Twitter reacts to 'Come Meet a Black Person' event

Twitter is divided over a networking event encouraging white people to meet black people. Urban Mediamakers is hosting "Come Meet a Black Person" in Lawrenceville. The organization's producer, a black woman, said she wanted to start conversations. Studies show 75% of whites have no friends of any other race. Some on Twitter thought this was a terrible idea. Roy Wood Jr. of "The Daily Show" joked about showing up. Others tried to interpret the event more as the organizers intended.
