'Skid Row Pastor' Explains The Depth Of The Anger Felt By Protesters
As L.A. heads into its fifth day of protests, Stephen “Cue” Jn-Marie – a.k.a. The Skid Row pastor – says that the uprising isn’t only about police brutality.
"George Floyd was the spark, but this crowd was protesting more than just the death, the murder of George Floyd. They were protesting income inequality, capitalism. That's why you're seeing them burning stuff. Student loans, all of this. Health care. Most of the crowd were between 16 and 35. So the young people in America are saying, ‘We are done. We are finished.’"
“I feel like the same violence we’re denouncing is the same violence we’re using to try to stop violence.”
