Black Lives Matter Toronto refuses to sell t-shirt to man because he is white

StaffRebel Columnist

Black Lives Matter has admitted to refusing to sell a t-shirt to a white man because of the colour of his skin.

A musician going by Sima on Twitter, tweeted to the group saying “Tried to buy a shirt & make a donation. I was refused service at the @BLM_TO booth at @PrideToronto because I'm white.” He also tagged the state broadcaster in the post, hoping for media attention from the CBC.

The official Black Lives Matter Toronto account responded with, “As our volunteer told you, our movement shirts are for Black-identified folks...”

Since then Sima has tweeted a few more times about the incident saying, “So you are an anti-black racism resistance movement who only wants the support of black people? Why? Wasn't segregation the initial problem?” and “What baffles me is, they took the time to tell me I'm not the right race, colour or minority to purchase the shirt or donate. #BLM_TO Why?”

He even hinted at a possible human rights complaint, “Denying me service due to my race when I'm showing my support to the Toronto #blacklivesmatter movement is ironic & killing my human rights.”

Seeing as we sadly live in a society where Christian bakers can't choose not to bake cakes for gay weddings, a human rights complaint would be interesting to say the least.

Black Lives Matter Toronto has been in hot water before. Earlier this year we reported on how its co-founder asked 'Allah for strength not to kill white people'.

That’s actual racism right there. Can we send J-Rock and see if he can get s shirt? He’s a black identifying person.

Lefties- they don’t learn from their mistakes, they don’t learn from the mistakes of other and they refuse to exercise discernment. Case in point: The funny part is that she/he/it doesn’t get it. Even after being called trash. What was she/he/it expecting? She/he/it seems shocked that a non-white can be racist. That wasn’t what she/he/it was taught in school. Truly a poster child for the idiotic left.

Sima is actually a woman.

Lloyd Nolan the white SJW idiots think having a brown nose will be enough to assuage BLM when the time comes.
This is pretty evidently racism, but yet the HRC will not give a damn and neither will the SJW hypocrites.

It’s time to call a spade a spade…
BLM are all a bunch of racist thugs.
Turns out they aren’t too bright either.
Only one way to deal with these bozos – contempt and ridicule.

Who are the real racist here!!!! We didn’t have this problem in Canada until the BLM showed up talking crap. Go back to the states – you are not welcome here. I do understand why at this point in time you have shown up though. All the other minority groups have been whining about their sorry lot in life so why not jump on the band wagon. We have a non leader that gives everything and anything to make himself look & feel good and be a legend in his own mind. Every life matters, even white ones.

It’s time the police and media start investigating the Black Lives Matter group and see who they are involved with. I’m wondering if they have any affiliation with the Nation Of Islam who are a black supremacist group. All lives matter not just black.

Remember folks, these zombies are the spearhead of the Alinskyite race war agitators – their actions are meant to elicit a racist reaction to justify their racism.

I believe the best way to react to them is call them down like any other neanderthal racist cult pond scum – racist idiots on a fast one way trip to infamy.

Acuuna – love your response, very apropos. ;-)

Funny how these self-indulgent groups screaming incessantly that their rights are being infringed upon in the name of racism seem to be the most racist of all. As we can well see just by observation these groups eventually begin to fight against each other. Their demands move from reasonable equality to overbearing, manipulative bullying to gain power. Their vision becomes skewed and their cause becomes moot. I suspect this is only a minuscule portion of what is yet to unfold in this raving lunatic world.

If you are black and denied a purchase based upon your skin colour, the screams of racism and bigotry would be deafening. Yet when a white person is denied service based upon his colour, well, its black power and such. Hypocrites!

The shooting in Dallas: though the shooter clearly stated that his intention was to “kill white people” and “white police”, not once (as of 12:30 PM Friday) have I heard anyone in the main stream media, politicians, or in interviews the statement that this was a racially based hate crime.

Last night Obama said that he will reserve comment until the facts are in. Since when has he not shot off his mouth before the facts were in when it was a suspected crime against blacks?

Equal and equality means reacting the same way regardless of the colour of your skin.

Well, we already knew that BLM activists were racists.

that’s okay. I won’t sell confederate flags to black people.
the balance in the universe is restored.

BLM, fueled by Obama’s blatant race-baiting and law/order/police-baiting over the last several years, has certainly taken us back to the early 60s and spread beyond the US borders. Apologies to the enlightened MLK whose message has been completely forgotten by all except conservatives.

BLM: Bacon Lettuce and Mayo. It is a movement if the mayo is a little rancid.

Really not a lot of intelligent people in that cult. It is ironic, they fought hard in the 50’s & 60’s to have segregation removed and now the idiots want it back. Idiots!

Ok , all you white liberal s j w types out there, there’s a time coming soon that blacks that belong to b l m are going to on purpose hunt and kill you , the only criteria will be the color of your skin

The Black Lives Matter movement is a mob of super racist savages. It deserves the scorn of all civilized, intelligent and moral men and women.
