NAACP Issues Travel Warning for Blacks Thinking About Going to Missouri [VIDEO]

If you’re an African-American who’s on the road and traveling near Missouri, the NAACP has a warning for you: don’t go there. The group issued a travel advisory for the state, which is the first in the nation.

So why is Missouri receiving this dubious distinction? Why did the NAACP warn of “looming danger?” Did the Show-Me state just become North Korea?


Hardly. Rather, the NAACP is screaming “civil rights violations” because of a new law just signed by the governor. Missouri Senate Bill 43 makes it tougher to file discrimination suits against businesses. And while a reasonable person might think that an individual should have good evidence before filing a lawsuit, and that tort reform might be a good idea, the NAACP doesn’t see it that way.

The usual suspects are crying foul. For example, the liberal Kansas City Star wrung their hands and asked, “Is Missouri the new Mississippi?” And not only does the Star cry foul over SB43, they also cite all those “hate crimes” reported to the FBI in 2015. Does Missouri have the most reported hate crimes? No, but that doesn’t matter to the Star, whose editorial board looks for racism everywhere.

Moreover, the Missouri head of the NAACP, Rod Chapel, added this warning: “people need to be ready, whether it’s bringing bail money with them, or letting relatives know they are traveling through the state.”

Here’s more on the story from a Kansas City news station:

Oh please. The NAACP is seething because the new Missouri governor, Eric Greitens, is a Republican, succeeding Democrat Jay Nixon. Moreover, former Navy SEAL Greitens publicly left the Democratic party in 2015. So if you’re thinking that there’s some payback going on in the Show-Me state, you’d probably be right.


Yet while the NAACP is screaming about threats towards blacks emanating from the good state of Missouri, I wonder if it also issued travel advisories to Chicago? Yes, charge me with committing “whataboutism,” but I think it’s perfectly reasonable to point out the massive crime wave in Chicago, mostly endured by black citizens.

For example, just this past Tuesday in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, a gunman shot into a group of people sitting on a porch. On that porch was a 66-year-old neighborhood mechanic known as “Pops.” He was holding a six-month-old baby in his lap just moments before the shooting. Fortunately, someone took the baby inside before a gunman walked up to the porch and shot four people, including Pops. As a neighbor said, “They were just sitting outside after a long day of work. You just really have to be a heartless person to shoot on a porch full of kids and the elderly.”

Furthermore, shooting victims in Chicago tend to be black. A 2013 article in The Atlantic written by a Chicagoan points out how a black person living in the same area as a white person is much more likely to be a crime victim. Gangs also rule parts of the city, as this video shows:

Here’s a hair-raising video of gunfire heard at night in the streets of Chicago. If you’re wondering where the name “Chiraq” in the video title comes from, it’s a combination of the names ‘Chicago’ and ‘Iraq,’ coined by South Side rappers.

So why doesn’t the NAACP give Chicago a “travel advisory” then? I’d think a law-abiding African-American citizen would be far more likely to die on Windy City streets than in all of Missouri. Ah, but that doesn’t count. The NAACP can’t make political hay out of gang wars and black-on-black crime.
