Editor, It has come to the attention of myself and the Liberty County NAACP chapter that there has been unacceptable behavior from a Chinese-food restaurant in Hinesville toward certain residents of Liberty County.
This behavior consists of racial slurs, and several customers have come forth with claims of racial bias and unfair, discriminatory actions taken against them.
We stand firm in our representation of our community and will provide solace, consolation and support to any victim and the victims’ families. We will use peaceful or civil remedies to right wrongs.
It is our duty to inform the community and business owners that this behavior will not be tolerated in today’s society. Racial slurs, attacks and bad behavior will not be tolerated against any person of any color, race or nationality.
The Liberty County NAACP stands vigilant against this type of behavior. The community must know that this behavior should not and will not be tolerated. A local resident has filed a complaint with our office against an employee at this restaurant. This matter will be investigated fully. Also, this matter currently is being addressed in the courts.
The NAACP will investigate all cases reported to it. We seek to ensure the political, educational, social and economic equality of rights of all people and to eliminate race-based discrimination. Our vision is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race.
The Liberty County NAACP publicly issues condemnation of any violations of law, whether committed by business owners or residents.
