Interim President of the NAACP Derrick Johnson sent out a travel warning for Missouri – the first-ever. Travel at your own risk, he warned all the political identity groups adopted by Democrats.
The advisory tells travelers to exercise “extreme caution” in Missouri because they could be subject to “discrimination and harassment,” CBS News reported.
The reason for the alarm is Senate Bill 43 which was signed into the law by the governor. CNN claims it makes it more difficult for employees to prove they are a protected class, like race or gender.
Johnson calls it a Jim Crow law.
The problem with these discrimination laws is everyone is a protected class who is a Democrat except for white men, especially older white men.
In reality, the bill is not a Jim Crow law, it stiffens requirements for discrimination lawsuits.
“What SB43 did was it brought Missouri standards in line with the Federal Government and 38 other states, so now Missouri is using the same standards that are used to analyze claims under the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” Missouri Governor Eric Greitens said.
The governor said he has a great relationship with the NAACP and looks forward to continuing working with them.
As an aside, another story of interest on CNN today is about Sam Clovis, President Donald Trump’s nominee to be the Department of Agriculture’s chief scientist.
CNN wrote the following and it wasn’t meant to be complimentary: he [Clovis] maintained a now-defunct blog for years in which he accused progressives of “enslaving” minorities, called black leaders “race traders” [Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson come to mind], and labeled former President Barack Obama a “Maoist” with “communist” roots.
