Posted by on Jul 20, 2013 in Blog, Featured | Comments Off on UPDATED – Cville Fights Against Racist Hate Speech – Help Them Out!

Several dozen protesters gathered outside of Cville Weekly offices last night. Giles Morris, the editor, came out to deliver a vaguely cvillebannerworded statement of apology, but refused to answer any questions about how the “mistake” happened or to promise that they would not continue to print anonymous hate speech in The Rant.

The event was well-covered by the media:

The AP Story ran far and wide including The Richmond Times Dispatch, Washington Post and even and English-language newspaper in Taiwan.

And in the meantime – please continue to push the updated petition!

 

In the same issue that announced and commented on the Trayvon Martin verdict, Charlottesville’s arts and entertainment paper Cville Weekly published a racist diatribe in their “rant” section. The comments crossed the line from free speech into dangerous hate speech – the kind that dehumanizes people, emboldens violent extremists and contributes to an atmosphere conducive to hate crimes. See a photo of the text below. (Trigger Warning – Racist Hate Speech)

write my papers

cvilleweeklyracismCville residents are organizing to fight back, including two participants in Wayside’s Breaking Barriers, Building Power program, two of whom are organizers with PHAR, Chharlottesville’s Public Housing Association of Residents and recipients of this year’s People’s History Award.

In this moment it’s more important than ever for us to speak with a unified and powerful voice.

Join them in Charlottesville, if you can, on Monday at the offices of Cville Weekly where they will demand a retraction, an apology and a policy change to prevent hate speech from being published in the future.

Please help gather at least 100 signatures on the online petition before the protest. The editor will receive an e-mail each time it is signed.
