NAACP Office Bombed
According to a statement released by the FBI, an “improvised explosive device” was detonated near the Colorado Springs, Colorado headquarters of the NAACP.
There were no injuries. According to the FBI statement, the “potential person of interest in this investigation is a Caucasian male, approximately 40 years of age, and balding. He may be driving a 2000 or older model dirty, white pick-up truck with paneling, a dark colored bed liner, open tailgate, and a missing or covered license plate.”
The motive is currently unknown, but bombings were a regular terrorist tactic against black organizations during Jim Crown. It looks like history is repeating itself.
