A white supremacist is getting toasted on social media after demanding that there needs to be a “WAACP.” Preston Wiginton, a follower 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 as we already know, NAACP stands for “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.” But since Wiginton seems to think the “N” in NAACP stands for “Negro,” one can only imagine what he thinks the “AACP” stands for.
But as far as I’m concerned, the “White Association for the Advancement of Colored People” has already been established. It’s called the KKK, the GOP, the Republican party, or whatever they want to call it.
But regardless, 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

@tressiemcphd gotta wonder what he thinks the, um, "N" stands for.

I agree with him. Why can't there be a White Association for the Advanced of Colored People? pic.twitter.com/HxlGgvpCUA
