quote:At least three White protesters, and long-time social justice advocates, were told by Black protest organizers that they were not allowed at last week’s downtown rally over the racist murder at Razzoo night club in New Orleans, says Orissa Arend. Arend discusses the quandary of the Blacks-only Rally in her latest column for the Louisiana Weekly print edition.
This just expresses a level of pure stupidity that defies belief! Having a protest about a Black man who died trying to enter a club and claiming it was all "racist" and Blacks were not wanted. While at the same time using racist tactics themselves IN THEIR PROTEST. As if Whites are not good enough to take part in "their protest".
Can't say I know the whole deal about the death, but the Mayor (who himself is Black) appears to be taking action. Anyway, this whole segregated protest concept is just dumb!
LOL! Yea that is kind of dumb why would you be hooping and hollering about racism when you turn away people who want to protest with you. The only reason you want to turn them away is because their white! Come on yall we have to do better than this!
