    NAACP Legal Defense Fund director-counsel Janai Nelson said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “All In” that Middle District of Florida U.S. Judge Kimball Mizelle’s ruling against public transportation requiring passengers to mask is “reckless.” Guest anchor Ayman Mohyeldin asked, “Should the DOJ wait for the CDC or be more forceful in appealing it regardless of what the CDC thinks in terms of public health concerns at this moment with masks?”

    During and after the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the white 18-year-old accused of murdering two white men and injuring another, one could hardly keep track of the insanity based on falsehoods recklessly peddled by media and politicians. In Chicago, the Rev. Jesse Jackson marched in the front line of a group of protesters where some chanted, "When black lives are under attack, what do we do?" Black lives under attack? Rittenhouse is white, as were the two men he shot dead and the man he injured. In September 2020, presidential candidate Joe Biden posted a video that included a picture...

    The "not guilty" verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial has really brought out the worst in the already unhinged left. We keep saying it, because it keeps on happening. On Friday night, during "The Last World with Lawrence O'Donnell," fill-in host Zerlina Maxwell discussed the verdict with Derrick Johnson, the president and CEO of the NAACP. During the show, Johnson claimed the verdict was "worse than the Emmett Till trial." "This was worst than the Emmitt till trial. This was worse than so many trials where we know for a fact individuals committed murder and yet they were not brought...

    HOUSTON -- The NAACP sent a letter to the players' associations in five professional sports Thursday asking players to reconsider signing with teams in Texas because of recent laws passed in the state. In a two-page letter signed by NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson that was sent to the MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL and WNBA players' associations, the organization pointed to recent laws on abortions, voting rights and mask mandates during the coronavirus pandemic as reasons to avoid joining teams in Texas.

    The NAACP is calling on professional athletes to reconsider signing with professional sports teams in Texas to protest the state's controversial voting and abortion laws. In an open letter to the unions for the NBA, NFL, WNBA, MLB, and NHL, the NAACP urged athletes to consider the use of their platforms and positions as role models for kids across the country. "Over the past few months, legislators in Texas have passed archaic policies, disguised as laws, that directly violate privacy rights and a woman's freedom to choose, restrict access to free and fair elections for Black and brown voters, and...

    The U.S. Supreme Court has delivered two major rulings that are favorable to police officers. The nation’s highest court overruled two decisions and handed law enforcement big wins in a pair of cases over qualified immunity. Republicans overwhelmingly support qualified immunity, arguing that if it was taken away officers would be subject to lawsuits for nearly every difficult call they are faced with on the job. This would make it nearly impossible to recruit or retain good officers, they say. The justices reversed two federal appeals courts that allowed excessive force lawsuits to proceed against officers in separate cases in...

    AUSTIN (KXAN/Texas Tribune) — The Texas chapter of the NAACP, along with the civil rights organization’s University of Texas at Austin chapter and a group of anonymous students, has filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights alleging UT Austin is creating a “hostile environment” for Black students by continuing to play the “The Eyes of Texas” alma mater song at university events. The complaint, filed Friday morning, alleges Black students have been denied full benefits of Longhorn student life, because the song is an official part of the university, “despite its racially offensive origin,...

    The president of the Utah NAACP chapter became the latest to denounce the controversial stance taken by Black Lives Matter Utah that the American flag is a "symbol of hatred" and anyone who flies it is a racist. "The NAACP does not agree with that statement and rejects the idea that flying the American flag is a racist message," Jeanetta Williams, president of the NAACP Utah State Conference, said in a prepared statement released late Saturday. "The flag stands for all the people who have lived and served to bring about the best of the American experience, that all people...

    Both the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus were silent on Monday after news broke that Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) defended his membership to an elite, all-white beach club. Breitbart News reached out to both the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus for comment regarding Whitehouse’s extra-curricular activities. Neither organization responded. Whitehouse, who decried systemic racism following the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, has frequented Bailey Beach Club for decades . While the 124-year-old club can’t legally mandate its members be “all white,” its lack of diversity was first documented back in 2003 in the...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — NAACP, state and local officials on Wednesday denounced what they called continued racism at an Amazon warehouse construction site in Connecticut where eight nooses have been found within a month, despite additional security measures added last weekend. The latest noose was found at the site in Windsor on Wednesday morning, the day of a scheduled meeting between workers and NAACP officials about safety and security, said Connecticut NAACP President Scot X. Esdaile. “We have a serious problem in America and it hasn’t gone away,” Esdaile said. “It's deplorable. It’s sickening. It’s a sick mindset that Black...

    BEDFORD — The district attorney in Bedford County has brought dozens of charges against a man for firing a 12-gauge shotgun at civil rights marchers last August, striking one in the face and endangering 19 others. The announcement from Lesley Childers-Potts came just days after Spotlight PA and The Tribune-Democrat learned the prosecutor had been given the results of a State Police investigation into the shooting in early March — and just one day after the news organizations asked why she hadn’t acted on it. Terry Myers, 51 of Schellsburg, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a...

In addition, the school’s president, Miles K. Davis, told the Chronicle of Higher Education that he had in fact made a comment about the size of Jewish noses to Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, the professor who was fired this week. Davis had previously denied making the comment, and an investigation into him had concluded based...

    The NAACP sent a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on March 9 urging the league not to negotiate a new TV deal with broadcast partner Fox. The civil rights organization condemned Fox News for promoting "hatred, bigotry, lies and racism" and implored the league to not fund the network by signing a contract with its sister company. The letter signed by president and CEO Derrick Johnson applauds "the NFL’s indications of support for social justice" while condemning Fox News' efforts "to inflame racial division and propagate an unstable political climate."
