Nearly two-thirds of the 60 people arrested Friday night during riots in downtown Detroit over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis were from the citys predominantly white suburbs.
Thirty-seven of those taken into custody were from places like Warren, Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield and even Grand Blanc, which is about 60 miles (96 kilometers) northwest of Detroit, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Saturday....Although Detroit is about 80% black, many of those arrested were white.

At first, wasn’t it reported that the protesters in Minnesota were from other states.
So were those arrested in MN from their suburbs? Or were they ANTIFA members giving fake MN addresses?
This stat means nothing. The Antifa Organizers and Agitators are well trained. They are unlikely to be arrested. They are there to rile up the crowd. To work them up into a furious emotional condition and then they fade away once they have accomplished this task.
The Bernie Brigades are out in force it looks like.
Its a bunch of boyz from the hood, plus John Cusack.
Minnesota leaders say arrested protesters are not local residents: ‘We don’t know these folks’
The St. Paul mayor is saying this.
The OWSers were primarily middle and upper-middle-class whites. I read articles several years ago stating that Antifa is the Owsers under a new name but with the exact same goals and intent. I found those articles quite convincing.
The Mayors and Media want confusion.
Not their peeps. Captain Obvious
You think theyre going to take responsibility?
I expect all of them will be out of jail tomorrow and all charges will be dropped by a leftist judge in the in-justice system.
This is exactly what happened to all of the terrorists who destroyed Washington DC on President Trump’s inauguration day. Leftist judges dropped all the charges.
Maybe the cops arent arresting the black looters as much as they could be?? Hmmm....
An acronym for One Wall Street. The “protesters” that were conducting Nationwide “protests” 9 years ago all across the country and trashing every place they went. They were an orchestrated Liberal reaction to the grassroots Tea Party groups that sprung up in opposition to Obama’s agenda.
That could be the case, and I’m actually kind of okay with that in that arresting white people over blacks kind of gets in the way of the racist arguments. Plus, one could argue that someone looting the stores in their own neighborhood is not as bad as outsiders setting fires and bashing in windows of stores in an area where they don’t live.
It’s not as if we have the jail cells to hold everyone taking part in these riots, anyway.
Occupy Wall Street.
I hate this dismissive theyre out of towers garbage, trying to shift blame. The truth is invariably, they are METROPOLITAN AREA members, so its really the same as the city limits itself.
Waiting for the Catonsville and Towson Are not Baltimore equivocation. Its nonsense.
planned terrorist socialist activity
Agreed - good points
Yes. You are correct. Thank you. Don’t know why I said One.
