NAACP President: ‘Burn This Bi*** Down’ Not ‘A Call For Violence’


<p>Video cross-posted <a href="…; at NewsBusters.&nbsp;On Tuesday night, Cornell Brooks, president of the NAACP, appeared on CNN&rsquo;s <i>Erin Burnett OutFront </i>to discuss the shooting death of Michael Brown and seemed to dismiss calls for violence by a member of Michael Brown&rsquo;s immediately.&nbsp;Burnett played video of Brown&rsquo;s stepfather telling a crowd of protestors to &ldquo;burn this bi*** down&rdquo; after the grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson and asked Brooks if &ldquo;that served as a chalet violence?&rdquo; Rather than condemn Brown&rsquo;s stepfather&rsquo;s highly charged rhetoric, the president of the NAACP proclaimed &ldquo;I don&#39;t think that was a call for violence or it caused violence.&rdquo;</p>
