Minnesota Twins fans were delayed en route to their team’s opening ceremonies after scores of Black Lives Matters protesters circled the train station and blocked entry and exit points, preventing their transport to nearby Target Field.
They chanted, Breitbart reported: “No justice, no peace,” as well as “prosecute the police” and “white silence equals violence.”
One Minneapolis protester going by the Twitter handle of Black Lives MPLS wrote: “They have begun to arrest peaceful protesters demanding #Justice4Jamar 7 end to @Target slave labor.”
The same individual then tweeted, “white silence = violence.”
Protesters formed a human chain and not only blocked the rail system, but also several streets nearby Target Center, the premiere arena for Minneapolis-area concerts and events.
Colin Flaherty’s book, “Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry: The Hoax of Black Victimization and Those Who Enable It,” documents black crime in America and exposes how the media and politicians are willing partners in what the author calls “the greatest lie of our generation.”
The protest was aimed at drawing national attention to November’s police-tied shooting death of Jamar Clark, 24. Prosecutors announced just a few weeks ago they wouldn’t be charging the two officers involved with his death because evidence showed Clark had tried to grab one policeman’s firearm during a physical scuffle, so the shooting was an act of self-defense.
