Organizers of the Black DNC Resistance March in Philadelphia were seen Wednesday on video segregating their protest by ordering white people to the back of the line.
“I need all white people to move to the back – make space because this is a Black Resistance March,” one of the leaders yelled from the bed of a pickup truck. “I need all white people to move to the back and make room for the black and brown brothers and sisters.”
Local media reports the march was organized by a coalition of neighborhood groups including Black Lives Matter Philadelphia.
A Fox News colleague who was reporting on the march said as much as half of the crowd was white.
“What if white people were in Ferguson,” one older white activist could be heard asking.

The unidentified woman with the megaphone repeatedly told all Caucasian protesters to move.
“You will appropriately take your place in the back of this march because it will be truly led by the black and brown community and that’s it,” she roared.
The edict even applied to journalists covering the demonstration.
“Make room for black media,” she yelled. “White media get to the back. Black media come to the front.”
We apparently live in a nation where one’s place in a protest march is determined by the color of their skin and not the content of their character.
Later that evening, other demonstrators caused mayhem outside the DNC convention hall. Protestors dragged the Israeli flag through the streets – some of the flags were burned.
They even desecrated the Star-Spangled Banner.
Anti-American protesters threw Old Glory on the ground. They stomped on the flag and then set it ablaze.
I can’t even begin to imagine the anti-American hatred they harbor in their hearts. I can’t begin to comprehend their contempt for those who fought and died for the stars and stripes.
How incredibly sad it was to witness such hatred and racism on full display in the City of Brotherly Love.
“White people to the back — Black people to the front.”
I wonder what Rosa Parks would’ve done?
