One of the most prestigious Black churches in Washington D.C. has filed a lawsuit against members of the white supremacicst group the Proud Boys for reputedly burning the church’s Black Lives Matter sign.
The lawsuit was filed this week by Kristen Clarke, the head of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. It accuses the Proud Boys of attacking Metropolitan A.M.E. Church and “engaging in acts of terror and vandalizing church property in an effort to intimidate the Church and silence its support for racial justice.”
The Metropolitan A.M.E. Church is just one of the churches that was reputedly attacked by Trump supporters in D.C. over the course of the December 12 protests. Video evidence taken outside A.M.E. shows men dressed in black and gold jumping the church’s fense and tearing down the BLM sign.
