NAACP Issues Travel Advisory for Missouri, Citing “New Jim Crow” Law | Democracy Now!

August 4, 2017

Back in the U.S., the NAACP has issued its first-ever travel advisory, warning people of color to avoid the state of Missouri, after Governor Eric Greitens signed a bill blasted by critics as a “new Jim Crow” law. SB 43 bars workers from suing individuals responsible for alleged bias and makes it extremely difficult for workers to win racial discrimination claims against businesses. In a statement, the Missouri chapter of the NAACP wrote, “Individuals traveling in the state are advised to travel with extreme caution. … SB 43 legalizes individual discrimination and harassment in Missouri and would prevent individuals from protecting themselves.”
