Protester incites crowd: ‘White people aren’t afraid of us anymore’

A Washington, D.C., demonstrator Sunday night said the real lesson of George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the Trayvon Martin shooting is simple:

Whites just aren’t scared enough of blacks.

And to her, that’s a bad thing.

angryblackwoman“They’re not afraid anymore of us … They do anything they want to do now … You see a little white girl running down the street at 11 o’clock with her puppy, running by herself! In our community!”

An optimist — even a liberal optimist — might think that’s good. That black neighborhoods have become safer for everyone – white and black, men and women – to venture out in near midnight, protected only by a pet.

But not to this woman, who took the bullhorn right after a fellow protester — one of those unafraid white people — called the Zimmerman acquittal another example of dominant America’s intolerance toward all minority groups.

“There’s democracy in this country for a group of people, for the 1 percent, and the rest of us, the working class, black and brown people, LBGTQ people, we don’t get democracy,” he said.

But tolerance would only go so far in this crowd.

“I would just like to say, this ain’t about none of that LGBTQ oppression,” the woman said, taking her turn with the megaphone. “None of that bullsh*t …”

“This is about a black kid getting shot down because he was black, not no gay sh*t. None of that!”

Nope, none of that. And let’s have no more of these young white women feeling so free to roam that they go jogging through black neighborhoods after dark either.

Next thing you know, they’ll want to marry your daughter.

Watch the video here. But be warned, there are plenty of F-bombs going off.
