A new Pew Research Center survey found that out of the 615 respondents who attended a protest or rally related to race in the past month, the vast majority were young and 79% leaned towards the Democratic Party. The survey showed that only 17% of the Black Lives Matter protesters were black, while 46% were white, 22% were Hispanic, and 8% were Asian.

In recent weeks, a wave of Black Lives Matter protests swept across America with people hitting the streets in huge numbers to call for an end to systematic racism and radical police reform. Just who were the protestors? A new Pew Research Center survey of 9,654 adults found that 6% of respondents attended a protest or rally focusing on issues related to race or racial equality in the past month, a sizeable share given that the U.S. is in the midst of a deadly pandemic. The vast majority of attendees were generally young and leaning towards the Democratic Party.

Out of the 615 adults who attended a protest in the past month, 46% were White, 22% were Hispanic, 17% were Black and 8% were Asian. According to Pew Research, protest attendees tended to be nonwhite given the overall number of adults polled – 64% of total respondents were White, 15% were Hispanic, 11% were Black and 5% were Asian. Around 4-in-10 of those who hit the streets were younger than 30 while older Americans were underrepresented at the protests.

Unsurprisingly, given that the vast majority of protests occurred in major U.S. cities, 83% of protest attendees were from urban or suburban areas while 17% were from rural parts of the country. When it comes to political affiliation, 79% of participants identified with or leaned towards the Democratic Party compared to just 17% who leaned towards or identified with the GOP. Pew also noted that there is not a significant difference in terms of gender among protestors while they also differ little from the general population in terms of income and educational attainment.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)

Isn’t it something? The few blacks in the crowds seem to be oblivious to the fact they’re surrounded by mostly white faces, if they’re visible at all under masks, glasses and hoodies, that is!? The irony is just too delicious!? I hope they all get what they deserve somehow, somewhere, someday!? Would just like to be able to see justice served up nice and HOT for ’em!
