NAACP Calls Out FBI's Latest Report on "Black Extremists" as Déjà Vu

Baltimore, MD- According to a journalistic investigation by the news outlet Foreign Policy (FP) the FBI's counter-terroism division has identified a new threat-black identity extremists (BIE). The FBI's assessment is that BIE's "perception of police brutality against African Americans have spurred retaliatory lethal violence against law enforcement". In response to this report the interim NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson has released the following statement:

"In a time when white supremacists are marching down city streets with loaded weapons and tiki torches- organizing rallies of terror around the country - it comes as a great shock that the FBI would decide to target black identity groups protesting police brutality and their right to exist free of harm as a threat.

"Sadly, this report comes as no surprise from an organization that has a history of targeting black civil rights groups and leaders, including wiretapping Martin Luther King Jr. and others fighting for civil rights in the 1960s.

"We do have a real threat in the United States and it's the rise of right-wing extremists, white nationalists and white supremacists, who have been emboldened by this administration. In light of this report, the NAACP is resolved to double down on our efforts to advance the rights of black Americans and people of color across this country. We remain steadfast and immovable in our fight for justice and equality - and we are not afraid."

NAACP Statement on Steve Bannon's Removal from White House

Baltimore-The NAACP, the nation's oldest social justice organization, released this statement following the removal of Senior White House Strategist and known white supremacist Steve Bannon from President Trump's administration.

"The NAACP is glad to see Steve Bannon out of the White House," said Derrick Johnson, interim president and CEO of the NAACP. "Ousting one key staffer, however, can't erase the words used by President Trump this week in defense of domestic terrorists, neo-Nazis and white supremacists. President Trump provided permission for these hate groups to exist. Following the travesty in Charlottesville, Virginia, numerous other rallies and white supremacist groups are being mobilized across the country. These groups are not rallying for peace, or for the preservation of Confederate memorabilia. They exist purely to foment hatred and violence. And they march with the president's blessing.

"President Trump must denounce in words and in deeds these white supremacists and urge them to stop their senseless rallies and killings and unlawful demonstrations. We further call upon the President to remove the people who share Steve Bannon's poisonous beliefs from the White House, including Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka. President Trump needs to send a clear message to our great country: That his administration disavows bigotry in all of its forms, and that racist ideologies simply will not be tolerated."
