A white female activist in the District of Columbia began preaching her views on police oppression to two black members of the DC Metro Police, much to the bewilderment of both the officers and a bystander filming the event.
The woman, who was wearing what appears to be a swimsuit top, mask and hat, was speaking to officers as they stood in front of protesters.
“When you take off your uniform, are you afraid of police?” she asked the officer, who didn’t look at her as she shouted in his direction.
Suddenly, the man filming stepped forward.
“I have a question for you,” the cameraman said as the woman turned to face him. “You’re white and you’re telling this to two black police officers.”
One officer, though masked, could be seen chuckling to himself and shaking his head in apparent acknowledgement of the irony behind the woman’s actions.
“Yes,” the woman replied.
“You uh, see the problem with that, a little bit?” the man asked.
The woman, however, was unwilling to dismount from the high horse.
“Um, no, I don’t,” she said. “Because, you know what? Just because I’m white and I haven’t experienced racism myself, doesn’t mean I can’t fight for justice.”
She then pointed with contempt as her voice grew louder.
“They’re a part of the system!” she said. “They’re a part of the problem. Just because they’re black, doesn’t mean that they’re not part of the problem.”
She then went on to claim “racism is a white person’s problem,” and that she needs to fix it.
