DAILYKENN.com -- Black candidates for mayor of Savannah, Georgia held a meeting at which they discussed a "vision for an inclusive" Savannah.
The conference, however, was not inclusive. Non-black reporters were not allowed to attend the event that was reportedly held a black church that, it is assumed, is given non-profit tax status by federal, state, and local governments. Some suggest that political meetings held in houses of worship violates the principle of separation of church and state.
The event was reported March 28, 2019.
