Come learn about the various project and activities we have planned for 2017 and how you can help.
And even the young ones are invited
All white people are banned from an upcoming Black Lives Matter event in Philadelphia. Don’t worry, it’s totally not racist. It’s not like a group of white people are excluding blacks or anything. Now that would be racist AF. Black Lives Matter Philly has an exciting event coming up on April 15. According to their Facebook page:
Did you know our meetings are family-friendly? You can bring your children to the meeting too! There will be activities for them to do while you meet, strategize and organize.
But there are some people who are not invited, namely everyone who isn’t black:
BLM Philly is having their next open meeting on Saturday, April 15 at 10AM. We will be at Mastery Charter School-Shoemaker Campus (5301 Media St). Doors will open at 9:45AM. Please note that BLM Philly is a Black only space. (my emphasis)
“Black only space” is pretty self-explanatory in that anyone who isn’t black ain’t allowed in, but some people were confused and reached out to BLM Philly on Twitter for some clarification. “Our meetings are black centered,” was the response. Some people still didn’t get it so they tweeted out this:
“If you identify as a person of the African Diaspora You can attend our meetings and become a member. If not you can support us in other ways,” they wrote.
Gosh, what white person wouldn’t want to support a group that bans them from the meetings? I wonder if there are any black people who find different ways of supporting the KKK because they aren’t allowed to attend their cross burnings. No, that would just be silly, right?
In another tweet BLM Philly defends their “blacks only” meetings because Malcolm X did it. Of course Malcolm X was murdered by his own people, so maybe that wasn’t the best policy.
Ironically, or maybe it’s hypocritically, the people fighting for civil rights in the 60’s were trying to end segregation yet Black Lives Matter is actively fighting for resegregation. They have “blacks only spaces,” argue for blacks only schools, want blacks only police, and even want a blacks only city.
You often hear black activists like Jesse Jackson bitching that President Trump is undoing decades of progress made in the black community. There are never any examples of what Trump is doing to turn back the clock, but liberals don’t have to explain themselves. Why however do you never hear Jackson or any of the veteran race-hustlers griping about BLM undoing all of their work with their “separate but equal” resegregation efforts?
What do you think? Is this racist?
