In the post-racial age of Barack Obama, it seems some who bemoan acts of racism are quick to repeat those very acts.
Black Lives Matter activists protesting outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on Tuesday demanded that members of the media be segregated by race.
“White media get to the back! Black media come to the front!” an activist barked into a microphone.

The woman confronted an apparently white journalist who failed to obey the command.
“Excuse me, sir!” she yelled. “Somebody needs to tell this person to get to the back. Go! Somebody needs to tell these folks to get to the back!”
She then threatened to exclude any who failed to comply from covering “the f**king march.”
“We are not afraid to put people out!” the woman shouted. “White people to the back! Black people to the front!”
Having white people go to the rear is a repeat of what was seen during the failed 2011 Occupy Wall Street movement, which suggests the same brain-trust could be behind both movements.
