A Black Lives Matter chapter in Philadelphia has banned white people from attending an event, claiming it’s a “black only space.”
Some people supporting the movement but who happen to not be black have requested an explanation from the group. “Is it just your meetings that are black only spaces? or are all activities this way? I want to support but don’t want to overstep,” tweeted Esther Greenwood.
“Our meetings are black centered,” replied official Black Lives Matter Philly account.
