California Women’s March cancels upcoming event for being “overwhelmingly white”

The California chapter of the Women’s March has canceled an event that had been scheduled for next month, because it would have been “overwhelmingly white.”

The group’s official statement on the cancellation says (the bolding is mine):

“The local organizers are continuing to meet and discuss how to broaden representation in the organizing committee to create an event that represents and supports peoples who live here in Humboldt. Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community… Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”

    Is it possible the only people in that area who care about this nonsense are Caucasian? The Asians, Hispanics, and Negroes simply don’t give a crap about this idiocy? What is wrong with Caucasians, anyway? I’m Caucasian and find these protests to be counterproductive and mostly populated with seriously deranged people.

    In light of this article, and as a white male, I’d like to extend a warm and hearty welcome to white females everywhere and invite ya’ll to our weekly Oppressor Meeting. We meet every Thursday about 8 o’clock and talk about all things white! Stop by for some coffee, donuts and to pick up your white privilege card.
