Under marsjen for Jacob Blake (29) gjennom Kenosha lørdag, var det en av talerne som truet med å drepe en av «dere», hvis «dere dreper en av oss».

De fleste talerne snakket om sosial rettferdighet. Men det var en gruppe militante, svartkledde til stede. Lederen bar en stor krumsverd.

Plutselig dukker en taler opp, som omtales som «president» og han hadde et helt annet budskap enn fred.

Most of the speakers talked about justice peacefully. But near the end of the rally, one man introduced as “our president” strayed from the message by saying, “If you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.”

The man, who was not able to be immediately identified, said:

“I love being black. I love black people. I know some of you may not want to say that … You tell us how to behave when you have taken our lives. The black man is worth something. His life is worth something. I have to say god damn it – if you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours. I know everybody don’t want to hear that. But damn why are we the ones who have to keep burying ours and got to keep clean for you to see us as being human? We ain’t never did nothing to nobody.”

Earlier speakers were more focused on social justice and not physical revenge.

Marsjen var arrangerte av Black Family, anført av faren til Jacob Blake, som har samme navn som sønnen. Blake den eldre sa svarte ikke må brenne ned butikker og det de trenger for å leve.
