Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan asserted Sunday night that white men are responsible for much of the widespread destruction across the country during protests against the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after an officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes.
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, she wrote Sunday night on Twitter, adding that they experience the height of privilege and are co-opting peaceful demonstrations.

I blame the wet sidewalk for rain.
Someone once said that there are a few good Democrats...but I don’t believe it.
The narrative must be maintained.
Antifa rather than Antifa!
1 Jun: NBC: Police describe anarchists’ extensive prep for violence, including ‘bicycle scouts’
Law enforcement has been focused in recent years on foreign-inspired terror in the U.S., not antifa and homegrown anarchists.

U.S. police officials said they are examining both local and out-of-state actors focused on creating damage and inciting violent confrontations with police (and possibly other protesters) in the name of anarchist and antifa causes.
As has been seen in New York’s SOHO and Union Square neighborhoods, as well as in L.A.’s Fairfax District, Chicago’s The Loop, and Philadelphia’s Center City neighborhood, some of these actors appear to be specifically targeting more wealthy areas or areas perceived as more wealthy...
On Sunday night, New York’s top terrorism cop, Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller, detailed his office’s analysis and investigation into why the New York City protests have become so violent and damaging at times.
“No. 1, before the protests began,” Miller said, “organizers of certain anarchist groups set out to raise bail money and people who would be responsible to be raising bail money, they set out to recruit medics and medical teams with gear to deploy in anticipation of violent interactions with police.”
He added, “They prepared to commit property damage and directed people who were following them that this should be done selectively and only in wealthier areas or at high-end stores run by corporate entities.”
“And they developed a complex network of bicycle scouts to move ahead of demonstrators in different directions of where police were and where police were not for purposes of being able to direct groups from the larger group to places where they could commit acts of vandalism including the torching of police vehicles and Molotov cocktails where they thought officers would not be.”...
“We believe that a significant amount of people who came here from out of the area who have come here as well as the advance preparation, having advance scouts, the use of encrypted information, having resupply routes for things such as gasoline and accelerants as well as rocks and bottles, the raising of bail, the placing of medics,” Miller said. “Taken together, (this) is a strong indicator that they plan to act with disorder, property damage, violence, and violent encounters with police before the first demonstration and or before the first arrest.”...
This is not the first time that antifa or anarchist clashes with police have gotten attention...
“White Men”? Care to be more specific there Jenny? Awfully wide demographic group, very diverse. Painting with a very large brush, you are!
Kind of reminds me when my brother and I were young and mischievous. “Mommy. Mommy. Joe made me do it.”
the head of The Guardian garbage newspaper in Australia knows which “white man” is responsible!

Trump wants death. He wants civil war. And a significant portion of Americans still support him. This is just horrific

On her black and white tv she sees only white
More like anti-Trump voters, sweetie pie.
So she agrees with Trump...antifa
white man is euphemism for GEORGE SOROS and BILL GATES.
The idiot white Pittsburgh Chief of Police did the same thing. Called out white men. Meanwhile the video shows a bunch of blacks and whites. They are trying to blame whitey for this.
I wonder if she agrees with Trump that Antifa is a terrorist organization.
White women are running around at some of these scenes inciting people as well. So he may have a point that the locals are just fuel added to a fire lit by someone else.
Time to round up this Antifa crowd.
I guess this moron didn’t notice that pro-life Trump has spent the last four years avoiding stupid Middle Eastern wars and working to strengthen the US economy. She has no clue who is trying to tear all that dowm.
The Antifa kids and leadership had immunity under Obama.
Hopefully, Attorney General Barr will hold them accountable and take it all the way up to Soros and Obama.
Right because BLM and Antifa are there in peace.
Thats fine. So go out and arrest them all, prosecute them and throw them in jail for about 30 years. Please do.
Of course, we all know thats never going to happen, because we all know the political leaning of the whites involved in these riots.
