What appeared to be a painfully awkward moment for a packed restaurant of white brunch patrons in Portland, Sunday a group of “Black Lives Matter” protesters barged in while they were eating and began chanting the names of black people killed by police officers.
“Which side are you on friends, which side are you on? Justice for Mike Brown is justice for us all, and we will fight for freedom until this war is won,” was their message.
The dozen or so demonstrators concluded their prepared interruption, insisting that the diners express support for their cause. “Please raise your hands and stand with us if you stand for black lives,” they urged the customers.
While some readily obliged, standing up and raising their fists, others appeared uncomfortable as they glanced around the room checking out what everyone else was doing. Others just sat and got on with their meal. Also children complied with the protesters, despite the fact that they could not possibly comprehend the complexity of the demonstration.
Of course, all this comes at a particularly bad time for “Black Lives Matter” activists after two Ferguson police officers were recently shot by one of the movement’s sympathizers.
Breitbart News has reported on other black brunch demonstrations carried out in Oakland and New York City.
