Kerry plays the race card, saying that Bush is the first president ever not to meet with the NAACP.

And that's a bad thing?

Seriously though, Kerry's sanctimonious line that he will "reach out" to minority and civil rights groups like the NAACP, as if that was a courageous thing for a Democrat to do, was laughable. The fact is, the NAACP has whored itself out to the Democratic party, and there was absolutely no reason for Bush to meet with a group that is actively dedicated to smearing him with false accusations (ie, the Byrd lynching in Texas). Meanwhile, Robert KKK. Byrd, the dottery old senator from West Virginia, is lauded by the NAACP and other civil rights groups, in spite of a past civil rights record that would make Strom Thurmond blush, were he still here. It's a shame that the modern civil rights movement has sold its soul to the Democratic party in exchange for political influence.
