SALT LAKE CITY – Utah NAACP officials announced they did not support Utah leader Black Lives Matter’s statement The ex Scott concerning the American flag.
Earlier in the week, Scott posted a message on Facebook, which read in part: “When we black Americans see this flag, we know the person piloting it is not safe, is racist, and lives. in another America and wondering. their intelligence.
She defended her words when she spoke to Garna Mejia from KSL-TV.
“We never said we hate America. We never said we hate the American flag, we never said that. We said the American flag is used for hate and everyone wants to twist our words for their own propaganda. They want to make it look like we are anti-American, ”she said.
On Saturday, the NAACP released a statement, saying it disagreed with Scott’s comments, adding that it rejects the idea that the American flag is a racist message.
“The flag represents all of the people who have lived and served to bring the best of the American experience, that all people are created equal,” the statement said.
The statement went on to say: “While we recognize that our nation’s history is marked by both failures and successes in dealing with minorities, we know that the way forward begins with respect and solidarity. for all Americans. “
