Brother Marshall, 72
Retired bus driver, Miami
He got voted in. If the brothers voted him in, he must be allright. God created all men. All men are created equal.
Lesley Gooden, 42
Avon representative, Miami
“As long as they represent for good, I’m good. If not, he got to keep going.”
Charles Rackley, 62
Maybe they need to change their name from the National Advancement Association of the Colored People to the Association of All People, then they would cover all bases. If he is for the right reason, which is equality for all people, as well as Black then, I guess it’ll be alright.
LaDonna McNealy, 53
Licensed practical nurse, Miami
“Regardless of the race and religion, I’m for it. I really don’t care about him being white, I’m just surprised that he is. I’m glad someone else other than Blacks are willing to help us.”
Maurice Gilchrist, 44
If they are going to stand there, do the job and represent Black folks. That’s good. Then color doesn’t make a difference, as long as they’re doing the right job.
Synovia Gibbs, 53
Community advocate, Perrine area
“NAACP has been doing a lot for us for a lot of years. That president may vote out anything they have for us. I’m not against white folks, but sometimes they will do for us, sometimes they won’t.”
