Black Lives Matter Protesters Burn Bundy Supporter's American Flag in Front of Portland Justice Center

Protesters affiliated with Don't Shoot Portland and Black Lives Matter took an American flag from a supporter of Ammon Bundy and set it on fire in front of the Justice Center this afternoon {Thursday}.

The flag burning is part a protest of what Don't Shoot Portland describes as racial inequities in the treatment of minority protesters and the armed right-wing militants led by Ammon Bundy.

Portland Police cars have shut down a block of Southwest 3rd Avenue in front of the federal courthouse.

2. BLM *should* be pissed about this

readers are free to imagine how things would have been different if it had been a bunch of armed black rights activists taking over that wildlife refuge instead of the lily-white bundy bunch
