NAACP Issues First Travel Advisory to U.S. State Over Racist Attacks

The alert was reportedly issued in response to incidents and legislation affecting local minorities.

 The NAACP has issued a national travel advisory to people of color planning to visit Missouri because of discrimination and racist attacks, the Kansas City Star is reporting. It’s the first time the civil rights organization has ever issued a warning of this type, the Star notes.

Missouri was reportedly chosen as the first state due to new legislation that makes discrimination lawsuits more difficult to win, as well as a significant history of racial disparities in traffic enforcement; a recent attorney general’s report shows that, since the year 2000, black drivers continue to be 75 percent more likely to be pulled over while driving in Missouri than white people are.

The NAACP also cited the death of Tory Sanders, a young black man from Tennessee who took a wrong turn while traveling and ended up dying in jail, despite the fact that he hadn’t been accused of a crime.          :snip:
