In what is probably an exercise undertaken with the best of intentions, a Georgia group seems to be buying into the worst stereotypes that the left has successfully created about white people during and after the Obama horror.
Atlanta-based Urban Mediamakers is hosting “Come Meet a Black Person” social networking event this Thursday in Lawrenceville. This is no joke either despite the surreal nature of such a gathering and the mixed messages that are being sent.
Welcome to 2017 America, a country where liberals and cynical Democrats have set race relations back decades to the point where someone feels that an event like this is even necessary.

Via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Gwinnett professionals invite white people to ‘come meet a black person’”:
To celebrate its 16th anniversary, a Gwinnett professional organization is hosting a unique event.
On Thursday, guests are invited to Urban Mediamakers’ (UMM) “Come Meet a Black Person” networking event at Cornerstone in Lawrenceville.
Cheryle Moses, a digital content creator and the founder and producer of UMM — a consortium of content creators in a variety of media — said the event was inspired by a 2014 study from Robert Jones of the Public Religion Research Institute, which found that 75 percent of whites do not have black friends or friends of any race other than white, for that matter.
According to PRRI, if a white person has 100 friends, 91 are white, one each is black, Latino, Asian, mixed race or other and three are of unknown race. Blacks on the other hand would have 83 black friends, eight white friends, two Latino friends, no Asian friends, three mixed race friends, one friend classified as other and four friends of unknown race.
“It blew me away because as a black person you kind of know most white people don’t have black friend, but to actually see a number, that quantifies it,” said Moses, 58. “I know everything about white people, but a lot of white people don’t know much about our culture or our community. Not real stuff anyway,” she said.
So far, reaction to the event has been supportive, she said, with most people understanding the attempt to bring people together in a lighthearted manner.
“I am looking forward to it because I believe it will help break the ice for a lot of folks who want to be friends with people who are non-white, but don’t know how to go about it,” she said.
Moses said the lack of opportunity and lack of desire to reach across racial lines for friendships goes in all directions. “There are a lot of woke white folks and black folks that don’t know how to reach out to each other,” she said.
Considering that the New York Times just published an insanely racist editorial by a black contributor in which the writer admitted that he was teaching his children to not trust white people it’s hard to be overly critical of this particular group other than they have totally bought into the “Trump is dividing us by skin color” lie pushed by con artists like the closet communist Bernie Sanders.

Thanks to Obama and his fellow travelers, many blacks, unfortunately, believe that we live in the Jim Crow era and that slavery is still an unresolved issue. A scrubeenie loser of a former NFL quarterback just was named GQ’s “Citizen of the Year” for being an unemployed cop-hater and the 2018 and 2020 elections are being set up as a referendum on a non-existent “white supremacy” that has replaced legitimate issues.
Obama may be gone but Obamastan isn’t going to go away quite so easily.
