As the people were protesting a video was live streamed. Although the video was not quite clear but a conversation caught everyone’s attention. A protester called Clyde McLemore holding a Black Lives Matter sign was screaming ”We ain’t won a war yet.”

To which another pro-Trump White man Gary Lloyd replied ”If You don’t like it, why don’t you go back to Africa and see how nice it is there?”

And this video went viral within a few minutes. Although Lemore stated that he is happy after the support he got after this video went viral. But what made him sad was Gary’s remark.  As it was quite racist .

Gary’s Apology

But Gary also gave a statement after the video went viral. And he clarified that he doesn’t believe in racism and everybody is equal in his eyes. But what made him give such a racist reply was that he was angry.

And the reason was that Lemore brought up the topic of US and its history of wars during the Black Lives Matter protests. Thus he felt that it was quite upsetting because he is a true patriot. And doesn’t like his nation’s image to be tarnished. Nevertheless he admitted that his reply was not at all right.
