    WTF? Staged, ya don't say...Unbeiberable icon_rolleyes.gif


    http://www.inquisitr.com/1642537/michael-brown-racism-white-protestors-told-remain-unseen-during-michael-brown-vigil-in-toronto/


    The vigil demonstration could be seen as being “hampered” in this instance since anti-racism is the point people want to make, yet stage directions are handed out before appearing in front of global media.


    WHITE/NON BLACK ALLIES

    While we appreciate the solidarity shown by White and Non-Black POC, want to remind folks of some things:

    -Please refrain from taking up space in all ways possible. Remember that you are there in support of black folks, so should never be at the center of anything

    -Refrain from speaking to the media. Black voices are crucial to this

    -Stand behind black folks or between us and the police

    -If you see a cop harassing a black person, come in and engage. (chances are they are least likely to arrest you)

    Black racism against whites is very common, liberals prefer to claim it doesn't exist or that whites deserve it as retribution for slavery.

    This whole liberal vs conservative thing is getting old. I'm liberal when it comes to rights and freedoms, including right to owning firearms, and I see the aspect of racial tension when it comes to something like what this article is pointing out. So am I the same as a "bleeding heart" or am I an independent? To some political groups, if you're not with them, you're against them--and they throw a label on you in order to indicate you're opposite to their side of the issue, even if there's only one small point of contention!

    The way I'd put it, is: In my experience, I've seen several liberally-minded people who feel this sort of thing is somehow justified, that the minority class needs it's share of face-time, as it were. And though I feel that is true, I also feel that hiding faces that are part of the majority--but who support you--is one of the most foolish things you can do. You don't hide the faces of your allies, you bring them beside you on equal terms, and express support for one another at the same time. That's what equality would be.

    Here's my awesome analogy for the day:

    Cats and dogs get along. How do we know? We asked a group of dogs in one room, and a group of cats in another room, and they said, "yeah, we get along."
    That's not evident when they're in separate rooms! Seeing is believing! Get the cats in dogs in one room, and THEN have them declare their cooperation and support for one another! That way we'll know with greater certainty that what they say is accurate!

    Thanks for posting this and thereby documenting yet another anomaly of the so-called "civil rights movement." That it happened in Canada is no excuse.

    Not saying that this isn't true, but I doubt that the Inquisitr is a reliable source of news.

    Well that took some researching. It came from ONE campaign organizer - Bilan Arte.

    He posted it in the facebook page for the vigil.

    Christina Miniaci spoke. She's white, people.

    Here's what the vigil looked like:

    Thank you for following up on this Meninlove...

    Great to see what was generalized in one article in an attempt to "race-bait" was pointed back to a specific person.

    Riko, I didn't think the statements made by that organizer were that bad to begin with. Optics at such a vigil are important when it comes to news coverage, so I can see why there was a concern that it might appear to be a white organized vigil with black people merely attending.

    This vigil was also in support of a similar incident that happened up here in Toronto. icon_smile.gif

    Meninlove I will have to disagree because regardless of news coverage or not the statements can appear to come off as exclusive and offensive to non-blacks, which will only exacerbate the main issue here.... the main issue is another topic entirely.

    I do understand where you are coming and perhaps the better approach to this would have been to include a line that states "While we do appreciate our non-white supported we highly encourage black people to speak and etc..."

    I agree with you on all counts. It could have been worded FAR better, and your example is a good one. That said, Mr Arte at least used the word 'ask' rather than outright demanding. He should have considered the danger of alienating allies.

    Nonsense! What a ridiculous sweeping generalization.

    Perhaps I would be considered liberal. However, I am also well aware of black racism against whites which, while common in some areas, certainly is not universal. Moreover, I do not believe in inherited guilt, so I feel no guilt about slavery even though my late mother's grandparents owned slaves. Of course we must recognize it for the evil that it was. We must also recognize the evils of the Jim Crow years.

    We do have an obligation to work towards establishing a more just and fair society. That does not include free handouts to everyone who is poor, but rather, providing encouragement and opportunities while working against prejudice.

    Wow, one random person posted something on her Facebook page. Another misleading, made-up story from conservative media attempting to hide the real issues.

    @MeninLove: I think you were sugar-coating what happened.

    It happened in Toronto AND Ottawa, since both were organized by the same group.

    As reported by the Toronto Star:
    "The protest, arranged on Facebook, generated some backlash online when organizers suggested all white or non-black people stand at the back, don’t speak to media and “refrain from taking up space in all ways possible....During the protest, organizers called for white people to move to the back of the crowd; they did."

    [December 1, 2014]: Crowd gathers near U.S. consulate to chant in fury about Michael Brown decision

    sub-heading:
    Toronto protest over the shooting death of Michael Brown sparks online debate for asking white and non-black protestors to stand at the back and "refrain from taking up space."

    What's even more "shocking" is that so many are content to relive it by wallowing in and blaming everything on the past. That was then - several generations ago - this is now.

    YOW! Thanks for the info. That part I didn't know. (telling white people who were at the vigil to stand at the back)

    Yes.

    The fact is the officer expended 12 bullets executing someone in "self defense." That doesn't really add up. Michael Brown had been shot several times and was surrendering when the fatal bullet was fired into his head.
