Only black reporters allowed in Georgia mayoral race event!!!! Sounds racist....Am I right???? amirite?
| Race was front and center on Wednesday night during a meeting coordinated to garner support for just one black candidate in Savannah’s mayoral election.
With signs stating “Black press only” on the doors of the church where the meeting was held, white reporters were barred from entry, while black reporters for at least two television stations were permitted inside.
The event was coordinated by the Rev. Clarence Teddy Williams, owner of the consulting firm, The Trigon Group, who declined to discuss the entry policy. amirite?
Meeting attendees were given a handout reporting the ethnic composition of Savannah’s population, as well as a vote breakdown for the 2015 election, when incumbent Jackson was defeated in a run-off by current Mayor Eddie DeLoach.
Also distributed was an editorial in the black-owned Savannah Herald titled “United We Win, Divided We Lose” that was written by former Mayor Otis Johnson. In the piece, Johnson called on the black population to organize itself to increase its influence over what happens in the community, starting with the mayor and council.
“If we come together and decide what we want and who we believe will work best for us to get it, then we have a chance to advance,” he said.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....DOESN'T the law work both ways. Imagine if the sign said WHITE ONLY.....kind of racist....wouldn't you say????
