Some Black folks don't know how to act: Eric Garner’s mom barred from granddaughter’s funeral

There's no reason under the Sun why a grandmother be denied attending her granddaughter's funeral. 

NY Post reports Eric Garner’s mom was barred from her own granddaughter’s funeral on Monday, sparking an ugly shoving match outside a Harlem church.

Gwen Carr wasn’t allowed inside the First Corinthian Baptist Church, where mourners honored Erica Garner, the 27-year-old daughter of Eric Garner — whose death at the hands of the NYPD touched off national protests in 2014.

Carr blamed Monday’s fiasco on her daughter-in-law, Erica’s mother, Esaw “Pinky” Garner.
“She didn’t want none of our family in there, on my side — the Garners,” said Carr, explaining that the family rift has been building for years.
