Black Lives Matter held a protest march today in Seattle, Washington.
The rally organizers forced all whites to the back of the march.
And the rally organizers pushed whites to the back if they did not go willingly.
What a great organization!
From a reader:
I attended today’s Black Lives Matter march in Seattle, which started downtown before making its way to the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.
As an early supporter of BLM I was saddened and disheartened to see that the organizers were requiring all Whites to go to the back of the march, with protest leaders shouting, screaming and shoving, militantly ordering “Whites to the back!” Later, I was told this had been published in advance on their website and any surprise on my part was my own fault. Upon checking, this turned out to be factual.
I truly felt this is inconsistent with the message of diversity, inclusion and equity of BLM and an afront to civil rights pioneers like Rosa Parks.
Sure enough here is the order from the Black Lives Matter webpage.
