Washington, DC (January 13th, 2021) – In recent days, several social media platforms have posted statements purporting that the NAACP has received information about white nationalists groups initiations during the weekend after the election, and previously during the fourth of July weekend.
The National NAACP has not released any such statement. While we take all matters of racial discrimination and racial hatred seriously, these statements are not from the NAACP.
These social media posts and press releases appear to be associated with a Huey P. Newton group, which has no affiliation to the NAACP.
All official NAACP statements can be found on our website at www.naacp.org or @naacp on official NAACP social media platforms.
This statement has been updated to reflect recent and incoming claims.
