Local NAACP says it backs Warren's claims of racial bias


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Local chapters of the NAACP say they back a Brunswick County Commissioner's claims he's being racially harassed.

Charles Warren says he's been harassed by sheriff's deputies and fellow commissioners Bill Sue and Scott Phillips. Sue and Phillips deny the claims.

Brunswick County NAACP president bernest hewett said he believes the minutes of County Commission meetings prove Warren's allegations.

"You can almost see what he's talking about," Hewett said. "You can see the 4-1 votes, 4-1 votes, regardless. Don't make any difference what it is. It's there, and I believe his statements are true."

Hewett said he's going to take Warren's complaint as far as he can take it. He said he's prepared to investigate whatever he needs to fight was he calls an injustice.

That's a shocker...Geez

That's a shocker...Geez

When all else fails

Play the race card. Race-baiting is where they derive their power and their influence.

Government bows to the NAACP and curses the KKK, while in reality they both need to be cursed and ignored. Neither, during their existence have contributed anything of value to society.

NAACP has no room

NAACP has no room to talk about being racist or anything of the sort. Their whole organization is a bunch of racists in itself. Maybe instead of calling out other people that they probably know nothing, about other than one claim that's apparently "racist" they should look at themselves.


I get so sick and tired of black people crying racist everytime they don't get their way. The black people are the one's saying why can't we put racism behind us well they are more racist than any white people that I know. The NAACP is just like Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King Jr has never done anything for anybody except start rights and fights. SO BLACK PEOPLE GET OFF THE RACIST CARD AND GET A JOB AND A LIFE.

As a white man.....

This is one of the most ignorant statements I've ever heard. Laziness and greed have no color......nor does ignorance
