Gov. Ron DeSantis reacted to a story 10 Investigates was the first to break, calling the Florida NAACP’s pursuit of a travel advisory for the state a “joke.” “What a joke – what a joke. Yeah, we’ll see how effective that is,” he said during a news conference at Ridgeview High School in Orange Park. In response to the governor’s comment, Hillsborough NAACP President Yvette Lewis said, “‘a joke’ that all of the United States is hearing.” 10 Investigates first reported on Tuesday the Florida NAACP Florida State Conference voted unanimously over the weekend to ask its national office for approval to issue a travel advisory in wake of recent policies and legislation targeting diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, in the video published on March 24, 2023, by 10 Tampa Bay, as “DeSantis responds to Florida NAACP’s travel advisory pursuit“, below:
I am curious as to how the NAACP would word the “travel advisory” in May, 2023. Will it be advising African Americans not to visit Florida or will it be advising African Americans not to live or try to get a job in Florida? Will such travel advisory state clearly this advisory is a result of Florida Governor DeSantis’ position toward DEI initiatives? Finally, I wonder if Floridian African American business people and residents will have an input at the NAACP meeting in May of 2023.
For those of us who are not African-American Floridians, perhaps we can try to help support or visit African American businesses in Central Florida area from time to time. After all, we’re all fellow Floridians, or extended neighbors.
