Authorities have confirmed that racial slurs were spray-painted on Moffitt’s car, including the N-word and the phrase “KKK”. Authorities are looking into whether race was a factor in the attack.
“The NAACP offers our prayers to Ms. Moffit and her family in their time of crisis,” stated NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous. “Initial reports of racial animus in the incident are disturbing. We will remain vigilant as we urge authorities to conduct a full investigation into this crime. We encourage anyone with information on the incident to immediately report possible leads to authorities.”
“We are shocked by the malicious actions of those involved and express best wishes to Sharmeka Moffitt and her family,” stated NAACP Louisiana State Conference President Dr. Ernest L. Johnson, Sr. “We urge authorities to conduct a full and thorough investigation into the nature of this brutal crime, and to determine whether it was a hate crime. The Louisiana NAACP State Conference will exhaust all remedies available to see that justice is done and that the criminals are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation’s oldest and largest civil rights organization. Its members throughout the United States and the world are the premier advocates for civil rights in their communities, conducting voter mobilization and monitoring equal opportunity in the public and private sectors
