Seattle mayor accuses white people of destruction and riots in the USA
Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan Democrat came out on Twitter yesterday to show her attitude to the “white men,” who are participating in the protests. Users have already condemned the words.
“I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men,” Durkan wrote.

“These individuals experience the height of privilege and are co-opting peaceful demonstrations that were organized by and meant to center people of color, particularly Black Americans,” she added.
This statement generated an unambiguous reaction to society. All users, as one, accused the official of racism. Some even attached a photo of “White supremacist” who “loot local Target”.
One user even presented evidence that it was white people who rob and destroy public and private property.
