NAACP: Mel Gibson

'Out of Control Racist'

7/1/2010 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. Chapter of the NAACP just reacted to Mel Gibson using the "N" word in an explosive fight with Oksana Grigorieva ... calling Mel "an out of date and out of control racist."

0701_naacp_mel_EX_TMZ_01
Leon Jenkins, President of the L.A. NAACP tells TMZ it's unfortunate a man "who has made his millions off of women, African-Americans and Jews harbor such racist, sexist, and anti-semitic feeling against people who have admired and respected him for decades."

Jenkins says "An apology is insufficent given his history of racism, sexism and anti-semitism."  Jenkins adds, "No amount of words will change his image as an out of date and out of control racist."

Jenkins does end, however, with this:  "Only a sustained period of positive acts can his legacy be redeemed."

What a loser. He's going to get EXACTLY what he deserves...that being the END OF HIS CAREER.

If ANYONE supports him or his movies from this point forward is as big a loser has GIBSON himself. What a disgusting PIG he is.

I'm not defending Mel, but I hate it when the NAACP tries to jump on everything. Hey National COLORED PEOPLE Association, stop being f-king hypocrites!!!!!!! Why don't you tell the "Colored People" to stop using the "N-Word"?!?! It can't be "racist" when blacks still call each other the "N-Word". Double Standard, much?

This is so stupid. Let me get this straight. Any black person can go around saying "******" on their rap records, in the streets or where ever they please. But the second a white guy uses it, he's a f'n racist? I call B*ll**** on this.
Oh and the NAACP is a f'n joke as well :)

Well, I think Mel was just looking out for his wife, who he loved. Everybody knows that if you are a beautiful sexy white woman and go out dressed too sexy then surely you will be raped by a pack of ******s. Everybody knows that ******s roam the streets in packs, just looking for sexy white women dressed sexy so they can rape them. That's all ******s do all day, they don't work or watch tv they just roam streets looking for cute white women. So mel was right to look out for his wife and protect her from the ******s.

Stupid mel gibson will NEVER be redeemed, what a total a-hole. And the NAACP is a great organization, founded in 1909 when WHITE people called non-whites colored! Some of you dimwits & Mel-lovers need to educate yourselves, if that's at all possible.

I think this is so crazy, I am offended by all the rap songs out that call white people names. Who is gonna stand up for me. Does Jesse Jackson even have a job other than bitch about white people? He needs to use that mouth of his for a good cause.

Well when the NAACP starts identifying Jesse Jackson, Al Sharton, AG Eric Holder, The Church of Islam Louie "Calypso" Farrakhen, The Black Panther Party, La Raza,and Barak "The White Policeman Was Wrong" Obama as the rasicst they are, I'll take them seriously. Mel needs to be given a pass becasue the NAACP continues to promote race hatred by supporting the likes of the Reverend Wright and Flagler. The NAACP long ago became irrelevant as nothing more than the extreme left wing of the democrat party. They only seem to support groups that preach get rid of whitey, promote white guilt, and do NOTHING but help ensalve the afro-american community to living off the government as its new "master". Sorry, but as a black man who lives in Oakland, all I can say is they "cause rascism and the government welfare state and government dependency.
