(Columbia, SC) – In a resolute statement issued today, Brenda Murphy, President of the South Carolina State Conference of the NAACP, denounced what she described as deliberate attempts to suppress the voices of Black Americans in the upcoming election.

“For over a century, the NAACP has worked fervently to protect Black Americans’ access to the ballot box,” Murphy declared. “Make no mistake – these discriminatory maps are a direct attempt to suppress Black voices ahead of a consequential election.”

Murphy expressed profound concern over recent court rulings that further delayed proceedings related to the issue, suggesting that such delays are undemocratic and could potentially influence the outcome of the election.

“The Court’s ruling today, further delaying these proceedings, continues to tip the scale of justice during a crucial moment in our democracy in an undemocratic attempt to sway the outcome of the upcoming election,” she stated.

Asserting the necessity of a fair and inclusive electoral system, Murphy emphasized the NAACP’s commitment to ensuring that every voice is heard and every vote counts, without the taint of discrimination.

“We must strive for a system where every voice is heard and every vote counts, free from the stain of discrimination,” Murphy asserted.

In closing, Murphy reaffirmed the SC State Conference of NAACP’s dedication to collaborating with community members across South Carolina to promote fair and equitable representation and to eradicate racial bias and intentional discrimination from the electoral process.

“SC State Conference of NAACP stands ready to continue working with community members throughout South Carolina to enact fair and equal representation in our state and to eradicate racial predominance and intentional discrimination,” she concluded.
