NAACP suspends St. Louis leader for his support of Title IX due process legislation

Article here. Excerpt:

'John Gaskin endorsed Missouri legislation to reform sexual misconduct proceedings on college campuses, saying they currently deny due process to accused students, who are disproportionately black men.

He spoke in the name of the St. Louis County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, where he serves as president.

Now he’s in trouble with the national organization for putting it on the wrong side of the issue.

NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson told Gaskin in a Thursday letter that he was contradicting NAACP policy on the implementation of Title IX. Johnson cited the national organization’s public comments against Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s* proposed Title IX regulation, the subject of a public rulemaking.'
