WATCH: Nestride Yumga tells protesters “Black Lives Matter is a Joke. You are the racists”

“Black Lives Matter” is being widely adopted by corporations as well as professional sports leagues, but not every black person agrees with what the movement stands for.

Last month, Nestride Yumga, an American citizen originally from Africa, caused a stir in a viral video posted by Breitbart where she spoke out against BLM protesters.

Nestride Yumga:

Black Lives Matter is a joke. You are the racists.

Go to Chicago. They don’t have schools, and they die every day. They don’t matter because you can’t get attention from that.

(At this point, Yumga is told to SHUT UP)

She continued:

Group of hypocrites! Go to Southeast D.C., Northeast D.C. Tell them black lives matter! If it matters, it should matter everywhere.

You guys are hypocrites, attention seekers. Black lives should matter everywhere. It doesn’t take a white cop to kill a black person to matter.

When black people kill black people, they don’t come out and do this crap.


Per Andrea Widburg of American Thinker, aside from Yumga’s clarity and courage, there are a couple of perfect moments in the video that sum up who’s driving this train. At 1:13, you hear a woman’s voice say, “Just leave.” As Yumga replies, “You leave,” the camera swings to the woman who spoke those words . . . and it’s a Karen!

Yes, there she is, a white woman with a mask hanging uselessly under her nose and her cute little girl in her arms. Her response to a black woman’s outrage at people who ignore the genuine black carnage in America? “I’m present,” says Karen. “You leave.”

To make things even sillier, she’s not the only Karen to face off against Yumga. At 2:51, another Karen, either white or Asian, also attacks Yumga. “You’re not here to fight injustice. You’re here to cause drama.” When Yumga says that she’s not oppressed but is, instead, free, Ms. Karen shrilly scolds her. “That’s good for you. That’s an individual person. What about a systemic issue?”

You can bet your bottom dollar that Karen 1 and her clone, Karen 2, are both college graduates. That’s where they learn that Karen tone and the Karen stupidity that makes them think they know more about the black experience than blacks do.

Eventually, the crowd of white and black people start calling Yumga a race traitor, while Karen 2 also insists that Yumga leave. She is, after all, interrupting the narrative.
