Late 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:
- Here’s why the NAACP says Missouri is unsafe for minorities
- NAACP Warns Black Travelers To Use ‘Extreme Caution’ When Visiting Missouri
- NAACP issues official statewide travel warning for ‘racist’ Missouri
- NAACP issues its first statewide travel advisory, for Missouri
