It has literally come to this.
The NAACP is making history but not in a good way. With the Senate Bill 43 passing in Missouri, the uptick of discrimination between people of color and the police is speculated to go up.
CNN reports that the civil rights organization that has kept their eyes on Ferguson, MO since the Michael Brown shooting is afraid we will see more of our people being discriminated or worst.
“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.”
The advisory was issued after Senate Bill 43 which makes it more difficult for employees to prove their protected class, like race or gender, directly led to unlawful discrimination was signed into law.
The NAACP is calling the bill the “Jim Crow Bill.” Back in 2016, it was reported that black people were 75% more likely to get stopped by police in Missouri compare to white people.
