Detroit festival scraps cheaper ’people of color’ tickets

A global ticketing and event platform has told a group that it could not charge whites more than blacks and other people of color to attend a Detroit event advertised on its website. Organizers initially promoted on Eventbrite that early bird POC (people of color) tickets for the August 3 AfroFuture FEST were $10. NONPOC tickets were $20.

Hmmm When will they learn? It's the law, you can't discriminate against people because of the colour of their skin. Threats from supremacists or some other ridiculous term, had nothing to do with it!
