Allen Apologies To NAACP

Rep. Bob "Tearoom" Allen apologized to the North Brevard chapter of the NAACP in Florida yesterday to deny charges of racism raised when he told cops that he feared that he was about to be "made a statistic" by the black men loitering in the park he was cruising.

Allen told the NAACP that he now that he's been arrested, he understands that the civil rights movement was not just about racial equality, saying, "That was a battle they didn't fight for just people of color." The NAACP said they accepted his apology.
