The NAACP and “Non-Economic Liberalism” By Dr. Ridgely A. Mu’min Muhammad “Non-economic liberalism” was the philosophy guiding the activities of the early NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), which sought the social acceptance of Blacks instead of building our own business economy. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad warned Black people that Whites would never teach us “the science of business,” so “noneconomic liberalism” was a philosophy developed by the longtime white Jewish president of the NAACP, Joel Spingarn, for Black people’s social and political advancement without economic empowerment. This philosophy was in direct Volume 2, Issue 43 2011 contrast to the economic and political empowerment goals of the Niagara Movement, which was supplanted by the NAACP. When historians write about the NAACP, they make you think that it was the direct outgrowth of the Niagara Movement, which was secretly started by 29 Black men, who stated in their 1905 Declaration of Principles that they “especially complain against the denial of equal opportunities to us in economic life; in the rural districts of the South this amounts to peonage and virtual slavery; all over the South it tends to crush labor and small business enterprises…” These Black men demonstrated that Black people in the South strove toward The Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s brand of economic independence. In fact, by 1910 Black people had acquired over 16 million acres of land, mostly in the South, but Black landownership steadily declined after the advent of the NAACP, as this organization made the northern cities safer for Black people, thus facilitating the Great Migration(s) out of the South.

When W.E.B. Du Bois brought a white woman, Mary White Ovington, into the Niagara Movement, founding members like William Monroe Trotter broke away and set up the all-Black National Equal Rights League (NERL). Now this William Trotter was a brother who had received a bachelor’s degree in international banking from Harvard University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1895, and went on to earn his Masters from Harvard in 1896. However, he could never get a career started in the banking industry. Now, this same white woman, Mary White Ovington, a New York City news reporter, tracked Du Bois down in 1906, and later introduced him to 300 other white “liberals” in New York City, who then founded the NAACP in 1910. Du Bois was the only member of the original 29 founders of the Niagara Movement to join the white-dominated NAACP. These early white leaders of the NAACP included wealthy Jewish merchants, rabbis, economists, scholars and journalists and others, such as Jacob Schiff, Julius Rosenwald, Joel Spingarn, Rabbi Stephen Wise, all of whom hypocritically pushed “noneconomic liberalism.” For instance, one of these Jewish board members of the NAACP, Jacob Schiff, was a senior partner in the Wall Street banking house of Kuhn, Loeb and Company. Schiff also became the director of many other important corporations, including the National City Bank of New York, Equitable Life Assurance Society, Wells Fargo & Company, and the Union Pacific Railroad. He could have hired and mentored William Monroe Trotter, who had two degrees in international banking from Harvard, but, instead, Schiff watched over the shoulder of Du Bois as he edited the Crisis Magazine. Schiff decided not to help the man who could have led Black people to economic independence and power, but decided instead to

The NAACP and “Non-Economic Liberalism” steering Blacks away from economic development, which is a human right, toward some type of “social liberation.” Powerful Jewish forces used the NAACP to effectively change the social climate in the northern cities, which were opened up to the Blacks from the South, who in the “great migration” to the North left their farms behind to be the servants for the northern elite and their immigrant white factory workers from Europe. Southern white Jews had made their fortune off “sharecropped” cotton and a captured Black market in the South, and, having moved to the northern cities to set up their clothing factories, they brought their Black “virtual slaves” with them.

Therefore, “non-economic liberalism” was a product of white hypocrites and deceivers masquerading as friends to the Black man, who saw us coming down the intelligent road of economic development, but championed the enemies of our economic rise and herded us off into the wilderness and dead end of social liberation with their lower class of Whites.

How America Was Named Who is Amerigo Vespucci? Last month, we exposed the name of the continent of Africa as having originated among White Europeans. And this month, for all of you that rushed to change our name from Black to AfricanAmerican, we look at the origin of the name America. Amerigo Vespucci was an Italian associate of slave dealer Christopher Columbus. He started to explore the West shortly after Columbus made his “discoveries.” But Vespucci was not the first of the Europeans to visit or to explore the West, nor was his expedition particularly noteworthy – except that a mapmaker named Martin Waldseemüller, apparently unaware of the voyages of Columbus, made the following suggestion: “Today, these parts of the world [Europe, Africa, and Asia] are already completely explored, and a fourth continent discovered by Amerigo Vespucci. And as Europe and Asia have received feminine names, I see no reason why this new region should not be called Amerige, the land of Amerigo, or America, after the sagacious man who discovered it.”

So, on April 25, 1507, when these words are published in Waldseemüller’s book Cosmographiæ Introductio, the New World becomes known as America. Apparently, this is a good enough reason for White folks to call themselves Americans, but what about you, Black man and woman? Let’s look at what Vespucci did while on his expeditions. In 1498, his crew started to complain that the ships were becoming dangerous to navigate and that they wished to return to their homes in Castile. As Vespucci himself wrote: “Since the men were worn out from having been nearly a year at sea and were rationed down to six ounces of bread a day to eat and three small measures of water to drink, and the ships were becoming dangerously unseaworthy, the crew cried out that they wished to return to Castile to their homes and that they no longer desired to tempt fortune. Therefore we agreed to seize shiploads of the inhabitants as

slaves and to load the ships with them and turn toward Spain....The people were without clothing, timid and ignorant, and we did whatever we wished to do with them....After a long battle, having killed many, we put them to flight, and pursued them to a village, taking about two hundred and fifty prisoners. We burned the village, and returned victorious to the ships with our prisoners, leaving many killed and wounded on their side, while on ours not more than one died, and only twenty-two were wounded.” They set sail for Spain and arrived on the fifteenth day of October, 1498, “where we were well received, and found a market for our slaves.” Thirty-two of our Indian brothers and sisters were murdered at sea and the profits from the slave sale were divided between the fiftyfive “Christian men” who took part in the pillage. One author says that these 200 slaves were the lucky ones as the rest were subjected to the most brutal and heinous treatment ever seen in that hemisphere. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that we are Black. We need not assign names that divide or mis-identify us. If you agree with naming yourself after people that murdered your people, then you are an AfricanAmerican. But you will find no Jew named Hitler, and you will find no Muslim named for slavedealing murderers.

They have shown practically no interest in the Negro revival. They want to forget the Negro’s past, and they have attempted to conform to the behavior and values of the white community in the most minute detail. Because they want to gain the acceptance of whites, they have failed to play the role of responsible leaders in the Negro community, and are suffering from nothingness.
