    Democrat Stacey Evans’ speech to a conference of progressive activists descended into chaos on Saturday, as protesters interrupted her repeatedly and she struggled to make herself heard over chants of “support black women.”

    So, uh, what exactly were they protesting?

    I've read 3 articles on the matter, I still have no idea, and that just about extinguished my interest in reading any more.

    I know nothing about either of the candidates in question, so I can't comment on character or policies myself, but I find the situation to be pretty sad. As far as I can tell, the only thing the "protesters" are angry about is the possibility that a white person might win the election.

    Then again, there could be more substance to it that is being hidden by sloppy reporting :blackeye: but given today's political climate, I wouldn't be surprised if that's all there really was to it.

    When questioned, they don't know.

    Is this irony or karma?
