NAACP Statement on the Death of Missouri Teen Antonio Martin

Posted by Admin On December - 25 - 2014

The NAACP has released the following statement on the death of Missouri teen Antonio Martin:


Cornell William Brooks, NAACP President and CEO:

“The NAACP abhors all loss of life and unequivocally condemns violence.  As we await the results of the investigation into the shooting death of Antonio Martin, we ask that the community exercise peaceful protest and refrain from any violent retaliation. A violent response, as the families of so many recent victims of violence have said so often, does nothing to honor and in fact desecrates the memory of their loved ones.The tears of grieving families are neither police blue nor racially black or brown, they are colorless. All lives matter. Particularly during this season that so many Americans hold sacred, the NAACP is calling for patience and peace as the circumstances of Mr. Martin’s death are thoroughly investigated.‎ Our deepest condolences go out to the Martin family.”
