Travel Advisory: NAACP Warns Black Americans of ‘Open Hostility’ in Florida

May 22, 2023

In a ridiculously empty gesture of race-mongering, black Americans were issued an advisory warning for travel to Florida on Saturday by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

The advisory “comes in direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis’ [R-FL] aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools.” The group warns any black travelers to the Sunshine State to be wary of the “open hostility” directed at them.

In the letter, the group said DeSantis has signed several “anti-civil rights” measures into law, such as the Stop W.O.K.E Act which prohibits teachers from promoting the divisive Marxist subversion of Critical Race Theory in K-12 schools. DeSantis also banned an Advanced Placement African American Studies course to be taught in public schools, stating he was not opposed to schools teaching black history, but he does not want schools to push an ideology or impose “some rote talking points” on “political skirmishes of the day.”

NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson (pictured above) pontificated, “Under the leadership of Governor Desantis, the state of Florida has become hostile to Black Americans and in direct conflict with the democratic ideals that our union was founded upon. He should know that democracy will prevail because its defenders are prepared to stand up and fight. We’re not backing down, and we encourage our allies to join us in the battle for the soul of our nation.”

When the idea of a travel advisory to the state was first floated by state NAACP leadership in March, DeSantis responded, “This is a stunt to try to do that. It’s a pure stunt and fine, if you want to waste your time on a stunt, that’s fine. But I’m not wasting my time on your stunts.”
