The NAACP office was bombed in Colorado Springs, Colo. On Jan. 6 a device was placed near the NAACP office. Attacks on African-Americans have increased during Barack Obama’s presidency.
No one was hurt in the Colorado attack. But, FBI Special Agent Thomas Ravenelle said, “I’m not going to be naïve, I know what the NAACP means to some extremists in this country.” The device, considered unsophisticated by police, did not fully ignite. But, there was an explosion and minor damage.
