GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The North Carolina NAACP is now weighing in on the Marching Pirate’s protest.
Since the protest by some during the national anthem at Saturday’s game, controversy between protesters and the university has mounted. It has led the university to say they will not tolerate another protest like that again.
On Wednesday, NAACP President Rev. William Barber sent the university a warning, saying the university was now infringing on student’s rights.
“There’s a small document. It’s not 100 pages. It’s not 50 pages, but it’s powerful. It’s called the constitution. We’ve died on foreign battlefields for it. And the constitution gives you the right to freedom of speech,” Barber said.
