On Tuesday an improvised explosive device was detonated near the Colorado Springs chapter of the NAACP. According to FBI spokeswoman Amy Sanders, it is too soon to know whether the nation’s oldest civil rights organization was the target. The agency sent members of its Joint Terrorism Task Force to help investigate the incident

Wednesday, Cornell W. Brooks, President of the NAACP, joined Roland Martin on “NewsOne Now” via phone to discuss the bombing and the latest developments surrounding the heinous act.

“It’s concerning,” said Brooks. “What we know is that a crime was committed. What we do not know is the names and identities of any criminals or their intensions.”

“We don’t know what kind of crime, whether it was a hate crime, attempted arson or an act of terrorism,” said Brooks.

The bombing did not result in any injuries or casualties.

In light of the NAACP’s history of being under attack by various group Brooks said, “The NAACP is a subject, object of affection by a great many Americans, but there is an infinitesimally small group of Americans that hate our work, hate our aspirations and do not mean us well.”

Brooks continued, “We have to be concerned about the explosive device detonated outside one of our offices. We are very concerned and we are trying to be both as vigilant as we can in terms of protecting our people from any future harm as we are trying to be precise about what has in fact happened.”

As a precaution, the NAACP has issued an alert out to all of their offices nationwide to make sure all of their associates are safe and are all “aware of what the challenges are and what we need to do.”
