A female-only retreat in Costa Rica is offering women of color the chance of a break from white people. The getaway location in Puerto Viejo has banned white people, meaning those who attend spend their time exclusively with women of color.

They will have a brown paper bag at the door. If you are not darker than the bag, you are out.
Rachel Dolezal is gleeful.
This would be illegal in the U.S.
But of course, we are nothing but warmongers, thieves, no moral compass, always last on the scene in the event of a tsunami or other natural disaster etc... /s
But more importantly ;), what would Michael Jackson have done? What a quandary...
Dr. King would be appalled.
But he did give Americans a great day off! LOL!
I’m sure Bill and Hillary would be happy to accompany them. ;)
The irony is that a large percentage of American blacks are near the 50% number. Most blacks arent really black as there is a lot of whiteys in their family woodpile.
In case of blacks and minorities in general, success is seen as done by way of hurculean efforts despite the efforts of white oppressors and result in undue and exaggerated celebration and celebrity.
yep went to a black church a few weeks back, besides some preaching the whole thing was surrounded by we are still slaves mentality, calling for freedom, not in Heaven but here, I am thinking uh I don’t see no chains, wtf?
will never end, folks just want an excuse
Racism rears it’s ugly head.
That’s not what I see.
I see Americans in general fawning over celebrities no matter their race and these bring lionized even though they probably shouldn’t be (kinda like that one Cosby quote about him bring man of the year, IIRC, that it should be called a great guy as far as we know award).
Black businessmen and professionals who’ve unglamorously clawed, innovated and led on their way to the top receive no such automatic benefit. The less their success seems to do with their blackness the less likely their celebrityhood. Especially if they don’t go along with the myths of race.
In this respect I see Obama’s idiotic statement “You didn’t build that” to be particularly pertinent. Yes, he meant it of successful people in general but it may reflect an onlooker’s attitude about black people who didn’t need their blackness to succeed and if so it is even more reprehensible.
Celebrities and politicians who gain their wealth or power because of the group, by contrast, are those who seem to get the most leeway.
Why didn’t she open this retreat in Africa?
Or are they running under the idea that anyone born south of the border is black.
She may regret choosing Costa Rica. Isla Nublar is off the coast--what if some of the cloned dinosaurs from Jurassic Park escape to the mainland?
A female-only retreat to file for chapter 11 soon.

Trademark that idea immediately. “It’s gold, Jerry, Gold!” (Seinfeld fan here).
Seriously, though, there is a blockbuster in the making. Consult a lawyer.
Or I will steal your idea. ;) (j/k; would never do that to a fellow FReeper But people lurk here and I would get on it)
Best of luck... Julie
those words tell me all I need to know.
Most Costa Ricsns are white or European so I am not sure what us going on.
