Richard Spencer booked a venue at the University Florida to give a public speech on October 19th.
Anti-White Nationalist & Supremacist protesters came to the university to shout down Richard Spencer as he spoke.
Spencer was often interrupted.
He appeared to have few supporters among those who sat in the audience to listen to his public talk.
About 15 white men — dressed in white shirts and khaki pants — raised their hands when he asked who identified with the Alt-right.
The Alt-right is a group of mostly White Men who reject North American politics that are defined as politically correct, and several of them are neo-Nazis, white supremacists and anti-Semites.
The Anti-Richard Spencer protestors mostly shouted at as well as punch the Alt-right guys who walked out of the venue once the public talk was over.
But there was one exceptional Black man who did an extraordinary thing:
Randy Furniss who was wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with swastikas on Thursday, October 19th, was surrounded by a crowd of Antifa protesters who screamed, punched and spat on him before Aaron Courtney gave him a hug.
“I could have hit him, I could have hurt him … but something in me said, ‘You know what? He just needs love.’“
Speaking to the New York Daily News early Friday, Aaron Courtney said, “It’s a step in the right direction. One hug can really change the world. It’s really that simple.”
Good for you, Aaron Courtney. 👏
Now can other Antifa protestors do the same gesture of a hug instead of being violent toward the white guys who attend Richard Spencer’s public talks?
I see a cycle of violence happening during these protests.
