The Shocking Thing Mike Brown Protesters Just Said About White People Proves How Racist They Are

Can you imagine the outcry, and rightly so, if blacks were told to stand behind whites at any protest or event? 


As protests extend from Ferguson, Mo., to include violent and disruptive demonstrations across the nation and beyond, one event staged in Canada is gaining some especially negative criticism due to its implementation of blatantly race-based rules.  
The Toronto protest held earlier this week boasted a list of guidelines for white and non-black allies who chose to take part.
Among the rules posted in a social media description of the protest was the very general instruction that whites “refrain from taking up space in all ways possible.”

In general, anyone not deemed black enough by organizers were expected to willingly be relegated to second-class status.
“Remember that you are there in support of black folks,” the guidelines asserted, “so [you] should never be at the centre of anything.”
Furthermore, anything non-blacks had to say on behalf of the protest was considered insignificant.

“Refrain from speaking to the media,” organizers instructed. “Black voices are crucial to this.”
Only blacks were permitted to have a prominent role in the demonstration – though there was one very conspicuous caveat to that rule.
“Stand behind black folks or between us and the police,” the rules stated.
Though whites and those of other races were told their presence was not only unimportant but should be ignored at all costs, it was deemed incumbent upon them to jump in at the first sign of any potential danger.
“If you see a cop harassing a black person,” the guidelines stated, “come in and engage.”
