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.

@benjealous You speak truth; yet it seems that’s the one thing most Negroes are good at–in fighting.

You said a mouth full right there brother Ben. You ain’t lying either. People need to hear the truth! @benjealous

@benjealous Everytime. It has to stop in order for us to progress as a people.

EVERYtime and ALL day! #GotToDoBettet RT @benjealous: In fighting among sophisticated Negroes will cause a mess.

@benjealous Can you expound on that? Are you speaking about a specific situation or a universal idea?

We’re not sure, but it seems that Jealous has big plans for the future if the infighting can be set aside.

The only people who can win the Civil War this time is us–we must build a machine to pass state legislation. #NAACP
