Hundreds of people have been arrested and jailed over January 6th. What privilege do they enjoy?

The College Fix reports:

Professor: Educators should teach January 6 was a ‘case study in white privilege’

Another black academic has chimed in on the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Capitol “insurrection,” opining that the nation’s teachers should make it a “case study in white privilege.”

USC’s Shaun Harper, executive director of the campus Race and Equity Center, echoes prominent anti-racism guru Ibram Kendi in that January 6, 2021 was all about the benefits of having white skin.

“[I]t is important to remember and acknowledge the role race played,” Harper writes in Education Week“The overwhelming majority of insurrectionists were white, and most were white men.”

Seemingly unaware of information that has come out in the past year (not to mention, government officials wouldn’t get involved in any sort of shenanigans, right?), Harper (left) says he “sat in shock” as the crowd “stormed” and “overtook” the Capitol.

“They flooded one of the highest-security buildings in Washington [and] it baffled me that some were able to make it onto the floor of the U.S. Senate.”

Also apparently unaware of the reactions to the protests and riots of the summer before, the education and business professor then ponders “What would have happened had these been Black people?”

Ignorant douchebag.

[January 6 detainee Jacob] Lang says he was saving lives from police brutality. He said he attempted to pull the body of Rosanne Boyland out of a Capitol tunnel after “police beat her on the ground and pushed a massive swarm of people on top of her.” Boyland died that day.

Another man present that day, Phillip Anderson, filed an affidavit with the court saying that Lang saved his life. Anderson said police were using “excessive force” against him and he could not breathe. He said he heard Lang warning the crowd, including officers, that people were being crushed. “Jake proceeded to save my life by pulling me out of the pile of people. If Jake was not present to help me, I would have died on January 6, 2021, and it would have been because of the actions that the police took,” Anderson, who is black, wrote.

“This story could actually be the opposite of kneeling on George Floyd,” [Lang] said. “An unarmed black man [Anderson] almost died at the hands of police brutality on the steps of the Capitol and he was saved by a white Jewish Trump supporter. Where’s that headline?”
