The conservative Breitbart website has called out the Black Lives Matter Philly group for holding meetings where only black people are invited to attend.


In an article Monday, Breitbart wrote that BLM Philly “has banned white people” from its upcoming April 15 meeting.

Black Lives Matter Philly, one of two BLM groups in Philadelphia, has regularly advertised its meetings on Twitter and Facebook and has called its meetings “a black only space.” Its next meeting is to be held at Mastery Charter Schools’ Shoemaker Campus in West Philadelphia.


While the “black only space” notice is not new, the discovery of it by conservative websites, including Breitbart, has caused an online controversy on both sides.

A Twitter user pointed out to BLM Philly a photo of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marching for civil rights with white people.

In response, BLM Philly tweeted: “He made that choice and we have made ours. White people can support us but they cannot attend our meetings.”





Messages sent by email and via Facebook to BLM Philly seeking comment were not immediately answered Tuesday.

According to its Twitter account, BLM Philly is “the official Black Lives Matter chapter in Philly.” 

Another BLM group in Philadelphia is Black Lives Matter Pennsylvania, which counts outspoken activist Asa Khalif among its members. He is not associated with BLM Philly.
