Dem Seattle Mayor blames “white men” for “much of the violence and destruction”

In a provocative tweet that got many people talking, Democrat mayor Jenny Durkan singled out “white men” for much of the “violence and destruction” across the country.

Durkin tweeted:

I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men.

These individuals experience the height of privilege and are co-opting peaceful demonstrations that were organized by and meant to center people of color, particularly Black Americans.

Here are some of the responses:

Rita Panahai “Yeah antifa are pretty white…and vile. So why do you support them?”
