NAACP President: Rittenhouse Acquittal Was ‘Injustice’ Worse Than Emmett Till Trial

November 22, 2021

Friday on MSNBC’s The Last Word, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President and CEO Derrick Johnson claimed hyperbolically that Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal “was an injustice… worse than the Emmett Till trial.”

Johnson stated, “It was unfortunate for the families of the victims with this outcome.” The “victims”? Does he mean the violent career criminals, including a convicted pedophile, who were rioting in a Black Lives Matter protest and tried to kill Rittenhouse?

“We all witnessed and [saw] on-screen what happened,” he continued. Yes, we did. We all saw the video that made it clear Rittenhouse was justified in firing his weapon in self-defense against a trio of would-be murderers.

Johnson went on to claim outrageously that the judge is “not providing justice for that community,” and that the trial “was an injustice. This was worse than the Emmett Till trial. This was worse [than] so many trials where we know, for a fact, individuals committed murder and yet they were not brought to justice. It is unfortunate, but this is America.”

Yes, this is America, and in America we don’t let racist leftists like Derrick Johnson falsely convict people of murder for a political agenda. Shame on Johnson and the NAACP.
