“Whites must move to the back!” These anti-white remarks were made during the “Pride March” in Lyon, France. Non-white organisers demanded that the white participants stand at the back of the procession.
On June 12, the Pride March also had its share of controversy. The demonstration was held in several large cities in France, including Lyon, where comments unleashed criticism on Twitter: “Whites must move to the back!” a young black man had shouted into a megaphone.
On his social media account, the author of these remarks even boasted of having “fired the whites from the procession which was non-mixed racialized”. He also allegedly claimed to have called white people “aspirins” – a racial slur – when ordering them to move to the back.
While this Pride March brought together tens of thousands of people across France, calling for the fight against discrimination, and in particular homophobia, these remarks unsurprisingly did not go unnoticed on Twitter: “Uninhibited racism”, “a shame”, “unacceptable”, “The Pride March: fight against discrimination by discriminating”.
However the message of tolerance advocated by the event was apparently only a white heterosexual concern judging by the response on social media.
A meeting previously took place in connection with the organisation of Pride 2021 in Lyon during which participants voted whether they would be in favour of a racially divided march on the one hand or a racially mixed march on the other.
For: 90,9 percent
Against: 0 percent
Abstentions: 9,1 percent
And this is by no means a new development as far as “diversity” is concerned. During the Lesbian March of April 25, 2021 in Paris, organisers shouted “Whites to the back!” too.
Similarly, the LGBTI centre of Tours had called for racial categories in a march in May this year because “some racialized people do not feel comfortable in mixed processions”. The Green EELV mayor of Tours defended the “non-white zone put it in place”. Emmanuel Denis called this choice an “inclusive” and “open” one.
The LGBTI centre eventually cancelled its demonstration “in the face of the threats and risks incurred for the association but also for all the people who wanted to go to this march” while Denis, on Twitter, cited “a controversy instrumentalized by the far right”.
