During the “Black Lives Matter” demonstrations held throughout the United States last year, the police were often heavily armed and used riot weapons such as rubber bullets and tear gas against demonstrators calling for racial equality.
In the violent attack on the Capitol with weapons by Trump supporters, some police allowed protesters to pass through. Crossing the gate of the Capitol, escorting them down the steps, and even taking selfies, causing protesters to make a scene in Congress.
In the face of demonstrations of different races, the attitude of the police before and after is in sharp contrast, which makes many Americans wonder how the police will react if these protesters who hit Congress are of African descent.
ABC “Good Morning America” anchor: What would happen if those people’s skin colors changed to our skin color and saw us climb the walls and break the windows of the Capitol?
Patrice Carles, organizer of the “Black Lives Are Life” campaign in the United States: First of all, this will never happen, because we will face a large number of live-fire policemen who will fully respond to the “Black Lives are Life” movement.
As we experienced last summer, most protesters were brutally attacked by police tear gas, rubber bullets, etc., and we just called on law enforcement officials to end the killing of black people. I want to say that if black people try to rush to the Capitol, it will face a massacre.
American reporter Ganderson: We all know that when the demonstrators are mainly black and brown, the police will deal with it completely differently. I don’t think it is too extension, because we have witnessed such things again and again.
If you want to heal this country, treat all of us fairly and equally under the law.
