St. Louis County NAACP comments on travel advisory

The St. Louis County NAACP has released a statement following a travel advisory for Missouri that was issued by the NAACP National organization, warning minorities.

“Individuals traveling in the state are advised to travel with extreme CAUTION,” the advisory warns. “Race, gender and color based crimes have a long history in Missouri.”

This is the first travel advisory ever issued by the NAACP, following the state’s advisory issued in June, which was recognized nationally at the NAACP’s annual convention last week.
However, the St. Louis County branch says this only harms minorities who make a living in the travel, service, and hospitality business.
“The NAACP County branch is very well aware of the legislation called out by the Missouri branch and the national NAACP in its advisory against traveling to Missouri,” John Gaskin III, of St. Louis County NAACP and the NAACP national board, said in a press release. “The legislation was heatedly debated by the state legislature and ultimately passed and signed into law by the Governor.

“While we may not approve of the legislation, as it changes the standard by which employment discrimination cases are judged, the standard is already in place in 38 other states and is the standard used by the federal government to determine EEOC and ADA discrimination charges,” St. Louis County NAACP President Esther Haywood said. “The people hurt by the travel advisory are the members of our NAACP community who work across our state in hospitality industry jobs and who have played no role in this legislation.

“We suggest that if the NAACP does not rescind their advisory immediately, then they should add to it the other 38 states, which all already have this standard for monitoring discrimination in place,” Haywood added.

The advisory was issued after Senate Bill 43 was signed into law by Gov. Eric Greitens, a law that now makes it more difficult for employees to prove they are discriminated against because of their race, class, or gender.
