The Giants and the San Francisco chapter of the NAACP have pledged to “explore efforts locally and nationally to promote justice and equal harmony for all,” the organization said in a news release Friday, a day after its local president and a civil-rights attorney spoke with team investor Charles B. Johnson by phone.
It was not immediately clear if that support would include a financial donation from the Giants or Johnson.
The Rev. Amos Brown, president of the San Francisco NAACP chapter, and attorney John Burris both say they came away from Thursday’s phone call with Johnson and Giants President Larry Baer satisfied that Johnson has renounced racism and sought the return of two donations to a PAC that created a racist radio ad and a U.S. Senate candidate who said in Mississippi she would attend a “public hanging” if a particular supporter invited her.
