A woman repeatedly yelled “black lives don’t matter” as opposing groups of protesters confronted each other at a rally outside the Vermont State House in Montpelier on July 25.
Local media reported that counter protesters showed up at the rally, which was held in support of Vermont law enforcement.
This video shows a woman confronting counter-protesters and saying “black lives don’t matter at all to me” and “white lives matter.” The woman is later seen singing “God Bless America” and toting a sign that reads “BLM=Terrorist organization.”
“You’ve had everything. Free f****** everything. Blacks have been coddled for years. Free college, free everything,” the woman says in the video.
Zanevia Wilcox, an 18-year-old counter-protester, told Storyful she was the person being yelled at in this video.
“I had to be the one to stand in front of my black brother and despite the amount of police around the perimeter I had to smile and shake my head as people threatened to spit on me, threatened my existence and physically pushed me out of hatred,” Wilcox told Storyful. Credit: @_sofro_ via Storyful
