During a Fox News segment about the Charlotte protest on Wednesday, an unnamed protestor interrupted correspondent Steve Harrington halfway through his report. The young, black woman had some powerful things to say, calling out the danger of normalizing black deaths at the hands of police in America.
“Black people get shot every day, right?” she asked Harrington. “It’s okay for our brothers and our fathers not to come home, right?”
Harrington asked the protestor why she was still at the scene, given the fact another demonstrator had recently been shot. The woman replied:
“Because I serve a purpose, sir. My father serves a purpose, my brother serves a purpose. I’m here because guess what? Whether I’m here, [or] I’m in school, [or ]I’m in my car... I could still get shot by the police.”
