If the riot on the Right wasn’t white, you would be seeing 100 times more cops!
…Observers were appalled by what they describe as the glaring disparity in how police responded to the mostly white rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
“When white vigilantes commit violence, police stand by,” said Jeralyn Cave, senior communications associate with the Advancement Project, a national civil rights and racial justice organization. “And when Black organizers and Black and Brown people are seeking justice, police are violent and attack.”
The scene at the Capitol on Wednesday, Cave said, “is a real testament to the power of whiteness in America.”
