KRCR ABC News: California organizers cancel Women's March due to 'overwhelmingly white' participants
This is yet another example of how absurd identity politics has become. It is codified racism in many respects. But you know, "good" racism. That whole "content of one's character" thing was just a bunch of nonsense - right?
It seems that the "women's march" people in Eureka California don't like that it's full of "white" people. Which is strange because Eureka California is full of "white" people. According to the 2010 census (the most recent) Eureka's demographics break down like this;
The 2010 United States Census reported that Eureka had a population of 27,191. The population density was 1,881.3 people per square mile (726.4/km²). The racial makeup of Eureka was 21,565 (79.3%) White, 514 (1.9%) African American, 1,011 (3.7%) Native American, 1,153 (4.2%) Asian, 176 (0.6%) Pacific Islander, 1,181 (4.3%) from other races, and 1,591 (5.9%) from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino people of any race were 3,143 persons (11.6%).
So basically the "women's march" people didn't want to have the march because it wouldn't be a good enough photo op. The sea (pond?) of "white" faces wouldn't reflect the "reality" they wanted to covey. It screws up their narative. Which is also odd because aside from the fact that the march is cancled no one cared about the Eureka "women's march" anyway. At least outside of tiny (but we hear lovely) Eureka.
Have the march. Put the call out. If your cause is righteous people will respond. Don't cancel it because the hue of the marchers isn't fashionable in your eyes.
(How do people who call themselves "woke" not see the ridiculous nature of the PC fad? How do they not see that the entire hierarchy critique is built on sand and one that is deeply destructive not only to society, and rational thought, but to themselves fundamentally?)
"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."
