They gathered in Congo Square to hear a handful of angry black speakers denounce white supremacy for a while. And as you can see by the crowd shots, the speakers were pretty much the only black people there. I'd say the crowd of maybe 600 people was almost totally white, and maybe 70% female.
They eventually trooped down to the steps in front of Artillery Park, where more speakers blathered on about oppression of blacks and how the government and all police officers are white supremacists, and a hundred or so cops there to protect their right to speak and assemble stood around baking in the heat, undoubtedly wishing that all of these losers would just go home.
And of course the other side was there--all ten or twelve of them.
Actually with one black guy, that makes their group roughly 10% minority and statistically more diverse than the "Black Lives Matter" protest as a whole.
And nothing happened. Some yelling back and forth but eventually everyone went away with no drama, no violence and no arrests.
There was this cute cop though. I took a few pics of her when she wasn't looking.
Uh-oh. I think she sees me.
Actually she's a good friend that you might have seen in a shooting video or two previously. And the dogs love her. So she's ok.
