Two Black conservatives, Benji Irby and Shemeka Michell, were visiting North Carolina’s state capitol in Raleigh, when they noticed a Black Lives Matter protest in the park that only had white people.
In an interview on KTTH-AM, Benji Irby explains:
“As we were walking down a little path, Shemeka was like, ‘Is that a Black Lives Matter sign?’” he said. “And I’m like, ‘What? Is this a Black Lives Matter protest?’ And I’m like, ‘But there are no black people.’ And I’m like, I don’t even do live videos, but I have to share this video, this is absolutely crazy. And there was a whole Black Lives Matter protest there — not a single black person at all.
The Western Journal writes:
And then there’s the beautiful contrast here. Oh, look, a bunch of white people who are Very Angry at what’s happening to black people — and black people who are utterly perplexed at their attitude. In fact, they’re openly derisive of the protesters, laughing at the preposterousness of the situation.
My guess is that this isn’t confined to black conservatives, either. Everyone realizes just how this is nothing more than ostentatious self-flagellation of privileged white people — and no one wants to say anything.
And it is not the first time, this has been noticed. A survey conducted by Pew Research discovered that only 17% of the people participating in the recent protests/riots are black. READ: Pew Research: Only 1-in-6 Protesters Are Black, 46 Percent Are White
