The Resistance: Sit-Ins

It's polite now, but not for long.

Protesters from the NAACP were arrested Tuesday evening after holding a day-long sit-in at the Alabama offices of Sen. Jeff Sessions, demanding he withdraw his name from nomination as Donald Trump’s attorney general. The protesters seemed to be under the impression that Sen. Sessions has “hostile” attitudes toward civil rights and voting rights, even though Sessions is quite certain he’s as fair-minded as they come. Six of the protesters were arrested for trespassing, according to, including the group’s national President and CEO Cornell William Brooks, Alabama State Conference President Bernard Simelton, and Lizetta McConnell, head of the NAACP’s Mobile branch.
