The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
50 Years after Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed, Equality is still elusive to African Americans in this country. Blacks have made many economic and educational gains, but progress still falls short.
Despite the dramatic courtroom and congressional victories and all seemly advancements Blacks/African Americans have made, due to the historic inequalities that had resulted in unequal access to education and job opportunities, Blacks/African Americans continue to struggle in areas of economics, employment and education.
NAACP Statement on the Death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
NAACP is saddened over the death of Michael Brown in St. Louis. This is weeks after Eric Garner was killed by an New York Officer and the recent death of Ezell Ford in Los Angels at the hands of an LAPD officer. Yet the death's of these men only serve as reminders to many African Americans and minorities across the country that there life are meaningless. African-American men dying at the hands of those sworn to protect and serve the community. A Modern Day Lynching or will the Jim Crow-style justice that set Trayvon Martin’s killer free prevail once again. Are young men are the targets. Michael Brown was preparing to begin COLLEGE, and now his family is preparing to bury their child – all these young men lives were cut short in a tragic encounter with the police.
The NAACP will remain vigilant until accountability and justice are served for the countless individuals who lose their lives to misguided police practices throughout the country. Even as we call for accountability by those charged with protecting the community, we call on the community to act--collectively and calmly until we secure justice for the family of Michael Brown.
Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Michael Brown, Ezell Ford and Eric Garner. The NAACP is in St. Louis, working with the family, local NAACP leaders and other community leaders to bring justice to this case.
