NAACP Chair, Julian Bond Speaks Out Against NOM's Race Baiting

In response to the disclosure of the NOM Papers, which detail the hate group's plans to divide and conquer by exploiting homophobia in the African-American and Latino communities, veteran civil rights leader and NAACP Chairman, Julian Bond, released the following statement Tuesday, via HRC.
“NOM’s underhanded attempts to divide will not succeed if Black Americans remember their own history of discrimination. Pitting bigotry’s victims against other victims is reprehensible; the defenders of justice must stand together.”
Bond spoke at the National Equality March in Washington, DC in 2009, where he called on African-Americans to support LGBT Equality. I happened to pass him on the steps as he made his way to the podium that day. What an inspiring speaker.
