a few miles south in LA to Compton. The NAACP could let America see how much it’s truly done for urban America.
But that wouldn’t be good for their image.
