Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney will address the largest black civil rights group in the United States next month, the NAACP said Tuesday.
Romney, who squares off against President Barack Obama in November's election, will attend the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, set for July 7-12 in Houston, Texas.
Romney was invited to address the convention shortly after he clinched his party's presidential nomination last month, NAACP spokesman Derek Turner said.
The organization is also hoping Obama, the country's first African-American president, will attend the event. Both he and Senator John McCain addressed the NAACP when they were candidates for the presidency in 2008.
Romney's campaign confirmed he accepted the invitation to speak at the annual convention but provided no further details.
Turner told AFP he expects Romney to "address civil rights" during his speech, "as they are in line with our mission."

What a waste of time
If it wasn’t for quilt ridden whites the NAACP would have no relevance at all
No point in it. He's not black, and he's liberal, but not as liberal as the current turd in the white house, so he can talk until he turns purple, and all they'll do is try and embarrass him. Oh and did I mention that he's not black and they're all about looting the rest of America to the benefit of blacks?
Democrats are socialists who are still ashamed of saying it out-loud.
Socialists are communists that still think people will knuckle under voluntarily.
Did you see this?
In my wildest dreams I cannot believe this is what the Republicans in our Congress are waiting on.
Amp it up and call Hussein the “White African”.
MR is starting to smell like Ace McCain.
I’m black for the opportunities!
Yeah, what’s the point? Kind of like uncle o’bie setting up a meeting with David Duke and some of his pals all dressed up in those white tuxedoes. But, I guess you have to pander for appearance sake. Not that he’ll win anybody over. What’s next a sit down with the CBC? You know those tolerant clowns in DC that make decisions for all of us! WTF?
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years and dang proud of it.
I wonder if he’ll speak in ghetto dialect like Obama does?
It’s a good move. Everyone there isn’t voting for you anyway. You go, pander to them and promise them jobs, education, and other opportunities.
When you are elected, you ignore all of it because they didn’t vote for you in the first place. Elections have consequences.
It is a good move, IMHO!!! But....the pandering approach is th absolute wrong move. Romney, should grab the bull by the horns and demand that American Blacks honestly look how the have fared under Obama and their CBC. Simple, are you better of today then when you elected Obama?
American Blacks are at a crossroads, and they better damn well ante up to reality. Romney should stress freedom, liberty, education, opportunity, Americanism and total Black assimilation into general American society!!! Latinos are doing it, Asians are doing it. Blacks remain on the Obama & CBC slave plantation, adrift at sea!!!
And....if he, Romney, gets heckled or booed, so much the better. Obama has used and abused these people, and someone has to tell them the truth!!! Poor fools are adrift at sea and....they do not have a clue!!!
mitt is worse... mcnasty never tried to hide the progressive that he is.
They are going to purge themselves right out of a party.
Eff the kowtowing. It has never done any good, under any circumstance.
Starting to? The guy is a liberal and a panderer, through and through. He's just staying true to form. I don't understand why people continue to be shocked when that happens.
I agree with you... I was just trying to make a point to those that still believe the BS.
