White dancer cries racism at African festival
A woman says she was kicked off the dance floor of a St. Louis Arts Festival because she is white.
Susan Stone said she was dancing at the event in Forest Park, when a staff member asked her to stop, then made a racist remark.
“He tells me ‘you can’t be doing this here this is an African American event you can’t be at this event you’re not black,’” Stone said. “I feel angry because they’re missing out on the beauty of everything we’re all supposed to get along together that’s what God says.”
Stone said she caught the alleged incident on tape.
The event’s co-chairman told KMOV that while Stone was disrupting the performances and was uncooperative when asked to stop, the employee acted out of line.
Stone, who dances at festivals in the city throughout the year, has her own YouTube channel under the username “danceoflifedancer.
