Across the country violence once again ruled the weekend and the night in many (democratically controlled) cities. Rioters and “protesters” outright attacking cops. People swarming other people. We’ll have a bunch of those clips and photos posted here in a bit, but this particular video called for its own special recognition.
Lifezette writer Benji Irby was in Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, and he caught on camera a group of BLM protesters objecting to some statue or other. Only problem? They were missing a certain something.
Me and @ShemekaMichelle at the North Carolina State Capitol.
I was coming here to be a nerd and add this to my collection of State Capitol selfies when we ran into a #BlackLivesMatter protest…
with NO BLACK PEOPLE! 🤦🏾♂️
Should we go over there & ruin their day right now? 🤣😂 pic.twitter.com/tuPwkNKuYL

Ayup. You’ll notice in the clip round-up I’m putting together, a lot of the troublemakers and criminals are 20 something white folks too. A lot. Now of course you can expect a protest or even a riot of any stripe in this country to have people of different races (I mean unless it’s in Raleigh apparently), but the point people are making is that there are a lot of activist white lib socialists trying to take this moment and use it to do their own thing.
You might even say they’re “appropriating” it.
