Derrick Johnson, President and CEO, NAACP:
“The fact that Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael have not been arrested and held without bond in the senseless killing of Ahmaud Arbery is despicable and displays the ills of systematic racism and privilege granted to white people in America when Black bodies are at the epicenter. This incident is reminiscent of a horrific era where police officers and white protesters routinely brutalized African-Americans. We call for the immediate resignation of the district attorneys in this case. We intend to put the full weight of our power behind this case to ensure we reach justice.”
