White liberals parody Romney as too white in advance of NAACP speech

Liberal “media hub” The Message has released a satirical “behind the scenes” video in advance of Mitt Romney’s speech to the NAACP on Wednesday.

It’s certainly not the first time people have claimed Romney has a problem with black audiences. Race-baiters pounced almost immediately when the speech was announced last month. But as The Message’s video revives the attacks, people are asking not what the message is, but who.

Racial makeup of the Left group that made this video mocking Romney's whiteness: wait for it… ALL WHITE GUYS. http://t.co/AB1EyS5k

The producers of the video include former Media Matters for America president Eric Burns, former New York Times writer Andrew Zipern and Cliff Chenfeld of Razor & Tie Entertainment. In short, a group of white progressives has decided to call out not only the “extreme whiteness” of Romney but also prejudge the NAACP’s reception.

Of course the video wouldn’t be complete without a dig at Romney’s religion, so the fictitious advisor tells him to “go on out there and get all Mormon, Martin Luther King on them.”

Count us among the not amused.

$20 says that if this video were at all funny– had even 1 laugh– it'd sail past the media just fine. http://t.co/XOlhkBoL

Update: some helpful conservatives on Twitter have offered to stand in for The Message’s straw man, offering their take on #ThingsRomneyShouldSaytotheNAACP.
