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.

Hate to say it but all this shows is that the people doing all the crying about inequality and not having the opportunity want it for nothing. Get out there and put in the work walk in the protest dont just reap what other people have done for your group. To cancel a protest because there were to many women from one race kind of shows it's not about women's rights.

Maybe they could pay non white women to march, like they paid off those coming up from South America........just my thoughts.
