Activists Call for Corey’s suspension

19 Mar, 2014

Color of Change, the activist organization that exists to strengthen Black America’s political voice, asks Florida Gov. Rick Scott to suspend the state attorney and stop the prosecution of Alexander. The group’s director, Rashad Robinson, calls Corey’s tactics reminiscent of Jim Crow when black people could not depend on government officials for justice.

I think Angela Corey is a bit unhinged and she’s playing for political points, and she believes she can make this black woman a target and win political points.
