(Photos: Twitter)NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson releases the following statement on the guilty verdicts against the three white vigilante murderers in the trial over the killing of Ahmaud Arbery."The verdict in the trial over the killing of Ahmaud Arbery is long overdue. Ahmaud Arbery's death was unnecessary and fueled by racist ideologies deeply ingrained into the fabric of this nation."Generations of Black people have seen this time and time again, with the murder of Emmett Till, Trayvon Martin, and many others."The actions and events perpetrated by the McMichaels and William Bryan leading up to Ahmaud's death reflect a growing and deepening rift in America that will be its undoing if not addressed on a systemic level. We must fix what is genuinely harming our nation: white supremacy.
