U of Missouri students

Concerned that sympathetic, well-meaning white people are diluting the cause, a Ferguson, MO. protest group asked white students not to participate in a recent black-only "die-in" at the University of Missouri.

From The College Fix:

Organizers of a recent Ferguson protest at the University of Missouri requested “only people of color” take part in the event’s “die-in,” one element of a larger demonstration that prompted at least two classes to be shelved so students could participate.

“During the demonstration we will hold a ‘die-in’ in the student center. We are asking that only people of color be the ones to do so,” event organizers stated in an email obtained by The College Fix. “We are asking non-people of color to stand holding hands in solidarity.”

“The ‘die-in’ is meant to represent black bodies that are killed unjustly. It was requested that others stand in a circle holding hands,” student Ebony Francis told The College Fix in a telephone interview.

      I hope Blacks continue to protest and raise awareness of the disproportionate and unfair treatment that seems to be meted out on a consistent basis.

      Seems like they are still participating... they wanted the people of color to lay on the ground while the others hold hands in unity... they are showing how many slain black people have died.... the people that aren't of color are showing unity around the people laying down.... what is the problem.... I mean did I miss something here :shrugs:

      I am glad that Whites are joining the fight against injustice. I hppe they teach their kids how to love people and not base treatment on the color of one's skin.

      Even so, they still have access to privilege, something minorities have been historically and categorically denied.

      On one note its sad that you have to have so many yts join a protest for people to understand that something is an issue but at the same time it brings attention to the movement to show that it is just not a race issue with polic brutality but a civil right violation.

      But the write-up don't go with what actually happened. They didn't say they couldn't participate, only that they didn't want them to lie down. Instead they should hold hands to show the support of it...or am I reading it wrong? Where is OTB? Is this one of those cul-de-sac moments?

      I don't care about the deaf ears. I care about the ones that are perky.

      The protesting and looting is falling to deaf ears.

      If my logic is wrong help me understand something better. All Im saying is we have to be more COMPETETIVE. And when I say that you ask for my credentials like I'm trying to attack you, instead of uplifting you and me, us. I have certain skills, you have certain skills, and we need to advance those and discover new ones. I love my people and I will not apologize for my delivery. I'm not a passive guy. I'm passionate and inquisitive.

      Southern Girl, All these different academic degrees and different medals and different honors and we're still talking about racism.

      I value education and I admire those with degrees. But the weight of it all isn't what or where you learned, I think it's about what you do with what you learn, no matter where or how you gathered your knowledge. Try not to judge me and my idea of education. I'm challenging what Ive learned by asking questions like the ones I asked here in this post. You might have a degree Southern Girl...but unarmed black men And boys are still being shot cold-blooded by trained, relentless Authority Figures....
