A black militia group who describe themselves as the “Not Fucking Around Coalition” (NFAC), joined Black Lives Matter (BLM) for a planned protest in Louisville, KY. The NFAC members showed up to the protest heavily armed but not readily trained.
Three members were shot after one of it members accidentally fired several shots during the Black Lives Matter protest. The rally had bean held to protest the death of Breonna Taylor by Louisville police.
“We are a Black militia. We aren’t protesters, we aren’t demonstrators. We don’t come to sing, we don’t come to chant. That’s not what we do.”
What do they do then? Well, on Independence Day, Jay said:
“Our initial goal was to have a formation of our militia in Stone Mountain to send a message that as long as you’re abolishing all these statues across the country, what about this one?”
