I Seem to Remember a Protest on a Bridge Involving Race

Selma?  Today we have this racist madness at play in the People's Republic of California:
Students at the University of California, Berkeley held a violent protest on campus Friday to demand additional segregated “spaces of color” for non-white students.
video of the protest shows demonstrators repeatedly heckling white passersby, barring them entry to a key bridge on campus by forming a human chain while simultaneously allowing students of color to pass unmolested.
At one point, the video even shows a protester refusing to allow an older white man to cross the bridge, eventually directing him to cross by way of a creek that flows underneath the bridge.
Just a few moments later, another white man attempted to cross the bridge by forcing his way through the crowd, only to be surrounded by a mob of students who began shouting expletives at him as they pushed him back in the direction he had come from.
Time and again, white students and professors were denied entry to the bridge as they were surrounded by aggressive protesters shouting “go around!”
Apparently, protesters were angered because one of their “safe spaces” was relocated to the basement of a building where it had previously occupied the fifth floor. When protesters were asked about the motive for their demonstration, though, they refused to be recorded, leaving little to no explanation for the rationale behind such an aggressive protest.

I detest bullying of any kind. When a group which demands respect is unwilling to show the same respect, they deserve none at all.

This isn't an entire race bullying an individual of another race because of perceived justification, it is just another mob.

I wonder if these people expect to be bailed out when Police finally have to arrest them under such charges as assault and battery. Lots of people were involved in the occupy movement expecting they would be bailed out after arrest on trespassing charges. Last I heard the "unofficial" leaders of that movement took the money accumulated by donors and went on a world tour instead of bailing out the jailed members.
