‘Black press only!’ White reporters banned from Savannah mayoral race meeting

A mayoral candidate meeting in Savannah, Georgia, drew heavy backlash after the organizers banned white reporters from the event.

The meeting was held at a church in Savannah and was organized by the Reverend Clarence Teddy Williams (pictured above). Signs on the doors to the event read: “Black Press Only!”

Imagine the rabid outrage from the media and the black community if a white church had barred black reporters from a political meeting.

White Reporters: Stay Out

White reporters were denied entry to the event, while black reporters were allowed inside, the Savannah Morning News reported.

When asked about his shocking racial segregation policy, the Reverend Clarence Williams declined to comment.

Mayoral Candidates Distance Themselves from Racist Ban

The black mayoral candidates who attended the meeting distanced themselves from the ban, saying they had nothing to do with it.

Savannah council member Van Johnson also distanced himself from the ban, but refused to condemn the anti-white racial segregation.

“It’s not my meeting,” Johnson told local news station WTOC. “I’ve been attending meetings for 16 years. Sometimes press is there, sometimes press is not there. In this case, I didn’t coordinate the meeting.”

Black Activists Want to Unseat Savannah’s White Mayor

The community meeting was promoted on the Facebook page of the Bolton Street Baptist Church.

Its purpose was to unite Savannah’s black community behind a black mayoral candidate, presumably to ensure that the city will elect a black mayor in the November election.

Did Georgia Church Violate IRS Guidelines?

The current mayor of Savannah, Georgia, is Eddie DeLoach, a white Republican. Mayor DeLoach is seeking re-election this fall. In 2015, he became Savannah’s first white mayor in 20 years.

More than 55% of Savannah’s population is black, while just 38% is white.

The black community has a right to hold an event to throw its support behind a candidate of its choosing. However, the event was held in a church — a tax-exempt organization.

IRS rules state that in order to keep their tax-exempt status, churches are not allowed to engage in any political campaign activity or to endorse or oppose political candidates.

This is because “the government has a compelling interest in maintaining the integrity of the tax system and in not subsidizing partisan political activity.”

By allowing the Bolton Street Baptist Church to host an event that barred white reporters — and whose goal is to defeat the city’s white mayor — one could argue that the church may have violated IRS rules.

Black Conservatives: White Privilege Is a Myth Now

All this supports the contention made by black conservatives — which is that White Privilege is a myth in today’s radical left-wing culture.

Black conservatives point to actor Jussie Smollett being cleared of all charges for decimating “the myth of White Privilege” and for glorifying victimhood chic.

Conservative commentator Candace Owens summed it up when she tweeted:

“Imagine if a white male actor faked a hate crime against himself by pretending black men attacked him in the middle of the night, then was subsequently acquitted of all charges.

“Jussie Smollett is an utter perversion of justice who just DESTROYED the myth of white privilege.”

Those white Republicans are the worst.
