“Hey, little boy, you can’t go where the others go,
‘Cause you don’t look like they do.
“I said, ‘Hey, old man, how can you stand to think that way?
Did you really think about it before you made the rules?'”
Those words are from the Bruce Hornsby & the Range song, “That’s Just The Way It Is”. Of course, they were written from the Leftist point of view, attempting to drive home the narrative that people on the Right felt that way about Blacks and Hispanics.
As we have come to gradually accept, it doesn’t matter what the truth is…as long as the narrative the Left puts forward is adhered to, all will be good in Lefty-land.
The truth of the matter is that these same words apply to today’s headlines even more so than they did in the ’80s.
The Daily Wire:
Sad news for white leftists in Philadelphia who want to support the Black Lives Matter movement by attending the group’s meetings in person. According to BLM Philly, white people are banned from future gatherings and are not allowed to be official members of the organization because it is considered a “black only space.”
@BLMPhilly Lol this is pure comedy. The moment white people hold a whites only meeting you’ll be the first to cry racism

This movement, by remaining a “Black Only” movement, will begin to veer into the realm of a secret society, which is counter-intuitive to its mission of increasing visibility for its cause. By excluding other races, you’re basically shutting down communications with the rest of society, in essence “segregating” yourself from the very people who you say need more awareness and empathy.
It is a conundrum that will continue to baffle reason and good sense. If Black Lives Matter truly wants segregation, they should remain securely in the Democrat Party. After all, they were the true party of segregation.
