South Whitehall Answers NAACP
The local NAACP announced a travel advisory for people of color in regard to both South Whitehall and Dorney Park. Although I understand that their mission is to combat racism, I think that their advisory was unwarranted under the circumstances of the recent lethal encounter.
I understand that they're not going to issue a warning against taking drugs and menacing motorists, and then jumping on police cars and pounding windshields.
South Whitehall took the unusual step of issuing a counter statement, denying that their police department engages in racial discrimination in enforcing the law. I applaud the township for not being intimidated.
