So Jeanetta Williams and the NAACP say Patrick Byrne is not "sympathetic to minority issues" because of a comment taken out of context to make the Overstock.com founder look bad?

While the NAACP sits around doing absolutely nothing of real substance for people, Patrick Byrne is donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to help the boys and girls clubs of Utah. He gives poverty-stricken Africans jobs with his Worldstock.com program and has helped poor minorities get a good education. These are just a few of his charitable ventures. The man should be honored, not vilified.
