NAACP criticized by GOP for ignoring Mia Love's Historic win

The historic win of the Haitian-America Mia Love to become the first Haitian-American in US Congress and also the First Black Woman elected as a GOP to congress has created some joy for her fans. However this win has also created some discomfort among some long standing organizations.

NAACP has been criticized by GOP for ignoring Mia Love's Historic win.

Republican official Raffi Williams is harshly criticizing the NAACP for not hailing the notable wins of Haitian-American Mia Love to a Republican seat in Congress, and African-American senator Tim Scott's Republican win for South Carolina.

Love is the first Haitian-American and woman senator-elect, and Scott the first African-American to win since Reconstruction.

Williams vented his frustration over the NAACP's snub by tweeting a number of times, complaining they ". . . won't celebrate black republicans."
