Black Lives Matter says White People CANNOT Wear Their T-Shirts

A Toronto musician named SIMA XYN claimed she tried to buy a Black Lives Matter shirt and make a donation to the group during Toronto Pride week but was refused service because she is white.

BLM responded on Twitter on Saturday, tweeting that a volunteer told the musician that the “movement shirts are for “Black-identified folks.”

“Denying me service due to my race when I’m showing my support to the Toronto #blacklivematter movement is ironic and killing my human rights,” SIMA XYN tweeted.

BLM also tweeted that the musician could make a donation instead

So they're "don't use our drinking fountain"-ing everyone who isn't black or asian like the loud chick at the protest, but then they stop the protest about gay people and whine about the inclusion they're already receiving because WE LIVE IN FUCKING CANADA YOU STUPID FUCKING NIMRODS!!!

Obvious, but I just wanted to say it.

Yeah, I am generally supportive of BLM and a lot of what they stood for re: the police shootings in the US.

But the shit they pulled at Toronto Pride just sounded like separatist cuntery. It buys them nothing.

R9 : She's Turkish, she's basically white. Do you know any Turkish people? I do. You know what they look like? White people. Ask the BLONDE ones about that. Not all Turkish people look like the young turks newscaster dude, they look white. He's got an artificial power tan.

Regardless, she still didn't get the T-shirt because she wasn't black enough to care.

BLM morphing into a separatist movement changes the context of a lot of their past activism. I don't have any kind of ethical or philosophical problem with separatist movements, but I do wonder why BLM hasn't been flatly announcing their intentions. White folks wouldn't try to buy the shirts if they knew.

If they're determined to be that separatist, then why the fuck do they keep infiltrating places where they don't belong (like Pride)?

If what they're attempting to accomplish is mockery of their cause, good job. Way to alienate anyone who would normally give a shit. Their "lives" don't matter much if shit like this sets them off. How about these assholes go after people like Jay Z who actually does less than shit for the community where he grew up if they want no support from anyone who isn't black? People like him leave Bed-Stuy, make half a billion and couldn't give less of a shit about black people unless he can make money off of them and pretend to "care" about causes when really, he's only making money off if them.

I know a lady who worked on the pride parade this year and they are royally pissed off. BLM was invited as guests and no one argued the point. Then after what happened, they pretty much lost all their supporters at the pride committee, including people of colour.

What really pissed everyone off was that this parade was suppose to be for the victims in the Pulse shooting and BLM made it about themselves.

The head of the committee has already said he signed their demands to get the parade moving and has no intention of blocking police from attending nest year, or any year. BLM will not be invited as guests next year.

by Anonymousreply 23July 5, 2016 8:15 PM

R23 if they want to be in the parade they have to submit a float and pay the fee just like everyone else, they will not be given a free ride like happened this year. What will happen if they choose to crash the parade rather than participate like everyone else is up in the air.

The committee doesn't want to exclude anyone or use force on anyone so I guess BLM can have their little temper tantrum and realize that with each passing spectacle they lose more allies.

BLM said it's us or the police and the pride committee chose the police, and I support that.

They shouldn't have been invited as guests this year. They are NOT an LGBT organization, have no affiliation with any LGBT organizations and couldn't give two fucks about gay people. Anyone with a functioning eyeball can see that. So really this is Toronto Pride's fault and I guess they got what they deserved.

R28 according to my friend one of the BLM guys used an anti-gay slur while talking to some of the committee members and was finally told to be quiet by one of the women. I have to wonder how many actually were gay.

Canadian BLM groups are too much of "Me too!" mentality." Black Canadians have it pretty good compared to black Americans, yet they want people to believe it's like Compton up here.

If any of you had bothered to look at her past writings, you can see that the "founder" of BLM Canada is an outright black supremacist who subscribes to discredited nonsense like "melanin science" so none of this should be surprising. They're struggling to find Canadian black victims to fit their victimization narrative (the US version isn't much different in this respect) so they play up the handful of police shootings like Andrew "Hammertime" Loku like it's a genocide. Ignore these idiots.

I feel the same way. I liked that they took the shootings and other forms of police brutality. But, some of their antics have pissed me off. There was the incident at Dartmouth where a bunch of them ran into a library screaming Black Lives Matter and getting in the faces of white students who were just in the library to study. The shit at Toronto Pride also pissed me off.

In the video at R42 the reporter makes the point of what would happen if a black person tried to buy a tee shirt from a white group and was told the shirts couldn't be sold to a person of color. the professor of course goes into a spiel about false equivalencies, the long history of whites suppressing blacks, etc. So, in other words, it's okay is an oppressed minority discriminates against someone belonging to the majority because turn-about is fair play?
