NAACP President Derrick Johnson on Sen. Tuberville's Racist Comments this Weekend

Statement from the President - NAACP

"Senator Tuberville's comments are flat out racist, ignorant and utterly sickening. His words promote a centuries-old lie about Black people that throughout history has resulted in the most dangerous policies and violent attacks on our community. We've seen this before from the far-right, and we've seen what they can do when they take power. Next time the Senator wants to talk about crime, he should talk about Donald Trump's hate-fueled rally on January 6, 2021, and the attacks that followed. Perhaps the real criminals are in his orbit."
