The head of the NAACP predicted more racial tension and violent incidents because of President Trump.
"There will be many Charlottesvilles," Derrick Johnson, the NAACP's interim president and CEO, said in a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, according to a USA Today report.
"Unfortunately this administration has created a climate where … (hate groups) feel comfortable to walk in public without the hoods anymore."
On Aug. 12, one woman, Heather Heyer, was killed and 19 others injured after a car drove into a group of counter-protesters who were against the alt-right "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Earlier in August, the group issued a travel advisory for Missouri, saying the state was not safe for minorities following a state law that makes it difficult for employees to prove discrimination.
