Demonstrators gathered in Rochester, New York, Friday for another night of protests, proudly declaring that they “shut shit down” and reportedly segregating demonstrators by race.
For over a week, activists have taken to the streets of Rochester to protest the police-involved death of Daniel Prude, a black man who police restrained after he ran naked in the streets in March. He ultimately died of asphyxiation.
On Friday night, protesters chanted that they “shut shit down” and reportedly segregated activists by race, according to the Blaze host and reporter Elijah Schaffer:
BLM protesters have begun segregating protesters
They made a “black only” section to resolve disputes,
then walked up to white people and told us only black people were allowed in this section
