    Women’s March Canceled Due to ‘Overwhelmingly White’ Participants

    Enjoy.

    Women’s March Canceled Due to ‘Overwhelmingly White’ Participants

    It looks like the infamous Women’s March is in trouble. Organizers canceled the march that was scheduled on Jan. 19 in Eureka, California. What could cause such a thing? Too many white participants.

    KRCR-TV reported that organizers claimed participants did not represent the diversity of the area, so they felt it best to cancel the event.
    “This decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march,” the media release read.

    “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community. Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.

    “Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”

    However, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Eureka’s population is just over 75 percent white.

    Hispanics and Latinos make up approximately 11 percent of the population, and Asians make up approximately 7 percent of the population. Based on that, a representative showing would be mostly white.

    If it is a “women’s march,” how does race even come into it? If it about women, why aren’t all women being welcomed and given a “voice” as participants?

    According to The Washington Times, a number of people on Facebook expressed their displeasure with the decision and pointed out that, as the Census Bureau figures show, the area is predominantly white.

    To some others, the march has always been predominantly white. With some white males in the mix.

    This movement has ALWAYS been nothing but white angry liberal females. As long as they are diversifying, these men-hating rabble rousers should recruit some males for gender balance. There are only 3 in the crowd. They must be their tokens. https://t.co/K4okr4xpgK

    While they didn’t tell white women and men not to show up for future marches, the message could be taken as such. It seems they believe their power is not in numbers but in “diversity,” even where there is little in a given area.

    Not that they’d explicitly tell white women not to come to a women’s rights march, just if there’s too many of them it makes for bad optics. I wonder if during civil rights movement it was less explicit or they told any group, sorry, too many of you peoplehttps://t.co/0dOBAPMX7y
    — Jared DuBois (@JaredDuBois) December 29, 2018

    This appears to make the march more about optics than reality and more about social justice than the empowerment of all women.

    When your progressivism becomes so progressive that you no longer qualify to have a voice and you have to take away your own right to free speech. You can’t make this up.
    Calif․ organizers cancel Women’s March for being too white https://t.co/8koEvEXJEi via @washtimes

    Meanwhile, other marches across the country, including in Washington, D.C., are still scheduled to occur on that date. An announcement about the event notes that it “marks two years of resistance to the Trump presidency.”

    What are they resisting? Under Donald Trump’s presidency, unemployment for women has dropped. And in terms of diversity, unemployment also dropped for Hispanics and blacks.

    For now, it seems that it doesn’t really have to be about women or even make sense. Keeping up with the current talking points, such as “whites are bad,” is all that matters.

    HHHAAAHHHHAAAAHHHHAAAAAA!!!

    ok, wait. Let me catch my breath.

    HHAAAAHHHHHAAHHOWEEEHAHHHAAAAAAAA!

    That there is what you call the oxymoron of liberal logic. Why didn't they just close the local welfare offices and bus 'em in? Problem solved and social media posts made. I guess these 'planners' did not realize that outrage doesn't just happen, it is made.

    Interesting. Who would've thought that the only women who would have time on their hands to waste an entire day doing shit like this would be white women? The most oppressed group in society! Where are the coloured ladies? Oh, yeah, they don't even want to be around these bitches either.
    They should go to the projects and slums and get the women there to come out and support. Promise them a food card or some cash or something.

    Maybe those Hispanics and blacks didn't want a bunch of white women speaking for them because they don't speak the same language. That's hilarious! Who's the racist now?

    There is another front in that they are fighting over religion vs atheism. They are fracturing because the pursuit of victimhood olympics results in everyone being a Loser.

    Let's really dissect this shall we?

    * Feminism has always been and will continue to be a dividing force.
    * It is mostly aimed at Western (White) societies as a further means of reducing white birth rates and disrupting society in general.
    * Many non white women, especially those from more traditional cultures would find it offensive and counter productive to work against their own men in the way that white women work against theirs.
    * It can no longer be ignored that Socialism destroys any society that it infects. Many of these non white women have come from countries that had Socialist governments.
    * As the article states 75% of the area this march was to be held in is actually white.

    Now, if an uneducated dick like myself can understand why non white women didn't turn up then what is the problem with these educated white liberal women and their confusion?

    Rhetorical question. We all know what their problem is.

    "Everyone's a loser!" and the "I'm a bigger loser than you are!" such wonderful slogans and they express the cult of the victim so well.

    Maybe feminists of color don't like white feminists.
    White feminists are just so entitled and CUNTY.

    Look up womanism and you will see that it is basically more honest about its Marxist roots. For those that do not know womanism is founded upon Caribbean and West African women that feel that western feminism is not representative of their world views. Womanism is still feminism at its core but it doesn't ignore class struggle ideas which is what inspired feminism in the first place. Womanism tries to present itself more humanitarian compared to militant western feminism. But in truth any Marxist class struggle by definition is militant so I don't buy the hand waving done by womanist activists. I know this because I had this discussion with an American man many times that proclaims himself to be a communist. Communists believe that through activism is how militant class struggle is achieved so that does not surprise me.

    In the end ideologies that try to direct people toward a goal as a collective is counter productive. While people have compared religion and philosophy as herd mentalities by lumping the two together it isn't always the case. This is because most religions and philosophies on earth rely on the choices of the individual, and not necessarily the choices of a group. That is why cults are considered a small subset of religion.

    I'm guessing it would have been racist to bus in some minorities?

    More likely the minorities have standards, and wouldn't be caught dead marching with a bunch a bunch a entitled whitebread's. As well as having to make a living. Oh Mr. boss, can I go to the protest with the rich honkie bitch's tomorrow?
