In today’s politically-correct world, one can apparently be too “white.” It turns out the organizers of an annual Women’s March in California decided not to hold a rally in Eureka on Jan. 19, as previously planned, because they say participants do not represent the “diversity” of the area.
Yes, you read that correctly. As Twitchy pointed out, “Proof-positive that some progressives can get too progressive and therefore become an affront to their own progressiveness, or something.”
According to KRCR News, organizers said in a press release, “This decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march.”

The organizers further said, “Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community. Instead of pushing forward with crucial voices absent, the organizing team will take time for more outreach. Our goal is that planning will continue and we will be successful in creating an event that will build power and community engagement through connection between women that seek to improve the lives of all in our community.”
Angie Beem, board president of Women’s March Washington, announced the group’s dissolution in a Facebook post last week, citing anti-Semitism allegations against the organization’s national co-chairs — Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour.
“Continuing to be a part of the Women’s March with the blatant bigotry they display would be breaking a promise,” Ms. Beem wrote. “We can’t betray our Jewish community by remaining a part of this organization.”
Ms. Beem told The Spokesman-Review that the state group took issue with the national leaders’ ties to the notoriously anti-Semitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan, as well as their “fame-hungry” attitude when it came to promoting their cause.
