According to author and Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli and her husband, Tom Borelli, black conservatives have been blacklisted from the NAACP’s national conferences for years. When the Borellis, who are employees of the conservative group FreedomWorks, attempted to pay for booth space at this year’s 104th National NAACP conference in Florida, they were told there was no room for them despite plenty of exhibit space remaining open.

The NAACP website states that the mission of the organization is to, “ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.” The objectives of the NAACP include ensuring “the political, educational, social, and economic equality of all citizens,” and removing “all barriers of racial discrimination through democratic processes.”

Mrs. Borelli has been an outspoken critic of the Obama administration and the Democratic Party. In March her book, Blacklash: How Obama and the Left Are Driving Americans to the Government Plantation, came out in paperback. –
