Does the United States still need the NAACP?

During the chaos of the move, I read about the attack on the Tea Party by the NAACP.  My only thought is: Whisky Tango Foxtrot?! There is still a lot of black on black crime, there is still high unemployment in the same neighborhoods with the black on black crime and all the NAACP can do is attack Fiscal Conservatives?
Racism sucks.  Let's be blunt: If you only choose friends, business partners or customers by the pigment of their skin, go away.  And that includes those African-Americans who only support African Americans.  The knife strikes both ways, to deny it would be to blind (not color blind). 
Now, let me repeat what the Tea Partiers stand for: Fiscal Conservatism.  I've been to three Tea parties here in Los Angeles, and what did I see? People of different hues coming together to stand against an encroaching Government taking away their financial freedom
Are there bad apples? Of course. 
But should the Tea Partiers be defined by them? Hell, no.  Not unless Liberals want to play "Guilt by Association," And since July 3, 2009, we on the Right are ready to play the same game.
Now, what is the role of the NAACP?
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's mission statement is thus:
"The mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate race-based discrimination.
"Vision Statement
"The vision of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race."

Yet, when Michael Steele was attacked, where was the NAACP?
When Justice Thomas has been attacked, where was the NAACP?
How about Condi Rice or Colin Powell?
And most importantly, Kenneth Gladney?

The POTUS is part African American, thus the NAACP has broken through.  Does the NAACP  really need to exist anymore? 

If the NAACP is working hand in hand with the Democratic Party, they should lose their Tax exempt status. Period.  All a Republican majority House and Senate Oversight Committee has to do is look back during the 2008, 2004 and 2000 elections to see whether the NAACP deserves it's tax status.  Game, set, match.

The NAACP can still be smart, they can actually pick up the phone or email a Tea partier and ask what they stand for.  Or the NAACP can stand up for a Conservative African Americans. Or the NAACP can focus on ending black on black crime in high unemployment neighborhoods by opening the discussion to TWO political parties in those neighborhoods. 

Power is nor control over one party in America, it is the power to have your agenda addressed by BOTH parties. Why else do you think that banks and Israel are mentioned no matter whomever is in charge? People in both camps charging the discussion.

More ideas means more solutions to problems. Unless Chairman Jealous of the NAACP likes the status quo?

My question: Does the NAACP still need to exist? Why or why not?
