Savannah Mayoral Race Allows Only Black Journalists

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We have been reading this quote all wrong. We have always been led to believe that MLK, Jr. meant his “four little children” to stand for all the little children of every color. Over the last few years, we have had many examples of black segregationists or separatists. The Savannah Mayoral race event permitting “black press only” is just the latest example.

On Wednesday, March 27, 2019, an event for the mayoral race was held at Bolton Street Baptist Church which is located, without irony, on Martin Luther King Jr Blvd in Savannah. Four signs, two each, reading “No Audio or Video Recording!” and “No Media (t.v., radio, etc.) Black Press Only!” The event was organized by Reverend Clarence Teddy Williams. The following is a description of Clarence Teddy Williams by Clarence Teddy Williams in Savannah Now from 2015:

The Trigon Group is managed by The Rev. Dr. Clarence “Teddy” Williams. Pastor Williams is the Senior Pastor of the Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church not the First Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church. He is also the Moderator of The Berean Missionary Baptist Association, an alliance of 40 churches representing 20,000 members. He is correct in stating that Pastor Moderator Williams is a charismatic and politically active member of the clergy.

This charismatic and politically active clergyman must have read a different Bible and practice a different faith than I was raised in. “We all are covered by the same Christ, we are all one in Christ.”, Galatians 3:26-28. The Houston Chronicle reported that Reverend Williams declined to discuss the entry policy. Online Athens filed this report:

With signs stating “Black press only” on the doors of the church where the meeting was held, white reporters were barred from entry, while black reporters for at least two television stations were permitted inside.

So the television reporters rule was flexible, but the black press only was not flexible. I have to ask why it’s always only black and white? What if an Asian reporter had tried to get in? Would he/she been turned away also. Of course, none of the candidates would talk about this racist policy:

“It’s not my meeting,” Johnson said. “I was asked to come and give a statement, so I came and I gave a statement. What I said in there, I’ll say out here.”

Louis Wilson, who said he is going to run for mayor again after an unsuccessful run in 2015, also spoke during the meeting about his priorities. Afterwards, Wilson also declined to discuss the press restriction.

“I didn’t plan the meeting so I can’t comment on that part,” he said. “I came to say what I had to say.”

The Gay Republican filed this video:

I get so confused. As the racial lines get less clear, the racial divisions seem to be going up exponentially. By that I mean, so many of my friends have interracial marriages and children of mixed race. And yet, the racial hatred seems to be climbing, ala Jussie Smollett and the outright hatred he exhibits. I cannot forget to mention that other unapologetic racist Representative Ilhan Omar. Another important quote for us to remember from Abraham Lincoln:

“A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

Savannah, Georgia used to be a gentle, graceful place. Now, it is a hotbed of hatred and racism. They can proclaim inclusion but they only include those of the same skin color. So sad, so regressive and so un-Christian.

    Because the media wants you to believe that it is. They stoke any and everything that will contribute to that.

    As to the “blacks only”…. I’m not sure I have a problem with it (apart from the rank hypocrisy). I don’t mind if you think certain groups are underdogs and you give them some special treatment – as long as that’s a personal decision. Sure, give the black reporters some extra time to ask and have answered questions. Male, female, Jewish, etc. *shrug*
    However, if you do that by keeping other reporters out, understand you run the risk of people thinking you’re pulling an Arafat. Yassir Arafat was notorious for saying one thing to a Western audience, then immediately saying something contradictory in Arabic. (i.e., “Yes, we Palestinians want peace.” [in Arabic] “You need to go out tomorrow and kill all those dirty Jews! Then we’ll have peace!”) At least if you alienate certain voters with your open speech, it will be honest, rather than them assuming you’re a dirty, lying scoundrel who says different things to different groups of people.

  • Texanorever says:

    The activist blacks don’t want equality. they want revenge. After that they just want everything for nothing. They will never stop hating anybody with lighter skin because they’re racists at heart.

    That’s called interfering with an election. Illegal as hell.

      • Scott says:

        Not sure Lionel is correct, but they should damn sure have their tax exempt status yanked for actively engaging in politics…

        • GWB says:

          Generally speaking, hosting a candidate has not been considered “actively engaging in partisan politics”, as long as you don’t deny the other candidates the same forum. (Same with Kiwanis, Rotary, etc.)

          Is there racism inherent in this? Maybe. (Well, I’m almost certain the actual reason for it is racialism, but there are other possibilities.) But I would need more information to say it was illegally partisan for the church, And a lot different information to see it as “interference” in an election.

    When the bullet meets the bone, they will learn to regret their propaganda. My 16 year old granddaughter can put 3 223 in their foreheads at 200 yards.

    “white privilege” is CHILD ABUSE ….. it is is a deliberate RACIST attack on the self image of White children.
    “white privilege” is pure Racist Bullying …… tearing down others rather than lifting yourself up.

    It was NEVER about “equality”. IT has always been about REVERSING the roles ….

    Denigrate & degrade the White Male …. nearly all Propaganda ….. I mean MSM ADVERTISING features Black male, White female, White male always depicted as stupid or subservient…. now who designs/approves media? Start boycotting/sabotaging those that denigrate you, but mostly awaken others to the blatant pattern.
    Who’s behind the race mixing agenda in advertising?
    The War Against Whites in Advertising The mass-marketing of interracial relationships, particularly white women with black men, has become so ubiquitous and so militant, even the least observant members of our culture have begun to notice. http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=172268
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AaVk46xP5FQ (red ice, 13min) Why Interracial Relationships Are Pushed On White Women. Tired of the TV commercials now proliferating – white gal, black guy? Pure idiocy (and evil). We know who is behind this…it’s strange to imagine the IQ of a group that, for the sake of control, wants to dumb down the entire world. The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled good will, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation. The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it. And, superiority excites envy. Destroying white civilization is the inmost desire of the league of designated victims we call minorities.
    Whites are just 8% of the world’s total population,and now every country with a white majority is being flooded with black,brown,and islam. Eradication and subjugation is the goal.Diversity is death to white people and our culture.If you even question this genocide with facts and reality, you are called,racist, Nazi,or white supremacist. Do not let these words shut down the truth.
    Denigrate & degrade the White Male …. all Propaganda ….. I mean all media features Black male, White female, White male always depicted as stupid or subservient…. now who designs/approves media? Start sabotaging those that denigrate you, boycott them, awaken others to the blatant pattern.
    It was NEVER about “equality”. IT has always been about REVERSING the roles ….

    Reading the original article, it seems this is an attempt to rally the “black vote” behind just one black candidate. Certain influential blacks (at least in their political spheres of influence) wanted to hear from the black candidates so they could pick one to endorse. Hence the black reporters bit – they want to sway a certain bloc of voters with the media that appeals to them.

    Not sure if the excuse for excluding others is “they might spoil our scoops” or “they might spoil our propaganda by reporting facts we don’t want known”. Either way makes sense, at least.

    The real problem comes in with the whole idea of voting by race. It perpetuates the racial divide. Everyone votes by interest groups to which they belong – gun owners, home owners, business owners, business employees, Catholics, Jews, Protestants, pagans, etc. But the racial bloc voting is often racialist, in voting not just for policies, but for someone of a specific race. As MLK pointed out, we really have to get over the skin color thing.

    Having said all that, some comments here are really overwrought, given the topic. Sheesh.

    Everybody knows that if the roles would’ve been reversed There would have been a damn riot and even one of the Attendees Van Johnson said himself had be the first one protesting at the front door along with every other black person in Savannah! So why is it ok for the blacks to do it and on top of it all it’s people that want to run this city. All that meeting did was show us exactly who not to vote for and put in office!! Almost all the the ones that were interviewed gave bullshit answers about why they came and they all said” I didn’t put this meeting together I was just invited and gave a speech and said what I had to say and that’s it”. They are all Racist and should not be allowed to run. PERIODk

    A small but positive step in the direction of racial segregation, the end of which in the 1950s started the decline of American culture.

  • tracy says:

    Just try to put up a sign saying “white press only”..and then say ” these are 2 white candidates and us as the white community are trying to listen and see to endorse”…If someone wants to throw a private party for a candidate in their own home and invite a few specific reporters, that’s different.
    And most obviously there are white people living in Savannah who vote…why do you not want them to hear your message ?…yes racism is coming back with a vengeance and hate is developing everywhere….i see things changing for the worse…a solution IS NOT wanted…..to keep spreading the hate is the agenda…and soon black people with this agenda are going to realize what a terrible mistake they have made to their own detriment…it didn’t have to be like this.
