Because Black people who love thugs and hate cops are such a critical element of the gay community, organizers of the San Francisco Gay Pride (Seriously, do we still need these hopelessly dated anachronisms?) invited the cop-hating, thug-loving group #BlackLivesMatter to not only participate in their pride parade but to serve as Grand Marshals.
In light of recent events, the organizers went on to add more security to the event in case another Muslim Democrat Terrorist decided to use a large gathering of gay people for target practice. (Killing gays being totes OK in Mohammedanism.) This made the #BlackLivesMatter activists
angry… angrier… and so they quit because they claim … I am not making this up… that the police were going to shoot them or something.
The groups said in a statement that law enforcement creates unsafe conditions in queer communities of color. In particular, they cited what they described as the San Francisco Police Department’s “recent track record of racist scandal and killings of people of color.”
“As queer people of color, we are disproportionately targeted by both vigilante and police violence. We know first hand that increasing the police presence at Pride does not increase safety for all people.”
The withdrawal, announced at a press conference Friday, was joined by St. James Infirmary, a group that provides medical and social services to sex workers, and TGI Justice Project, an advocacy group for transsexual, intersex and gender nonconformist people in jails and prisons.
The organizers of the Gay Pride Fest were really looking forward to experiencing a large black presence. It must have been painful when those black guys pulled out.
