Culture Clash in Seattle

The cultural intersectional battles in Seattle are coming to a town near you.

Organizers of the black-exclusive event, coined “Take B(l)ack Pride,” advertised that “white allies and accomplices are welcome to attend, but will be charged a $10 to $50 reparations fee (and given a wrist band as proof of payment.” The ad suggested that the funds raised will go towards subsidizing black and brown trans and queer members as well as performers at the parade.

In an interview with National Review, Capitol Hill Pride Director Charlette LeFevre confirmed her group’s rejection of the initiative and clarified their own mission: “We’re all inclusive, not exclusive.”


After reading Capitol Hill Pride’s statement, Seattle City Council president and mayoral candidate M. Lorena González decided to withdraw from Capitol Hill Pride’s festival.


“I will no longer be attending Capitol Hill Pride after reading their letter to the Seattle Human Rights Commission,” she said.


“After a year that has taken an unbelievable toll on all of our communities, I was looking forward to this opportunity to celebrate Pride in person. However, I simply cannot support an organization that is trying to stop Black people in the LGBTQ+ community from celebrating Pride in the manner that they choose,” she added.

    More liberal racism.
    Democrats are the home of racists, from before the civil war to today.
    Liberals talk about systemic racism and yet liberals and Democrats are the ones who are the racists. They have a long history of racism and it vo tinues today.
    From providing horrible education in the inner cities, defunding the police, to letting the criminals out on the street in the inner cities, to denying kids a good education through school choice, to the woke people, and much more.

    You can come to our all-inclusive PRIDE event that celebrates “everyone” so long as you pay if you are white and wear a shackle around your wrist to point out that you are not our kind of free. That IS progressive to a liberal.
