A Black Lives Matter activist hijacked the Orlando vigil held on Monday, using the microphone opportunity to lambast the white attendees who were mourning the terrorist attack that took place last Sunday in Florida.
“I was really nervous to get up here because there’s a lot of white people in the crowd” said the activist, while audience members nervously laughed. “That wasn’t a joke” she added.
“I wish this many people came out to our racial demonstrations and our Black Lives Matter movements. I don’t want to stand up here and be angry, because this isn’t for me, this isn’t for you, it’s for the people that we lost, and the people that we lose tomorrow, and the people that lost yesterday. But I thought I’d take a moment to list out some facts that many of you probably don’t know because you’re white”.
The activist, who would better be described as a protester, then went on to complain about racial tensions in America and belittle the audience that was grieving for the loss of nearly 50 lives.
“As much as it’s awesome that so many people are here today, it’s like who are you really here for” she continued.
