    The Facts

    • The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a longtime advocate for Black Americans, has issued a travel advisory for the US state of Florida.

    • The NAACP is recommending against “African Americans, and other people of color" — as well as LGBTQ communities — traveling to Florida because of a “sustained, blatant, relentless and systemic attack on democracy and civil rights" there.

    The Spin

    Democratic narrative

    It’s important for the NAACP and other organizations to make sure travelers to Florida, which is heavily reliant on the tourism industry, know what they’re supporting with their money. DeSantis and his Republican apparatus are waging war on diversity and inclusion, and organizations and individuals who stand against him must speak out for the world to hear.

    Republican narrative

    These baseless attacks from Democrats and others on the radical left are clearly intended to hamper DeSantis’s presidential aspirations. Most of what the governor has signed into law has been done to protect children from being medically harmed or educationally indoctrinated by the left. Florida is a perfectly safe place — after all, the Black chairman of the NAACP lives there.
