The College Fix just uploaded a video that shows racial activists hijacking a vigil that was held at the University of Missouri for victims of the Orlando terror attacks.


The video opens with a group of young woman addressing the crowd from a stage.

“I was really nervous to get up here because there’s a lot of white people in the crowd,” one woman states. “And that wasn’t a joke.”

“I wish this many people came out to our racial demonstrations and our Black Lives Matter movements,” she says, earning “Amens” and applause from her peers.

“I thought I’d just take a moment to list out some facts that many of you don’t know because you’re white,” the woman continues. “As much as it’s awesome that so many of you are here today, it’s like, who are you really here for?”

At this point, several members of the crowd begin shouting responses to the woman’s question.

“We’re here for everybody,” an off-screen woman can be heard yelling.

Carl Brizendine — one of the gay men College Fix spoke to — shouts “we are here to be uniting, not dividing, which is what you are doing now.”

Brizendine and his husband are then chastised by the on-stage activists and verbally chased from the rally for voicing their opinions.

“My intention in [attending the rally] was that we need to heal,” Brizendine told the College Fix’s cameraman. “We’re all hurt, but I’m tired of our community… dividing every last thing into color and race.”

“I expected a community to come together. Everyone,” added his husband. “Instead I got someone speaking on stage, talking about her culture and dividing the rest.”
