RNC's Raffi Williams: NAACP Shows Liberal Bias in Midterms

By    |   Friday, 07 Nov 2014 05:50 PM

The NAACP showed its liberal bias this week by not acknowledging the African-American Republicans who were part of the big GOP victory in the midterm elections, says Raffi Williams, deputy press secretary for youth and conservative media for the Republican National Committee.

"They issued a statement about the historic midterm elections, but neglected to congratulate Tim Scott [of South Carolina], the first black person ever elected to be voted in the House and Senate. He's also the first black person elected in the Senate since Reconstruction in the South," Williams said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"They also failed to congratulate Mia Love [of Utah], the first black Republican woman ever elected to Congress, and they neglected to acknowledge Will Hurd, the first black Republican elected to the Congress from Texas.

"Those are the three easy things they could've done to acknowledge achievements of black Americans ... By neglecting to do so, they showed their partisan [bias] instead of being a nonpartisan organization whose goal is to advance the achievements … of all black people."

Williams said the NAACP is "meandering from the path they had in the '50s and '60s when they were so effective at achieving more racial equality" in the United States.

"They should be promoting that instead of ignoring it and pretending it's not happening," he said.
