Barber Accused of Racism

My thoughts exactly.  About time someone called him out.

In an email obtained by ABC11, Republican state Representative Michael Speciale of New Bern takes aim at North Carolina NAACP President William Barber – accusing him of “racist diatribes” and a “race-baiting attitude.”

The email was in response to a statement mailed to lawmakers by the NAACP January 23 accusing Republicans who support a bill that would require voters have a picture ID to cast a ballot of engaging in an “obvious tactic to suppress the votes of minorities” who are more likely to vote for Democrats.

In his response, Representative Speciale calls the NAACP message “as insulting a diatribe as I have seen in years” and chides Barber for tarnishing the proud history of the NAACP.
