In fighting among sophisticated Negroes will cause a mess.—

Oh, come on! NAACP President and CEO Ben Jealous has to be trolling us. The same day that National Journal writer Ron Fournier incurred the wrath of the Twittersphere for daring to call President Obama “aloof,” Jealous informs us of the existence of “sophisticated Negroes”? Well, far from an uproar, Jealous’s tweet inspired widespread agreement. It must be nice to be free to tweet with that implied (D) next to your name.
We’re not sure, but it seems that Jealous has big plans for the future if the infighting can be set aside.
