Mayor of Paris calls for annual festival ‘prohibited to white people’ to be banned


Demanding inclusion and diversity for everything is a double-edged sword a group of black feminists in Paris has learned.

The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo called for a black feminist festival to be canceled on Sunday because it excludes white people, the Daily Mail reported.

The Nyansapo Festival, which was set to run from July 28 to 30 describes itself as “an event rooted in black feminism, activism, and on (a) European scale.” The festival sets aside 80 percent of the event as a “non-mixed” area “for black women,” according to its website.

Another area of the festival is set aside for black people of any gender, still excluding white people.

Hidalgo was outraged by the blatant racism of the event and demanded that it be banned.

She threatened possible criminal prosecution of the event organizers.

“I am asking for this festival to be banned,” she said.

She added that she may seek “to prosecute the organizers for discrimination,” according to a translation from the Mail.

SOS Racisme, a French anti-racism group, derided the event as “a mistake, even an abomination, because it wallows in ethnic separation, whereas anti-racism is a movement which seeks to go beyond race.”

The International League against Racism and Antisemitism said it believed American civil rights hero “Rosa Parks would be turning in her grave,” the Mail reported.

The event organizers, Mwasi, and the venue where the event was to take place, La Generale claimed on Sunday that they were the victims of a “disinformation campaign and of ‘fake news’ orchestrated by the foulest far right,” in a statement on the venue’s website.
