Earlier this week the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ( lost another president -- their second in about 3 years. The NAACP was founded in 1909 to fight the USA's racist infrastructure but today they are clearly handicapped by their own infrastructure since the organization is governed by a sixty four (64) member board of directors. Ask yourself if you would want 64 bosses like the NAACP president has - that is crazy corporate governance!!

Beyond this basic management challenge I want to offer the NAACP some advice as they conduct a search for a new president --

1.) Keep in mind that the world has changed dramatically since 1909 -- the Negro Baseball League does not exist anymore having been replaced by an "enlightened" Major League Baseball which is dominated by highly paid black/African- Americans.

2.) The word "colored" includes brown, red, and yellow skin so given the huge demographic changes in the USA's population perhaps it is time for the NAACP to hire a well known Hispanic/Latino personality.

New world - new thinking,
