 NAACP will meet with Korean American group to discuss incident in
  Charlotte beauty supply store


Less than a month after a black woman was kicked and choked inside a Korean-owned beauty supply store, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg branch of the NAACP will meet with the national Council of Korean Americans to discuss the incident.
At a press conference Tuesday, local NAACP President Corine Mack said the meeting will be hosted by the Community Relations Committee, a city-county organization created to enforce local human relations and fair housing ordinances. The meeting is scheduled for March 4.
Meanwhile, a small group of women outraged over the incident announced at the same press conference that they would begin encouraging black consumers to spend their dollars with black-owned stores.
“Because we are supporting the growth of black people does not mean we are against anyone else,” said Nekie Boyd, who is organizing that effort. “We simply want more for our people.”
Willie Ratchford, executive director of the Community Relations Committee, told Qcitymetro that his organization would provide a “safe space” for the two sides to talk. He said the organization’s role would not act as a mediator.
Based in Washington, D.C., the Council of Korean Americans says on its website that it is a “global network…dedicated to advancing issues of national importance” to the Korean American community. The group could not be immediately reached for comment.
