Local NAACP President Carl White calls on President Trump to denounce Virginia violence

Carl White, President, Montgomery County Chapter #6304, National Association for the Advance of Colored People, the oldest civil rights organization in America.

Conroe, August 16 – BREAKING NEWS! Carl White, President of the Montgomery County Chapter, Number 6304, of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, called on “President Donald Trump to denounce this act [the Charlottesville violence] as an act of terrorism and condemn the repeated rhetoric which has helped to fuel this climate of division and derision.”

White explained, “The terrible incidence of violence in Charlottesville is a painful reminder of the blatant racism, unbridled lynching and other violence against citizens of African descent that permeated the history of this country. This goes to the very core of the existence of the NAACP and our continuing struggle against forces of hate.”

White, a former Board member of the Montgomery County Hospital District and longtime political activist in Montgomery County, told The Golden Hammer, “White supremacists and today’s purveyors of hate should find no shadows in which to hide. Our forefathers shed blood so that in 2017, this type of violence would be a footnote of the past…We encourage Texas Governor Greg Abbott to use the full force of his executive powers to eradicate race barriers in all areas of life within the state.”

On behalf of the NAACP’s Chapter #6304, White said, “Our hearts and prayers are with the families of those who lost their lives in Charlottesville. We stand firm with our commitment to acknowledge our differences, to embrace them as the richness of the American mosaic and we’ll continue to lead the fight for the right to assemble peaceably.”
