ARMED PLUS PROTESTER EQUALS WHITE

"A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson told CNN that the agency and the Bureau of Land Management are monitoring the armed protesters."

~ Washington Post




Before I tell you the whole story - That single sentence captioned above lets you know the protesters are white, right? The sentence does it all by itself right?


Some upset folk in Oregon took over a federal building with guns.  And there are no tanks rolling like there were in Ferguson. The number of protesters involved has been listed as 150. Whether 15 or all 150 had guns, these people aren't falling down dead for having their hand near a fake gun like Tamir Rice.  There's no discussion about how the police are going to mow these violent "armed protesters" down.

You know these "armed protesters" are white right?


The Bureau of Land Management is monitoring the armed protesters. There are not multiple concentric circles of militarily dressed SWAT teams surrounding these armed protesters.


You know these "armed protesters" are white right?

You know the words "white terrorists" will never leave the mainstream media's lips right?


You don't need any pictures, right? The words paint the picture, don't they? You know these "armed protesters" are white right?
Armed + Protester = White

The original story



An armed militia took over a building at a national wildlife refuge in Oregon late Saturday and vows to occupy the outpost for years to protest the federal government’s treatment of a pair of ranchers facing prison time.
The occupation of a portion of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge 30 miles southeast of Burns, Ore., followed a peaceful march for ranchers Dwight Hammond, 73, and Steven Hammond, 46, who are scheduled to report to federal prison in San Pedro, Calif., on Monday after being convicted of arson, according to the Oregonian.
Prosecutors said the father and son set the fire, which burned about 130 acres in 2001 on leased federal land, to conceal poaching, according to CNN

This is like....the ultimate white privilege lesson. A 12 year boy with a toy is more dangerous than 150(?) armed, upset white men. Tamir Rice got two seconds. These white men will get hours to decide to put their guns down and go home.

This is so foul.

Life is not a white privilege.

As this man below points out, all these white people have risen and come together with threat of violence, yet this story is barely worth covering. Let 150 Muslims of black folks gather to protest something sans guns or taking over a federal building and see what happens to the news cycle.
