The executive director of the Virginia NAACP did not like Sen. Jim Webb’s (D-VA) Wall Street Journal op-ed questioning the need for exclusively race-based affirmative action. (Titled “Diversity and the Myth of White Privilege,” it acknowledges a debt to the descendants of slaves but innocently points out that not all whites are very privileged.)
King Salim Khalfani of the NAACP’s Virginia Conference asked Webb in a letter if he was “pandering to the divisive, conservative, Tea Bagger types whose votes you will need in 2012” and told the Virginia senator that he and Rand Paul are “kith and kin.” Though Webb is greeted as a “fellow member of the NAACP,” Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Bill O’Reilly were also thrown into the mix to keep Webb company.
