WATCH: Black Lives Matter Screams At Buttigieg
A day after South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 presidential contender, was shouted down at a town hall in his city, he was confronted and screamed at by Black Lives Matter protestors while he marched with them.
One protestor asked him black lives mattered to him. He responded as though he couldn’t believe such a question would be asked of him.
“Did you ask me if black lives matter?” he said. “Of course black lives matter!”
“Then fire your cops!” one protestor screamed back.
Another protestor jumped in, also screaming at the mayor as he listened impatiently.
“What matters about a black life to you, Mayor Pete?” the woman yelled. “What matters about a black life to you?”
“The same thing that matters to me about my own,” he said.
He continued to be pelted with angry screams from the crowd, which could not be placated.
A white police officer shot and killed a black man in South Bend after the man allegedly approached him with knife, causing racial strife.
