The NAACP is calling for a “snowflake protest” against President Trump ahead of the national college football championship game in Georgia this week, telling fans to “wave white towels” to simulate a “blizzard” in response to the Trump presidency.
President Trump is scheduled to watch the game in Atlanta Monday night, with the city’s chapter of the NAACP launching the planned protest on its official Facebook page, saying the President’s visit will not “go without a response.”
“We will not let the President’s visit go without a response. If you are lucky enough to attend the game, we encourage you to bring a white towel to wave simulating a blizzard while the president is in the packed stadium,” the group posted. “Trump supporters mockingly call the opposition snowflakes, but when we come together we create a mighty storm.”
Richard Rose, the President of the NAACP’s Atlanta chapter, told Fox News the protests are partially a result of the President’s decision to open Georgia’s coastal waters to offshore drilling development.
“[Drilling] could have a devastating effect in Georgia, Alabama, other states along the coast, and throughout the world,” said Rose.
