A women’s march rally has been cancelled over concerns the turnout would be “overwhelmingly white”.
The demonstration, in the town of Eureka in northern California, was due to take place on 19 January but the event has now been called off because it lacks representation from across the community.
Organisers said the decision, which comes amid friction in the wider women’s march movement, followed a number of conversations with leading local activists and supporters of the march.
“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” said a statement on Facebook. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organising team will take time for more outreach.”
Because white women can only have one perspective, right? This is the not-so-subtle bigotry of the Left. One’s views, perspectives, opinions, and values must be neatly defined by one’s outward characteristics like race, gender, etc. They can’t even compute that two white women might have radically different perspectives – much less that that’s perfectly okay.
