Detroit Music Festival is Charging White People a “White Fee”, Doubling price for all white attendees.
A Detroit music festival is facing backlash for racially segregated ticket prices, resulting in the resignation of at least one African-American artist slated to perform. Although festival organizers have justified the race-based prices by asserting that black Detroit residents generally have less opportunity to afford entertainment than white people who may wish to attend the event, charging people of colour less than white people to attend the event is not only racist to white people, but incredibly insulting to those receiving the discount.

AfroFuture Fest’s Eventbrite page clearly explains the intent behind the pricing discrepancy, proclaiming a proclivity toward equity rather than equality.

“Equality means treating everyone the same. Equity is insuring [sic] everyone has what they need to be successful,” the site explains, adding that the racially segregated ticket structure was “built to insure [sic] that the most marginalized communities (people of color) are provided with an equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community (Black Detroit).”

Notably, ticket prices range from $10 to $40 USD, creating an insulting discount of a mere $10-20 for attendees who happen to not be white.

Event organizers insist that “affording joy and pleasure is unfortunately still a privilege in our society for POC

Maybe some white trolls could go there and troll the idiots, for example claiming that they are african-americans and they could call racists the festival clerks if they say that they are "whiteys"...

That is obviously illegal! Racial discrimination works both ways. You can't have a law that applies differently to different people, regardless of race.

Imagine what would happen if this was an extra charge for blacks. There would be riots in the streets, and people (white people) would be in jail!

A spokeswoman for Eventbrite, a popular ticketing website hosting the festival, said the event will be removed if the terms aren’t changed.

“Our mission is to bring the world together through live experiences. We strive to provide a platform that enables people to gather for their chosen purpose, and that reflects diverse viewpoints, so long as they don’t violate our Terms,” the spokeswoman told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an emailed statement.

“We do not permit events that require attendees to pay different prices based on their protected characteristics such as race or ethnicity. In this case, we have notified the creator of the event about this violation and requested that they alter their event accordingly,” the spokeswoman added. “We have offered them the opportunity to do this on their own accord; should they not wish to comply we will unpublish the event completely from our site.”

This is the hilarious part....as usual!

These "progressives" see these cultures as losers, and so they categorize ALL of them into the same group. They think ALL black people are poor or uncivilized. They don't judge them on their individuality, they judge them as all being the lowest common denominator.

It's the same as when "progressives" see a monkey/ape/gorilla and get all worked up because no one else sees black people. So they call everyone else racist for not seeing an ape as being the same thing as a black HUMAN.

If they're so concerned for POC having access to entertainment...why not charge everyone the same price $10-20?

Upcharging whites is forcing them to pick up the slack for the non-white ticket prices.

So once again....whites are forced into being financially responsible for everyone else.

Who are the REAL debt slaves?
