Hmmm, I wonder which party they will support?

Via The Hill:

NAACP President and CEO Cornell William Brooks on Sunday called upon people who have been demonstrating across the country to vote in November.

"To bring about the kind of change we need, we need to ensure that every demonstrator is a voter and that we show up en masse and in the millions at the polls in November," Brooks said on CBS's "Face the Nation."

"Because we need to bring about reform at the state and municipal levels and at the federal level and of course call upon our presidential candidates to take racial profiling seriously and address it in their party platforms and in their campaigns."

Brooks said there are thousands of people protesting in the streets because they believe they can bring about an end to police misconduct.

"That is an affirmation of who we are as a country. It's an affirmation of our capability as a country to bring about reform," he said. 

"And it speaks to the character of our country and of our fellow citizens."

He noted the country is in better shape now than it has been in the past, but "clearly, we are not where we should be."

"We are better than we were," he said. "And because we are better than we were, we have the conviction that we can be better still."
