Black Lives Matters protesters accost white diners for not raising fists

A group of young Black Lives Matters protesters harassed several white diners in Washington, DC on Monday night for not raising their fists in solidarity.

One of the dramatic scenes, which has since gone viral, was captured by Washington Post reporter Fredrick Kunkle and posted to Twitter.

The video shows a crowd of young, mainly white, demonstrators closely surrounding and berating the woman, identified as Lauren Victor.

“White silence is violence!” the crowd screamed. “Put your fist up!” others yelled.

Victor, an urban planner sitting across from another white woman who was raising her right first, told Kunkle she felt like she was under attack.

“In the moment, it didn’t feel right,” she told the reporter.

“I wasn’t actually frightened. I didn’t think they’d do anything to me,” Victor said. “I’m very much with them. I’ve been marching with them for weeks and weeks and weeks.”

A similar scene played out at least one other DC restaurant Monday night, where protesters targeted a young white couple.
