According to a post from The Daily Caller, a freelance reporter named Tim Pool, who usually covers things like riots and protests, posted a video saying that he will not be covering the riots and protests in Milwaukee because he’s “perceivably white” and it’s not safe for anyone who is white – whether they are press or otherwise. And Pool says, “perceivably white,” because he himself has Korean ancestry, which makes him a minority. But the rioters aren’t asking light-skinned people about their family trees before targeting them for violence.
Take a look at Pool’s video:
Pool has been covering riots and protests for some time and it is something he is even known for. For him to be say it is too dangerous to be there means that you know things are bad.
This has happened before. Black Lives Matter protesters have shouted and screamed at a reporter who came to cover their protests and give them a platform to talk about why they were protesting. Their animosity only came from the reporter being white. He did nothing and said nothing to instigate a fight. His only crime was being white.
There isn’t a point to protests like these outside of hurting innocent people and destroying property. This won’t change anything for the better and the sooner these people realize this the better.
