The NAACP’s University of Maryland chapter recently gave an award to student Andrew Mayton, who has a very troubling history of radical public statements. 

The “W.E.B. Du Bois Award” was given to Mayton for his work leading the Asian American Student Union.

Now before we get into Mayton’s comments, everyone should be reminded that young people can and do make mistakes. The purpose of this article is not to go after Andrew Mayton, and we would appreciate it if everyone reading this didn’t either. Rather, all should call out the contemporary NAACP for the kind of attitudes it’s encouraging.

The NAACP has become a political organization, as opposed to the civil rights organization it used to be. As an example, they were torn apart (by media members such as Anderson Cooper no less) for their biased and politically motivated report on the Tea Party in 2010.

The NAACP should know better, and should be careful of the individuals it chooses to endorse.

Granted, one of these is a retweet, but it is in line with everything else you can find on his Twitter timeline. He supports militant radicalism, class warfare, and “a language” police can understand. I wonder what he means by that?

The University of Maryland recently screened American Sniper. Like at other schools across the country, the campus left lost their minds over the event. Mayton is no different:

american sniper

brown dem rep

confederacy kyle

god country family

He says that like it’s a bad thing. I understand that the far left hates God, and country too. But family as well? Supporting family is now a conservative value I guess. Think about that the next time you enter a voting booth.

In regards to his theory over the use of the word “yanks”……… I don’t know how to make him sound more ridiculous. 

But here’s a more ridiculous statement:

terrorism evil

 

“Evil”. Yeah it’s crazy for the movie to insinuate that.

It’s always fun when there are feuds within the radical left:

trotskyists

white iso

stalin israel

Good job NAACP! Who is the next recipient? Zombie Mao?

Update: A previous version of this article omitted the two tweets from his “alternative” account above. They have been added.

    What an impressive award. A piece of paper in a $3 frame.

  • A valid point,poorly discussed

    This article didn’t mention several hate-filled tweets that Mr. Mayton has sent out; perhaps most notedly referring to a picture of President Loh with PHA women as the President meeting with the “KKK”.

    While I disagree with him on much of what he says, and perhaps have concern of other motives, I think several of the tweets shown here are quite valid and not unreasonable examples of self-expression. I have met his co-president and the AASU is obviously a positive organization for many on this campus. So, while I hope these gaps of understanding are filled in the future and filled with more positive energy than hate, I understand his presence has been seen as a positive by some on this campus.

        Not quite, Andrew. You always were overly concentrated on the Greek life people in the room, so I shouldn’t be surprised with your guess.
        Thanks for the passive aggressive response though.

    @andrewmayton:disqus was honored for the NAACP Du Bois award for serving as an indisputably, undeniably, passionate and leading advocate for freedom and equality at the University of Maryland. This individual has been on the forefront of every major effort on campus for the promotion of social justice and the advancement of communities including but not limited to Asian, African, Latin, and Middle Eastern Americans, LGBTQ individuals, and campus laborers. In this country, in this day, as black and brown Americans are being targeted, murdered, ignored, marginalized, disenfranchised, etc, at a rate that is stagnant if not increasing, today’s new activist is unsatisfied and un-calm. As should be expected, today’s activist Is in fact radical and Does call for revolution. Andrew Mayton represents today’s unsatisfied activist, and the NAACP-UMCP remains proud of our honorable recipient.

      so, uh, who exactly is targeting and murdering black and brown people?

      93% of black murder victims are murdered by other blacks.

      stop whining.

      If y’all knew anything about W.E.B. DuBois, you would understand why AASU (not solely Andrew) received the award.
