Organizers of the Women’s March in Humboldt County, California, announced Friday that they have canceled the local Jan. 19 event because the marchers are overwhelmingly white.
In a Facebook statement, the group said it opted to nix the third annual march “after many conversations between local social-change organizations and supporters of the march,” saying they would work on how to “broaden representation in the organizing committee.”
“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” said the statement. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.”
Let's ALL just take a step back from our partisan positions...take a deep breath...center ourselves...and calmly ask of this situation...one quintessential question:
"ARE THESE PEOPLE F**KING NUTS?"
It's a march FOR women...but it's too white.
Let me try this again...
This march is to support women...but too many white people want to march in it so it needs to be cancelled.
I'm sorry,...one more try...
The reason this women's march needs to be cancelled...is because there are too many white people wanting to support it.
