‘Multicultural’ official scolds whites who preach unity
A vigil Monday planned by several University of Missouri student organizations was supposed to honor victims of Sunday morning’s deadly shooting rampage in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla.
It turned into a blame session against Mizzou’s LGBTQ community for not being intersectional enough.
Latino activists, including a Mizzou official, scolded the mostly white gathering for ignoring racial issues. That led one attendee to fume on Facebook that the organizers had invented a “race issue” out of a “homophobic attack” by gunman Omar Mateen.
The attack on the Pulse nightclub took place on Latin night, with most victims Latinos in their 20s and 30s.
