Congress Against Racism

October 12th, 2002 4:46 AM

First, Delegates at an anti-racism conference voted … to expel non-blacks from the meeting, saying it was too traumatic to discuss slavery in front of them. Then, the organizers of the conference turned to the local white community to pay off its $200,000 debt:

“The white-owned businesses in Barbados need the support of black people. They depend on us for their businesses and I’m saying this conference (was) to help the black people of Barbados out of their ignorance and poverty and if white people don’t see it fit to contribute towards that, then I will be asking black people to look very carefully at how they spend their money with white people.”

Great job promoting equality, tolerance, and overal level-headedness, guys.
