There is a new group of Brownies in California made up of only minority children and the right-wing is going insane with racism. We always expect a certain level of racism from the Tea Party citizens of America, but this is different because it was all directed at children.
So what pissed them off this time?
Anayvette Martinez and Marilyn Hollinquest of Oakland, California have decided to start a Girl Scout- like group for minority girls in their city called Radical Brownies.
The group is made up of 12 girls, between the ages of 8 to 12, and they learn about social justice, civil rights, and black history. They receive rewards like the “Black Lives Matter” badge ,“Food Justice” badge, “Radical Beauty,” “Radical Self-Love,” and “LGBT Ally” badge. Sounds pretty positive right?
Cofounder of the group Anayvette Martinez explained why she started the group:
I saw the need for a group that would empower and encourage her to form bonds of sisterhood with other girls in her community. I began to imagine what a radical young girl’s social justice troop looked like; a group that centred and affirmed her experiences as a beautiful and brilliant brown girl against so many societal pressures to conform to mainstream ideals of girlhood.

The group caught the attention of the uber conservative, very racist website Top Conservative News. The website railed against the group in an article titled,”Meet The Radical Brownies, no white girls allowed.”
The author of the article calls it a Marxist version of the Girl Scouts and makes fun of their badges, but it was the comments under the article that show just how horrible the right is:
Charles A Love: Future single moms….I guess my kids will be paying for their kids…..just as I bet I’m paying for some of the very negros in this picture.
Greg: Does that include merit badges in welfare line standing, abortion clinic head crushing, single mom food stamp collecting, being “liberated” enough to open their own doors, but not enough to say “no” to the guy they met at the bar last night, who said he’d call, and never did….?
AlfalfaDoLittle: I have a question.
Why would any self respecting parents of any little white girls want their children to join this group? I say it is an excellent idea. Reading the blurb the two women who founded this, address themselves as “Queer women of color”. Ok.
Shooga J: Eliminate? Don’t be silly. Doing so would surely cause their extinction. A fact even they understand. No, this about brainwashing. About making sure that the younger generation, and generations to follow, have been sufficiently programmed when told to hand over 60+% of their working income in taxes and fees without bitching. Blacks need white money to survive. As much as we need oxygen.
Jim: I’m all for “no whites allowed.” It’ll keep the stupid limousine liberals away, and it may ultimately lead to a “no blacks allowed” mentality (though I’m not holding my breath.) And speaking of brownies…that could be a fund raising sales item (instead of cookies)…though they might end up being laced with pot or crack.
Gregzotta: Welcome to ObamaNation! Since the election of Barack
Hussein Obama, The GREAT
DIVIDER, racial division has expanded, because the Obama Regime continues to fan the flames of racial division. Obama is a polarizing and divisive figure pitting one group of Americans against another. Obama’s policies and rhetoric are detrimental to America, which is part of his “master plan” to transform America. Obama is an evil Community Agitator and the sooner he is out of office the better it will be for the country.
It doesn’t really matter what your opinion is about this group. Whether you are against a completely minority troop or not. I understand the views of both sides of the argument, but this kind of hate is unacceptable.
They are so disgusting that they no longer go after just adults. Nope. Now they have to berate innocent kids.
