The fight ain’t even close to being over
Protesters For Mike Brown Confront Racist St. Louis Cardinals Fans
A group of white St. Louis Cardinals fans clashed Monday night with a group of black protesters seeking “justice for Mike Brown,” the unarmed teenager gunned down by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer.
A video posted online by Argus Streaming News shows the group of young demonstrators rhythmically chanting “we gonna shut the sh*t down” outside the Cardinals’ playoff game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, reported Deadspin.
An older white man angrily tells the demonstrators to get jobs, and then he notices the video camera recording his reaction.
“That’s right!” he yells toward the camera. “If they’d be working, we wouldn’t have this problem.”
The man takes a long draw from a cigarette and disappears into the crowd, as the videographer describes his remarks as “racism at its finest.”
The demonstrators then start up a chant calling for the arrest of Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9 in the St. Louis suburb.
Fans gathered across a guardrail in an outdoor smoking area attempt to drown out the demonstrators by chanting, “let’s go Cardinals,” but they switch over to another chant in support of the officer after some of the fans loudly shout “let’s go Darren!”
The fans then begin chanting “Darren Wilson” and clapping, and a man in a Cardinals jacket calls a protester a “crack head” and urges him to see a dentist.
“Racism at it’s finest” we couldn’t have said it better. SMH.
