Armed Black Protesters Arrested in North Carolina

Jordan Green has the story: “As a peaceful protest was dispersing on Tuesday night [June 2], Greensboro police arrested six African-American men, charging them with violating a North Carolina statute called ‘Weapons at Parades Etc. Prohibited’ and seizing guns from five of them. In contrast, three white men, including one with a history of firearms training with open white supremacists, showed up armed with handguns and rifles while wearing paramilitary gear at the protests on the first three nights while making violent posts on Facebook, and have so far managed to avoid incurring any similar charges from the Greensboro Police Department.” The double standards here are shocking.
