NAACP President Calls for Resources to Crack Down on Hate Crimes

The president of the NAACP on Sunday called for more government resources to crack down on hate crimes and hate groups.

Cornell Williams Brooks, the president of the civil rights group, also said the Confederate flag in South Carolina should come down following the killing of nine individuals at a historically black church in the state.

“When we think about the fact that in this country, there’s 784 hate groups, the level of hate crimes in this country has remained constant over years. We have to allocate resources to address these hate groups and these hate crimes,” Brooks said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
