BLM Protesters Kneel, Rally for Man Killed by Police, Then It Turns Out He’s White


Black Lives Matter has led the charge to make seemingly every issue in America a referendum on race. One example of this came during a protest outside Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s mansion in St. Paul on Sunday. The New York Post reported that dozens of protesters were kneeling outside the mansion amid reports of a shooting involving an officer in Burnsville, Minnesota. Mitti Hicks, a reporter for KMSP-TV in Minneapolis, tweeted a video of the kneeling protesters, some of whom were displaying Black Lives Matter signs, flags and other memorabilia. “Protestors kneel after hearing there was an officer-involved shooting in Burnsville moments ago,” she reported. “This information HAS NOT been confirmed but this group says they’re heading there.” About an hour later, Hicks reported that the protesters were leaving to return to the Brooklyn Center Police Department, where protests were taking place over the police shooting death of Daunte Wright on April 11. “Just an update on this, protestors said later they’re heading back to Brooklyn Center because they need more information about what happened in Burnsville first,” Hicks said in a follow-up tweet.
