A City of Portland Police Officer, Jakhary Jackson, spoke out about Black Lives Matter protesters in the city, calling them hypocritical. Jackson stated that the protesters had fewer minorities in their “violent” crowd than the police officers they’re supposedly fighting against.
Jackson said: “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 and you have white people screaming at black officers: ‘You have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen”
Jackson went on to say that when he did engage in conversation with another minority, a white protester would yell for the person to stop speaking with him. “Every time I try to have a conversation with someone that looks like me, someone white comes up and tell them not to talk,” Jackson said.
