Goodbye Martin Luther King's dream, hello 1940s racism.

At least, that seems to be the attitude in Seattle's progressive-run "Capital Hill Autonomous Zone," which has taken a breather from shaking down businesses and lighting dumpster fires to set up a "blacks only" zone in a local park. 

The "Black Out" zone, set up as "an all-black healing space," was filmed this weekend being surrounded and cordoned off by a human chain of white protesters who were actively keeping anyone of any other race from entering the park. 

"This space is held right now for just black folks," one masked activist told the man behind the cell phone.

"So just full black?" he clarified, explaining that he was "half-Italian, half-Colombian."

"Um...if you have black ancestry or,, if you've experienced oppression because you are black, then you can enter this space," she answered, telling him the area was being held for blacks only until 8 p.m.
