Do black police lives matter violent white protestors in Portland?
Multiple local Black people have been speaking out against the violence, saying the BLM movement has been co-opted by radical protesters.
Among the critics was a Black Portland Police officer who called out the mostly-white protesters for hurling insults at himself and other Black police officers.
“It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest, you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd and you have white people screaming at Black officers,” Officer Jakhary Jackson said in mid-July.
Portland has become the focal point of Black Lives Matter protests in America, but it has a tortured history when it comes to race
