BAKERSFIELD—In a recent effort to tackle race relations, some county social workers were sent to New Orleans to a conference held by the National Association of Black Social Workers.

Brian Parnell said he and his co-workers attended the conference, but Parnell said he wasn’t allowed inside because of the color of his skin.

Parnell is Caucasian, and he said he never made it in the conference.

BAKERSFIELD - In a recent effort to tackle race relations, some county social workers were sent to New Orleans to a conference held by the National Association of Black Social Workers.

Brian Parnell said he and his co-workers attended the conference, but Parnell said he wasn’t allowed inside because of the color of his skin.

Parnell is Caucasian, and he said he never made it in the conference.

“I approached the registration table and was greeted by a very friendly fellow who looked me in the eye and said, ‘Are you black?’” said Parnell. “I told him that I'm not and he told me that the conference was only for people who were black and so I wasn't able to register to attend the conference.”

Convinced the individual had mis-spoke, Parnell said he contacted his fellow co-workers and his superior in Bakersfield.

“I was able to speak with a conference chair at the conference who basically reiterated to me the same thing that Brian has been told,” said, Parnell’s supervisor, Pat Cheadle.

Why does this surprise you? Most of the people that these social workers actually help are any race other than white.

I would not want to attend such a meeting. Nor would most other whites. So what's the big deal? I have nothing against colored folks...cept social workers..lol

I'm neither surprised at this article, nor particularly alarmed. They had every right to exclude anyone they wanted.

I'm also sure that had a black been excluded from a similar meeting, all hell would have broken loose in the news.

I once saw an advertisement for an "ALL BLACK RODEO" to be held on Long Island. Didn't attend the event, but felt then as now that it would certainly have been an interesting thing to see. I felt no ill will toward the participants or the promoters.... I similarly have no negative comments about those who did choose to attend.

Again however, I think that an advertisement for an "ALL WHITE RODEO" would have been met with far different reaction.

I think most folks in our religious/ethnic/racial MELTING POT really want to get along, but the rules are frequently vague.

Here in Birmingham, UK, it is common news to hear about muggings and attacks, but I have never once seen a racist attack against a white person/persons.

When 15 white guys beat up 5 asian guys it is a racist attack.
When 15 asian guys beat up 5 white guys why is it never reported as a racist attck?

I'm not trying to start an arguement just wondering why this is generally the case.

Something similar happen here in Toronto. A white guy in a pool hall trying to defend a pregnant girl was dragged out by a gang and beatened, and stab to death. It was not considered a hate crime. The gang was non white.

This mind set behind the media not attaching the parse "hate crime" was an attempt to prevent the spread of racism, but hipocracy will only create more. If issues aren’t addressed things will just get worse for every one.

The irony of the article is enough to expose the US American dual standard on racism.

How is it the National Association of Black Social Workers, in an effort to “to tackle race relations” gain or maintain any future creditability or confidence with continued practices and policies as cancerous and arrogant as advocated by the association.

It is politically and socially correct that 'Racism' and 'Racist' actions are only committed by caucasians. Under the political ideology of the liberal left and even now, the conservative right, so-called minority peoples, because they are minorities, are incapable of racism as racist victimisation is only applied to non-caucasian peoples.

Get-it?


It called a double standard, but logically the 'blacks only' meeting was a separatist meeting in that they wanted separation from all other races.
It can be considered 'racist' due to the content of the meeting if it was only black-centric, i.e. the content was regarding black issues only. Which would place it outside of the accepted use of 'racist' in that there was no negative connotation.

After reading the article and checking the organisations website I found this...


The NABSW was founded in May, 1968, in San Francisco. This organization was formed in response to issues related to providing human services in the Black community, educating social workers for effective service in the Black community, and providing opportunities for participation of Black social workers in the social welfare arena. Membership in NABSW is open to Black people working in human services and is not predicated upon degree or experience. There are chapters throughout the country.
The key statement appears to be providing opportunities for participation of Black social workers in the social welfare arena which defines the intention of the group to educate and train only black persons for work in the black community. This can be considered overt negative racism as they openly and knowingly exclude persons from all other ethnic groups.

To me, it appears that they are out of touch with the times and mired in the sad hard left swing of the political pendulum of the 1960's. All I can say is - hey, the Panthers are gone folks.

The National Association of Black Social Workers is the most racist professional group in America. It's agenda is absolutely detrimental to race relations and, in the case of black children who are in need of foster and adoptive homes, is incredibly racist and harmful to child welfare. Any white Social Worker who doesn't know this probably believes that the earth is flat. Beyond that, the blacks in New Orleans are flagrantly racist.

Grady as I was reading this I was hoping you would see it and give us a perspective from the point of view of Social Worker.

On a personal note - I get miffed when I see advertising for "The Black Miss America", a "Black Rodeo, the "Black Music Awards" I have never understood why it is politically correct to do that when it would be the worst thing possible to advertise all of the above with only one word changed making it only white events.

This was a good find XphilesPhan

The argument that, having been excluded in the past, blacks were forced to form their own groups, has a basis in fact, however, after nearly four decades of "affirmative action," such groups are anachronistic, at best, and an insult, if taken a face value. That such a thing would take place in New Orleans is not surprising, but, given that Dorothy Mae Taylor took it upon herself to destroy the old-line Mardi Gras krewes fifteen years ago on the basis of their restrictive membership rules, which, by the way, are classist, not racist, makes such a thing all the more ironic. Moreover, such things are not uncommon, they just rarely make the news.

That such a group exists in the field of Social Work is even more ironic and really goes to show that the appeasement politics of the National Association of Social Workers just do not work. One cannot expect reason from the unreasonable.

if blacks were better represented in white mainstream society, they wouldn't need a black miss america, a black rodeo or a black music awards show. most black people who created and support such events do so because they were tired of waiting around for white mainstream society to include them.

this is just yet one mor example of the "revere racisim" that is rampent in north america today.it is a sad fact that the national employment and insurance agency in canada ha "special programs" available ONLY TO NON-MAJORITY PEOPLES. programs such as special access to trining and improvement courses. THE FACT IS THAT THIS IN IT'S SELF I DESCRIMINATION seemss to matter not.instead of becomeing less discriminatory we hve just created the opposit. thi in and of it's self ACTUALY CREATES RACISIM on the part of those that are being unjustly biased against. in fact all it does is CREAT HATE.

now the normal defence of these things is to try to equilize things for everyone because so many oppertunities are only SUPOSIDLY open to the majority. this is a FALICY i am a WHITE MALE, i have NEVER had any ETRA OPERTUNITIES. in fact i constantly face discrimination in trying to find better employment. i COULD NOT AFFORD to go to collage, but there was few opertunities to get the help i would have needed as those are reserved for minorities. i have been told many time that i can not be hired as companie need to get minoritie to be in line with hireing practice law. i have even seen newspaper add BY THE GOVERNMENT THAT STATE QUITE BOLDLY THAT WHITE MALES WII NOT BE CONSIDDERED. i have also been told that i can not be hired as i would not be able to function as i do not have the ability to understand instructions because ENGLISH is not well known within the company.

o it seems that the "majority" is constantly subjected to predidical views against the. there was even a case of a new houseing developement only being advertized and sold to chinees. why was this permitted? if i had tried the same thing i would have been in jail in 1 day for predudace. but when it is a "minority group" NO PROBLEM?


you know it is a sad fact that i had always supported equil rights as i felt that race skin colour, sex ect had no place in determining someones worth. but more and more i hate these minorities that have been given handouts at everyturn while i can not seem to be alowed to get ahead.

There is no such thing as reverse racism. There is only racism.

i use the term because it seems to be that in this age of political correctness, that raceisim can only be aplied to things for the "minorities" but doss not exist if racist practices are used againt the "majority". thus the term "REVERSE RACEISIM".
