Dianne Binns, president of the local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) from 2016 to 2018, slammed rioters who looted a Target store Thursday in St. Paul following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody. Four cops involved were subsequently fired, and President Trump announced that he had asked the FBI and the DoJ to investigate the incident.
“St. Paul ain’t got shit to do with what happened,” Binns told a reporter from the Minnesota Reformer. She said she had come to Target to buy medication for her daughter, and that she was furious at the rioters for the devastation they had wrought.
“These people don’t give a damn about George Floyd, because [the authorities] took and fired the police officers. They’re gonna charge them when the investigation is over.”
When someone noted that the FBI is investigating, Binn responded, “That’s right. And so, hell, leave this shit alone. These motherfuckers need to go home.”
