I support the gist of your article, but this bit seems at least partly incorrect. I’ve seen those videos come by, and from those I got the impression that first of all, there were as many black as white people involved, and it seems at least a number of them were in n the garden. That, for me, doesn’t justify what the McCloskeys did, but it weakens your story.

Other than that – I’m sorry this has gotten so out of hand in the US, despite all past efforts. I dislike all the capitalization and polarization going on right now – we are all people, as far as I know and we are all in this together.
