A Missouri woman claims that she was kicked out of the St. Louis African Arts Festival because she is white. KMOV News 4 spoke to Susan Stone, who said that when she was dancing, as many there were doing, a festival worker targeted her because of her race. Stone recounted, “He takes me and says, ‘You can't be doing this here. This is an African American event. You can't be at this event. You're not black.’”

Just watch her dance video on youtube and you will see this has nothing to do with her being white. It has all to do with her being a nut.

If you read the story they didn't ask her to leave, they asked her to sit down as she was blocking people's view of the show, and she repeatedly refused: "When the staffer tries to tell Stone that she doesn’t have to leave, she just has to sit down so others can enjoy the performers, she refuses saying, “I don’t sit down. I dance.”

Easy to play the race card, this lady is just nuts.

It's weird to think that everything people "claim" is now news isn't it?

It looks to me like a clock is missing its cuckoo.

Crazy chick came with props for her routine! She was disruptive, but not sure if I would have kicked her out. Maybe asking her to move to the side would have been more appropriate.

In her own video, it shows several White people walking by her little performance. Doesn't help her accusations that White people were not welcome.

This is a man named David Stone. His antics are well known to those in the St. Louis area. He has been caught committing crimes such as slashing tires and stealing a laptop. He has shown up to other neighborhood events as a nuisance and distraction including a concert intended to honor veterans.

So before any racists come out of the woodwork demanding "equal rights for whites", you might want to at least wait to find another champion. This guy is just trouble.

They didn't kick her out until she refused multiple requests to sit down and stop blocking other people's views. She outright said "no, I'm not sitting". Dancing is fine, but if it's a sitting concert and you want to dance, go in the back.
