So I watched the “unedited” version of the video which is not the same video but I did it so you don’t have to. Here’s what happened.
Four Black men peacefully exercising their freedom of speech whatever they were saying or whether you agree. A literal mob of these boys starts to gather on the steps of the Lincoln memorial....
.... but for the better part of the time they were there jeering and being rude but not close enough to do anything. Then, suddenly, some of them start to whip the others up and they begin dancing around and getting louder
One rips his jacket and two shirts off and they get riled up and from what it looked like to me, were mimicking apeS which, you know, racist. RACIST. then they start to advance on the Black men
At that time there is still space between them and the Black men but as Mr. Phillips said, he and others in a small group of elders began walking peacefully between the boys on one side and the Black men on the other.
They absolutely swarmed all over Mr Phillips and were yelling and jeering and doing war whoops in his face. So yeah. There is a longer video. And it’s worse.
