NAACP travel advisoryLate last week, I got a pretty disturbing news alert from CNN. Here’s the email, which links to the main story: “The NAACP issued its first-ever state travel advisory — for Missouri. The organization’s warning sends a strong message to people of color traveling through the state: Go at your own risk.

The travel advisory comes after the state passed a law that Missouri’s NAACP conference says allows for legal discrimination. The warning cites several discriminatory incidents in Missouri, included as examples of ‘looming danger’ in the state.

‘Individuals traveling in the state are advised to travel with extreme CAUTION,’ the advisory warns. ‘Race, gender and color based crimes have a long history in Missouri.’

Here’s hoping everyone stays safe. Here’s more on the news:

    “First ever”

    So it’s a fake thing they invented to get the press in a tizzy. Didn’t issue one after Michael Brown was shot, but by god, they elected a Republican governor! It’s time to act!

    Get real Johnny, The President resigning was about 2 years ago, and they rely on it
    to issue a WARNING that gets notice on your travel blog. The issue of basis for action in civil cases has always been left up to the states to set the standards. Maybe you should stop relaying FAKE NEWS (fear) from one race against another to stop scaring people. Usually good tips, but over the edge on this hunk of crap
