Black Lives Matter Toronto refuses to sell t-shirt to man because he is white

A musician going by Sima on Twitter, tweeted to the group saying “Tried to buy a shirt & make a donation. I was refused service at the @BLM_TO booth at @PrideToronto because I’m white.” He also tagged the state broadcaster in the post, hoping for media attention from the CBC.

The official Black Lives Matter Toronto account responded with, “As our volunteer told you, our movement shirts are for Black-identified folks…”

    And the Toronto Star is excited this morning that the University of Toronto is taking action against all those white people teaching there. Yes, the university feels there are too many white people teaching at its campuses. This comes after students approached the administration about the lack of diversity. So white teachers will go to the bottom of the list for hiring. I hope this doesn’t effect the new islamic studies building.

      It will, it will.

    Maybe now he will realize that they hate him because of his race and sucking up doesn’t help.

    …should say “Only Black Lives Matter”…

    Lesbian woman, not a man.

    If this was a guy refusing to sell a wedding cake to a same-sex marriage the Human Rights folks would be all over it like a fat kid on a ham sandwich. Where is the Human Rights Commission when you really need them?

      … looking for the kid with the ham sandwich, it’s anti-Mohammedan.

    Perhaps booksellers should cease selling books to blacks. That would play well.

      With the schooling level in the black community I doubt many could read a book, (comic book).

    So who actually wields the power in our societies now?

    • Clausewitz

      Tyranny of the Minorities. Fucking ridiculous.

    And yet, in Oregon, a cake baker can refuse service to a lesbian couple and lose their collective shirts in the process. Funny how that works. Imagine the other scenario, a white person refusing to sell a T-shirt to a black person in Canada. Can you hear the outraged media, and politicians screaming at the top of their lungs? Can you visualize the Human Rights Commission in action?

    Too bad. I want to know what white people are stupid and self-hating enough to wear a black-power terrorist t-shirt. They need to be identified.

    • Clausewitz

      Maybe he was shirt on toilet paper?

  • I thought all money was green (or blue or purple).

    Isn’t that the colour that counts?

  • Maggat

    What a bunch of racist shits, same colour as shit as well.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Bring your own t-shirt with MLKs face on it and burn it.

    I see all that is going on with all these different “affirmative action” groups as the chickens coming home to roost. Yes, this is the offspring of white liberals’ affirmative action, hate speech laws and hate crime laws, where there is no longer the individual, only the collective. Trudeau Sr. implemented it with his charter. Now instead of a society composed of individuals, regardless of their colour or ethnicity, who are judged by their individual actions and behaviour and treated the same under the law; we have this.
