The images in a series of videos that went viral on social media Saturday showed a tense scene near the Lincoln Memorial.

In them, a Native American man steadily beats his drum at the tail end of Friday’s Indigenous Peoples March while singing a song of unity for indigenous people to “be strong” in the face of the ravages of colonialism that now include police brutality, poor access to health care and the ill effects of climate change on reservations.

Surrounding him are a throng of young, mostly white teenage boys, several wearing “Make America Great Again” caps, with one standing about a foot from the drummer’s face also wearing a relentless smirk.

Title should say "attempt to intimidate" but it was too long. The man kept drumming and singing the song of unity.

Smuggest face 2019 already locked up.

My only "concern" is seeing that the noble doxxers are up to their work again. I'm afraid that's not going to go how they think it will in this case.

I think people have been contacting the school, which is good. They should know how their students are acting on school-sponsored field trips.

But…considering it's a catholic school in Kentucky, I'm assuming the kids will get a slap on the wrist and no real consequences. I'd love to be wrong about that, though.

Is it bad that I really want to punch that kid in the face?

Incidents like this just go to show that it's not about immigration at all, it's about people that are not white.

I'm rolling my eyes so hard at the "but the boys didn't DO anything" crowd. I'm telling people to look up "intimidation" in the dictionary when they spew that sh*t.

This is what toxic masculinity looks like.
This is what white nationalism looks like.
This is what racism looks like.

I can’t imagine anyone supporting this.

He's like a 7 on the Shkreli Scale imo. Someone's definitely eventually going to punch that smug asshole grin right off his face if he doesn't learn to act right.

Yes although it’s a Cincinnati suburb and i think I read tuition is almost $10k/year. So it’s not like it’s rural, southern, Appalachian, poor, hick or any of those other stereotypes that go along with Kentucky. These are affluent privileged white suburban kids.

I wasn't commenting on any of that, actually. Just that a) it's a catholic school (so likely very conservative), and b) it's in Kentucky (which is ALSO very conservative).

Kentucky borders my state btw, and it's a beautiful place to visit. I'm sorry if the things you immediately think when you hear the name are "poor, rural, Appalachian hicks."

Title is misleading. He approached them, they didn’t come to him.
Also left out is the part where the innocent people were yelling at the kids “go back to Europe and America will be destroyed”.
But you know, it was racist Maga teens starting racist fights.
Lol the media is a joke at this point.

There are few to no Catholic schools in the more rural areas you're talking about, ftr.

People think that when they hear the name of my home state as well, unfortunately.

Where are the adults/chaperones that are supposed to be watching those kids? Were they just left free to wander around?

The Catholic School I went to was very strict. They would pounce on you for the slightest infraction of their rules. And there were many rules, both explicit and unwritten.

I've seen a few different videos of what happened and parts are debatable, but I still don't see why you'd stand there looking like a smug asshole if someone were bothering you with a big, scary hand drum. Just walk away.

I do think Noldor has a point about where the chaperones were for this gaggle of high school students, also.

'Conservative' generally doesn't equate to 'no consequences'. Usually that's a Lefty thing...

Remember he’s a teen, and it’s a little surreal that an Indian man is beating a drum in his face.

Wait a minute. Are you telling me that this kid is fragile in some way?

I thought conservatives were tough as nails and all the snowflakes were liberals?!
