Any white leftists who want to support Black Lives Matter in Philadelphia are going to have an issue. White people banned from Black Lives Matter meetings in Philly.
Per the Daily Caller:
The April 15 meeting plans to discuss projects and initiatives for the upcoming year and act as a place for people to “meet, strategize and organize.” While children are invited to attend, white people are explicitly banned from the meeting, according to the Facebook event page.
When people began questioning the ban on whites over Twitter, Black Lives Matter Philly stayed by their ban, explaining that their meetings are “black centered.”
Anyone who identifies as “African disapora” is allowed to attend, the group explained over Twitter.
“If you identify as a person of the African Diaspora You can attend our meetings and become a member. If not you can support us in other ways,” Philly BLM said in a tweet. “African Disapora” usually refers to people who were taken out of Africa during the Transatlantic Slave Trades.
The social media accounts for this group are every bit as ridiculous as you’d think. Check it out.
White People Banned From Black Lives Matter in Philadelphia
Just to make sure we erase all doubt…
The group was asked about Martin Luther King and how he worked alongside whites during civil rights moments. Here’s their response.
As you could imagine, many people backed Black Lives Matter Philadelphia for their ban of white people from their meetings. Those with a brain pointed out the insanity.

@BLMPhilly Lol this is pure comedy. The moment white people hold a whites only meeting you'll be the first to cry racism
