Activist heroically flies over barricade to seize Confederate flag

Added: 25.02.2017 4:13 | 0 views | 0 comments


By climbing a flagpole outside the South Carolina's statehouse, Bree Newsome practically wrote the modern book on removing Confederate flags from public spaces. Apparently, not everyone read that book, so now we have a sequel. Black Lives Matter activist Muhiyidin d'Baha was arrested on Wednesday in South Carolina after epically leaping over a police tape barricade to snatch a Confederate flag out of a protestor's hand. Since it took place directly behind a CBS newscast, the stunning moment aired on live TV — the cameraman followed d'Baha as he quickly ran across the shot.  SEE ALSO: How Black Lives Matter made the leap from social media to social action Check out the unbelievable moment here. Protester jumps barricade and attempts to get Confederate flag from man #chsnews pic.twitter.com/hTBql8qS9Z — Ray Rivera (@RayRiveraLive5) February 22, 2017 The flag was held by a member of the South Carolina Secessionist Party, protesting outside of the College of Charleston's Sottile Theatre, at an event featuring Newsome, an African-American activist, filmmaker and one of the driving forces behind the South Carolina state government's decision to permanently remove the Confederate flag from Capitol grounds. D'Baha was counter-protesting the demonstration when he dove over the police tape, and is now being lauded on Twitter for his remarkable act of resistance. This is Muhiyidin d’Baha, a #blacklivesmatter organizer and, like Bree Newsome, a #RoleModel and #hero. Conviction and courage in action. https://t.co/UgZ3ZVfWs5 — Donald Deeley (@DonaldJDeeley) February 23, 2017 @RayRiveraLive5 Somebody give that young man a medal. He's definitely doing great work. — JL Sigman (@JLSigman) February 23, 2017 That's the shit right there. No place for the confederate flag to be used like that in the US nowadays. We live in 2017, not 1862. https://t.co/uGDpCj2sDX — Jeff (@Vivalawino) February 23, 2017 the guy snatching the confederate flag is a hero, he didn't deserve to be arrested — ️ (@PRINCESSYIXING) February 23, 2017 Not all heroes wear capes @RayRiveraLive5https://t.co/2uw64XNBTu — Melanin God™ (@TrueTashan) February 23, 2017 D'Baha, our new personal hero, was arrested after his leap for justice, and reportedly charged with disorderly conduct by the Charleston Police Department.  Advocacy group Showing Up For Racial Justice Charleston has set up  a crowdfunding page to raise money for d'Baha's bail, already garnering over $12,000 of their $12,500 goal. D'Baha, you are an inspiration to us all. We leave you with this perfect tweet. @RayRiveraLive5 Racist's worst nightmare coming true. "My God, it's happening," he thinks as a flying black activist appears out of nowhere — Olivia Rodricks (@olivia_rodricks) February 23, 2017 BONUS: Trevor Noah has a lesson on how to talk to conservatives
