Black Lives Matter has banned whites from attending an upcoming event in Philadelphia, designating it as “black only.”
The April 15 meeting will plan projects and initiatives for the upcoming year as well as serving as a “black only space” for people—well, those who are the right color— to “meet, strategize and organize.” Whites are explicitly banned from the meeting, according to the organization’s Facebook event page.
When criticism began coming over Twitter, Black Lives Matter Philly explained that their meetings are “black centered.”
As Ethics Alarms has stated repeatedly.
While reminding all that the Democratic Party still officially endorses BLM and thus its hypocritical anti-white racism as well, there is this:
“Everyone who reviewed your application was inspired by your passion, determination, accomplishments and heart.”
On Twitter, some Black Lived Matters supporters expressed indignation that a non-black (the student is Muslim) could use the slogan to bet admitted. Wrote one,
“Yeah I’m not sure I find this cute or heartwarming, no way a black kid could get rewarded for doing the same thing. When I/we talk about black struggle being used by non-black folks for social capital and material gain, this is what’s meant by it. This looks much nastier coming from non-black folks of color than from white people. Because they help meet the ‘diverse but SAFE’ quota.”
No applicant of any color should be admitted after such transparent virtue-signalling. Ahmed didn’t even answer the question. Stanford will now admit a student based on political grandstanding for a racist organization? Such an answer is signature significance for a pompous, likely trouble-making, jerk, and Stanford’s embarrassing reaction to it is signature significance for a university on the skids.
I wonder if Ahmed knows that BLM wouldn’t let him attend that meeting in Philadelphia.
