...While children are invited to attend, white people are explicitly banned from the meeting, according to the Facebook event page.
...One Twitter user pointed out that Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. worked side by side with whites to accomplish his goals. Philly Black
Lives Matter responded by saying that was King’s decision.
The group also referred to Malcolm X, saying he too had banned whites from his meetings on race.
Racism isn't a good thing, be thankful you don't experience it.
Oh, so you know all of our stories, do you?
Let me fill you in a little more, because I think you might be short on facts.
When I was about twelve years old, I lived in a small UK town, and in that town White folk were outnumbered by Asian folk.
I wasn't only verbally abused, I was violently assaulted on several occasions simply because of my skin colour.
In fact, I did become friends with two Asian brothers about my age, and the one time I was invited to their house their mum and older brother came
home, saw whitey sat on the sofa watching cartoons, and went ballistic.
I never saw them again, which was hard as I was living in a children's home at the time, about 200 miles from my nearest family member, and they were
really the only friends that I had.
Fast forward a few years, I'm back on my home island.
The population of the island I live on was around 90-100,000 people at the time.
Over 50% of the population are either immigrants or the offspring of immigrants.
I couldn't get certain jobs doing certain things, because I'm a whitey and I don't speak the lingo, this still very much holds true in the workplace
today, I know people who have been bullied out of the workplace because they're 'local'.
There's a street that I used to live next to that has been almost entirely bought up by an immigrant (with a very dodgy past, but I digress).
On that street is a cafe owned by said person that sells breakfast rolls. I like breakfast rolls.
Do you want to know what it's like for a whitey going in there, or pretty much any shop on that street?
It goes from loud enthusiastic chatter to instant silence, stares, and sh***y attitude.
They don't pass you your change, they throw it at you.
Don't assume that you know what others have been through and are going through, because unless you know them personally and you've heard their
stories, you don't know jack.
People of 'colour' aren't the only folk who experience racism, in my homeland, I'm the person of colour, the outsider, the one who doesn't speak the
I'm the one subjected to the racism.
I'm not trying to offend anyone here, but this whole 'whitey can't experience racism because he's a whitey' nonsense seriously gets on my nipples.

And meanwhile and for as long as human's with dark skin have existed woman with more fair skin are seen as more attractive, nothing to do with
Northern Europeans whom were just Naturally pale but because dark skin is seen as lower caste in almost all nations of the world, Arabs keep there
woman rapped up and that makes them paler than they would be as well.
Humanity has ALWAYS seen pale skinned ladies as beautiful, the notable exception in the Bible is the song of Solomon.
5I am dark yet lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon. 6Do not stare because I am dark, for the sun
has gazed upon me.
