A citizen journalist from Rebel Pundit filmed the real fight in the street during the Black Friday demonstrations in Chicago. Looks like trouble in paradise when BLM gets push back from grassroots black activists. This is what was reported thanks to brave citizen journalists:
“At the outset of the march, grassroots protesters commonly associated with the group Voices of the Ex-Offenders (V.O.T.E.) led the march north on Michigan Avenue and away from Jesse Jackson and his media entourage. The majority of viewers observing the events on television were unaware of how the march began as cameras and reporters remained trained on Jackson.
In doing so, media failed to capture the true tenor of the Black Friday march, including marked disunity among the groups represented that day, professional operatives attempting to stop our filming of the hostility toward Black Lives Matter activists by grassroots activists, and Black Youth Project 100 protesters inciting violence even as they chanted “peace,” as seen in our footage.
A white man from with the Black Youth Project 100 attempts to tell us we cannot film, and “we are not doing interviews,” just before a hispanic man with the group physically assaults me, attempts to prevent my camera from recording. During the encounter with the hispanic man, a hispanic woman warned me, that “for your own protection, you need to stop filming.”
