RALEIGH – A few hundred people marched through the streets of downtown Raleigh Friday evening, before destructive behavior had the assembly declared unlawful around 8:00 PM.
A smaller group of losers — almost exclusively white people that apparently never see the sun — remained in march mode, trailed by police, and eventually posting up outside of a popular downtown food hall to scream at them about white privilege or some such thing.

All in all, the disruption and destruction was far less than previous protests, but that isn’t saying much. As local news reporters recounted the early evening tumult on the late night news, they expressed surprise that Raleigh Police Department allowed the harassing of diners go on as long as it did. Even the sympathetic news reporters was wondering when police would stop such aggressive intimidation, a mood that thirsts for violence.
We’ve seen BLM groups accost diners in similar ways around Washington, D.C. and New York City. It’s the kind of thing that becomes hard to imagine tolerating for any length of time.
Unfortunately for Raleigh residents, this was only night one of the loser brigade’s manufactured hissy fit. More events are tentatively scheduled through out the weekend as bodycam footage of the Elizabeth City shooting remains outstanding.
