Alston Loses NAACP Presidency

I planned to write tonight about Skip Alston's unsuccessful run for NC NAACP president. It turns out two of the best bloggers in Greensboro have already addressed this topic.

A good friend of mine who has found himself in opposition to Skip more than once (and who has the juice to have stopped Skip in his tracks more than once) describes Skip as a hustler. I think that description sums up Skip pretty well.

Skip Alston is undeniably bright, but he has consistently failed to use his smarts and influence to the benefit of his constituents or his city. The sad part is that if he were the leader he could be, he would have more power than he could ever dream and make a lasting positive difference in Greensboro.
