Keep telling y’all about these civil rights negros…
“The NAACP’s surprise partnership with the opposition campaign, which is funded by real estate groups, has led to internal conflicts at one of the most well-known and oldest civil rights organizations in the US – and could damage Prop 10’s chances at the polls in November. Records and interviews reveal that:
Huffman’s consulting firm is on track to make $800,000 from a No on Prop 10 campaign.
The No on Prop 10 campaign has received millions of dollars from Blackstone Group, a major private equity firm that has acquired a huge residential real estate portfolio in California.
The NAACP recently sent out mailers that falsely listed two unions as opponents of Prop 10, including one that has endorsed the measure.
Huffman was defensive in an interview with the Guardian on Monday, saying: “I don’t apologize for it … I don’t see it as a conflict of interest.””
