NAACP: Travel To Missouri At Your Own Risk

This is so sad.

Filosofa's Word

You may have missed this story, for it was but a very short story … more of a blurb, really … in both The Washington Post and the New York Times, each of whom simply copied the Associated Press release, word for word.  I found the full story in the Kansas City Star along with links to verify and fill in the gaps.

The AP release:

NAACP Delegates Back Advisory Urging Caution in Missouri

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AUG. 1, 2017, 12:21 P.M. E.D.T.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The head of the Missouri NAACP says the national organization is backing a travel advisory urging caution in Missouri over concerns about whether civil rights will be respected.

Missouri NAACP President Rod Chapel says national delegates voted last week to adopt a travel advisory that the state chapter issued in June. Chapel says the national board will consider ratification in October.

Lady Liberty, New York Harbor …. ‘A Poem by Brad Geyer …. Global Citizen …. “!!

It Is What It Is

LADY LIBERTY 

Watch slam poet send an emotional message as he tears into Trump’s executive order on Muslims and immigration.

Immigrants of many countries are having a very rough time now.

In a country very well know for arising from a melting pot of immigrants, it’s not the norm to see this hatred, discrimination, racism and every thing else that has become the standards of the current administration.

Take a look.

This poem says it all!!
