BLM takes over stage at the Montreal jazz festival

large crowd dressed in black gathered Sunday afternoon on the apartment building steps of Pierre Coriolan, a 58-year-old black man who was fatally shot by Montreal police this week.

Following the vigil, the crowd of hundreds marched along Ste-Catherine Street and members of the groups ended up on one of the stages at the Jazz Festival at Places des Arts. It then made a stop at Montreal police's headquarters on St-Urbain Street.

The demonstration comes just days after police were called to Coriolan's apartment on the corner of Robillard and St-André streets at around 7 p.m. last Tuesday. Neighbours said a man was destroying items in his home.

When police arrived, they said he confronted them with a screwdriver in each hand.

The fact that Coriolan was black raised immediate concern among activists earlier this week, who fear racial profiling could have to do with how officers respond when people of colour are in distress.

Instead of everything being all about white Canadians, like it was back when everything was perfect.

Yeah, that's exactly what I said you jackwitted racist. It was a goddam jazz festival, not a hug-a-White cop rally.
Oh wait. Since several of the jazz festival participants were White, I guess that would be cultural appropriation.
