A Women’s March group is canceling its January rally in Humboldt County, Calif., over concerns that its participants would be “overwhelmingly white.”
The decision comes amid division and tension in the broader Women’s March movement, which has unified millions of women and men in protest in the past two years.
I’ve been concerned about reports of anti-Semitism in Women’s March Inc. — which is only one of several groups organizing women’s marches, although I think it was the main organizer of the big one on the past.
I’ve looked into it and it appears that the local San Diego organization is not affiliated with Women’s March Inc.
Still, I’ll probably just sit out the women’s march this year. I’m not making a huge deal out of this because anti-Semitism isn’t my only reason for sitting out the march. It’s not even the main reason. I’m just not a marcher.
