4. This author claims Romney set out to get booed at the NAACP as a pander to his "white" base.
i put white in quotes because it is what the author said. However, getting booed while addressing people at the NAACP is not a pander to whites. i cannot imagine, for example, that it would help Rommney win over Bernie Sanders. Setting out to get booed as the NAACP might be a pander to anti-black racists of any hue, though.

Not saying that is what Romney did. Just saying the author of the Daily Beast article at this link said it.

See also this New York Magazine article on Romney's saying that the NAACP wants "free stuff" before Romney even went to the NAACP.
