Who wants to break it to him?
A white supremacist is getting dragged on social media after suggesting there needs to be a “WAACP.”
Preston Wiginton, a member of the so-called “alt-right,” recently defended his decision to invite white nationalist leader of the “alt-right” movement Richard Spencer to speak at Texas A&M University in December.
Speaking to the university’s newspaper “The Battalion,” Wiginton pulled the “reverse racism” card, saying, “If we look at the NAACP, black people have the right to have that. Why can’t white people have a WAACP?”
So, NAACP stands for “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.”
But Wiginton seems to think the “N” in NAACP stands for “Negro.” One can only imagine what he thinks the “AACP” stands for. A “White Association for the Advancement of Colored People” would actually be a pretty good idea, though.
Needless to say, Wiginton’s obvious ignorance was thoroughly called out on Twitter:

Turn this on its head. Let's actually go ahead and form a WAACP: White Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Bye, Wiginton! https://t.co/udbl0jdne1

@AihsenatElocin my god. That's a ripe combination of ignorant and unbelievably offensive.

In the meantime, Richard Spencer is still scheduled to speak at the university on Dec. 6.
