Since the Columbia, SC shooting that took place last month, the entire state has been the center of attention in the racial conversation. South Carolina was also the scene for some nearly violent protests this past weekend as a Black Panther Party rally went sour. The peaceful rally was interrupted by a ‘KKK’ march where some hateful slurs were thrown back and forth between groups.
Police had to detain several individuals and by the end of the afternoon, the KKK group was found hiding in a local parking garage away from the trouble they had caused. See the video below.
Super sad scene! The scariest thing is that if this were a black and white video, you may mistake it for a video shot in the Civil Rights Era. The conversation needs to shift from awareness to a solution. What are your thoughts? Get at me on Twitter @LordBrianJames
