White reporters barred from press event in Savannah mayoral race

The new bigotry: White reporters were barred from entering or reporting on a press event involving black challengers to the present white Savannah mayor.

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.

The black reporters who did attend appeared to be working to coordinate their activities with the candidates in order to help pick a candidate who could win, something that it is totally inappropriate for reporters to do.

The article conveniently does not mention the party to which the candidates all belonged, but since these are all challenging the present Republican mayor, it seems reasonable to assume they were all Democrats. This conclusion is also reasonable considering the bigoted nature of that party these days.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Absolutely incredible!

    Affirmative action has its consequences?

    Jesse Lee Peterson:

    An interesting black perspective, sounds like it fits here in connection to this subject, no black reporter should attend any event where whites or any other race reporter was banned from. So you must ask why are they complicit?

  • Cotour

    Is it too paranoid that this story seems aligned with the dropping of the Jussie Smollet charges?

    Focused race based outrages pushed into the media designed to outrage the two races against one another, ala Obama and other community organizing tactics?

    Cotour: I expect your are correct!

    More fuel for the racial fire?

    Keep the races as best as you can divided and at odds. Even Mayor Rham Emanuel had to back track on his outrage at the Jussie Smollett fake gay / racist / MAGA attack. Emanuel had to make a statement that basically blamed trump for Smolletts actions.

    Trump made him do it. Everything in the Liberal / Leftist world is built on a lie and lying. Good luck with that, you are all enraging the true and rational people of America. And for the most part it eclipses party affiliation and the subconscious push button political rhetoric.

    The law does not apply to D’s especially black D’s. 8 yrs of 44 lurking around the Whitehouse with his pal Larry Sinclair illustrated that. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover , and sometimes ya gotta call a spade a shovel.
