KETV Omaha: Blacks only meeting' held at 32nd, Pinkney

OMAHA, Neb. —After gun violence led to many calls for the community to work together, a "blacks only meeting" was held at 32nd and Pinkney.

When asked why he called a black folks-only meeting, North Omaha community activist Willie Hamilton responded, "I don't mean to laugh, but the reason why I called this meeting is because our problems need to be worked out behind closed doors. No excuses. No apologies. Our problem needs to be worked out behind closed doors. We cannot have an honest conversation with white folks in the room."

Hamilton said it's time for the people who live in North Omaha to get a handle on its problems. He took to Facebook and called on his community, advertising a meeting for "black folks only."
