NAACP Unites With Latino Groups To Fight Racial Profiling

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

FLORIDA – The NAACP has joined forces with Latino and human rights groups to oppose bills in the Florida senate that would require law enforcement agencies to racially profile.

Politic365 reports:

These bills “would require law enforcement officials in Florida to engage in racial profiling – an insidious practice all too familiar to racial and ethnic minorities in America today,” the NAACP stated in its letter before adding, “[it] is not only immoral, un-American and unconstitutional, but it is also counterproductive law enforcement as well. The government should be preventing police from investigating and detaining people based on color and accent, not mandating it.”

By joining with other organizations, including among others, the National Council of La Raza, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and the League of United Latin American Citizens, the NAACP keeps alive the spirit of past civil rights leaders.
