Page Six reports on some drama at the National Association of Black Journalists’ convention in New Orleans today.

A panel discussion on police brutality includes controversial White House adviser Omarosa Manigault.

“The majority there don’t want her involved. It’s heavy drama. Everyone sees it as extremely offensive,” a source told the Post.

New York Times magazine reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones was scheduled to moderate the panel, but has pulled out. Former MSNBC and BET anchor Ed Gordon, now with Bounce TV, will now moderate the discussion.

“My career has been built on controversial interviews. Let’s see what happens today,” Gordon tweeted.
