We need to have a "national conversation on race" but if we did either all the black people would walk out or claim that whites aren't qualified to be part of the conversation because they are inherently "racist".

If the woman was black and she said "all the white people are leaving", no one would care. Only black lives matter.

They left because the program was over, but she skipped a speech and wanted people to come back and list.

But what does it matter if they were black, and why does that not surprise you ????

Much ado about nothing.
If it was a black woman who said that comment then would it be racist? Yes.

Okay, so what we have here is a situation where a woman negatively stereotyped a specific race in a room full of people, using an obviously untrue statement (as many of the black people in the room were not only not leaving, but were also filming the situation), which makes her statement pretty much the textbook definition of racism. Not only that, but she now knows what she said was SO racist and dumb that she compared her outburst to being possessed by Satan. I really can't see any way that someone can see this as not raci-

She negatively stereotyped them? By saying they were leaving?
