    Ah, intersectionality.... A predominantly white area can't have a march because it's "too white."

    Calif. organizers cancel Women's March for being too white
    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...ing-too-white/

    Organizers of the Women’s March in Humboldt County, California, announced Friday that they have canceled the local Jan. 19 event because the marchers are overwhelmingly white.

    In a Facebook statement, the group said it opted to nix the third annual march “after many conversations between local social-change organizations and supporters of the march,” saying they would work on how to “broaden representation in the organizing committee.”

    “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” said the statement. “Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach.”

    ...Some followers on Facebook said they were disappointed in the decision.

    “I was saddened to hear that the March is off for 1/19,” said David Holper. “Isn’t there still time to reach out to minority groups and make this event more inclusive? I’d be happy to help.”

    Others pointed out that the Northern California community of about 137,000, located near the Oregon border, is predominantly white.

    Census Bureau data from July showed that the county was about 74 percent non-Hispanic white, 12 percent Hispanic, 6 percent Native American, 2 percent Asian, and 1 percent black.

    Anger over Farrakhan ties prompts calls for Women’s March leaders to resign

    With two months to go until the Women’s March returns to the District for the third time, organizers have plenty to think about — the logistics, the issues, the implications of a historic election that put more than 120 women in office.

    Instead, they’re dealing with the fallout of a controversy that just won’t go away.

    Regional chapters, allies and some of the movement’s most visible supporters have turned their backs on the national group, saying they won’t rejoin until the four women at the helm denounce and cut ties with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

    Others, including Teresa Shook, a retired lawyer who launched the Women’s March two years ago with a single Facebook post, went a step further and called for the removal of national co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour.

    Apparently, the Tablet article (linked above) is SO threatening to the Wimmins March antisemites, that they are sending out these kinds of notices:

    The notices are being sent out by a company called Megaphone Strategies. This company was co-founded by Van Jones.

    Have these fools ever checked out the demographics of Humboldt County?

    2000
    As of the 2000 census, the population of Humboldt County was 126,518. As of that census, there were 51,238 households in Humboldt County, and the population density was 35 people per square mile (14/km2). By 2006, the population was projected to have increased to 131,361 by the California Department of Finance. There were 55,912 housing units at an average density of 16 per square mile (6/km2). The racial makeup of the county was 84.7% White, 0.9% Black or African American, 5.7% Native American, 1.7% Asian, 0.2% Pacific Islander, 2.5% from other races, and 4.4% from two or more races. ...
    ...
    The 2010 United States Census reported that Humboldt County had a population of 134,623. The racial makeup of Humboldt County was 109,920 (81.7%) White, 1,505 (1.1%) African American, 7,726 (5.7%) Native American, 2,944 (2.2%) Asian, 352 (0.3%) Pacific Islander, 5,003 (3.7%) from other races, and 7,173 (5.3%) from two or more races.
    Maybe they're hoping for more Rachel Dolezal Blacks and Elizabeth Warren Native Americans to show up?

    Why isn't the march called "No White Women's March"?
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    These demographics are mentioned in the article. And in order to understand the cancellation, you need to understand who is running the Women's March.

    The national Women's March was "co-chaired" by Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez (and up to a month ago, Linda Sarsour). Most of the original white women (including Jewish women) who got together on Facebook and created the march either left or were pushed aside. There are two white women left, from what I understand.

    According to an article in the Tablet Mallory, Perez and Sarsour were working on racial issues exclusively until they were connected (by Michael Skolnik) to the white women who wanted the march to happen. These women made the mistake of asking Skolnik to have "women of color" represented. He complied, with three racial activists. Tamika is particularly militant, her parents having been founding members of Al Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN), where Tamika began working as a teenager. She became NAN's executive director at 28. Both she and Sarsour are connected to the Nation of Islam and have been protected by NOI guards, even as they were leading the Women's March. Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour were also very active in the Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner protests.

    From the beginning, according to the Tablet, the three WOC demanded a front seat and got it. From the beginning, however, they apparently also started insulting the Jewish women in the movement, which caused the founding Jewish member to leave the March eventually. THIS is who is running the Women's March. Color comes FIRST--everything else second, including gender, LGBT, disabilities, etc. You really need to read the Tablet article to get a feel for what happened.

    Even though the Women's March has made A LOT of money, none of it is being used to fund state marches around the country. (Read the article to see what looks like theft of March funds.) However, the state marches are taking their cue from the national march, which, of course, is being run by racial activists.

    This is why intersectionality will be the downfall for white women. People identify first by RACE, then by gender or anything else. In the same way that the OJ verdict shocked white women--black women chose color over gender issues (like domestic violence)--the Women's March story will eventually shock them into seeing how their cause was commandeered by some aggressive racial activists into something else entirely. When you can't even march as white women--for fear of offending black and Hispanic women--you have effectively lost your political voice. That is what has been happening to white women over the past two decades. Intersectionality means that militant black women get to call the shots. Period.

    From the American Thinker:

    https://www.americanthinker.com/arti...rossroads.html

    ...But the inconsistency between the views and associations of the march leaders and the useful idiots who followed their call was highlighted in recent weeks when the media were compelled to finally report what had been known for a long time but kept hidden from credulous consumers of their pap: the Women’s March leaders were linked inextricably to Louis Farrakhan, an anti-Semite, anti-homosexual, anti-white propagandist who spreads lies about slavery -- ignoring the most significant role of Moslems in it even to this day.

    And the press hid the fact that women like Linda Sarsour were all in for Sharia, the religious-legal system that more than any other punishes women, gays, and blacks. Sharia creates the submission culture that keeps the poor at the bottom with little chance of upward mobility and society at such a low level of productivity that environmental protection and proper healthcare are unaffordable, and legitimizes slavery, which continues in places like North Africa. Indeed, her anti-American point of view was known months before the march in 2017 but barely, if at all, covered by the mainstream media.

    ...And while I’ve emphasized Linda Sarsour, it’s clear that she is far from the only anti-Semite, anti-white leader of the Women’s March charade.

    Organizer Tamika Mallory argues that the very creation of Israel was a human rights violation and objected to the ADL being part of a group tagged to help Starbucks anti-bias work. And then there’s Carmen Perez:

    Carmen Perez’s Jew-hatred became an issue this weekend when Jewish co-founder of Women’s March movement said she was forced out because by Perez and Mallory because of her Jewish Heritage.

    Vanessa Wruble, a Brooklyn-based activist, said she told the group that her Jewish heritage inspired her to try to help repair the world. But she said the conversation took a turn when Tamika Mallory, a black gun control activist, and Carmen Perez, a Latina criminal justice reform activist, replied that Jews needed to confront their own role in racism. [snip]...

    ...Another Women’s March founder Rasmea Yousef Odeh is no longer in America, she was deported in October 2017 for concealing her murder/conviction of two Israeli college students....
