This is what democracy looks like.
The local Nashville ‘Black Lives Matter” activist group was forced to move their meetings from a local library. Their racist policies prevented them from meeting at the public establishment.
USA Today reported:
Library officials have told Nashville’s chapter of the Black Lives Matter movement that meetings restricting those who attend by race aren’t allowed on public property.
The decision has outraged Black Lives Mattermembers. But Nashville Public Library officials said they’re following a library policy that specifies all meetings at their facilities must be open to the public and news media.

“The library didn’t cancel anyone’s meeting,” said library spokeswoman Emily Waltenbaugh, referring to a Black Lives Matter meeting Saturday that has been moved to a church. “We’re taxpayer funded. We have to be open to anyone any time.”
For the past few months, the Black Lives Matter movement here has had chapter meetings at the North Branch Library. But the group has a rule, said Joshua Crutchfield, an organizer of the Nashville chapter: Only blacks or other minorities are allowed to attend. That means whites are excluded.
