It caused a stir, since the organization Black Lives Matter Denmark and its spokeswoman, Bwalya Sørensen, called on white people to step to the side at the demonstration in Copenhagen on Sunday, where some 15,000 people participated.
She would simply have the black and brown, because it was them, it was about in the demonstration, which came in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in the UNITED states.
even before the demonstration, put the organization of the stage on his Instagram account:
’Some slagråb is not for you. 'Hands up don't shoot'. 'I can't breathe'. Not everything is for white people – not even those who turned up in solidarity. To be choked and shot is not the thing that happens to white people, in as high degree it happens to black people,' wrote one.
But it has proven to hit her like a boomerang.
First it was the tv-host Jeppe Søe, in BT hit out at them, and now tells Jamil Fearrington, captain in the suburbs of Brønshøj and former football player Francis Dickoh, to Ekstra Bladet, that they do not can back up Bwalya Sørensen's approach and retotik – and that it can potentially harm the movement in Denmark.
- It is quite absurd. How a person like her does not even see the absurdity of making specific rules for specific skin tones at a demonstration against discrimination based on skin color...say the Fearrington, which Bwalya Sørensen and Francis Dickoh is colored.
He calls it even for ’the coolest in the world’, that there are (white) people, ’which is not itself affected by, for example, discrimination or racism, but that is in the forefront. That they bother to take the time to fight for others ' terms. It is beautiful, and it should not udskammes for. It is raceopdeling, and that is what we are fighting against’, he says.

He backed up by Francis Dickoh, who, when the Fearrington on Twitter wrote that he græmmedes of the leadership in the Black Lives Matter Denmark, reacted immediately and replied that he had written to them, that they should ’drop their miserable message.
For Extra Magazine explains the former FC Nordsjælland profile:
- It, I studser a bit over, is that we have got a momentum, which is unprecedented on a global level. And the message is that everyone should be equal. And the more mouths, the more votes. When you stand up and shout, enough is enough, is it wrong to give guidance on how to demonstrate, so long as it is done in a peaceful manner of course.
- I understand that there are symbols such as the clenched fist, which tells a story about the black man's struggle for freedom and equality. It is emotional, it evokes the feelings, that is a disgusting timeline associated with it. But one has to understand the parts, then the same statement even more powerful.
- Communication to include and the feeling of a community SHOULD be paramount. For only together are we stronger - only together we can change for the better, he says.
- To set out guidelines is too bad. Maybe there is someone who thinks that it is us against them. For me it's all of us against racism. And it becomes difficult to stand on the target, when the movement goes out with the guidelines, he says, and adds that ’there shall be no rules’.
For Jamil Fearrington is Bwalya The behavior of a point for themselves. Also here, there is room for improvement.
- The rhetoric, she leads...it is a different point. Later in the interview about pressure to stop the demonstration in Aalborg. All thinking, of course, that she is crazy, he says, referring to an interview with solidarity.dk.

Tuesday shout Black Lives Matter Denmark a demonstration in Aalborg. But according to Amnesty International they had first joined a second demonstration planned by students in the city, who had originally made contact to the Black Lives Matter Denmark, however, had not responded.
Therefore, organized the young people's demonstration itself.
It was Black Lives Matter Denmark, however, thwarted, when, according to Bwalya Sørensen's article on solidarity.dk could not execute two demonstrations in the same city on the same day, and that it was her organization that did it, since ’it is important that black people leader this battle, and that it becomes a BLM-event,’ as she said.
In the same breath attacked she sharply out after the Amnesty and the students and called them liars. Amnesty's claim that it was the students who were the first, was a lie.
– But to lie, an outright fabrication, and start a svinekampagne, because Black Lives Matter would like to keep a... drum beat....Black Lives Matter the match-event. And then white people chase us away. It is white supremacy and racism, misogynistisk mess to say the least, thundered she.
Ekstra Bladet has tried to get a comment from Bwalya Sørensen, but she has at the time of writing not responded to our request.
