SFIMC CAUGHT AGAIN BASHING MINORITIES

Once again San Francisco IMC was caught in the act of supporting the mistreatment of minorities. listing a free mime troop that is putting on racist skits featuring the depiction of native Americans as blood thirsty savages.
this portrayal if the native Americans culture is crude and offensive to all who are of native Americans ancestry. the insulting nature of this sidewalk skit is only rivaled by the insistence of sf editorial staff that they are just having fun and that the Indians need to loosen up.

when sf imc was contacted by Native-American-Online.Org demanding a formal apology and a retraction of inflammatory statements. Sf Imc declined to issue a statement

Please write how this SF Mime troup production is racist. Also, how are IMC collective members responsible for an announcement that was posted to their open newswire? You write "Once again San Francisco IMC was caught in the act of supporting the mistreatment of minorities." How have they bashed minorities in the past?

thanks
It is not racist to question "outrage."

There is a patronizing white liberal racist who works at the IMC who keeps calling me a racist. He even calls me racist at IMC meetings behind my back. This article here presents a claim that native americans are outraged. My response that they are overreacting is not racist, it is simply disagreed with by Matthew. Again my posts are being targeted by Matthew. I will not stand for this. If anyone thinks I am a racist, please invite me to a public meeting and call me a racist to my face.
