In a stunning viral video with over a million views, Portland Police Officer Jackson Speaks Out against Racist White “Protesters.”
“It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest, you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd,” Jackson says.
Asked “What was it like in that capacity in the first few weeks when that fence was up around the Justice Center?”
Jackson replied “I got to see folks that really do want change, like the rest of us, that have been impacted by racism, and then I got to see those people get faded out by people that have no idea what racism is all about, never experienced racism, that don’t even know that the tactics that they are using are the same tactics that were used against my people.”
