Will the NAACP now actually begin to publicly press the SCPD for accountabiliity around racial profiling and, for instance, require the SCPD to include race statistics on its summaries of arrests and citations?

Or is this to be another misuse of Martin Luther King as a kind of "look how far we've come!" false hagiography as blacks, youth, the poor, and other minorities continue to be shot down and brutalized nation-wide without consequence?
