A Black Lives Matter branch movement in Philadelphia has banned all hispanic and white people from their upcoming meeting.

Organizers are calling it a “black only space.”

The meeting will take place April 15th, where they will invite black people to “meet, strategize and organize” events.

After severe criticism, the group defended their policy:

“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”

Support someone that is segregating THEMSELVES, and discriminating against ME?

HA!

One Twitter user suggested that Martin Luther King Jr. would never have supported such a policy, and the group simply said that “he made that choice and we have made ours.”

So instead, they turned to the black nationalist, Malcolm X, and his policy of not allowing white people to attend his meetings.

As despicable as the whole thing is, Philadelphian Black Lives Matter branch is not the first group to discriminate against white people.

According to sources, last year Nashville Public Library officials informed Nashville’s chapter of Black Lives Matter members that the group’s “open to black and non-black people of color only” meetings policy was prohibited on public property.

However, the upcoming meeting in Philadelphia takes place at the independently funded Mastery Charter School, meaning they are not subject to the same equality laws prohibiting such a policy.

  1. The issues are about character , therefore the lack of encourages the agenda that BLM is secretly promoting …….racism , xenophobia , and national division of the United States of America by race, ethnicity , and other factors they are unwilling to really discuss. When looking for the right way to do it , look what Gandhi and King promoted ……inclusion , debate , interaction , and most importantly non-violence . There current format is doomed to failure .
