An improvised explosive device was detonated against the exterior wall of a building housing the Colorado Springs chapter of the NAACP on Tuesday, officials said.

The explosion knocked items off the office walls but no one was injured.

Agents from the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives went to the scene after the blast to gather evidence and place makers.

"Improvised explosive device" set off near Colorado Springs NAACP chapter

This is disgraceful behavior. I have my issues with the NAACP, but to endanger people is so far past crossing the line.

What message does this even serve? That there are still racist assholes?

I think it's high time we start having a national conversation about race issues without all the baiting and blaming. No one wants to admit it, but every side is somewhat complicit in the issues we are facing today, even if only by complacency.

I'm really hoping this doesn't become a trend, and I'm glad LE already has a possible suspect. Let's hope he gets caught, and let's hope this even is used to further divide.

Fuel on the fire.

Like you I've had my issues with the NAACP. But terrorism, murder, malicious destruction, and hate are not tolerable.

When they find the A hole who did this...Let's just hope the cops aren't too nice to him.

Wow! Scary! I hope they catch him soon. Who knows what he has planned next...

Saw this on local news earlier. They said someone drove by and threw a stick of dynamite out the window toward the building, no injuries. Although it was the first story, it wasn't very long. Not much else being said about it.

That is the scary part. So are potential copycats. I'm willing to bet this guy isn't too bright (I am ashamed to admit the first time I tried to spell that I went brite), so probably didn't actually have much else planned.

What worries me is the back and forth between idiots with differing . So now maybe someone tries to retaliate against white people, then some other nut retaliates against that... Some jackass spray paints a mosque, so some jackass spray paints a synagogue, then it escalates.

Tired of it.

For the rest of the world the Naacp is

'National Association for the advancement of colored people.'

I thought it might have been


'National Association for the advancement of Child Porn.'

But it wasn't.

Looking into the website it is for all the colored people as long as they are black.


I agree with the other posters, they do not deserve to get blown up.

Sometimes this site is so US centric it goes way over the top.

US site, majority of posters are from the US, I assume people know how to Google and I just quoted the article, no harm meant.

According to the the FBI, officials are seeking a "potential person of interest," described as a balding white male, about 40 years o;d.

"He may be driving a 2000 or older model dirty, white pick-up truck with paneling, a dark colored bed liner, open tailgate, and a missing or covered license plate," the FBI said in a statement said.



False Flag anyone?

How obvious can they make it.

None taken.

I did just google it but it would be nice ......

I actually was trying to guess and thought CP,.... people blowing it up ..... sounds fair!

But it was colored people.

But then it wasn't.

Seems they do not like yellow, red or pink or anything else except black.

I won't say the obvious that black is not a color.

And when is a stick of dynamite an 'improvised explosive device.'

Why is it improvised, I mean, it just is what it is.

Lol S&F

I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that there is a white guy that drives a pickup and has a grudge against the NAACP.

I would imagine if "they" were going to risk setting up a false flag it wouldn't be something this small.

Not everybody is a fan of theirs, but there's no denying that they're a powerful and generally well regarded civil rights organization. Surprised that a US site with majority US members is somewhat US centric?

I think it likely WAS a cop....some race baiting going on from official circles to stir up further tensions on both sides.....

On the contrary.

It's perfect.

"No Injuries", "minimal damage".

And FBI top billing press exposure.

Perfect timing too.

Good rebuttal!

Still, false flagish things seem more likely to leave behind a bit more destruction and injuries. At least the ones I think are actually plausible. Again though, good points.

It seems there are enough jackasses out there to keep things divisive without some shadowy hand needed to guide them.

I agree.

The gov's false flag operations always leave a body count of innocent civilians.

It was probably just a random lunatic.

We have a winner. "They" are doing everything they can to ignite racial tensions where none would otherwise exist.

Fanning the flames of prejudice in pursuit of a racial divide of their own making, for their own purposes. It's plainly apparent from the focus and character the "news" has taken of late.

They're planting the seeds of civil unrest by projecting a false reality onto our social experiences. You can expect these "incidents" to continue, increasingly hyped by the media each time and thus propelling the artificial tension even further until something real actually breaks.

Please don't fall for it. Again.

Hmmmm....now I am straddling the fence-after reading your comment.

I guess it could be either scenario.

I agree with your first sentence, but that second sentence I do not. Just more race baiting, courtesy of "they."

I was mocking the "they" everyone refers to and can't name.
