Ida B Wells Coalition Against Racism and Police Brutality in Kansas City

I’ve seen some people argue that if Occupy or BLM had armed themselves like the Oregon militants have, their protests would have been successful. There were in fact some open-carry BLM demonstrations last year, and the police treated them with the sort of respect we’re obliged to give those with weapons. None of these demonstrations, not even the large Black open-carry march in DC, were picked up by the media, politicians, or society at large – in contrast to what’s happening now.

If you’re inclined, read the commentary below. It’s a valid argument, and one to contend with. As always, I also recommend reading Wells’ “Southern Horrors”. Still quite relevant.
