BOSTON (CBS) — The president of Boston’s NAACP chapter believes that, so far, new Gov. Charlie Baker is honoring his campaign pledge to be available to communities of color.
“He’s one of the most accessible governors that any of us can recall,” Boston NAACP President Michael Curry told WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller on Sunday’s Keller @ Large. “We’ll see, it’s really whether we have access six months from now or two years from now.”
Curry also said he “absolutely approved” of protests in January that shut down parts of Interstate 93 during rush hour.
“It was meant to make people uncomfortable. . . it did exactly that,” Curry said. “I’m optimistic when any privileged group of white kids come out and say, ‘hey we want to be part of this movement to stop police brutality.’”
