Black Students at Cornell Protest a Pro-Black Protest Led by White Students

By MRCTV, Special for  USDR

An organized protest at Cornell University supporting racial equality has been canceled after a black student group complained about the “lack of people of color in the planning and attendance” of the event, which appears to have been organized by a white student.
The group also stated that “although” the members appreciate “the solidarity and interest of our allies,” the organization would like to address prejudice “in [their] own way.” They then suggested that individuals who would like to show support for black causes should ask in advance for the organization’s approval.

Black Students United at Cornell University posted, “We, Black Students United, would like to point out the lack of people of color in the planning and attendance of this protest.” The organization continued, “While we appreciate the solidarity and interest of our allies across campus, we would like to be able to address prejudice on this campus and campuses like it in our own way.”
“In the future, please ask how you can support us before organizing on your own. With that in mind, we would appreciate the cancellation of this event.”
