Paris mayor demands black feminist festival that ‘prohibits’ white people be banned

Seems obvious to me that segregation is segregation and white collective exclusion is collective guilt.

“The Paris mayor, Anne Hidalgo, has called for a black feminist festival in the French capital to be banned, saying it was “prohibited to white people”.

The first edition of the Nyansapo Festival, due to run from 28-30 July at a cultural centre in Paris, bills itself as “an event rooted in black feminism, activism, and on (a) European scale”.

Four-fifths of the festival area will be set aside as a “non-mixed” space for black women, according to its website. Another space will be a “non-mixed” area for black people regardless of gender. Another space would be “open to all”.

The English version of the site does not use the word “non-mixed”, but “reserved”.

Hidalgo said on Twitter that she firmly condemned the organisation “of this event, ‘prohibited to white people’”.”
