Organizers Of Women's March Cancel Event Because There'd Be Too Many White Women

California organizers of a Women's March canceled their event because too many white people signed up.

Eureka, CA – Organizers of a Women’s March scheduled for Northern California in Humboldt County canceled the Jan. 19 event because the participants who had signed up were “overwhelmingly white.”

The organizers of the third annual march said in a press release that decision was made after numerous conversations between “local social-change organizers and supporters of the march,” Fox News reported.

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

The Humboldt County group said it was still interested in holding an event in March on International Women’s Day.

It was pointed out that Northern California community of about 137,000, is predominantly white, according to the Washington Times. Census Bureau data from July states that Humboldt County was 74 percent non-Hispanic white, 12 percent Hispanic, 6 percent Native American, 2 percent Asian, and 1 percent black, the Washington Times reported.

“I was appalled to be honest,” said Amy Sawyer Long, according to the Washington Times. “I understand wanting a diverse group. However, we live in a predominantly white area … not to mention how is it beneficial to cancel? No matter the race people still want their voices heard.”

One man offered to help recruit more minorities for the event if there was a chance it could still go on.

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

The rally would have celebrated the third anniversary of the original Women’s March. The first march was held on Jan. 21, 2017, when President Donald Trump took office. It was portrayed as a protest to Trump’s election.

Isn't the WOMEN'S Movement supposed to be about Women? Know there fighting amongst themselves over each others race. This group is imploding on itself. The leaders of this organization know must be liberals because there not happy unless they have a pessimistic view on everything and be able to push that view down your throat at any cost.

Substitute the phrase "white women" for any other nationality of women and these "organizers" would be out for blood screaming discrimination. This very action goes to prove that they don't even understand what discrimination really is. They only care about the protest and a chance to bash anyone who doesn't agree with them. I am one of the women who "broke" the glass ceiling by being one of the first woman in a regulatory law enforcement department ever. Not only did I succeed on my own merits and hard work I went on the supervise the entire statewide program. It is an extreme embarrassment for me to see what crybabies women have become after all the hard work that so many of us did to open the doors for them.
