This video shows some very calm and rational black men and a woman trying to have a discussion with a mob that wants to tear down the Lincoln statue in D.C. As you can see things didn’t go very well.
It’s a bit disturbing how hysterical one of the protesters gets, as she hollers at someone who undoubtedly knows from personal experience more about white racism towards blacks than this pitifully confused creature could ever hope to. In fact it’s hard to watch as these brave men and women get sworn at and completely disrespected. They probably thought explaining the importance of remembering our history and why Lincoln matters so much would help dial things down.
The tear down mob is not at all interested in reason however, they’re just out to throw temper tantrums and destroy stuff.
Here’s another one if you can stomach it. I could post several others but I think you get the idea.
People say they are for black lives, but then have no problem shaming and insulting black people standing right in front of them. Don’t their lives matter too?
