Mike Hill, a Florida business owner, reacted to the NAACP's travel advisory that accused the the Sunshine State of being hostile towards people of color. A Florida Black business owner said travelers thinking about vacationing in the Sunshine State should ignore the NAACP's recent travel advisory. "I would tell Black people who have seen this advisory to not come to Florida to simply ignore it," Mike Hill, the owner of an independent insurance and financial services agency in Pensacola, told Fox News Digital. The NAACP's travel advisory, issued earlier this week, accused Florida of being "hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals." The organization said in a press release that the action was "in direct response to Governor Ron DeSantis' aggressive attempts to erase Black history and to restrict diversity, equity, and inclusion programs in Florida schools." read more

Social media ridiculed New York City Mayor Eric Adams' new proposal to combat shoplifting and crime at retail stores throughout the city. Adam's plan would implement four key actions: "Give first-time offenders intervention programs instead of prosecution," provide "de-escalation training for retail employees," "establish neighborhood retail watch groups to share theft info," and "install kiosks in stores to connect would-be thieves w/ social service programs." Twitter users mocked the mayor for his soft, unrealistic plan that seemed no harsher than putting unruly children in a "time out corner," as one described. Others argued that the mayor's plan would make the city more "dangerous" than it has already become.

#3 Cool beans. Hopefully Roger, Yav and Danni have the same water system I have because if they don't, they'll be some of the first to go from this site. I'm sure they appreciate your well wishes. The left, so compassionate!
#5 So you agree the boycott of Florida is -------- and that's obvious, because you post on this site still.
Sai -------- Kandula was the driver. A Nazi flag was FOUND a the scene, not flying on the truck. Smells like a plant, looks like a plant. etc. Let's wait for the manifesto.
Just to clarify the NAACP and posters on this thread are calling to boycott all things, Florida? All people/companies doing business if Florida? No exceptions, right?
#108 Do tell. You claim to have all of us plonked. How can you tell what all the missing posts say, madame Cleo?
#104 Make sure you are standing outside of Disney protesting for Gays Days 2023. They don't seem to care, much.
Orange Crush fallout: Tybee officials to seek authority to close roads, restrict beach access
How come the NAACP is silent?
#54 Counter with: Florida deemed No. 1 for higher education seventh year in a row by US News & World Report. www.abcactionnews.com
#13 that is not what I said. I wished them success not failure. That is after all what they want correct?
Perhaps they should've put that memo out earlier because there are several black events scheduled in the state of Florida over the next few months. None of which put out statements today, canceling any of them. In fact, one is happening in Jacksonville beach in June because Savannah Georgia refused to permit the event again. I am all for boycotting for what you don't believe in. I wish the NAACP much luck in this mission.
#2 two out of those three have been put on vacation and can't post. It's nice to see how they live rent free in your mind. So I copied your post and will show it to them when they were allowed to come back and post. Have a great day.
A flop? CNN averaged 3.31 million on-air viewers, with another 100,000 streaming the event for a cross-platform total of 3.41 million. It was CNN's largest primetime since at least July 21, 2022, when it drew 3.18 million viewers.
#5 Mission BBQ in Jacksonville opens every day with the Anthem. It's always packed when they open for that reason.
#1 Did you require anti-inflammatory medication after reaching that hard? First, found not guilty and second charges were stayed. There is plenty of music I enjoy without liking the people playing the interments or person singing the words.
Yep, the shooter was a MAGA red hat wearing republican and the victim's 4th generation Texans. Open borders have consequences.
#8 Google says none. If I were you, I would open up a thread with the appropriate time appropriate links showing how many trans kids committed suicide today, because one child has one too many. Don't confuse my stance what you have no ---- idea what it is with that of others.
