Missouri to be avoided

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass



A travel advisory is being circulated in the State of Missouri by the NAACP warning Black drivers of the dangers of traveling through that state. 

The civil rights organization almost never gets it right, but are being applauded for making the bold move amid traffic stop disparities and police shootings of unarmed motorists.  The advisory is marks the first time the NAACP has ever made a point of providing a specific caveat for a state warning of racists attacks and discrimination. 

This line of public service follows other organizations who found it necessary to offer warnings to non-whites in different areas of the country.   Post the most recent presidential election, travel warnings have appeared both domestically and abroad.   Following the election of Donald Trump the Turkish government thinks that the United States isn’t the safest travel destination for its citizens.

Despite the United States being born a slave state, this trend is unprecedented. 

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens signed new legislation to make it more difficult for victims of workplace and housing discrimination in court.  The law forces victims suing for discrimination to prove that a protected group such as race, gender, age is “the motivating factor” for disciplinary action from an employer.   You would literally need an admission of guilt of the offender to sue for damages in a Missouri court of law. 

Nimrod Chapel Jr. president of the Missouri NAACP said, “Discrimination is being legalized in Missouri.”   He continued, “The advisory is for people to be aware, and warn their families and friends and co-workers of what could happen in Missouri People need to be ready, whether its bringing bail money with them, or letting relatives know they are traveling through the state.”
