Rioters across the United States have waved Mexican flags in various American cities to protest the death of George Floyd, allegedly at the hands of a Minneapolis, Minnesota, police officer.
While rioters waved Mexican flags, American flags were routinely burned at riots in Los Angeles, California, Atlanta, Georgia, Portland, Oregon; and Chicago, Illinois.
In one video posted online, a rioter with a Mexican flag can be seen helping beat a man who was carrying and waving an American flag. In another post, rioters in Los Angeles torched an American flag while rioters with Mexican flags attacked police vehicles.

Portland: A man brought an American flag to the antifa/BLM protest (later riot). He is confronted & then sucker-punched by a man wearing a "F— Trump" shirt. The mob rushed in to beat him. He never let go of the flag. @PortlandPolice did not help. #Antifa #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/OAP6L0THeE

Does this look like organic anger & looting by a group of people angry over racial injustice? Or a group hijacking a protests to further a far different agenda?

Chants like “El pueblo unido, jamás será vencido” were heard as the Latino community stood in solidarity with the Black community in yesterday’s protest. Mexican, Dominican, and Puerto Rican flags were present in both the Little Village caravan and Loop protest.
