This video truly confuses me. A large group of angry BLM protesters are blocking the road, attempting to make a point and gain attention for their cause, but when a white reporter approaches them and gives them attention, they completely fly off the handle. “Why are you blocking the road?” the reporter asks, as he places the microphone in front of one woman. “WHY THE F*CK ARE YOU HERE??” the woman snaps back. This could have been a great opportunity for the woman to voice her frustrations in a coherent way, and possibly start some sort of intelligent argument, but instead she lashes out in anger and verbally berates the man who seemed to genuinely want to get answers.
Things like this make me really wonder if they know what they are fighting for, or if they are just acting out on misguided anger. It would be much more efficient to take a more peaceful stance if they truly want things to change. If the police force is so bad, why don’t they sign up for it and make an active attempt to change it? More hate is just going to give birth to more hate. Is it really worth the effort to spew anger and violence to attempt to change things? In the words of the great MLK, “GET THE F*CK OUTTA HERE, GET THE F*CK OUTTA HERE!”
