California Women’s March Cancelled Because Participants Are “Overwhelmingly White”

California Women’s March Cancelled Because Participants Are “Overwhelmingly White”

Christina Sommers points out the “Central fallacy of intersectional feminism: It fights racism and sexism by rigidly categorizing everyone by race and sex”

We’ve been covering the Women’s March here at LI since its inception, including its January 2017 exclusion of pro-life feminists, and have been closely following revelations of the group’s rampant anti-Semitism.  From closed chapters to cancelled marches and lost sponsors, the Women’s March is flailing due to its leadership’s associations with and defense of vile anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

It seems that anti-Semitism is not the group’s only problem: the California Women’s March scheduled for next month has been cancelled because leadership fears it will be “too white.”

KRCR News reports:

The organizers of the annual Women’s March have decided not to hold a rally in Eureka on Jan. 19, as previously planned, because they say participants do not represent the diversity of the area.

“This decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march,” organizers said in a press release.

. . . . “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the press release went on to say.

“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.”

According to the Washington Times, Humboldt county, where the march was scheduled to take place, is 74% non-Hispanic white (i.e. higher than the 60% national non-Hispanic white population).

The move was immediately criticized by both Women’s March supporters and detractors.

Newsweek reports:

The announcement was met with criticism from some social media users.

“I was appalled to be honest,” Amy Sawyer Longwrote on Facebook. “I understand wanting a diverse group. However, we live in a predominantly white area…not to mention how is it beneficial to cancel? No matter the race people still want their voices heard.”

David Holper added: “I was really saddened to hear that the march won’t be happening this year. Isn’t there still time to reach out to minority groups and pull this together?”

Political Correctness is now preventing Liberals from protesting. We need to figure out how to use this to our advantage.

    There an old saying that goes something like, “When your opponent is self-destructing, don’t do anything to interrupt it.”

    Obviously, the Black Women, & Men, Are much more Patriotic, & intelligent, than the ‘WHITE’S? HERE, is “proof” of what i been “blogging”, continuously………The liberization of “CALIFORNICATION”, has gone “over the top! There is no longer any sanity in the Demonrat Party! It’s all about “HATE…..HATE…..HATE, TRUMP, & No longer any Legislation going to happen for 2 more years! The Liberals, in this country, no longer care about America, Our American people, &/or the Constitution…It’s all “SELF, SELF, SELF,, ME, ME, ME……Are we getting tired of this yet?

“… the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives …”

Got that? Skin pigmentation = “perspective.” Appearance determines thought.

Liberalism at its finest.

    Diversity dogma or color judgment is based on low information “color” (e.g. ethnicity, sex, gender) attributes.

    Liberalism is divergent. Progressivism is monotonic. Conservatism mitigates the risk of catastrophic anthropogenic climate change. Principles matter.

    I’m guessing it is only a matter of time before the left disavows MLK because he did not want to judge people by the color of their skin

Insufficiently diverse. Selective-child… selective-Person, too.

Useful idiots who will be purged should the antifa and their ilks take over.

Well. I’m overwhelmingly white, and I had no plans to show up. Good thing, too.

Baloney.

They canceled it because they were outed as a mob of Jew-haters. They didn’t plan on that leaking out – and if it did, not enough people would care.

What scum – GOPe aside – has infested our country’s political system.

White women you are next! Too late…you got exactly what you asked for from these bigoted fools.

Humboldt county…is 74% non-Hispanic white

Which is 26% containing the ‘diversity’ that the organizers sought. Apparently, most of this 26% non-participant crowd had better things to do with their time. The organizers might want to inquire into what those things are…?

The 21st century compromise: perhaps they could put in their charter, “A white person shall count for three fifths of all other Persons”?

But once this is implemented, how much shall a man who claims he’s a woman yet is biologically male be counted (for purposes of enumerating how many women actually marched in a women’s march)?

While the feminist movement was originally designed to address inequities in the treatment afforded the sexes, it went the way of the civil rights movement and became a vehicle to elevate women to a superior status, in our country, and allow for the enrichment of its leadership. It is amazing that all of these “equality” movements are not interested in equality at all, but in establishing dominance for the group which it purports to represent. Now, it is being used to advocate for specific groups and classes of women, at the expense of other groups and classes of women. I am happy to see it collapse, just as I would be happy to see the racial grievance industry [aka civil rights movement] collapse. Both have not only outlived their usefulness, but have become horribly corrupt.
