A viral TikTok shows a group of white men dubbed “all lives matters bros” calling the police on a group of Black people. During the altercation, one of the men tells a Black TikToker, “I bet you I’m more educated than you.”
TikTok user @jaykenzo16 posted the video on Nov. 12, and since then, it’s received over 51,000 views. The caption says: “Joe Biden winning didn’t change a thing” and includes the hashtags “Black Lives Matter” and “all cops are bastards.”
The incident took place at a Hotel Hendricks rooftop bar in New York City. The clip begins with two white men sitting at a table with tall cans of Bud Light, a container of nachos, and a package of Oreos.
A group of people behind the camera, including the person filming, are arguing with the white men about Black Lives Matter. “When I asked you if Black lives matter, you could’ve just said yes,” says one person from behind the camera. One of the white men responds, “All lives matter, baby.”
After a jump edit, the same white man tells someone behind the camera, “I bet you I’m more educated than you.”
“That’s racist,” says a person behind the camera. He asks why. After another jump cut, the police have arrived. One of the white men tells the group behind the camera, “The police are here for you, and you, and you.”
“Dude, you don’t need protection,” says a person behind the camera, insinuating the white men have called the police on Black people as a threat and to enforce racist ideologies.
After the next cut, a New York Police Department officer whose nametag identifies him as Officer Hintze is talking to the filmer’s crew. “What are you gonna do? You’re allowed to say what you wanna say,” he tells her. “Your friend just called me a Nazi. I’m not a Nazi.”
“Is that offensive to you?” says someone behind the camera.
“So you guys can walk away,” Hintze continues. “You’re allowed to say what you want in America.”
Someone behind the camera says, “So if we want to take a harassment report, we will.” The video ends there.
