Race was front and center on Wednesday night during a meeting coordinated to garner support for just one black candidate in Savannah’s mayoral election.

With signs stating “Black press only” on the doors of the church where the meeting was held, white reporters were barred from entry, while black reporters for at least two television stations were permitted inside.

The event was coordinated by the Rev. Clarence Teddy Williams, owner of the consulting firm, The Trigon Group, who declined to discuss the entry policy.

Former Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson declined to comment before going inside, as did Chatham County Commissioner Chester Ellis.
“This is not my idea,” Ellis said.

Savannah Alderman Estella Shabazz [NOI!], who also attended, said that she had once owned a newspaper and she was a member of the black press, but she declined to comment - when repeatedly pressed - on the policy barring white reporters from going inside.

While notes were allowed, photos, video and audio recordings were prohibited during the event, according to Stephen Moody, an African-American reporter with WJCL who was allowed entry. Another reporter from WSAV who attended the meeting was told she could stay because she was black, Moody said.

Shirley James, the African-American publisher of the black-owned Savannah Tribune, was also seen going into the meeting.

Savannah Alderman Van Johnson, who is one of three African-Americans who have stated their intention to run for mayor, said afterwards that during the meeting he had talked about his vision for an inclusive and progressive Savannah. With regards to the discriminatory policy at the door, Johnson said that he believed people have the right to assemble and determine the rules of their assembly.

[N.S.: Racist liar! He believes that black people have “the right,” not whites.]

“It’s not my meeting,” Johnson said. “I was asked to come and give a statement, so I came and I gave a statement. What I said in there, I’ll say out here.”

Louis Wilson, who said he is going to run for mayor again after an unsuccessful run in 2015, also spoke during the meeting about his priorities. Afterwards, Wilson also declined to discuss the press restriction.

“I didn’t plan the meeting so I can’t comment on that part,” he said. “I came to say what I had to say.”

Former state senator and representative Regina Thomas, who has announced her own campaign, did not attend the meeting. In an interview earlier this week, Thomas said she believes she can win, even if there is another black candidate.

“I’m encouraged every day by people of all persuasions,” Thomas said.
Meeting attendees were given a handout reporting the ethnic composition of Savannah’s population, as well as a vote breakdown for the 2015 election - when incumbent Jackson was defeated in a run-off by current Mayor Eddie DeLoach.

Also distributed was an editorial in the black-owned Savannah Herald titled “United We Win, Divided We Lose” that was written by former Mayor Otis Johnson. In the piece, Johnson called on the black population to organize itself to increase its influence over what happens in the community, starting with the mayor and council.

“If we come together and decide what we want and who we believe will work best for us to get it, then we have a chance to advance,” he said.

[N.S.: Whites from outside Savannah need to engage in black-style election fraud and register to vote there, and stuff the ballot box for the white guy!]

This is the future showing itself in small snippets.Whites fired or arrested for "indignities" against blacks.Those indignities include supposed racist talk,actions,policy.Smollett is an example/preview of how blacks will act when they aquire even more power.Laws will not apply to blackie,whitey however will be punished for anything blacks deem a venial sin.
Then we see an exclusion of white press here.Sunday,Smollett will be up for an NAACP IMAGE Award.How either of these two instances are allowed in a country that doesn't allow all whites in a commercial or TV show,is incredulous.Blacks can have their own award show though.
There's a syndicated show called "Sister Circle",all blacks on a talk show--no whites allowed (as guests,I'm not sure).Advertised as all black.How that is permitted,while whites can't even talk together on FOX anymore,shows where this nation is headed--to Africa----GR Anonymous

White folks by the bus load need to show up at the church on Sunday and pack the place so no one else can get it. Surely the reverend would not prohibit any Christian of any race from entry into a house of GOD!

Whites aren't organized like the "minorities" are.When they DO organize,whites are called racist.Can't win the way things are going at this point.
