Black Lives Matter is so annoying, even leftist Pride folk have to tell police to get them the heck out of there…
LAKEVIEW — The 2015 Chicago Pride Parade came to a grinding halt around 1:45 p.m. Sunday as protesters staged a “die-in” to draw attention to the challenges facing LGBT communities of color.
About 15 protesters, most wearing black shirts sporting #BlackOutPride logos, were marching in the parade before they reached Addison and Halsted streets. Then, some laid down on the ground and others sat in a circle around them, bringing the parade to a stop.
They chanted “Black lives matter” and “Stonewall was a f—ing riot,” a reminder of June 1969 riots for LGBT rights in New York that led to pride parades in Chicago and around the country.
After the pause in the parade progression was noted by the crowd, some booed, while other cheered the protesters.
Police officers spoke to a woman who appeared to lead the protesters, who refused to disband at officers’ request. After about 10 minutes, about six of the protesters were led away from the intersection in handcuffs and taken to the Town Hall police district, 850 W. Addison St.

Apparently corporations and news are bad. Except when you want them to listen to you or use their products to promote your cause…
Best sign? “Rainbows are just reflected WHITE light”, translation, all you gay white folk are racist.
