Our future is looking grim. The leaders of tomorrow aren’t fostering optimism. An Orlando vigil at Mizzou was interrupted to complain about white people.
A multicultural “official” decided the Orlando vigil was the perfect time to scold white people who preach unity. It then turned into a blame session against Mizzou’s LGBTQ community for not being intersectional enough.
Latino activists, including a Mizzou official, scolded the mostly white gathering for ignoring racial issues. That led one attendee to fume on Facebook that the organizers had invented a “race issue” out of a “homophobic attack” by gunman Omar Mateen.
It was Latin night during the Orlando attack and most of the victims were young Latino men.
At the event outside the Boone County Courthouse in Columbia, Mizzou graduate and activist Tiffany Melecio chastised the crowd for putting the interests of the LGBTQ community above those of “people of color.”
“I wish this many people came out to our racial demonstrations and our Black Lives Matter movement,” Melecio told the crowd, which The Columbia Missourian estimated at more than 800.
These people are unbelievably looney and there’s so many of them.
