No Whites Allowed


In a recent effort to tackle race relations, some county social workers were sent to New Orleans to a conference held by the National Association of Black Social Workers.

Brian Parnell said he and his co-workers attended the conference, but Parnell said he wasn’t allowed inside because of the color of his skin.

Parnell is Caucasian, and he said he never made it in the conference.

“I approached the registration table and was greeted by a very friendly fellow who looked me in the eye and said, ‘Are you black?’” said Parnell. “I told him that I'm not and he told me that the conference was only for people who were black and so I wasn't able to register to attend the conference.”

Convinced the individual had mis-spoke, Parnell said he contacted his fellow co-workers and his superior in Bakersfield.

“I was able to speak with a conference chair at the conference who basically reiterated to me the same thing that Brian has been told,” said, Parnell’s supervisor, Pat Cheadle.

The NABSW is a non-profit organization and prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race. This is also the same organization which has continued to push for policies that would leave Black children bouncing from foster home to foster home rather than being adopted by white parents. (Ironically, most of the foster parents would be white).

In 1996 a Federal bill was offered that would made illegal the use of race in determining adoption placement. But before the bill could make it to a full vote, the NABSW pressured congressmen into adding an amendment that would allow for an exception if the “social worker” felt it was needed, thus gutting the law. It was passed nonetheless.

The NABSW are a group of bigots that have traumatized children for way too long, and I really hope their tax-exempt status get revoked for this.
