Greitens and other supporters of the bill have said it puts Missouri's standards for lawsuits in line with other states.
But that's not how the NAACP sees it. The Missouri NAACP State Conference called the legislation a "Jim Crow Bill."
"This does not follow the morals of Missouri," Conference President Rod Chapel Jr. told CNN. "I hate to see Missouri get dragged down deep past the notion of treating people with dignity."

There have been other instances of discrimination in the state that could have elicited an advisory before this, several of which are listed in the warning. Among them are racist incidents reported at the University of Missouri that prompted protests across campus in 2015, as well as the state attorney general's annual report that found black drivers were stopped by police at a rate 75% higher than white drivers."

The advisory doesn't tell people to not go to Missouri. Rather, the NAACP wants minority travelers to be aware of what it says are potential risks.
"People should tell their relatives if they have to travel through the state, they need to be aware," Chapel said. "They should have bail money, you never know."

Really? So minor children should not be legally protected from abuse? How about the handicapped, the elderly? Are those not some of the protected classes you are fucking whining about? Or are you just bitching about certain protected classes?

Again.

What the hell IS a protected class?


For someone who prides themself in lecturing posters about their reading comprehension and things of the sort you sure do struggle w/ the subject personally.

I guess the age old maxim must apply

"He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches"

Sure I do, but I want to deprive him of plausible deniability. I want HIM to say exactly what he's talking about.
If I say what he's talking about he can always whine about me "putting words in his mouth", I didn't understand what he REALLY meant, etc. etc.

Now YOU'RE pretending to be stupid.
