Gary Chambers is holding the first Black Ball...
So, Gravy is holding the "Black Ball" to honor 28 "black community leaders." White people cannot and will not be honored at his ball. It is a segregated event.

Unbelievably, among others, Hancock Bank, Whitney Bank, Exxon Mobil, and the Baton Rouge Airport have decided to sponsor his segregated ball.

Is this okay?



From Gravy:

quote:

So often we celebrate Black History Month only looking at the past. We want to look at who in the black community is doing it today. Wednesday February 28th at 7pm, join me at The Inaugural Black Ball... Honoring The Rouge 28, twenty eight movers, shakers, social influencers, advocates, activist, entrepreneurs, and change agents who make our city what it is. These 28 black community leaders are deserving of honor and so much more. Get your tickets at the link below. We will be announcing the honorees each week during black History Month. So get your best black fit, and join me. This event is powered by our sponsors: Hancock Whitney Bank, Urban Congress on African American, Baton Rouge Metro Airport, Urban League of Louisiana, Octagon Media, Exxon Mobil, Walls Project, CareSouth, & Open Health.

I'm willing to chip in $50 for a seat at a VIP table if there are 4 other baws that want to join me. Let's see if Gary will let us go.

Honestly I don't think white people are welcome. But, Exxon and Hancock and Whitney Bank think this is okay. Huh?

So it's sponsored and he's selling tickets? I guess this is another way for him to make money without actually working.

So basically he's getting people to pay for his dinner by hosting a black party?

That white people are not honored at his event? He says 28 black people will be honored. No mention of white people. That's how.

Segregated in that white people are not honored. Only black people. It's called the "black ball."
