NAACP Executive Director Benjamin L. Hooks criticized the Reagan Administration for fighting affirmative action and said confirmation of the President’s choice of William Bradford Reynolds for associate attorney general would be “an insult” to minorities. Reynolds is currently assistant attorney general and head of the civil rights division.
