On Wednesday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest revealed that Barack Obama wouldn’t be attending the funeral of Justice Antonin Scalia, but he would instead be going golfing. People weren’t happy about the move, but they’re really not going to be happy after learning who’s going to the White House just before Scalia’s funeral.
It’s no secret that Obama has long supported race-hustler Al Sharpton, but his public support for racist activists is ramping up in his last term, and the guests he has planned for Thursday are evidence of it. The Gateway Pundit is reporting that notorious race-baiter and leader of the #BlackLivesMatter “movement” DeRay McKesson will be attending a meeting with Sharpton, Loretta Lynch, and others.
Obama isnt just meeting w/ the racist DeRay tomorrow. He's hosting a meeting w/ DeRay, Sharpton, Lynch, & the gang https://t.co/JXRnYyJBDi

Isn’t that nice? No families of fallen police officers. No families of Islamic terrorists. Nothing. In fact, utter silence on all of the above. But the #BLM crowd? Come on in, guys! Unreal.
The Baltimore Sun has more on the meeting:
DeRay McKesson the prominent activist and late entrant into Baltimore’s mayoral race, will meet with President Barack Obama and civil rights leaders at the White House on Thursday for an event honoring Black History Month.
Mckesson, a former school administrator and Black Lives Matter protester who co-founded We the Protestors and Campaign Zero, will attend the meeting along with Al Sharpton, Cornell Brooks, president of the NAACP, and Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia.
A White House official described the meeting as a first-of-its-kind gathering of leaders who represent different generations of the civil rights movement, and said the discussion will focus on criminal justice reform and building trust between police and neighborhoods.
Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch will also attend.
Mckesson, who lives in North Baltimore, gained widespread attention during protests after the police-involved shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. He unexpectedly jumped into the race for Baltimore’s mayor earlier this month.
Unbelievable. He can’t attend the funeral of one of the greatest justices of our times, but he can meet with openly racist groups inside the White house. This guy is way too much.
